How to Choose a Fixed Network Subscription in Switzerland?

When comparing fixed network subscriptions, it's essential to consider how you intend to use the home landline to find the most economical offer. 

 

Here are the criteria for choosing a fixed telephony subscription:

  • Incoming or Outgoing Calls:  If you need a fixed network subscription just to remain reachable at home, it might make sense to opt for a subscription without outgoing calls. Many such plans are available with a monthly price as low as 0.00 CHF.

  • Included Minutes in the Plan: The primary reason for getting a fixed network subscription is to make calls from your home phone. If you make many calls, you can choose a fixed telephony subscription with unlimited calls to fixed and/or mobile numbers; otherwise, per-minute rates might be more cost-effective.

  • Included Landline Phone: If you already have a landline phone, this might not be a consideration. However, if it's your first activation, it could be useful to consider subscriptions that offer a device rental for free, saving you the cost of purchasing.

  • Fixed Network Calls to Abroad: If you plan to use the fixed telephony subscription to call international numbers, remember to check the possibility of making these calls and assess the convenience of purchasing a subscription with included calls to foreign landlines.

  • Subscription Constraints: Not all fixed telephony offers are compatible with your internet connection. If you already have an active internet line, consider that the fixed telephony subscription from other operators might not be activated. Also, always consider the contractual constraints and contract cancellation terms.

  • Activation Cost: Most fixed network subscriptions offer free activation for contracts made online, but there might be one-time costs to consider in your choice.

 

Now that you're informed about activating a fixed network subscription, you can proceed to compare subscriptions and find the best offer for you.

Fixed Network Subscription in Switzerland: How Fixed Telephony Subscriptions Work on the Internet

Fixed telephony subscriptions in Switzerland have evolved over time, introducing technologies that have improved the quality of audio signals during landline calls. Currently, almost all subscriptions are offered with VoIP technology. With this technology, you can use your home internet connection to talk on the landline with HD-quality signals without field interference or background noise.

 

Here are some features currently offered by some operators with the best fixed telephony subscriptions.

Fixed Phone App: Use Your Smartphone as a Cordless Phone

Almost all phone operators provide a VoIP app to manage your landline from your smartphone. In the app, you can view incurred costs and manage incoming calls. In this case, you can use your mobile as a real landline phone even when you're away from home or even abroad. In this scenario, it's a true call forwarding, and different costs may apply depending on the subscription.

Voicemail: Never Miss a Call

Another advantage is online voicemail. With a VoIP subscription, you can set up voicemail by defining the hours or days to activate it and retrieve messages from those who called directly online.

Anti-Spam Filter: Protection Against Unwanted Calls

One of the advantages of using a VoIP subscription is that it can leverage software distributed via the internet for various purposes. One of the best advantages is call filtering for unwanted advertising calls. With Callfilter technology, you can protect yourself by defining rules, making sure the call doesn't even ring. Another interesting integration is displaying the name of the person calling if their number is in the local.ch online address book.
