In our regional analysis of five of the largest cities in Switzerland — Basel, Bern, Geneva, Lausanne and Zurich — we saw fierce competition between all three operators. Out of a total of 30 awards for the taking, only 17 awards were won outright, of which 16 were won by Swisscom while Salt won one award. But given its dominance at the national level, it was not surprising to see Swisscom win the lion's share of our awards. The remaining 13 (out of 30) awards resulted in a tie between two or more operators.
