would like some input on internet options

Hi Everyone,
this is my first post to the forum, but I foresee it may not be my last since we are moving to Bern for 6 months this July, and are subletting a house from a family who are moving to NY for 6 months.
We have the option of keeping their swisscom landline and dsl line, which would cost about 75 francs / month plus per call charges (which I am not too worried about).
I am wondering whether we'd be better off accessing the internet via a prepaid mobile network instead but have little knowledge about this since we are ourselves landline / dsl users here in California. I think we will use the internet everyday, usually via our laptops and my unlocked iphone, and maybe put our average usage to 1-4 hours/per day. I don't anticipate that we'll do a whole lot of streaming of videos and such.
I would love some input on this - would it be more cost effective to simply use and pay for their existing set up, or should we go a different route?
all insights appreciated!
thanks,
elke

Re: would like some input on internet options

Welcome to the Forum. I would take over the landlords DSL line, it is the best and you probably won't get things cheaper. You can make that decision when you get here.

Getting out of communications contracts requires 2 months written notice, and only on one date per year. So quite difficult.
