Digital Switzerland Strategy will fuel internet adoption

One of the key goals is the provision of high-speed broadband across all municipalities. The strategy also aims to create secure cyberspace through capacity-building programs to implement global regulations. This will increase customer confidence.
Declining mobile revenues are set to recover
There was a fall in mobile telecom revenue during 2015-2016. However, it will regain momentum as mobile service revenue is expected to grow from US$6,269.9 million in 2016 to US$6,658.8 million in 2021 at a CAGR of 1.2%. With mobile subscription growth largely unchanged, the upturn will be a result of an increase in ARPS, driven by data usage and voice MOU.
High termination rates will enhance overheads
European Union (EU) regulations do not apply to operators in Switzerland; as such, operators in the EU have increased termination rates for voice traffic originating in Switzerland, forcing Swiss operators to pay higher charges. Although negotiations for a resolution are ongoing, these charges may have a material effect on the industry if negotiations fail or a court rules in favor of the EU operators.
