Switzerland Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Digital Media Statistics and Analyses 2017 - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Switzerland - Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Digital Media - Statistics and Analyses" report to their offering.

This report provides a comprehensive overview of trends and developments in Switzerland's telecommunications market. The report analyses the mobile, internet, broadband, digital TV and converging media sectors.

The mobile market has undergone a number of changes in recent years, with the operator Salt (formerly Orange Switzerland) having been acquired by NJJ Capital in February 2015, and with Sunrise having been acquired by a private equity firm, CVC Capital Partners. Following an IPO in February 2016 Sunrise raised CHF2.274 billion. Shortly afterwards a 23.8% stake in Sunrise was sold to the German mobile services provider freenet. The market has also benefited from the entry of UPC, which provides mobile voice and data services as an MVNO. As a full-service provider of quad-play bundles UPC can compete more effectively with Sunrise and Swisscom.
