Need competent company for telephone/electrical works in Geneva

I have been trying for the last 30 minutes to find a Swisscom concessionaire in Geneva preferably not too far from Chambésy. Google gives a lot of partially weird answers that have nothing to do with my question. I found some electricians in Vesenaz and Carouge but nothing nearer. In the end it pointed me at least to the very interesting thread about changing from ISDN to Analog - http://www.englishforum.ch/tv-internet-telephone/23299-telephone-connected-swisscom-no-connection.html

The Swisscom line 0800.800.800 is so busy they don’t even put you on the waiting list.


My problems:

I want to change from ISDN to Analog but I don’t want to buy Swisscom phones any more. Always bought the ‘haut de gamme’ and they never lasted. According to Siemens certain of their Gigaset models work with both ISDN and Analog but until I get Swisscom on the phone to confirm this I won’t be able to buy one.


Apart from the telephone issue I need to do extensive electrical installation and repair work in my place. Can anybody recommend a good company for this ?

Thank you for the link - I had googled without success but then Google is no longer what it used to be.

I would still be interested if anybody has specific recommendations. The last company I employed was not very satisfactory and the works I need to undertake are extensive. Language is no problem. I speak German, English and French.
