THE ANNOUNCED SALE
OF UPC TO SUNRISE
It is possible that you have already heard in the news: Our parent company Liberty Global has reached an agreement to sell UPC to Sunrise. The acquisition of UPC by Sunrise was approved by the competition authority at the end of September and is now subject to approval by Sunrise shareholders.
This will create a new dynamic in the Swiss telecommunications market which will bring you many advantages. We will bring together the best things from both companies and so we will be able to offer you even more attractive entertainment and communication offers.
Maybe you are currently asking yourself whether it is still worth becoming a UPC customer?
Definitely! UPC will also continue to invest in innovative products. Discover our new giga offering with Internet speeds of up to 1 Gbit/s. No matter whether you live in the city or in the country, the powerful UPC giga network gives you a high-speed Internet experience in a class of its own. In addition to this, our innovative UPC TV offers you a completely new TV experience. With our current mobile offer, you can enjoy roaming and unlimited data at highly attractive conditions.
After the transaction has been completed, Sunrise will take over UPC and all its customer relationships and contractual obligations.
So everything will stay the same until further notice?
Yes, because although Sunrise and Liberty Global have signed an agreement to sell UPC and the competition authorities have approved Sunrise's acquisition of UPC, the necessary approval of Sunrise shareholders is still pending. Only when this approval has been granted can the next step be taken and the formation of a new combined company will begin. This process takes time – we currently cannot predict how long it will take.
