Our analysis

In 2021, Swiss have enjoyed an average download speed of 195 Mb/s, and 120 Mb/s when it comes to the upload speed. Thanks to these broadband performances, Swiss households are among the best-connected ones in Europe.

Please note that data from Sunrise and UPC operators have been merged.

Salt has offered to its subscribers the country’s best Internet performances

Salt led the market in terms of performances on fixed networks with its top spot in download and upload speeds, as well as excellent network latency. Its speeds of several hundred Mbps, almost symmetrical, are the result of a predominantly fiber network but also of a particularly good choice of technology by equipping its network with 10 Gbps compatible equipment.

Other Internet providers are penalized by a marketing segmentation. Indeed, Salt is the only provider who delivers symmetric 10 Gbps broadband. Note also that, if the performance is below the theorical one, it’s because customers don’t have yet the equipment (powerful chipset, ethernet cable, new generation of Wi-Fi…) that allows them to reach 10 Gbps.

Swisscom, a nice second place

Thanks to good speeds and above all good latency, Swisscom obtained a deserved second place in the general ranking, all technologies combined.

Sunrise UPC, in third place

Despite its nice download speed, which is close to 200 Mb/s, the new group fails to keep up with the good progress of Swisscom
