Internet connection /phone options

Hi There,

We have found an apartment in Walchwil and want to set up internet connection. We prefer cable over ADSL but cablecom.ch does not service our area. We don't want to have to set up a phone line as we will just use our cell phones. Any suggestions on how to get internet connection without having to install a phone line?

MsL

If cablecom dont do the area, then someone else will.
Wasserwerke or WWZ = Wasserwerke Zug
At the Metalli shopping, next to Migros, there is the visitor center. They may cover your area.

Try this http://www.swisscable.ch/index.php3?lan=E to see her does your area.

You have a cable TV company in Walchwil:

Check with them if the apartment / building is connected.

Re: Internet connection /phone options

Hi everyone!

Been reading many posts and still need some questions answered... hope yo can help...

I am moving to Witikon, Zurich, I know the flat before had broad band connection, and wanted to know which ASDL ISP provider would be able to set up in Witikon. Not interested in Cable.

Perhaps someone can refer me?


Thanks so much

Because all ADSL providers use Swisscom copper wires, and the majority simply resell Swisscom ADSL, you can use almost any ADSL provider in the country.
There are many to choose from. As a starter:
