fibre suisse proposed as a means of sustaining network competition 10 • Cable network operators, Swisscom and now also electricity companies want to invest more in fibre optic. This is where fibre suisse comes in: FTTH Council Copenhagen, K. Schweren, Swisscom •Every provider wishing to build a new network infrastructure lays one fibre- optic cable containing multiple fibres •The unused optical fibres are offered to interested network operators for sale or exchange •Network providers with their own ducts cooperate in laying fibre-optic cabling •Network operators offer to lease individual naked optical fibres, as well as comprehensive transmission services to interested service providers who do not wish to invest in their own cabling • In this way, fibre suisse promotes competition over technology • The biggest winners in all this are the customers, because thanks to fibre suisse they have a number of network providers to choose from. • As such, variety, innovation and attractive prices are guaranteed.

The Swisscom cooperation model in a nutshell An opportunity to decide on industry structure 14 For customers: • Competition and free choice between several providers and FTTH Council Copenhagen, K. Schweren, Swisscom technologies • One-time renewal of in-house installation • No dependency on one network provider only For Switzerland: • Faster and cheaper construction of fibre • No redundancy in construction of fibre For the network provider • Enables infrastructure-based competition • Lower building costs • Better return on investment
