Understanding wall connectors

Dears,
hope you had a great start of 2021!
I finally relocated in the new apartment in Zurich.
I spotted two wall connectors I'm not sure how to use them. It's clear that those ones belong to phone/tv but would like to clearly understand what's their purpose/specs. Furthermore, is any of those the one required for internet fiber?

Please see attached images.

Thanks a lot!

Artur

Re: Understanding wall connectors

It’s a phone connector. A Swiss speciality one...

Re: Understanding wall connectors

That's what I thought. Any clue on the second one (clear it's for the tv, less clear why there are three.)

Re: Understanding wall connectors

The 2nd one is TV, Radio and Internet. The 1st is a typical Swisscom Tel.

Thanks a lot! When you say internet, is the one that can be used for the fiber?
Thanks

I don't think you have fiber to the home, but likely to the curb FTTC with both coaxial cable (cablecom/UPC) or the phone line (swisscom), might be worth checking which one is faster when you choose operator if you want speed close to FTTH.

Re: Understanding wall connectors

The lower and smaller one is for internet. There is currently a discount for giganet 12 or 24 months, 49 chf I have just connected, totally worth it! 1000Mbps/100Mbps. SDL, the phone line, can give you max 500Mbps/100Mbps but the speed is often shared by all your neighbours from what I read over the internet so indeed the fastest SDL plan i was able to find was 100Mbps/30Mbps.
