Swisscom's roaming data volumes have virtually doubled year-on-year, partly due to further price reductions and additional inclusive services offered with the newly launched inOne mobile subscriptions.

The new inOne mobile go has put an end to roaming in Europe for Swisscom customers: they can make calls, send text messages and surf on an unlimited basis in 39 countries in Europe. But even those customers who don’t yet have a subscription for Europe that includes roaming have been able to surf much more cheaply since 1 April. Over the last four years, roaming data volumes have increased thirteenfold, said the Operator in its financial results for the first half of 2019.

Urs Schaeppi, CEO, Swisscom
We have achieved some major successes in the market: after just over four months, around 570,000 customers have already signed up for our new inOne mobile offering. The new customers can enjoy unlimited calls, text messages and data with no roaming charges in 39 countries in Europe. Lower prices and additional inclusive services have virtually doubled roaming data volume over the prior year.
