Seeking electrician for internet/phone connection in Neuchatel

Looking for an electrician in the Neuchatel area to set up the phone line for internet. Previous tenants not with Swisscom so apparently need to organise for a new line or box thing into the apartment. Thank you!

No, Swisscom told us that we need to organise ourselves. Supposedly easy and common job for electrician. Just hoping for recommendations

Give your landlord/hauswart a call. They usually have a "house electrician" they work with.

Any electrician can do it, but the room where the connections are isn't always open to the public, so you may need to call the housewart in the end.

To the OP hauswart = concierge in these parts.

Contact the landlord/managenent company in the first instance as they may have an electrician they use.
I could recommend the electrician we use but as far as I know they don't speak any English.

You have already the recommendation. Contact the person in charge of your house.

Usually one has to get an OK from the person in charge of your house. If the work involves making holes etc then they should be advised first.

Here in the German part there is usually a notice board by the entrance door with emergency numbers.

Unlikely that they would need to drill holes.

Normally it's just a matter of connecting a pair of lines from the incoming set to the two terminals for the apt.
