fiber optics Internet connection in Basel

Last year Swisscom was making fiber optics infrastructure in my district in Basel. My flat is connected too. And it is estimated that in 2012 50% of flats in Basel will have such a connection.

However, over last year I received no offers for the fiber channel connection and I am still using the old Cablecom DSL connection. I also googled several times with no success.

Does anyone know an Internet service provider in Basel who offers connections over the newly build fiber optic channels??

Re: fiber optics Internet connection in Basel

It takes a while to go install fiber connections in every home/building. You're luck to have one already

You can ask them about connections:

...or wait, Swisscom and Sunrise are paying for it, so I suppose they will be offering internet services?

Re: fiber optics Internet connection in Basel

The links you sent are about constructing the infrastructure, not the end user offers. Checked Sunrise: they offer only ADSL and ISDN (and mobile of course).

I have found offers in Bern, Schaffhausen and Zug, and prices are little higher than Cablecom, but most likely the quality is better.
