In case anyone wants to know what I did recently:

  • Stuck with Salt until 20.11.2023
  • Registered with Galaxus mobile yesterday and already got a confirmation that everything will be ready by 20.11.2023
  • One can terminate the contract with Galaxus mobile by each day within the first month. Afterwards you can terminate by end of each month.
  • If there are good offers by Black Friday (you never know), I will be able to change effective immediately.

Not very ethical, probably, because I like the offer from Galaxus:

  • No fake discount system
  • Very fair price
  • No inflation-linked price increase clause in the contract
  • Sympathic branding

Who knows, maybe I will stay with Galaxus?

Why would they need one, if they can change their prices (and, even worse, their terms and conditions) for much more than the rate inflation at their whim, at any time?

“Galaxus Mobile reserves the right to change the services and/or contractual conditions (including prices, tariffs and fees as well as these GTC) at any time or to discontinue individual services”

At least you receive in this case a special right for termination - when looking at the T&C of other providers you do not have the right for early and penalty-free termination in case of inflation-linked price increase.

Therefore the T&C of Galaxus is - if you are asking me - quite fair.

The only question is, is the service good? Very interested in checking their network for these couple of days.

…only if the prices are “significantly” higher and the disadvantage to the customer is “considerable”.

Galaxus Mobile notifies the customer of changes which are associated with a considerable disadvantage for the customer (e.g. a significantly higher price of the connection, the adjustment of the connection, the discontinuation or significant restriction of a service) in good time in advance. In this case, the customer may terminate the contract at the time the change takes effect without incurring any costs.

This is Switzerland - they would argue that a price increase in line with inflation is not significant.

That said, the point is moot, since you can cancel each month anyway, on their current (and older, I believe) price plans. Just pointing out that the great, customer-friendly or “fair” thing in their case is, in my opinion, that they don’t have minimum contract terms and allow you to cancel any time - rather than their T&C.

Please, let us know… I’m tempted as well.

On the note of Galaxus Digitec - I asked if they offer any subscription with unlimited data in EU etc early in August after seeing this thread.

Reply below:

Aktuell haben wir leider noch kein Abo, welches mehr Datenvolumen im Ausland enthält. Es wird aber gegen Ende dieses Jahres ein weiteres Abo dazu kommen, welches genau diese Bedürfnisse abdecken sollte.

So they might offer a data flat outside of Switzerland by the end of the year.

Meaning that you can change plan to europe for one month and then go back to swiss?

Only for people with existing numbers at swype as far as I understood. If you get a new number the duration has to be 60 days minimum (plus you have to pay activation fees).

I understand that you cannot cancel you contract until 60 days. But you can change your plan every month.

So much for „You only pay for what you see“. :roll_eyes:

That could be possible although it’s not exactly stated. You for sure need to have one of the three main tarifs active for 60 days upon first activating a new number. Afterwards the duration is 30 days.

“If one of the main tariffs is deactivated during the minimum term, the tariff remains activated until the end of 60 days and is charged accordingly.”

The roaming option for CHF 3 per day is now automatically renewed, which is quite nice, imo.

TalkTalk: Flash Deal: Unlimited (calls, texts, internet) in Switzerland for 12.95 CHF/month.
