Re: Fibre socket installation

I guess it depends to whom fibre belongs to.
Didn't want to belittle your savings of said 1100 CHF, but I doubt it is the average joe's ability to lay cables from the cellar to upper floors. The point is, if your fiber network was build in cooperation (local electric company and swisscom usually), what consitutes the VAST majority of all fiber accesses (cities and suburbs), then the connection up to every single apartment is also provided "for free" anyway usually (unless for new erected buildings since then). So no point fiddling around yourself.

The minority cases, where ONLY Swisscom offers his fiber it might be an option. But one will need a specialist anyway for the splicing of the fibers etc.. this is definitely no do-it-yourself job. As for the landlords, they surely "elegantly" will try to push the task off their responsability and "hopefully" delegate it to each individual. While basically in fact they are committed to provide/intermediate/organise each apartment's connection, and surely are not entitled to do nothing at all.
