Swisscom Infinity packages -S/M?

Hi,
I'm hoping someone can give me his own experience or insights into this. I currently resigned from sunrise (120chf/month) and plan to move to swisscom.
I'm not sure which plan to pick as the ultimate motivation is costs savings, abo for >100chf for an average smartphone user as me is insane.. But I'm bit confused which one to pick? Swisscom infinity S or M? Or do you have any other suggestions?
I do not watch TV or streamline, I intent to use the phone for calls, internet light browsing, emailing and then some few applications, skype, etc.
I would go for S but the sales man discouraged me that the connection speed is like old 3G (1Mbit/s) - is that a bad thing ?
Most of the time I am in the areas with wifi..

any suggestions?
thanks a lot

Maybe also take a look at upc cablecom offers. www.upc.ch or, if in Zürich, visit their shop at Limmatquai 18

Re: Swisscom Infinity packages -S/M?

I am pretty happy with S. Haven't really felt that I am waiting too long for simple stuff.

No, it isn't.

BTW, I'm quite happy with Infinity S. Except when downloading large files, I hardly notice a difference to the unlimited speed I had before.

Only drawback: I can't access Swisscom's LTE network (yet?) which would probably improve speed when the network is slow due to congestion.

Re: Swisscom Infinity packages -S/M?

Thanks guys; the S package is 75chf/mo and M is 99chf/mo.
With discount I can get the S for 65chf/mo .. seems to me like the best option. Glad to hear you don't see any speed issues.
nice weekend!

Which network does Coopmobile use? Swisscoms or Orange?

yeah, I switched to L for 2 reasons: I have to go abroad with my classes several times a year and like the data allowance. 2nd I have great 3G and 4G reception at work and I use the phone for tethering a lot. I usually get more than 14mbit/s via 3G and the full 21mbit/s via 4G, so yes - I definitely notice a massive difference.
