Internet Options for 8132 Egg, including GGA Cable

Friend needs some help/advice for internet connection in 8132 Egg.

No Fibre is available at the address.

Possible Options that I have come up with are:
  • GGA Cable
  • Swisscom ADSL
  • Sunrise ADSL
  • Salt 4G (with Huawei E5885 - Box) - says upto 1G speed

Any advice or other suggestions?

I have GGA at exactly the same place.

The 100/50 package, works quite good with my own router.

The one supplied with them is poor and unstable.

Hi, Thanks for the info. Will start off with Salt 4G with a new Fritzbox and see how it goes. Can get a 'Duo Card' with just internet and only 10chf per month which can be stopped and started as needed.

Salt is the worst operator in data by far.

You'll see it very fast.

Tried both a Salt Sim and Swisscom Sim at my home (A.a.A), Swisscom gives less than 10Mb download, Salt around 30 down and 15 up.

Will compare these in Egg tonight.

Sunrise (yallo) gives about 50Mb in Scheuren and 40 in Egg for download.
