Exhibit 1 – Overview of digital media convergence

Switzerland’s excellent broadband and digital TV infrastructure supports one of Europe’s more developed markets for convergent media. Many areas of the country have switched from analogue to digital TV transmission, paving the way for digital dividend spectrum to be used for other services including mobile TV and mobile broadband. Swisscom has ramped up its fibre rollout plans, aiming to provide fibre to 1.1 million homes, or a third of the population, by 2015. Complementary cable networks are dominated by UPC Switzerland, which has upgraded much of its infrastructure to provide 100Mb/s services. Together, these networks enable a growing number of consumers to access bundled services. This report presents an analysis of Switzerland’s digital and terrestrial TV markets, as well as an overview of developments in digital media services.
