Re: Internet Connection

Our's has been spotty for about 2-3 weeks since people started working from home. We are with Swisscom as well, we are trying to use as little as possible.

Re: Internet Connection

Nope, fine here, but we did get upgraded to the fastest speed last year so maybe that makes a difference. I'm on the net, husband's doing a video conference I think and no glitches/problems at all. Also Swisscom.

Re: Internet Connection

No issues, using the hotspot on my phone. Bigger files take longer to download but then I do not expect anything else.



So far stable all during the day (also Swisscom)

Smooth like butter but I'm with the competition.

Check this site, whenever your internet works, for possible disruptions.

Re: Internet Connection

No problems here. Son is online following a lecture, hubby is on a video conference and I’m surfing the net all without issues.

We’re with UPC.

Salt 4G box here. Some pages are slow to load. Don't know if it's me or them and quite lazy to find out.

Would you notice it? I only see it sometimes from reviewing the logs not while actually online.

Re: Internet Connection

I am with Sunrise. I do have internet issues but I think it is caused by other-side servers rather than my connection. Many websites are more difficult to open and slower but not all. Also data-intensive things like zoom conferences work without a problem.

Re: Internet Connection

No issues as such, but some providers, such as Netflix, Prime and some of the more popular websites, are having such huge demands that their own servers cannot cope, and so they are reducing the quality, and in some instances in order to eliminate the chance of a total collapse due to the load, are restricting the output altogether. I don't have the technical terms for this but I hope you can work out what i mean.

Re: Internet Connection

UPC here since a few months, and it's as unstable as trump. Customer service is useless (have you reset the modem? YES! EVERY DAY!) Can't wait for salt to come to my area so that I can swap back.

Re: Internet Connection

Swisscom had a major outage 16.03.20 due to the corona situation, as they claim, an excuse when in reality due to their crappy net respectively missing backup equipment. Since then, minor outages seem to happen every day, as one can see in https://allestörungen.ch/stoerung/swisscom/ . In contrast to the other providers which don't seem to have nearly as much similar problems.

Really appalling to see how many foreigners here still subscribe at that most expensive provider Swisscom, which is not nearly as good as it constantly claims to be. There are several other provider offering the same stuff and quality more or less, for a essential lower price.
