Tuesday 20 September 2011 | 09:40 CET | News
Swisscom intends to reduce its prices for mobile phone usage abroad every year up until 2014. The minute fee for calling in Europe will be decreased by CHF 0.05 per year. The decrease for this year starts with postpaid customers per 1 October and the rest will follow. The next decrease is planned for 1 July 2012 to CHF 0.75 per minute for standard tariffs as well as World Option flex. From 2012, prepaid customers abroad will also be able to communicate more cheaply by mobile phone and the operator will also lower mobile data roaming fees during the coming years.
