Looking to buy a Swisscom subscription, but 24 m contract curation?

I recently moved back to Switzerland, and since my old sim card from Sunrise wasn't deactivated, it was fairly easy for me to get a contract for 40 CHF a month with Sunrise.

But honestly, the coverage is not the standard I expected. On the other hand, my company phone with Swisscom has very good reception almost everywhere.

Wingo for the moment is not something I would be interested in, since I would like to keep the option to use my Cellular apple watch.

But 24 months contract, is that really normal? Where I come from, a 6 months contract is by law the longest they are allowed to do, and with a 24 months contract I am afraid to get stuck in an expensive deal for too long. Especially since I can get the deal for 35 CHF/month for 12 months, but after that it will go up to 70 CHF/month, which I think is really expensive

24 months is pretty normal, especially for such deals.
Why not go for Wingo. We have recently moved 2 subscriptions from Sunrise to Wingo and are pretty happy with it.

I thought about wingo, but since they don't support the apple watch, it's not ideal at this point, unfortunately. Another issue is that you need your permit to buy the contract, and because of general delays in BL and BS migrationsamt, I will have to wait 8 more weeks to get my permit - if I am lucky

Just get MBudget contract, no minimum contract length or 12 months if they have an offer. Cheaper and uses the Swisscom network.

Mucho Mobile another good option, they are fairly new but also use Swisscom Network.

Re: Looking to buy a Swisscom subscription, but 24 m contract curation?

Hi,


Lycamobile with a Swiss M plan, on the Swisscom network.


- Flat Data/Voice/SMS in Switzerland (capped after 10GB)
- Flat voice to Europe
- 1000 minutes in Europe
- 1GB in Europe


For 19CHF a month, a pretty good deal.


The only thing is you can't share your connection.


I'm a faithful user since 10+ years, never a problem.
