The move follows the introduction of the new Long-Run Incremental Cost (LRIC) calculation method, which came into force this year.

Swisscom said the reduction brings its rates into line with the European average and represented a "fair, transparent and consistent implementation of the regulatory requirements".

Swisscom's latest move opens the way for more price competitiveness between companies active in the Swiss telecommunications market.
