Cablecom launches 100 Mbit/s internet
Swiss cable operator Cablecom has commenced marketing its planned high speed broadband internet access. Customers in the regions of Zurich, Bern and Winterthur can now surf the net with a data rate of up to 100 Mbit/s, with nationwide coverage planned by the end of 2010.
Three tariffs are available: Fiber Power internet 100 (100 Mbit/s for downloads and 7 Mbit/s for uploads) for 95 francs (€63) per month, Fiber Power internet 50 (50 Mbit/s and 5 Mbit/s) for 85 francs (€56) per month and Fiber Power internet 10+ (10 Mbit/s and 5 Mbit/s) for 59 francs (€39) per month.
“Over the past four years we have invested more than a billion Swiss francs to enable the Fiber Power expansion,” said managing director Eric Tveter in Zurich. “The result is a high quality, future proof network which consists of over 95% of fibre optic lines and can flexibly cater to increasing demand. With Fiber Power we are leaving ADSL way behind us.”
The company announced the 100 Mbit/s upgrade plans a year ago.
