Sunrise is expanding its FTTH partnership with EWZ, the City of Zurich's electricity company, and will take over the operation of 30,000 minimum fibre optic connections on ewz.zurinet by 2025. Under the new framework agreement, Sunrise is making an advance investment in the EWZ infrastructure (Layer 1) and will receive a long-term, irrevocable right of use (IRU) for ewz.zurinet. With this expanded partnership, Sunrise said it seeks to secure long-term independence from other infrastructures and operate top-speed, future-oriented fibre optic connections.
