Re: Sunrise 10Gbit (where available) for 35 CHF/mth permanent

I regularly download large files from usenet via SSL - it constantly maxes out the connection to my laptops Gigabit card at around 105-1088MB/sec on the downloads so for me at least I don't see any major shaping going on compared to say Virgin media in UK who are well known for it especially at peak times. Even if I consistently get Gigabit speeds that's great for the cash.
I would guess there is huge overbooking for customers who took 10Gbit connection. There is no issue at the moment as it is not wide spread yet, plus users usually are using just small portion of the speed. Would be interesting to see what will happen in the future.

Furthermore it would be interesting excursion to see what type and size of the systems they use where all comes into one point to route traffic to public internet. Anyway at my place they say it can be max 1Gbit and I would definitely want to try 10Gbit, although I don't need so much speed

No Sunrise is definitely 10Gbit not 1Gbit as proven by the upload speeds here - i tried a different 2.5Gbit dongle (cant justify the 180 quid for a 10Gbit to Thunderbolt adaptor):

Does anyone know if we can use our own router with Sunrise 10Gbit?

Yes, but you have to connect it to the sunrise modem

Not necessarily. I am not using the big Sunrise modem at all and connect directly to their VLAN using a TP-Link MC220L media converter.

Surely you're then capped at a Gigabit though since thats Gigabit-only hardware? Kinda defeats having the 10 Gbit.

I am pretty sure you can have device which supports 10Gbit

https://www.digitec.ch/en/s1/product...ories-12083690

However, what is the purpose of not using Sunrise's device? Is it bad?

Yeah sorry, I got Sunrise 1Gbit so was mixing things up, but you could find them for 10 as well as mentioned below.

My reason for not using the Sunrise modem is the size of that thing. I would like to have everything where the fuse box is located and where the signal comes into the apartment. With the Sunrise modem I would be unable to.

It's the difference in waiting 30 mins to download a massive (say 25GB) 4k movie vs 3 mins. If you're happy waiting 30 minutes then you don't need any faster.
Start download. Do something else for 30 min, i.e. dinner, clean up, laundry, ironing stuff... Watch the movie.

Well the speeds heavily depend on:

1. Are you using a cable or you'll max out way below that on your wifi card (I have a great one in the Macbook Pro and it still maxes at 770Mbit)
2. I have a 2.5Gbit ethernet dongle in the laptop so i'm bound by that rather the 10Gbit max (a 10Gbit dongle is almost 200 CHF) - many machines only have gigabit LAN cards
3. You have to use the correct 10Gbit ethernet port and a suitable quality cable or you can be capped by the ethernet cable speed as well.

I have whatever modem they sent me a few months ago - looks like a Sagemcom one from the info I have. I also had to download specific drivers for my 2.5GB network dongle which support jumbo frames to get > 1Gbit speeds as well on my Mac.

As my devices are hard-wired into the network as I work in IT.



But looking at my router settings its says Upload/Download 1G so it was something I was wondering.

Ah sorry as someone else who works in IT I wasn't trying to tell you your job but historically people often use wifi and wonder why their speeds are slower.


Weird you only get 1Gbit up/down maybe you only have an older router so could be worth asking if they can upgrade it I guess. Does it have a 10Gbit LAN port on the back as if not clearly its not 10Gbit?

I need to check, I have been with them for about 14 months but renewed my contract back in November. So I am not sure if I was suppose to get another router or they should of upped my speed.
