Broadband penetration in OECD countries
(per 100 inhabitants, June 2019)

OECD Broadband 2Q2019

Switzerland has a high-performance broadband infrastructure. The economy as a whole benefits from competition between different infrastructures and services as it gives consumers a wider range of products and services to choose from.

At the end of June 2019 more than 46.1% of the Swiss population had a broadband Internet connection. Switzerland therefore consolidated its top-ranking position in an OECD-wide comparison. It remains ahead of France (43.7%), Denmark (43.4%) and the Netherlands (43.1%). The average for the OECD countries is 31.4%, while that of EU countries is 34.7% (July 2018).
