UPC at a glance

Founded in 1994, UPC has been part of UPC Sunrise GmbH since 2020 and uses Sunrise's fast and well-developed 4G network for its cell phone contracts. Currently, UPC customers do not have access to the 5G network.

UPC is the largest cable network operator in Switzerland with around 2 million customers.

UPC Network Coverage

UPC Network Coverage

UPC has been part of UPC Sunrise GmbH since 2020 and uses Sunrise's fast and well-developed 4G network for its cell phone contracts. According to connect's quality benchmark test, the Sunrise network has been among the best in the world for years. 

UPC 4G &4G+ network

UPC uses the Sunrise network, with the 4G network covering over 96% of the Swiss territory, reaching 99.9% of the Swiss population. The 4G+ network has a coverage of 85%.

UPC 5G network

High-performance fiber optic cable network

UPC serves over two million households with its superfast fiber optic network. They enable nationwide Internet in urban and rural areas at a speed of 1 Gbit/s. The fast Internet is guaranteed, even with intensive use, by the fact that Internet, digital television and telephony are transmitted separately. This means they do not interfere with each other.

Alao takes care of the cancellation stress-free for you

 

Do you want to cancel your UPC contract or change your UPC subscription? Over time, it may make sense to cancel your tariff in order to access a better offer. In the following, you will find out what you should consider when canceling your contract.

This is what you must bear in mind when terminating your contract with UPC

Before you cancel your UPC subscription, you should take a close look at your contract. Among other things, the contract specifies the cancellation period and minimum contract term. The notice period describes the period between the submitted notice and the termination of the contract with the provider.

The minimum contract term, on the other hand, is the period during which the contract is effective and legally binding. The contractual relationship cannot be terminated prematurely within this period. If you wish to withdraw from the contract before the expiry of the agreed notice period, you will pay the outstanding installments up to the minimum contract period. UPC's cell phone subscriptions have a minimum contract period of 12 or 24 months. They can be terminated at the end of the term by phone or via live chat, subject to the two-month notice period.

This is what you should do when you change your subscription

If you want to keep the phone number, you should register it with the new provider in good time. You will receive the form for transferring the number from the new provider. Also, make sure that you cancel your UPC subscription only when you switch to a new subscription. If the subscription is cancelled first and the change is made later, your phone number will be lost and cannot be reactivated. The easiest way is to order a new subscription. The new provider will then take care of the cancellation and the transfer of the mobile number. 

Alternative: Pause UPC subscription

Are you planning a longer stay abroad? Alternatively, you can pause your mobile subscription for a while online via My UPC. You can take such a subscription break for 2 to 5 months per year. Inform UPC at the earliest 60 days and at the latest 1 day before the desired start of the break. To do this, you can simply specify in your My UPC account which subscriptions you want to pause and for how long. You will then receive a confirmation by e-mail and do not need to do anything else. The pause starts and ends automatically. Important: The pause also extends the minimum contract period. This means that a 3-month break also postpones the end of the contract by 3 months. There is a fee of CHF 10.- for the pause.

Alternative: Pause UPC subscription

Are you planning a longer stay abroad? Alternatively, you can pause your Home subscription for a while online via My UPC. You can take such a subscription break for 2 to 5 months per year. Inform UPC at the earliest 60 days and at the latest 1 day before the desired start of the break. To do this, you can simply specify in your My UPC account which subscriptions you want to pause and for how long. You will then receive a confirmation by e-mail and do not need to do anything else. The pause starts and ends automatically. Important: The pause also extends the minimum contract period. This means that a 3-month break also postpones the end of the contract by 3 months. There is a fee of CHF 10.- for the pause. 

Transfer UPC Home subscription to a third party instead of cancellation

A form is available on the UPC website for transferring a subscription to another person. The form must be filled out by both you and the new owner and then sent to UPC. Important: The new owner will be charged a transfer fee of CHF 40. 

What happens to your UPC Home subscription when you move house?

A move is to be reported to UPC, if possible, one month in advance. This notification can be made free of charge via your customer account online, or for an administration fee of CHF 35.- by phone or mail. You take the reception devices with you to your new address, where they can then be used as usual. 

Return UPC reception equipment

Modem, router, TV box, etc. are borrowed and must therefore be returned undamaged and in due time to UPC if this is requested in the confirmation of termination. In this confirmation you will also find the details for the return. If you do not do this, you will have to pay a fee of CHF 49. In addition, the following fees apply, depending on the device: 

 

- UPC TV Box: CHF 135.-
