Switching to Sunrise from Swisscom - 5G

Has anyone switched from Swisscom to Sunrise? just looking at their 5G router. Let's see how it goes but now thinking of switching the fibre off to the house at least for the internet or switching to Sunrise full stop. Any personal experiences, good or bad?

Re: Switching to Sunrise from Swisscom - 5G

technically it's not a switch, you have to move from one provider to another and from one technology to another.
What you want to know is if 5G going to be good where you are.
I have the same question (for myself .

I will get the box tomorrow, I am in a 5G area so let me see what speed we get. I will let you know, CHF39Franks per month for 24 months on offer now.

I know this is unlikely but the big question is exactly that - what speed. The heatmap online says im 4g and a bit 5g. my current phone switches between 3g and 4g weak when outside. There isnt any facility where sunrise let you rent one for a week or anything to test your speed at home ? I'd switch no problem but i dont want to sign for 2 years then find my speed is to slow.

Re: Switching to Sunrise from Swisscom - 5G

I have contacted Sunrise and the answer was always the same ; no test possible but if it's not working (has to be confirmed by a tech) they will terminate your contract.
Of course not working is not the same as slow connection and there is no info regarding the cost.

anyway, it looks like people with a 5G device can try with prepaid (20F/7Days).

I don't see info regarding the sim card.

I don't see any valid point for a switch from fiber to 5G. Speed, connection stability, reliability, latency, all will be very likely worser with 5G. Unless you're a just occasional internet user where it doesn't matter that much.

The best part of 5G surely are the mouthy announcements by those providing it, the real application runs far behind that, at least ATM.

Another concern is the number of conenctions. Sunrise mentions 20. With a family of 4 each having a phone, maybe a laptop, one or two smart tvs, some wifi speakers, a hue hub, a harmony remote, a NAS in the basement, 20 connections are used up very quickly.

What connections are you talking about? Wifi? wired? 5G?
nothing will stop you to have more if you have a router and I don't think your speakers or your remote connect to the 5G.

Re: Switching to Sunrise from Swisscom - 5G

So if you add a simple router for the speakers and the remote will solve the problem.

Other possibilité is having a good rooter for everything and only one connection to the 5G hub.

True. I still don't understand the apparently artificial limitation by HTC (or sunrise)

this is a small device design to run on battery with a small processor, not something design to run a factory.

Re: Switching to Sunrise from Swisscom - 5G

is it worth it to buy a new 5g mobile phone now or better to wait a while?

Surely that depends entirely on your needs and why you want 5G.

The 5G standard is stable, so no worry there.

Cost of 5G phones will inevitably come down, so waiting would be cheaper.

Coverage will increase, so you'll get more value from your subscription if you wait.

Do you do any gaming? I would say the ping for 5G will be at least double the ping on fiber. I get 5-6ms on fiber and used to get 20-30 by a 4G router but I would think 5G ping will be similar. I used to get very noticable variations in speed too on their 4G box - 100Mbit very early AM vs 20-30Mbit at lunchtime/peak periods.

I had a rebadged Sunrise 4G box previously via Yallo and I have Sunrise fiber now so a direct comparison with the same underlying ISP network.

Personally, I would never suggest changing from a dedicated fiber line to a purely 4G/5G signal as bad weather (eg heavy snow) can also significantly impact the signal and you get too much variation in speeds.

I can however recommend Sunrise's 10Gbit fibre deal which I got for 49.99 CHF a month which is 10 CHF more a month than I paid for the 4G box and light years better in performance.
