TV socket --> Internet?

In my apartment I only have TV and radio socket, and with no phone line or modem socket.
What kind of service for Internet only, who supports signaling directly from TV socket, should I purchase? Swisscom or Cabelcom? Now I am thinking of prepaid Monzoon but they only offer DSL service with phone line.

Re: TV socket --> Internet?

Who is your cable provider?

That's who controls Internet via those cables.

Try and join UPC-Cablecom, they send you a replacement TV-Radio-Internet wall connection.

Check here, type in your address http://www.upc-cablecom.ch/en/tools/...rkeit-pruefen/

Surely I'm wrong. I have T+T83 socket but does anyone have any idea where i can find a adapter from T+T83 to RJ11 (for DSL). In Toppreise I can only find TT83 to RJ12

Those 2 sockets are at least 25 years old (Telephone, Fax machine). It will be cheaper and easier to buy a new socket from Migros DIY and fit it to the wall.

Re: TV socket --> Internet?

When we joined cablecom about four years ago they sent out an electrician at their expense to change the socket for us and connect the building (cables were already in the walls). Don't know if we got lucky or if it's standard practice though.
