What is the best carrier in west part of Switzerland(salt, sunrise, or swisscom)?

I take a train to commute from Vevey to Geneva everymorning.
I'm using Salt, but internet connection is so bad in the train always.

Which one is the most stable foe the internet connection among swiss mobile company?

Probably Swisscom but way more expensive.

Migros M-Mobile uses the Swisscom network, it's a cheaper way to access the same network.

I use Yallo, on sunrise network.

See the Connect test

No surprise on Salt being the worst.

Even Swisscom drops out for a minute at Coppet .. Apart from that little blackspot it's fine between Nyon - Geneve.
I stream video the whole way and usually i don't notice the dead spot because of buffer.. Only if I try to load something just at that point.

From other people's reports, Sunrise is nice everywhere except near my workplace. I'm working and living near EPFL and here the connection is really bad as it's near the lake.
I would suggest you buy different pre-paid cards and test. I've done a contract to Sunrise as it looks like it has good network coverage but where I need it is really bad. I needed some calls to solve my issue. and canceling the contract... It will depend on your area so I really recommend you to test all the options.
I've moved from Portugal and there we don't have so huge differences between carriers. There are some remote regions where one or another doesn't have a good network but in populated areas, they are very similar.

Swisscom. No issues for me here. Great service too.
Though my OH cannot get a connection along the lake when hes visiting me from the UK and he switches from EE to Swisscom.
