New in Neuchatel: Need internet at flat

Dear all

Finally we reached in Neuchatel.

We need internet at flat, could anyone suggest good and cheap solution for it?
ADSL/cable, what options are available. We dont need TV etc.

Is it possible to have telephone line + internet together?

thank you.

If there is already a cable connection in your apartment/building, sometimes you are obliged to pay for that so you are stuck with that provider.

The cheapest Swisscom fixed net offering appears to be CHF 34.- (plus c. CHF 26.- for the mandatory phone connection) . . .

There maybe better alternatives for your requirements. Other possible providers are sunrise, cablecom etc. but look here for a comparison:

You go first to the company that is already supplying your apartment with the TV or telephone cable: Swisscom / Orange / Sunrise / Cablecom

Cablecom is best for you

Go to the Video 2000 shop in Rue de Seyon where they are very friendly and helpful or go into the big tent that is currently located on the place du port near the post office and ask at the Video2000 stand there. There are usually special 'deals' on offer during the business fair which is on at the moment.

Video2000 is the cablecom supplier for Neuchatel.

Re: New in Neuchatel: Need internet at flat

my landlord is already using dsl by swisscom, but i cannot afford paying 69chf/m for it.

Thats why i am looking for some cheaper solution. I checked comparis, but i found wrong information, http://en.comparis.ch/telecom/adsl/a...G_ADSLstandard

It is showing 15chf for sunrise, but indeed sunrise dont offer anything less than 40chf. How comparis spreading wrong info?

Though sunrise is bit attraction for me, 40chf/m with landline. any other suggestion please?

Comparis states that he Sunrise offer is 'limited'. It sounds like you are in 'Swisscom' house.
Well you could also hope someone else in the house will let you use their wireless lan and get a prepaid mobile phone.

Re: New in Neuchatel: Need internet at flat

finally got UPC Cablecom three in one horizon. 5mb/sec, phone line, TV and FREE wifi in whole Swiss, in 25CHF/month. It was what i was looking far.

Very happy with that. Download at torrent goes to stable point of 650kbps. I would highly recommend anyone looking for cheaper but good deal. Thanks to all above people tried to help me.

Do you want the TV part? You'll have to pay Billag (TV licence), which is another CHF40/month. See plenty of other EF threads on this topic.
