Re: Does anyone have recent experience activating their phone line?
ah just thought. The above was for installing an anaogue telephone line only several years ago
If you are needing fibre optic It may take a bit longer than half an hour.
Depends if building equipped already and to which floor. Possiby the building already eqipped if The electrician will have to install the fibre optic up to the floor you live on ifit is not there already and then to your flat where he will also install the new electrial socket for fibre optique.
Once the fibre, then the sockets are installed, they leave a kit with you and you do the final connecting up and activation yourself.
When I had it done here - it was obligatory by Swisscom to install fibre optic for me this year, on my existing analogue line - it took about 21/2 -3 hrs.. but it was not yet installed up to the floor I am on, when I had it done, in February.
It was free to install the fibre optique as I had to start a new contract.
Swisscom had contracted someone to install it in the building which was not equipped for fibre optic before the end of last year.
I would contact Swisscom about whether it would them that would pay for the line. Then you will know if you want to look for one like I suggested above, or simply just necessary to find an electriian locally that they recommend/ approve.
