so I was right... its the Swisscom analog socket.

I heard they use 4wire but this one has just two of them connected. Do you think I can get anyway all the Swisscom service: dsl, tv etc ?

Thx.

ADSL yes, but for newer digital services, a technician is required to convert it before high speed services can be provisioned.

What this is all about? they just have to change the socket or something else?

The diamond shaped socket is called POTS - Plain Old Telephone Service - which accepts ADSL connection with a suitable microfilter.

Should you require hi-speed services such as that from Bluewin VDSL, rewiring and re-socketing ( to RJ45 ) is required before such services can be provisioned, and it is not cheap ( probably CHF200/- ).

Also, before you have the plug changed be sure to check what technologies are available at your location.

You can check this by entering your landline number in an online tool, for example this one:

Depending on your location you may even be able to get Fibre-to-the-Home:

If it's just a matter of getting the newer plugs, you can purchase one (look at Coop Brico or something similar) and do it yourself. I did that when I moved in 5 years ago and have happily been running ADSL + phone out of it now.

Just a word of caution if you do it yourself, make sure the wires are tightly connected, or even better, use a soldering iron to secure the connections, as this can introduce noise that will interfere with your ADSL line.

Can I restart this thread?

We have new telephone sockets in the house but only on the first (upstairs) floor. On the groundfloor and roofspace, we have these T+T sockets. Can I use them? Is there an adaptor?

There is also a switch in our hall: in the 'up' position it says 'Ein' and 'Encl.' In the down position 'T+T. What is this all about?
