Salt/sunrise coverage in ZH/Schwyz/Zug

I am currently on Sunrise (mobile) and consider switching to Lidl which is on Salt infrastructure.

The deal is: https://www.lidl-connect.ch/de/smart-abo

We are currently in ZH with possibility of switching to Zug/Schwyz, possibly more distant locations.

I have been happy with Sunrise coverage. Read some negative experiences with Salt on EF (albeit more regarding customer service).

Anybody unhappy with Salt mobile internet connection?

Re: Salt/sunrise coverage in ZH/Schwyz/Zug

Can't compare the current status, but when I switched most of my mobile devices from Sunrise to Salt 3 years ago, the Salt coverage was at least the same, the quality of mobile internet was much better - back than I needed stable video confs with the West Coast partners and Sunrise failed to deliver it even with 4G+ and 5G indication on, but Salt worked almost flawlessly even with "just" 4G.

For business I'm entangled with Swisscom, and it has a better coverage in some remote areas, but inside Zurich in many locations internet from Salt is still faster and has better latency.

Re: Salt/sunrise coverage in ZH/Schwyz/Zug

Its all about coverage in your primary locations and whether you have a radio mast nearby. For me Swisscom is the benchmark and I would see universally good coverage whether in the city (Basel, Zurich or Zug) or up a mountain or in the middle of a forest. Sunrise is the network I am on now and its pretty bad in Zug city (where I live) and the part of Baar where I take the kids to play football. However if I am in BL then its fine, so its a mixed bag.
