Swisscom to roll out 5G in 60 towns by end of year

Friday 8 February 2019 | 10:59 CET | News
Swisscom successfully gained frequencies in the 5G auction, for which it shall pay CHF 196 million. The bid of CHF 196 million is viewed as exceptional and was not included in the capital investments of around CHF 2.3 billion projected for 2019. In all other respects, the financial outlook and the intended dividend of CHF 22 per share remain unchanged for 2019.
