Salt has launched a new roaming-free mobile phone service for the European Union and North America on Tuesday, beating rivals Swisscom, which announced a similar bid in early January.
The product of the third national operator, called “Plus Europe”, includes mobile internet, calls, SMS and unlimited MMS in Switzerland, as well as to the European Union, the United States and Canada, said the group.
The subscription is interesting for those who travel regularly in these countries. But also for all those who have friends and acquaintances there because in the monthly price you can also unlimited call from Switzerland to the US, Canada or Europe or send SMS and MMS there.
The Salt subscription is also cheaper than the offer of Swisscom, it costs 69.95 francs a month without a minimum contract period (instead of 89.95 francs).
New customers can conclude the Plus Europe price plan as well as existing customers who renew their previous subscription. The roaming flat rate is available now.

Important to know: Just like Swisscom’s InOne Mobile subscriptions, the new Salt offer is only a cheap solution if you’re really often traveling abroad and using data services there. For 30 to 50 francs a month there is already a flatrate for Switzerland, there are still a few hundred francs for roaming per year, before the expensive monthly subscription with everything is worthwhile.
