Re: Sunrise takes over UPC

But what about quality? They sent out a letter saying the service will be faster. I'm not sure about others' experiences, but UPC was quite patchy during the night. I wonder if I should switch to Swisscom.

Re: Sunrise takes over UPC

I like Sunrise, I don't like UPC.

Thus, my feelings are mixed, but I'd rather have it this way than UPC taking over Sunrise.

Re: Sunrise takes over UPC

I am counting the days to exit SALT and am hesitating; UPC was running on Swisscom so far, if the acquisition is approved, they may switch to Sunrise...

Question then is - would this be grounds for early termination?

I have the opposite feeling.

We had a terrible experience with Sunrise and have been incredibly happy with UPC.
I hope it doesn’t all go to pot when Sunrise takes over.

A take-over or a network change are no legal grounds for an early termination.

Re: Sunrise takes over UPC

Very happy with UPC too. We have the Internet 200lite package and the unlimited swiss mobile with 10gb roaming package. Quite cheap for Switzerland. It does sometimes go a bit patchy at the boarder but resolves itself quickly. I cant really criticise the service. Only thing that "annoys" me is that whenever i call them, it takes ages to find an English speaking advisor, eventhough the service, website,bills etc are all advertised to be in english. 1st world problem! no biggie!

Switch to Yallo without minimal contract duration and you won't have a problem on that side
