Sunrise, the wholly owned subsidiary of Liberty Global and the largest private telecommunications company in Switzerland, offers industry-leading mobile, Internet, TV and fixed network services for private and business customers. As a long-term partner of the cable network providers in Dottikon, Dintikon, Boniswil, Mogelsberg and Ebersol, Sunrise has taken over these cable networks run by four cooperatives with retroactive effect from January 01, 2023.
Sunrise takes over Cable Networks
These four takeovers are a result of years of collaboration. As a result, approximately 4,500 connected households will continue to have access to Sunrise products now.
Benjamin Meier, President of Dottikon AGD, says: "The example of the Dottikon AGD Antenna Cooperative highlights the benefits for the parties involved in the sale. Dottikon AGD is convinced that the sale of its hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) cable network to Sunrise is in its customers' best interest. Our aim is to ensure that the communications infrastructure continues to meet the challenges and demands of digitization. Sunrise is perfectly equipped to embrace the digital trends of the future and will also be able to cater for all its customers' future needs."
