Today, Switzerland is in a leading position in terms of the ongoing development of communications networks. It is primarily the proactive and innovative enterprises in the telecommunications industry we have to thank for this; they are the beneficiaries of a liberal regulatory environment.

This is the background against which telecommunications providers must make difficult decisions, but also where ComCom must operate.
