Switzerland has a nation-wide, competitive, reliable, efficient and sustainable communications infrastructure

The dynamics of the market-driven expansion of communications networks will be maintained through the provision of resources such as frequencies and the further development of regulatory instruments. In addition, the universal service provides a basic offering of communication services for all sectors of the population. Switzerland is expanding its communications network infrastructure in order to maintain its leading position compared to other countries. To ensure this, the Confederation is providing a framework to attract investment. With the development of innovative solutions and standardisation, the security of communications infrastructures will also be guaranteed in the future. The design of the mobile radio network will also take into account sustainability aspects and environmental compatibility. Switzerland also exploits the economic and social potential of the internet domain name system (“.ch” and “.swiss”), which is used for the benefit of Switzerland and its international positioning and in the virtual domain.
