It follows a successful cooperation in Basel and French-speaking Switzerland. From mid-September UPC will become the new telecommunications provider for the Emmental/ Luzerner Landschaft region at the same time replacing services provided by rival Quickline to 7,500 customers.
“We have already been working together successfully with UPC as a provider for communication and entertainment in our cable networks in the Basel region and in French-speaking Switzerland for many years. Now we are following suit with our cable network in the Emmental / Luzerner Landschaft region in order to further standardise the product range and optimise customer service,” says Adrian Koessler, a member of EBL’s executive board.
“We are delighted that with the addition of the cable network in the Emmental / Luzerner Landschaft region, from September we will be supplying all EBL networks with Internet, TV, telephony and mobile services,” adds says Christophe Millet, Vice President Partner Networks at UPC. “Customers will be able to go online at speeds of 500 Mbits/s in the future and with the new sports channel, MySports, they can enjoy next to other sports Swiss ice hockey and Bundesliga football.”
Customers have been informed about the change by letter.
