Cablecom introduces 500Mbps broadband

25 Jun 2015

Swiss full-service provider UPC Cablecom has boosted the peak download speed available to residential customers to 500Mbps, although the top speed is reserved for customers signing up to multi-play offerings. Coinciding with the upgrade, the UK-backed operator has unveiled a range of new offerings with higher transfer rates, additional free minutes of calls to Swiss networks, as well as TV options – such as video-on-demand (VoD), replay and over-the-top (OTT) service ‘Horizon Go’ – and access to Wi-Fi hotspots via Cablecom’s Wi-Free service. Of the new packages, two include the new top broadband speed of 500Mbps, namely: ‘Horizon Super Trio’, which includes all of the features listed above as well as cable TV and voice-over-internet protocol (VoIP) for CHF129 (USD138.2) per month (CHF99 for the first two months under the current promotional offer); and ‘Super Horizon Duo’, which bundles broadband and VoIP with VoD, Horizon Go and Wi-Free for CHF119 per month (CHF89 for the first two months under the current promotion).
