Is Interxs reliable?

Hello everyone.

While I was searching to find which is the best value for money Internet option, I came across Interxs.
The weird part, is that I cannot find any reference to this company. Their presence in Web is limited to their website, a Facebook page with a few likes and a mention in Wikipedia.

Does any of you have experience with their services or know someone who has?
Are they reliable?

Re: Is Interxs reliable?

Hello
What I know about Interxs is, that they are a new internet provider in Switzerland and are using the Swisscom network. At the moment you can only conclude a contract on their website.
A friend of mine has been using this service for 2 months now and everything works fine. I’m also thinking to change to them, when my internet contract is expired. At the moment it’s the cheapest solution, if you want internet.

Re: Is Interxs reliable?

I know that it is an old post but just to help others looking for feedback.

I have been a (happy) costumer of InterXS for 10 months now. Their technical support is excellent (and flexible too).

There are however a few drawbacks.

1) They provide you with a native IPv6. Their VoIP phone only works in IPv6.
2) They only provide you with a NATed IPv4 unless you also purchase a fixed public IPv4 address (a modest cost but you will have to ask via technical support after you sign with them).
3) They supply you with a not so good Fritzbox (I forgot the model, but it had 2.4GHz only and with only 100Mbps LAN ports)

In my case I managed to get a fixed IPv4 and use my own Fritzbox for a very good price (in fact lower than the advertised price).

With the flexibility and the help of their advanced support I was even able to bridge the Fritzbox (I reverted later as I ended up having frequent connectivity loss of their IPv6 VoIP phone) just to demonstrate how good and flexible their advance technical service is.

Re: Is Interxs reliable?

@brunobriner, thanks for adding to this thread, I was also searching for info about them.

I am less tech-savvy than you though, and don't understand some of your post.

I would get the "Pro" package (up to 40 Mbit/s download, 8 Mbit/s upload) which is enough for me to do email, surf the internet, watch cat videos, etc. I will not use the phone line, only internet.

1) Will IPv6 vs NATed IPv4 (which I don't understand) affect me?
2) Would the supplied Fritzbox be ok for me, without upgrade?

There's no need to explain the technical side (I did start googling but it's more detailed than I need).

Thanks!

I think you should be fine.

The lack of a public IPv4 affects the ones who have to access their home network from outside, and the ones who need to port forward, for example for gaming.

As for the FritzBox, when I signed off with them the Fritzbox was crap. I don't know if it is still the case as they don't mention the model anymore in their website. In the worst case if they are still offering the same Fritzbox you will not have 5Ghz which is negative if you live in an area that is very crowded with SSID's in the 2.4GHz band.

Re: Is Interxs reliable?

Interesting, I asked my Cable internet provider about IPv6, and they said they are in no hurry to support it as they have enough IPv4 addresses available.

I know 'the world' is on the verge of running out of addresses (and some countries I think have run out), but I guess some companies bought enough in the past and don't have an issue for the moment.

I don't know now but when I was a Cablecom customer they were giving me 2x public IPv4 addresses so your assumption might be very well correct.

Re: Is Interxs reliable?

There are news for interxs. Their offers 2in1 internet+landline phone, all of them as far as i can see, are now available "without contract", as "pay as you go", cancellable per end of month. But you still have to purchase their modem/router, as it seems.

quote:
"
What is a 'Pay As You Go' subscription?

New: We now offer a contract-free internet subscription. The same quality and service, but without a permanent contract and can be terminated on a monthly basis. Look at the overview above for the details of the prices and conditions. Ideal for people staying temporarily in Switzerland."
