Default natel easy smart - good for short travel? - 20-11-2012, 01:18

Will stay at Swiitzerland for 5 days. After surfing the swisscom, there is a Natel easy smart, SIM card CHF 19.90, including CHF 20.-credit. It stated CHF 2.00 per day (data).

Is it a good option for 5 days? I will use the SIM for data roaming and tethering only, will not use for calling.

Thanks a lot

I can very much recommend! One of the best prepaid experiences I have had in Europe - professional staff, everything working, great coverage, easy top-ups on all SBB ticket machines. Swiss quality

I have bought the Natel Easy BeFree myself, which at that time was 4 CHF per day. I wonder if my card will switch automatically to Natel Easy Smart...

As it cuts the costs of mobile internet by 50%, I think that's exactly what I'll do the next time I visit Switzerland. Thanks for the tip

Just be aware, that bandwidth is limited to 1 MBit/s down and 0.5 MBit/s up for the Smart tariff. Except for that I couldn't find any limitation.

Just picked it up at zrh where they told me they have new offer for 2 francs per day instead of 4 francs.

Only apn I could find was GPRS.swisscom.ch and I'm getting EDGE speeds. My mifi shows 3G and hspa connections but the speeds are horrible.

Maybe this cheaper promo was crippled?

Getting good signal strength on trains towards wengen.
