Switzerland has a sophisticated telecom sector and enjoys one of the highest broadband penetration rates in the OECD. Its competitive mobile market is served by three network operators and a small number of MVNOs while the broadband market is dominated by Swisscom and UPC, though there are a large number of smaller players in the market, many providing services to local communities. UPC has gained scale in recent years by acquiring a number of its partner networks.

Although not a member of the EU, the country's economic integration has meant that its telecom market deregulation has followed the EU's liberalisation framework, including the recent regulations on international voice roaming. This report presents a statistical profile of Switzerland's fixed network. It assesses the regulatory environment, noting the status of local loop unbundling, legislated in early 2007, as well as the provision of broadband as a universal service. It also evaluates the strategies and performance of major service providers Swisscom, UPC and Sunrise, and looks ahead to market developments in coming years.

Key developments:

Swisscom deploys LoRa networks; regulator redefines USO minimum broadband speed at 3Mb/s; Swisscom has USO licence renewed to 2022; report update includes the regulator's market data, telcos' operating and financial data to Q4 2016, recent market developments.

Companies mentioned in this report:

Swisscom, Sunrise, UPC.
