UPC Cablecom "Happy Home" plans and price increase

https://www.moneyland.ch/de/upc-happ...s-im-vergleich

The "Connect and Play" plans are replaced with "Happy Home" plans.

For example, the highest-performing plan is now called "Happy Home 500" (with 500 Mbps download speed and 50 upload) and costs CHF 139/month.

From the article linked above:

Quote:
A comparison with the combi subscriptions from market leader Swisscom and competitor Sunrise shows that the new UPC subscriptions are practically as expensive as comparable Swisscom subscriptions. The UPC subscriptions are only one franc cheaper than corresponding Swisscom products. The UPC subscriptions "Happy Home 50" and "Happy Home 200" each cost around CHF 4 more than comparable Sunrise products. However, there may be differences in Internet speed or TV offerings.
So congratulations, UPC! You're now just as expensive as Swisscom!

The upside is that Powerline adaptors are included in some plans, and that existing subscribers will get double the current speed with no price increase. There's also a "try 30 days for free" offer.

UPC keep emailing me offering the package I’m currently paying CHF85 a month for CHF120. I’m still thinking about it...

" HappyHome". What a stupid company this is. And its not Cablecom.
Its UPC! Swisscom at least gives value for money which UPC never gives.

Re: UPC Cablecom "Happy Home" plans and price increase

i was on a 72 CHF UPC package until 1 month ago but cancelled because it was too expensive. that same package would now be 119 CHF per month.

happy that I changed to a 29 CHF fibre glass Sunrise connection.

UPC belongs to Liberty Global one of the biggest international Telecom companies in the world.They don't give a shit about ripping you people off with their primitive services and crazy prices that go up every year. At least Swisscom is Swiss owned. Make Switzerland great again!

Re: UPC Cablecom "Happy Home" plans and price increase

I’d gladly move away from UPC but we can’t get fiber here and the fastest Swisscom offers is 98 MBit/s. From UPC I get a constant 488 MBit/s. We only get internet from them though.

You lucky devil

I would get 9Mbit down and 0.6Mbit up
And no, they're not planing to fix that. And they're not sorry about not planning it either.

I don't expect you to take my word for that
