Mobile data consumption with prepaid offers doubles in volume approx. every 18 months with unlimited data volume. That’s why prepaid customers should also have the option of surfing at lightning speeds with 5G.
‘With the Prepaid Unlimited options for unlimited calling, chatting, and surfing, Sunrise has already redefined the prepaid offer two years ago. One in four prepaid customers use a top smartphone model these days, and we are once again taking up a pioneering role by making prepaid even more attractive for our customers. Sunrise is now the first global provider to offer its prepaid customers unlimited 5G,‘ explains a delighted Olaf Santee, CEO of Sunrise.
Sunrise 5G prepaid
While the Prepaid Unlimited 30 and 90 days options offer surfing speeds of up to 300 Mbit/s using 4G, the new Unlimited 7 days option with 5G offers a speed of up to 2 Gbit/s.
The option can be ordered very conveniently by sending ‘7 days’ to 5522. Once the seven days have elapsed, the option renews automatically. If the prepaid credit is less than CHF 19.90 when this happens, the option is automatically deactivated. Prepaid Unlimited 7 days is available online at sunrise.ch as well as Sunrise Shops, starting immediately.
Sunrise is already providing over 309 towns/cities with 5G. This figure only includes areas where 5G coverage reaches at least 80% of the local population. Gradually, 5G coverage will extend to many other areas, including parts of major cities such as Zurich. The current coverage map, with a city and address search feature as well as the list of cities, is available on the Sunrise website.
Sunrise is currently expanding 5G in the 3.5 GHz range with up to 2 Gbit/s. Prepaid customers are now also benefiting from this, whereas hardly any compatible devices are still available for two-class 5G and the connection speeds do not differ significantly from 4G+.
