Re: UPC CABLECOM price increase spring 2015

I got an email from upc , if you switch now to the latest offer(horizon trios), they waive the activation fee.(Offer ends Feb 19th 2016).

http://www.upc-cablecom.ch/de/kombi-...FQT4wgodDgsL4g

Or you can make the combination whatever you want, no activation fee until Feb.19 2016

Re: UPC CABLECOM price increase spring 2015

But they're offering me now, by mail, internet 100 for the same price as internet 40 plus a new wifi modem at no cost. I don't know if that's in response to my cancellation letter or just what they're doing.

BTW, internet 40 was slower than my old internet 20 and internet 100 is maybe internet 50. I got a text message today saying they can't contact me by phone and can I call them back, but no missed calls on my phone.

Just what they're doing. No activation fee and no change in contract duration. I discovered the update with last bill, then I received a confirmation letter.

Here as well, internet 100 no faster than 50. Still enough for my needs.

Re: UPC CABLECOM price increase spring 2015

why do you accept that from Cablecom-if you have a 100 abo then thats what you should get!

Do you have Glasfaser?

Cablecom

"Volle Leistungsstärke ist bei UPC immer erhältlich: Im gesamten Netz von UPC ist unser schnellstes Internet verfügbar, für jeden." Joke from Cablecom

Re: UPC CABLECOM price increase spring 2015

Funny, just listened to the CEO Europe of Cablecom, telling us all how he had improved the brand and how happy people were with Cablecom. Might recommend reading this forum?

40 was enough, I haven't noticed the upgrade to.... 43

No idea regarding Glasfaser.

As they say "All speeds are based on best effort". But don't worry, the day I'll need more speed I'll do something.

Re: UPC CABLECOM price increase spring 2015

Next price increase.

From January 2016 you will pay at least CHF 36.90 for the basic cable connection. If the cable connection is part of your Nebenkosten bill you will have less money for heating and warm water.

https://www.upc.ch/en/about/about-us...1_10342_2rn760

Additionally, they will introduce at the end of September a new enhanced basic connection offer for CHF 49 which will include a 40Mbit/s downstream Internet connection. This offers should be an all inclusive one where the price you see is the price you pay. No other "hidden" connection fees through the Nebenkosten bill.

Important Note: UPC is already offering a similar product for the same price. But this one comes still with an additional basic cable connection charge:
https://www.upc.ch/de/internet/abonnemente/internet-40/
"Requires a 3-in-1 cable connection with feedback channel from UPC or one of our partner networks. The costs for this connection (usually CHF 33.95/month) are normally covered by the ancillary costs in rented apartments."

Re: UPC CABLECOM price increase spring 2015

Swisscom is good but I dont think internet radio is good quality like that from Cable. And with Cable connection you cannot have only radio.The basic cable connection is all in one-which it was not 10 years ago.

Yes but the TuneIn Radio is also over internet. The quality is nothing like FM from Cable

Re: UPC CABLECOM price increase spring 2015

It's still over UPC - the signal comes in through the same cable. Different signal from TV / Internet, but by the same provider.
