Freedom to reject any compromises

Init7 was first entered in the commercial register on 19 January 2000 and is entirely privately owned. We are not constrained by shareholders’ return targets; instead we can follow our passion for the latest and most sustainable technological developments. Quite incidentally we have become the market leader in Switzerland for providing IPv6 addresses. We are an accredited member of RIPE, the IP organisation for Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia. And with our own backbone (AS13030) we are a global player making an active contribution to the communications technology of the 21st century. At the same time we are still a typical, locally-rooted SME as long as you slightly stretch your interpretation of the word «typical».

The basis of our core areas of expertise

We love and live technology. This binds our team together in its aspiration to play an active part in the latest developments rather than merely following the herd. This is why we have always remained adamant that we will not be dependent on the large network operators in Switzerland. We are fiercely determined to develop our own dualstack-compatible backbone, and at the time of writing we have some 8000 bilateral peering sessions. Our backbone enables us to use the latest technologies in a logical way, to set our prices exactly where we want to and to your benefit, and to apply our core area of expertise at the very highest level.
