Lycamobile Mobile Network

Lycamobile relies on the Salt mobile network, which covers over 99% of the Swiss population. This means that Lycamobile customers can enjoy reliable and high-quality network coverage nationwide, including in remote and rural areas. The quality of the Lycamobile network is defined by the power transmitted by Swisscom's mobile antennas and its repeaters and is generally good as long as there is not high data traffic in the area.

Which network does Lycamobile use?

In Switzerland, Lycamobile boasts excellent mobile network coverage thanks to its partnership with the Swiss telecommunications giant, Salt. This allows for excellent reception both in cities and in the mountains. Currently, Lycamobile offers packages connected to both the 4G and 5G networks in over 150 cities in Switzerland at no additional cost.

To check mobile network coverage, you can view the signal in your area using the coverage map provided by internet-offer.ch in collaboration with nPerf.

As with any prepaid offer, topping up (or Credit Top Up) is essential to have enough credit on your Lycamobile account and activate packages or use the SIM on a pay-as-you-go basis. The great thing with Lycamobile is that for every top-up of at least 5 CHF made online through the official website or app, you get special bonuses, including extra recharge credit and free internet data to use. For example, if you top up 20 CHF, you'll get an extra 4 CHF credit and 225 MB of data, and if you were to top up 200 CHF, you'd get 125 CHF as a gift and an additional 6 GB of data.

Additionally, with every Lycamobile top-up, you get the opportunity to call all Lycamobile numbers in Switzerland unlimited and for free, including friends and family.

If you prefer, you can avoid downloading the app to your mobile device and use the My Lyca Mobile section directly on the operator's website. To log in, visit mylyca.lycamobile.ch, enter your Lycamobile phone number, and proceed by clicking the green button. This way, you'll log in to Lycamobile without the need to register an account.

If you intend to stop an option with automatic renewal or a subscription plan, we recommend contacting the customer support number +41 77 900 01 22 directly. Alternatively, you can proceed independently by sending an SMS with the word CANCEL to the number 5309 or by logging into your My Lyca Mobile account and modifying the payment method.

Lycamobile: User Experience and Review

User experiences with Lycamobile are quite mixed. On one hand, Lycamobile reviews praise the low prices and the large amount of data and minutes offered even in the less expensive options. On the other hand, many users report network issues and customer service that doesn't always meet their expectations. Certainly, these are all factors to consider when deciding to purchase a low-cost offer like those provided by this operator.

Another factor in favor of Lycamobile is the cost of the SIM card: Lycamobile SIM cards are actually free; you will only pay for the subscription plans that are activated through periodic top-ups.
