With the Comparis Internet comparison tool, you can quickly and easily compare the latest Internet deals – including combined packages – from Swiss Internet providers. It provides a clear overview of rates, speeds, plan types and the latest special offers.
The cost of an Internet plan for your home depends on the speed and the provider. An Internet plan with a speed of 50 Mbps costs between 35 and 50 francs per month.
You will also often have to pay a one-time activation fee. Most providers supply the modem router, or “Internet box”, free of charge.
Your provider will give you a modem router that connects to the Internet and your home WiFi.
A combined package may be worth considering, as many providers offer discounts. You then also have all your service information in one place, without having to gather it from different providers. But be careful: some combined packages have a slower speed, fewer TV channels or no international calls in the call plan, for example. So don't forget to compare what these bundles actually include.
The main difference between the Internet plans is the speed. As a rule, the more expensive the plan, the faster the Internet speed. However, it is not always easy to compare them because providers often include TV and landline in their deals.
There are also differences in contract length. Some providers tie you in for 12 months, while others let you give one month's notice. In addition, you can now find deals based on mobile data (e.g. 4G), whereby the Internet is provided not via cable but via the mobile network. Such deals tend to be cheaper but the connection less stable.
This depends on what is most important to you. Your choice of provider will differ according to whether your priority is price, maximum speed or customer service. The independent annual test by the Swiss Institute for Quality Tests (SIQT) (in German and French only) provides useful guidance when making your decision. This Institute analyses the Internet providers in terms of criteria such as price, product range, transparency and customer service.
DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) is a family of technologies used to transmit data, and includes ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line). ADSL uses a traditional telephone line. As the name suggests, ADSL has different upload and download speeds. The speed depends on the distance between your home and the local telephone exchange.
A broadband Internet connection provides high-speed Internet access. It can be based on DSL or fibre technology.
At fast.com, you can do a speed test to find out how fast your Internet is. A speed test tells you what your current download and upload speeds are in Mbps. The download speed is important for people who stream series or films over the Internet. It will also show you the ping value. This figure indicates the time difference between the sending and receiving of a data packet. The smaller this value the better.

If you want your Internet plan to include TV, it's worth comparing combined Internet and TV packages. These combined packages are often not much more expensive than an Internet-only plan.
If you want more variety, you could also consider a streaming subscription. Comparis answers the most frequently asked questions about streaming in its overview of streaming services. You can find detailed information about individual streaming services in our magazine articles on Netflix and Disney+.
The US streaming service Netflix offers its customers in Switzerland a flat rate for films and series, which they can watch on their television, computer or mobile device. Find out all you need to know about services, subscriptions and prices here.More
