Why choose Init7 as your internet provider?

With 25/25 Gbit/sec (up/download), we offer our customers by far the fastest internet in Switzerland - at a sensational price-performance ratio.

We make no compromises: Broadband by Init7 is the Internet, the way it was always meant to be. Only the best is good enough: we provide the best internet using fibre-optic technology, via Easy7, Fiber7, Crossover7 and Hybrid7. Provision through copper cables is also available, via Copper7.

We use or own infrastructure on the fiber optic network provided by various public utilities, energy suppliers and the ex-monopolist. There are no sub-suppliers on Fiber7 from Layer-2 onwards - the PoPs and infrastructures is built and operated by Init7. We focus on quality: Access switches from Cisco, optics from FlexOptix, every Fiber7 PoP is never overbooked and has a backhaul capacity of 100 Gigabit or more to our own IP backbone (AS13030) with thousands of peering connections along with cache servers from Akamai and Netflix - at Fiber7 everything is dimensioned so that Gigabit is not just a marketing label. Unfortunately, Fiber7 is not available everywhere, and therefore there are alternative products (from Layer-3 nothing from subcontractors):

Crossover7: almost like Fiber7 (1Gbps), but on the LiteXchange platform from Litecom. Crossover7 uses DHCP to address the IP addresses. This allows a fixed IPv4 address per port, but not a /29 subnet. IPv6 is supported. Please contact us directly by e-mail. Backhaul capacities can be overbooked (not everywhere has a 10 Gigabit link).

Hybrid7: a symmetric Gigabit fiber optic offering, based on Swisscom's BBCS platform.

Copper7: DSL & FTTS (Fiber-to-the-Street) (ADSL, VDSL, Vectoring or, G.Fast) based on copper line and the BBCS platform. The technically achievable bandwidth corresponds to that of the respective Swisscom offer at the outlet location. A static /48 IPv6 network is included free of charge for all Copper7 and Hybrid7 subscriptions.

Hybrid7 & Copper7 use PPPoE with radius to assign the IP addresses. This enables one or more fixed IPv4 addresses (/29 subnet), as well as IPv6 (/48).

Crossover7, Hybrid7 and Copper7 customers will be migrated to Fiber7 when possible (individual agreement).
