If you need data only, Sunrise has a great deal, for 10CHF/month unlimited, but throttled to 2Mbps.

There aren't many virtual-operators on Swisscom. Wingo, Lyca are the main ones, Mucho Mobile is using their 3G net (no 4G) and Fust has a new abo using Swisscom, I forget the name. Next year UPC will move their subscriptions to Swisscom also, IIRC.
I found the new Swisscom brand you mentioned. Yes it is sold via FUST and Interdiscount. It is called Simply Mobile.

CHF 29.90/month unlimited calls/sms but capped at 2GB data. The difference from other offers is that the unused data stays in the account. Could be helpful for certain people who have heavy and light months (travel, vacation etc.).

It probably won't make sense for our needs (a bit expensive for just data) but in case someone is interested, here is the link.

Great news for all existing Yallo customers, who have helped finance this deal by paying double...

Hi Jaceq, thanks for the great news, I just clicked online and there was a PDF file "extension-" downloaded and seems I get 29 CHF with Minimum contract duration: 0 months, does it mean I succeeded? I don't even receive an Email from them

This option didn't seem to exist a few days ago: we could only reach 46 CHF for 24 more months "engagement"

Hi all

I am currently with Yallo Fat (Yallo seems to use Sunrise's network), I pay 58 CHF per month for the package including unlimited data (can be cheaper if I engage another 12 months as my initial contract duration has already passed)

While the download speed seems to be good with HD films, I don't know if the coverage/signal is that good. sometimes I cannot hear the conversation any more or lose signal while I see other people around are still talking normally.

Which operator provides the best Internet connection/download speed/coverage/signal based on an unlimited data package? I use my cellphone as hotspot at home to provide Internet access for my PC so unlimited data is essential.

Thanks
We're happy with Salt, 68chf for unlimited data in CH, 1GB in EU, unlimited voice and text in EU.

Never had issue with signal, in my previous apartment I cancelled the landline broadband because I had all on mobile, not with super giga walls, I needed to have landline again because in one side of the apartment there's not 4G but it's not Salt fault.

S.

I second this. Mobile Internet Start: https://www.sunrise.ch/en/residentia...net-start.html

It's an amazingly good offer.

Re: unlimited data for a cellphone contract, which operator has the best speed/covera

I think the mobile phone offer from yallo at 29chf per month is just unbeatible right now.

Sunrise offer is only for data; doesn't include voice and morover is capped to 2MBps - which in 2018 is a joke, honestly. what is the point of have unlimited internet in the phone if you can not stream videos with this speed.


For yallo you can use my referal code ---> yamax3xa9y
(one month for free)


Cheers!

I use this as a backup to my other LTE connection.. the sunrise
connection is great because you can switch the subscription
at ANY TIME for any length.. 1 hour 1 day 1 week and your only
charged for the time your on the higher tier..

so I keep the 9f 2m rolling along.. when dsl/SALT LTE died last week
logged into sunruse, bumped the sub from 9/49f month for unlimited speed
used it for 2 days and bumped it back down to 9f/month after that..

perfect.
