Sunrise We: Now with all the advantages of Sunrise and UPC

07.10.2021 / 09:15

  • Starting October 11, 2021: For the first time, Sunrise UPC is combining all the advantages of the merger in the Sunrise We offer: bigger network, new TV, better combos.
  • Bigger network: Sunrise UPC offers the best broadband network in Switzerland, with the fastest and most reliable 5G mobile network (connect issue 1/2021) and also with the fiber optic and cable network, as shown by the most recent Broadband Benchmark 2021 by PC Magazin and PCgo. With its fiber hybrid network including 5G, Sunrise UPC offers giga speeds to over 90% of households. 
  • New TV: The new Sunrise TV offers superb personalized entertainment. The environmentally friendly, award-winning TV Box (IPTV) is complemented by the new Sunrise UPC TV App, which is based on the established platform from UPC.
  • Better combos: Combine Sunrise We Mobile and We Home and save CHF 25.-/month long term. The We Combos offer an all-round carefree package for the entire household. Now with free We Benefit Sunrise surf protect - for safe surfing both at home and on the go. Free Family Roaming within Europe and the USA remains in effect. Kids can now communicate with family members without limits and with no additional charges thanks to We Mobile start young - which comes with a 50% discount (CHF 10.- instead of CHF 20.-/month) for life.
  • Launch promotions: New customers will receive a discount of around 40% on the We Combo offers. Existing customers benefit even more when purchasing additional We Home or We Mobile subscriptions - enjoying extra savings of up to CHF 10.- more per month.

'We are continuing to move quickly to offer customers even more advantages from the merger. With the expanded Sunrise We portfolio, Sunrise customers are now benefitting for the first time from our combined Sunrise UPC network, the TV platform and more attractive mobile and landline bundles - both for private and business customers. This is strengthening our position as the leading convergence provider in Switzerland', says a delighted André Krause, CEO of Sunrise UPC.

Bigger network: Giga speeds for over 90% of households

Sunrise UPC offers the fastest network and is the leading giga speed provider in Switzerland. Thanks to its hybrid network, consisting of fiber optics, a cable network and a 5G mobile network, Sunrise UPC is able to offer Sunrise We with giga speeds to over 90% of households. None of its competitors can match this, and comparative tests show that Sunrise UPC has Switzerland's fastest and most reliable 5G network as well as the fastest fiber optic and cable network. This makes the Sunrise UPC fiber hybrid network the leader in Switzerland.

The most recent Broadband Benchmark 2021 by PC Magazin and PCgo also comes to the conclusion that Sunrise UPC offers the best Internet in Switzerland. In a quest to identify the best overall user experience, more than 7.9 million measurement values were evaluated, and Sunrise UPC as the test winner outshone the competition. PC Magazin noted in the report: 'With this merger, a strong network operator emerged that raised expectations with its blend of the UPC broadband cable infrastructure and the Sunrise fiber optic network. Sunrise UPC as the favorite fully satisfied these expectations as the overall winner in Switzerland in our fixed network comparison.' Full details can be found in the PC Magazin.

While UPC Mobile customers have already been using the Sunrise mobile network since last spring, Sunrise customers will also start benefitting from the UPC fiber optic cable network as part of the extended Sunrise We offer as of October 11. Anyone who now purchases a We Home subscription or a We Combo, for example, will always automatically receive the best broadband connection available locally for their respective offer, as well as all services from a single source. This offer is particularly attractive for both households and small businesses.

New TV: Sunrise TV is setting the benchmark

Sunrise UPC is also setting standards when it comes to entertainment. The new Sunrise TV is based on the UPC TV platform, one of the most modern solutions in Europe. The new Sunrise TV offers a redesigned user interface that UPC customers will also benefit from. The option to set up multiple user profiles means every person in the household can access their personal favorite programs and recommendations at the touch of a button. With integrated streaming apps such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Sky Show, Sky Sports and many more, as well as our own video-on-demand store for renting the latest blockbuster movies, there is a wealth of entertainment at your fingertips: Over 275 channels, 7 days of Replay, 2,000 hours of recordings and MySports One are all included in the basic package.

The new Sunrise TV Box does what you say and can be controlled remotely via voice commands. In addition, the new Sunrise TV Box will wow users with its simple plug & play installation, its compact, award-winning design (reddot winner 2021) and its eco-friendliness (35% recycled plastic, no plastic packaging, power supply via TV-USB connection, power consumption of less than 5 watts, Sustainability Award 2020 winner).

The Sunrise UPC TV App rounds off the company's superb TV offering. Since identical channel lists, recordings, watchlists and the ability to seamlessly view programs on any device (Continued Watching) are available for each user profile, the Sunrise UPC TV App ensures the same level of convenience even when you're on the go. Using the app, it's possible to watch all your favorite movies and series via Apple TV, various smart TVs, smartphones, tablets and laptops - and now from anywhere in Europe as well. All details can be found here.

Better combos: combine even more, benefit even more

With Sunrise We, those who combine We Mobile and We Home will benefit most - enjoying a lifetime discount of CHF 25.- per month on the combinations compared to the individual prices (promotions excluded).

A new and free We Benefit is the online all-round protection option Sunrise surf protect - for safe surfing at home and on the go. Whether it's laptops, smartphones, smart TVs, game consoles or home security systems - all devices that are connected to the Internet via the Sunrise network are reliably protected.

The popular We Benefit of free family roaming in Europe and the USA remains in effect. A new addition is the Sunrise We Mobile start young subscription, now available with a lifetime discount of 50%, meaning it costs CHF 10.- instead of CHF 20.-/month. With this subscription, kids can communicate with family members without limits and with no additional charges. Each additional We Mobile subscription for adults will still cost CHF 40.-.

The Sunrise We offers are available individually - and now as part of attractive We Combos as well. For households, we recommend the Sunrise We Combo Top+ (CHF 155.-/month) or We Combo Pro+ (CHF 130.-/month), including Sunrise We TV, Internet speeds of up to 10 Gbit/s or 500 Mbit/s, We Phone M, and We Mobile L or We Mobile M.

With the We Combos, small businesses will receive everything from a single source - meaning their needs are optimally covered. The Sunrise UPC expert teams will analyze a small business's needs and advise them accordingly.

Promotional offer until 21.11.21: Both new and existing customers can benefit

By expanding the Sunrise We offer, Sunrise UPC is offering extremely attractive promotional prices. The We Combo offers are favorable for new customers. They will receive a promotional discount of around 40%. For example, they can get the We Combo Pro for CHF 68.- (24 months, then CHF 115.-), the We Combo Pro+ for CHF 78.- (24 months, then CHF 130.-), the We Combo Top for CHF 84.- (24 months, then CHF 145.-) and the We Combo Top+ for CHF 88.- (24 months, then CHF 155.-). Business customers can also benefit from these promotions. 

But existing customers will benefit the most. If a Mobile customer takes out a We Home subscription or an Internet customer takes out a We Mobile subscription, they will receive an extra discount of up to CHF 10.- per month compared to prices for new customers.
