Wingo: Swisscom's low-cost FTTH Internet service

Official site

Press release

Price: 75.-/month
Internet: 250/25 Mbps speed.
TV: optional, 14.-/month extra. 100 hours recording, no replay.
Phone: included, but all calls are paid.

Catches: Only available on fiber. The helpline is not free.

If you compare it with the Swisscom Vivo offers, it offers more browsing speed than Vivo L, which costs 139 francs a month.

M-Budget, the previous low-cost Swisscom fixed incarnation, has a cost of 84.80 at the top Internet speed of 40 Mbps (if you don't need replay TV).

Re: Wingo: Swisscom's low-cost FTTH Internet service

Does anyone actually have the 1GB connection?

All the adverts mention "speed upto 1GB" I wonder what the actual speed is?

AFAIK, you get net just below 700 MBit/s.

Fiber7 doesn't have a TV offering.

But if you don't watch TV, why would you pay extra for it (for the one or two occasions per year where you really need it)?

In my village, I can't get either, of course - but I wouldn't hesitate to choose Fiber7.

One could tell from the topic title, Swisscom and low-cost don't match.

This is just a reaction to the acquisition of Orange by Xavier Niel. He is known for disrupting markets. Very likely that 7acht.li model will de duplicated in Switzerland as well.

Re: Wingo: Swisscom's low-cost FTTH Internet service

Yes if you sign up with Wingo, Sunrise, etc. you can cancel your cable subscription. You may need to have the sockets sealed.

Re: Wingo: Swisscom's low-cost FTTH Internet service

Does anyone have any experience with Wingo to share? It's available at our place now and it's significantly faster and cheaper than our current solution (provided by Citycable). The symmetric download/upload is also quite interesting for hosting some personal home server thingies.

You only receive a private (Carrier-grade NAT) ip address and your public address is shared, you don't even get IPv6:
https://twitter.com/kuenzler/status/659676639132049408

You can forget everything that requires port forwarding, so anything server like or even some online gaming and i'd strongly advice anyone against ordering it. Have you checked if Fiber7 is available in your area?

Thanks for the info, I had no clue. It's not available, I think the only options I have here in Lausanne for FTTx are Citycable (which I currently have) and Swisscom, which are both significantly more expensive than the Wingo offer.

edit: I just realized that I'm not really up to date with the offers of Swisscom. They also seem to offer symmetric connections and the 100 Mbps one (which is fine for me), costs CHF 99 per month, not so bad.

Didn't know about that.

Re: Wingo: Swisscom's low-cost FTTH Internet service

anyone signed up yet? If I cancel my 20/2 ADSL for 60CHF a month (old product) and 22CHF cable base fee, I'm even better off.

edit: just signed up. Will keep you posted.

Re: Wingo: Swisscom's low-cost FTTH Internet service

So they are still providing Private IP's? Otherwise you would do that on your router not on the website of the ISP.

Re: Wingo: Swisscom's low-cost FTTH Internet service

Hi,

I With wingo you do not have access to the modem directly, you have very few options that you can configure from the internet GUI that is then pushed to the modem from the portal. I do have a public ip that is assigned dynamically, does people really still host at home when it is cheap or free to host outside?
