A Study on Switzerland's Telecoms, Mobile & Broadband: 2018 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Switzerland - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Switzerland has a sophisticated telecom sector and enjoys one of the highest broadband penetration rates within the European Union and among the OECD nations.

Its competitive mobile market is served by three network operators and a small number of MVNOs while the broadband market is dominated by Swisscom and UPC Switzerland, though there are a large number of smaller players in the market, many providing services to local communities.

UPC has gained scale in recent years by acquiring a number of its partner networks, while Sunrise in mid-2018 became a full-service provider adding fibre-based broadband and pay-TV services to its existing mobile voice and data offers.

Although not a member of the EU, the country's economic integration has meant that its telecom market deregulation has followed the EU's liberalisation framework, including the recent regulations on international voice roaming.

The country benefits from universal DSL infrastructure and an expansive cable broadband network, with the effective cross-platform competition.

The DSL sector commands about two-thirds of the market by subscribers. UPC Switzerland offers broadband in most cities and towns, and its extension of 500Mb/s services has helped spur Swisscom to intensify its VDSL, G.fast and FttP network rollouts in a bid to remain competitive.

Swisscom's planned infrastructure investment over the coming years has been facilitated by cooperative deals struck with regional utility companies.
