From 1 January 2016, we will double the Internet speed enjoyed by more than half of our Internet customers. The investment costs will be covered by means of increased prices applied to some of our Internet subscriptions.
Data use on our network has increased by 49 percent over the past 12 months. That is why we are doubling the Internet speed for around half of our Internet customers both for data download and data upload. In order to cover the costs of ongoing network expansion, we are increasing the prices of some Internet subscriptions by CHF 4 per month from 1 January 2016.
The customers concerned will be notified by letter of the price increase and the doubling of their Internet speed. Despite the increase, all existing customers will continue to pay less or no more than new customers for their product.
