FEBRUARY 19, 2010 -- Cablecom expanded its Fiber Power services in Switzerland to include the city of St. Gallen. Fiber Power is the cable MSO's high-speed Internet services that offers download speeds of 100 Mbps.

Cablecom customers can now surf the net as much as five times faster than with the quickest DSL providers, company officials say. Fiber Power is currently available to almost 50 percent of Swiss households with Cablecom connections; most of the remaining households will have access by the end of 2010.

Cablecom is now launching three offers in St. Gallen, which have already been available in Zurich, Berne, and Winterthur since September of 2009:

  • Fiber Power Internet 100 (100 Mbps download/7 Mbps upload for CHF 95)
  • Fiber Power Internet 50 (50 Mbps download/5 Mbps upload for CHF 85)
  • Fiber Power Internet 10+ (10 Mbps download/5 Mbps upload for CHF 59).

Cablecom is realizing the next generation of high-speed broadband by using new technologies (DOCSIS 3.0) and continually extending its own network, company officials say.

“In the past four years we have invested over 1 billion Swiss francs to make the Fiber Power extension possible. The result is a high-quality, future-proof network, 95 percent of which currently consists of optical fibers, that has the flexibility to meet increasing demand,” says Eric Tveter, Cablecom managing director. “Today Cablecom has a network that delivers speeds that other companies could only achieve if they spent years building new networks.”

New customers will receive a new, modified modem when they order the Fiber Power Internet service. This modem can be directly connected to the cabling outlet in the building and/or in the apartment. No extra adaptations on an infrastructural level or additional investments are necessary. Existing high-speed customers who switch to Fiber Power internet will be given the new device.
