The biggest WiFi network in Switzerland


Join the Wi-Free revolution

Your UPC WLAN modem transmits on two separate wireless networks. These are completely independent of one another. Only you have access to your private network. The second network is used for Wi-Free and is registered in the name of «UPC Wi-Free» for all WLAN modems. You can deactivate the second wireless network at any time via My UPC. If you do so, however, you will no longer be able to benefit from the advantages of Wi-Free.

Surf free of charge with Wi-Free in over 500,000 locations

Just some of the advantages of Wi-Free

  • Easy set-up - get up and running in seconds
  • Never run out of mobile data - just connect to the nearest hotspot
  • Always free - Save on roaming costs

Wi-Free goes even further with the Connect App

Our Connect App is where you can edit your Wi-Free profile, see available hotspots, and connect.

Thanks to the international Wi-Free concept, you can also surf the Internet for free at millions of locations abroad and by doing so save roaming costs in a simple way. The network name may differ from “UPC Wi-Free”, depending on the country you are visiting. Your user name and password for logging in are the same as in Switzerland, however. Look on the map to see where Wi-Free is already available and follow the steps to connect with Wi-Free.

Step 1 – Make a note of the network

Look for the country in which you wish to use Wi-Free in the table and make a note of the network name. Please note: if you were able to connect successfully with Wi-Free in Switzerland, you will be connected automatically in Hungary, Poland and Romania and do not need to configure anything.

Step 2 – Search for network

As soon as you have arrived in the destination country, search for the corresponding Wi-Free network name.

Step 3 – Login

If you have found the network, log in with your My UPC username and Wi-Free password, just like you did in Switzerland.

Step 4 – Connect

After connecting successfully with Wi-Free in the destination country, you will be connected automatically whenever Wi-Free is available.
