Swiss providers at a glance

The largest providers on the Swiss market, Sunrise, Swisscom and Salt, offer combined packages for Internet and TV use at different conditions. But even less well-known providers are increasingly bringing cheap Internet and TV subscriptions onto the market. We have taken a closer look at the various offers in our Internet and TV comparison.

Combined Internet and TV subscription: That's what you should look out for when you graduate.

If you want to take out a TV and Internet subscription in a package, you should also take a close look at the other conditions of the subscription in the Internet and TV comparison. What download and upload speeds or MBit per second are included in the tariff? If the rates are symmetrical or the upload rate is significantly lower than the download speed, this can be a problem especially for those who frequently upload or send larger mails, data volumes, videos and similar files. Especially in metropolitan areas, the provider Salt surprises with up to ten times faster upload and download speeds. In addition, attention should be paid to the setup fee for the installation of a router or TV receiver, for example.

Especially the providers Quickline, TeleKing and Wingo charge corresponding one-time fees if you want to activate a TV Internet subscription. Other providers only charge a setup fee under certain conditions. If you want to use Apple TV via Teleboy, for example, you can do so for a one-off payment of CHF 159. If you take out a Sunrise subscription online, you are spared the setup fee, whereas otherwise CHF 69 is due and Swisscom only charges new customers for the initial connection. Other providers, such as or, do not charge a setup fee. Further additional costs, for example for the purchase of receivers and routers, should also be checked in a comprehensive Internet and TV comparison.

Ensure that any periods of notice are observed and that any amounts payable each month are indicated on average. Who makes an Internet Abo comparison, should inform also about the availability and the existing net. Is the subscription suitable for fibre optic networks, such as Swisscom, Sunrise, Teleboy or Wingo, or does one receive via the TV network? The type and number of channels that can be received, replay, video on demand and recording functions as well as the number of devices that can be played vary from tariff to tariff and from provider to provider.

Who would like to book in addition a telephone option in addition or would like to lock a three-way combination subscription, should besides on the kind of the Flatrate pay attention and/or decide whether minute tariffs would be a more favorable alternative.

A subscription can therefore be worthwhile for all those who enjoy watching television frequently and at the same time surf the net regularly.

Often the different providers offer the Internet tariff as a basic tariff. In addition, you can book mobile and fixed line options as well as TV. TV rates are generally between CHF 15 and CHF 20.
