Internet on mobile, flat?

Hello everybody!

I'll spend 6 months in Zurich starting in February, and I currently own a Samsung Galaxy S. I'm used to be always connected to the internet, here in Italy I use a pre-paid and pay 5€/month to have 3GB/month @ 7.2Mb/s, maximum of course.

Is there anything like that in Switzerland? Cheaper? Better?

I need to stay there for 6 months so I really don't want to get a 2-years contract, what would you suggest?

Lebara recently launched this scheme - http://www.lebara-mobile.ch/en/inter...your_phone.php

Should be enough for just surfing, youtube may eat up the limits.

Wow 4.9chf/m is cheap, but 120MB aren't much for a month :O still including the 0.10 chf/Mb is the best I can see around, thanks!

Do you use that operator? Are you happy with the quality of their service?

I think it very much depends upon where you are going to be using the phone for the internet.

Swisscom do a lot of hotspots, so it might be a good idea to go with them and then use wifi wherever one of their hotspots exists.

Similarly, a lot of places have wifi access and it might alleviate matters also.

How much does it cost to use Swisscom's hotspots? Is there a bandwidth cap?
The most convenient offer I've found on their site seems paying 53 chf /month for 200 hour, it doesn't seem much convenient.
