Re: Best internet in Switzerland

I believe only glass fiber can deliver 1Gb/s. I know Cablecom offers only up to 500Mb/s; Swisscom on the other hand does have a 1Gb/s package. I doubt ANY other company can guarantee better net reliability and stability as either of them.

Re: Best internet in Switzerland

Swisscom, Sunrise, Init7 and probably several others offer 1 Gbps. Salt offers 10 Gbps (no, that's not a typo - to answer the question I most often get). Cablecom/UPC only gives up to 500 Mbps if I remember correctly.

Most providers if not all have an "availability checker" on their website which can tell you what service is available at your exact address.

https://www.swisscom.ch/en/residenti...ker-popup.html

Indeed, you can only get to gigabit or above with a fiber optic connection. In most locations (all that I know of), the fiber network and ports are installed by the local utility company and are provider-neutral (if you have the plug, you should be able to pick any provider).

Re: Best internet in Switzerland

Just checked: Init7 offers only 500Mb/s if a few randomly selected locations in downtown Lugano. That probably means that they don't offer fiber in the city yet. Salt, Swisscom and Sunrise do (in the same randomly checked addresses).

Yeah, I have nothing better to do right now.
