Whilst it may sound good today, is 1 (gbps) going to be enough in the future.......

10753?

(Can't believe I remember that number still, which was the one I used. LOL)
At one time I had a list of about 5 of those numbers, because one was cheaper for France, one for the US, and so on. Happy days when I was poorer😀

Re: Sunrise Internet unlimited (1gbps) for 35 chf for ever

I just asked my Zürinet provider if they are willing to bend their prices for me or else it's a Salt/Sunrise deal (that's what I call talking out of a position ).

So they called my all-in, and they stated that with them (Internet Group) I have the fiber to myself, whereas with Salt and Sunrise I need to share the physical medium with many more customers, making it "much slower in response times". And that it's a "completely different product".

Now I wonder what actually is different? 'Cause the only stretch of fiber I have to myself - I guess - in both situations is the one leading up to my flat from the basement. Anything that reaches the first 'core switch' of the building - or area I'm living in - will then be routed onto the backbone network of the provider. So how is this different in the two ways? I guess Sunrise is also using the Zürinet (in B2B I know they rent the fiber from Swisscom).
I consider this statement from the Internet Group proofless (=BS).

It would certainly be cheaper for Sunrise or Salt to have less fiber capacity and spread it more clients (more leaves than spine in SDN lingo), however, this would make them build a parallel, Zürinet-light, which I don't think they want or can do - so my assumption is that the physical medium is also the exact same.

Could anyone please confirm or deny the above?

I am also with them and I don't know if it is technically true or not but I got a similar BS response from them, along the lines of:

Quote:
Internet group cannot offer dumping offers.

Internet Group offers an open peering policy to all participants of the Internet and provides all support services from Switzerland, also by phone. The network is also open and any router can be connected.

Sunrise, on the other hand, provides support from Izmir in Turkey and costs 1.50 CHF / minute. This can be very expensive with a technical problem. The network is closed and the peering policy is selective. This is cheaper for the market, but does not have the same quality.

Should you wish to terminate your contract, you can do so in writing by post. The next possible termination date is 31.12.2019.
When I queried the termination date, the customer service turned 360 degrees and got progressively worse when I told them that I was happy to take the risk with Sunrise. They are insistent that I can only make an early termination for a couple of hundred bucks. Not decided whether I am going to challenge it or not but irrespective, they have p!ssed me off enough that I will happily swallow the couple hundred and move even to a more expensive provider if I have to!

For what it is worth, I was with Sunrise before I moved to IG and I didn't have a single issue with speed/service.

so, I had some concerns with Sunrise so far, now I know I won't go there.

I made a deal with my current ISP for 40CHF per month on the 100/100 package. I don't need more speed (only occasionally) and I'm happy to waste that 12x5 CHF to save my nerves.

Rather because it's not worth for me to save 5 francs a month to swap to a provider who is shady enough from the start.

And there's a connection fee and potentially an exit fee too.

Nice. Annoying I don't have fibre in my current place
have you checked if they will install it? I didn't have it at my place and they installed it for free... although it took them over a month to come and it.
