upc raises the cost of the cable connection once again

Only one year after the last price increase of CHF 4.-, upc will increase again the cost of the cable connection by 8% from January 2017. It will cost CHF 36.90/month – compared to the current CHF 33.95/month.

You can use your extraordinary termination right to terminate your contract with upc (for all fixnet, internet and TV upc products except the new «Connect&Play» products launched on 28.09.2016) according to upc’s GTCs: terminate your upc products and cable connection by latest December 31st and change to Sunrise Home.

Don't pay for something you don't need

Your cable connection is supplied by your cable provider and it costs you about CHF 400.– a year. With upc Cablecom, for example, you pay CHF 33.95/month (CHF 36.90 from January 2017).

And that’s on top of the fee you pay for the actual product!
Most of the time, customers are not billed for their cable connection fee directly by their cable provider; instead, the fee is either included in the landlord’s utility bill or the all-inclusive rent payment.

This means that often even non-customers are billed – although they don’t receive any service via the connection.

If the landlord has canceled the subscription and thus no longer pays a basic fee to the carrier, it is considered a contract modification that they shall inform the tenant of by way of an official form.
