Your coverage on the Sunrise mobile broadband network
2G enables trouble-free calling and SMS/MMS messaging. Surfing speed is low, but sufficient for small amounts of data (e.g. e-mails without attachments, etc.). 3G first made mobile Internet possible. Speeds of up to 42 Mbit/s make the online surfing experience a true pleasure. The entire Sunrise mobile network is 3G-enabled.
4G is the current mobile network generation. LTE means "Long Term Evolution," and is the same as 4G. With 4G, more customers can use mobile Internet simultaneously. The 4G mobile network enables surfing at up to 100 Mbit/s. This means extremely rapid loading and quick reaction times for the best surfing experience in a mobile network.
4G+ LTE-A (Long Term Evolution-Advanced) is advanced evolution of LTE. With the existing mobile network infrastructure, many more customers can use mobile Internet at the same time without compromising on data speed. 4G+ LTE-A more than doubles the network capacity compared to LTE by using elevated spectral efficiency. In addition, LTE-A users benefit from further improved ping times, which means pages will load even faster. With 4G+ LTE-A, maximum speeds of up to 375 Mbit/s are possible under optimal conditions. Technically speaking, three carriers are connected to achieve this. Actual speed depends on geographical location, the number of users in the mobile radio cell, and the user's device. At up to 900 Mbit/s (4G+), Sunrise already reaches fiber optic speeds in Switzerland's five largest cities: Geneva, Lausanne, Bern, Basel, and Zürich. A CAT16 handset is required to reach these extremely high speeds.
Coming in at fantastic geographical 4G coverage of more than 95% and population coverage of more than 99.9%, Sunrise offers the best 4G coverage in Switzerland. 4G+ coverage extends to approximately 80% of the Swiss population.
