I see that we don’t have a 2023 edition of this thread. Time to open it, then.
Digitec Connect is now called Galaxus Mobile and the conditions have changed, I believe, for the better. In a nutshell: 5G is now included as standard, data is unlimited as standard, and the “friends & family” option that previously added more data to the subscription now reduces the monthly price.
The 10GB data roaming package is only valid for 1m unfortunately - otherwise it would have been a great deal.
I like the changes in general for my usage. One main advantage is the friends&family discount which helps getting the price down to CHF 15 (10 for the basic offer). My “family” still has some slots - feel free to send me a PN if you would like to join.
Data shared in friends & family according their FAQ:
What information is shared within a Family?
Similarly to a WhatsApp group, the only thing that’s shared in a Family are the first names and phone numbers of the Family members. As well as the data consumed by each member.
Personal call logs are neither visible to other Family members nor to the account holder.
Speed (up/download) wise maybe not but logically thinking if Swisscom has the most antennas and the most mobile network frequencies (in the best frequency band) they should on paper already offer the best service.
I wouldn’t call it far superior either but IMHO noone beats Swisscom on reception.
If my real-world experience was an indication, Salt may have the best 4G/5G coverage for mobile internet in Switzerland (actually, slightly beyond its borders, too). I certainly wouldn’t generalise that though.
Agreed. All three networks are well-established. If you use your mobile phone as your main Internet connection, like I do, then it is worth testing out which network better covers your home. Other than that, I wouldn’t personally consider the network a major criteria for choosing a plan in Switzerland.
