This is an update on the Switzerland telecoms market, covering mobile, fixed broadband, operator initiatives, M&A, and regulation. It includes subscription, revenue, and technology forecasts for mobile and fixed broadband.


  • Switzerland's high-income households are an advantage for its telecoms market as they are willing to pay for the best services – this in turn drives ARPU and revenue for operators. The incumbent, Swisscom, continues to dominate – a concern for new entrants in the fixed and mobile markets.
