Internet Options in Geneva


Just found out that my flat isn't eligible for Cablecom so I'm now looking into either Swisscom ADSL or the Orange Flybox. I'd prefer the first, but was wondering if a telephone line is required for it, as 50+25 CHF isn't exactly the greatest bargain for internet - I will not be using the phone line much, if at all, and would just as soon prefer a cable without voice capabilities.

The other option I'm looking into is the Orange Home Pack, which uses the 'Flybox', but I'm concerned about speeds. I don't need to be blazing fast but ideally it would be better than the terrible wifi I'm able to 'borrow' at the moment, which works just for email and news and not much besides text.

Any thoughts on Orange's Flybox or experience with getting a ADSL connection without paying for a voice line?
