Swisscom has an online tool to check service availability in your building. I'm quite confident other providers like cablecom etc. have a similar tool. You will have to check availability with each of these providers to know if you can receive an internet connection or not.

The last time I used the tool it provided a "theoretical" connection - IE service is available in that area but your specific building may or may not be connected.

It is totally impossible that Swisscom do not offer any connectivity in Baar - Swisscom are required by law to provide service.

I can only find German language material that describes the "Grundversorgungsauftrag" (https://www.swisscom.ch/content/dam/...sorgung-de.pdf)

Re: internet possibilities in Baar

Init7 seems to have their Copper7 offering in Baar. Any feedback from the field? They don't show you the actual speed until their technician does check the socket.

It is available in Baar.

https://www.init7.net/en/internet/fiber7/

Type in your address and see what is available. Most likely you will only have a copper line into your home. The best offer at my home is 40up/16down Mbit/sec. This is similar to Swisscom which we had in the past.

I believe Databaar has a monopoly on private fiber optics for the masses, (older buildings).

I have it in my rental accommodations and it definitely does the job for me.

In the end we opted for init7 and it has been great so far. 400+Mbps up and the FritzBox router ain't bad at all.
