Switzerland has very high-performance high-speed telecommunications infrastructures. The economy as a whole benefits from competition in infrastructures and services, which offers greater choice to consumers.

At the end of June 2018, more than 47.5% of the Swiss population had a broadband internet connection. Switzerland therefore secured its top ranking in an OECD-wide comparison. It is clearly ahead of Denmark (43.4%), France (42.9%) and the Netherlands (42.9%). The average for the OECD countries is 30.7%; that of the EU countries is 34.7% (July 2018).
