The Federal Council, Switzerland’s executive, has confirmed a decision made by parliament to raise the minimum speed of broadband internet connections in Switzerland.

From 1 January 2020, the minimum download speed specified in Switzerland’s universal service agreement with Swisscom will rise from 3 to 10 megabits per second (Mbits/s) and the minimum upload speed will rise from 0.3 to 1 Mbit/s.

The change aims to boost social and economic activities that are underpinned by the internet.

Swisscom, which owns and manages much of the infrastructure that ultimately determines internet speeds, will be required to make the necessary changes required to deliver these new minimum speeds.

Swisscom, which is 51% owned by the federal government, agreed to offer a universal minimum level of telecommunication services when the sector was liberalised in 1998.
