UPC Cablecom invoice - what is this for?

Hi,

Today I received an invoice for CHF500 from Cablecom and I'm just wondering what it is actually for.

I've received similar invoices in the past and paid, but just wondering if someone can explain what it is actually for.

It contains the lines:
3-in-1 Kabelanschluss (3-in-1 cable connection)
Nutzungsentgelt Kabelnetz Basel (Usage fee cable network Basel)
Gratis Unterhalt Gebäudeverkabelung (Free maintenance of building cabling)
Urheber-und Interpretenrechte (Copyright and artist rights)

The majority of the bill (416.40) is the first line for 3-in-1.

Just seems a bit strange that I have a 3-in-1 package with them (Phone, Internet., TV), for which I'm paying 109 per month, but the reality is you end up paying 150 per month.

Re: UPC Cablecom invoice - what is this for?

The "extra" amount is your basic connection fee to the network (Nutzungsentgelt Kabelnetz Basel). Currently

39.90 CHF */month (which matches your 150 a month: 39 + 109)

Re: UPC Cablecom invoice - what is this for?

is your subscription an old one? I changed mine to a newer version a year or two ago, and in their newer ones the connection fee is included. previously I had to pay it as part of the landlords extra charges. now I just pay the cablecom bill for the subscription.
