iWay vs. Init7 vs. Salt

Hi everyone,
I'm moving to Adliswil and I am considering getting an internet connection. I'm considering the Salt Fibre (10 Gbps non-dedicated one), Init7 (they only have a 1 Gbps offer, iFiber) and iWay (50 Mbps for 39 CHF).

While searching around, I found that the Salt offer had mixed reviews, especially about their customer service when things go haywire

While I've heard nothing but praise for Init7, their offer is a bit expensive, particularly when you consider that regular use doesn't need a 1Gbps connection. Additionally, I don't plan on using the So I end up paying more for something I won't be using.

Finally, iWay seems to have interesting and more flexible offers but I haven't heard much about them (EF has only one thread from 2 years ago).

I would like to know what's the current status of these services / offers and if there any other I'm missing. My usage profile consists mostly of Netflix / Youtube 1080p streaming, video calls and regular browsing

Re: iWay vs. Init7 vs. Salt

1) Verify what your really are able to get in the address of your new place: https://www.dschungelkompass.ch/festnetz/checker.xhtml
2) Check out all offers with rebates (a true inflation lately): https://www.dschungelkompass.ch/news/aktionen/
3) Countercheck the sites of the provider, if they really do offer their line there.
Fiber connections (once running) are pretty much hassle-free in almost all cases, so no point in investigating "what the actual status of the services" is.
