Internet on a 6 month Contract in Basel.

Hi all,

apologies if this has been covered before, but I am moving to Switzerland in a few weeks on an initial 6 month contract, the place I am moving to has not got internet, so I need to sort that out myself, I am not so keen on buying a dongle, as I normally watch films online etc... so 5gb would not be enough per month through a dongle.
I was wondering if anyone was in a similar situation or could recommend any internet service providers that offer 6 month contracts?
I did read somewhere that the contract can be cut if you leave the country?
So was thinking I might be able to break a 12 month contract if needed.

Any advice or suggestions greatly appreicated,

Re: Internet on a 6 month Contract in Basel.

Maybe you should take a second look at mobile Internet.
Swisscom allows contracts with no minimum duration (2 months notice to cancel), the limit is 10GB monthly, and after it they reduce the speed but you don't pay more.
And if at some point you urgently need higher speeds while you are throttled, you can buy an additional package of 1GB for 15 CHF.

I hope you find some landline opton, but if not, well..... try this.
