Swisscom upgraded the existing inOne multi-device mobile subscription to cost-effectively include IoT devices to the same SIM card.
Swisscom's multi-device option has been greatly simplified and is significantly cheaper because the service now differentiates between the type of connected device.
A tracker or a sensor (such as a temperature probe or a security sensor) requires no more than 0.4 Mbit/s speed and therefore costs only CHF 3 per month.
Smart watches and other wearables need 1 Mbit/s and cost CHF 5 per month. Tablets and additional smartphones get the top speed included in the package and cost CHF 10 per month as before.
With inOne mobile L, customers get 2 more maximum bandwidth connections for their additional devices, while inOne mobile XL subscribers now have 3. These are included at no extra cost as part of the subscription.
Swisscom is also breaking new ground when it comes to SIM card activation: the SIM card can either be inserted manually or stored as an eSIM in the online Customer Center.
The inclusive roaming allowance is also being extended: on top of carefree surfing, texting and calls throughout Europe, inOne mobile M, L and XL customers now have twice as much data thanbefore, amounting to 6,24 or 48 GB per year respectively. The inOne mobile S roaming allowance has been increased to 3 GB (+50%). Furthermore, inOne mobile XL customers now have a premium services package included in their subscription at no extra cost.
Swisscom also plans to roll out the “LTE Cat M1” and “LTE Cat NB” standards in the second half of the year.
