Switzerland is a leader with regard to the quality and the range of its information technologies. The support of the government and market competition between the telecommunications providers play a beneficial role in the security of the IT infrastructure. Despite the difficulties caused by the country’s topography, the mobile telephone network has optimal coverage. ISDN and broadband connections ensure communications of the highest quality.
A reliable and stable electricity network
Energy distribution across the GGBa is remarkable. The region’s energy needs are met by a reliable and stable electricity network providing a dense and decentralized coverage from a variety of electrical substations. At the same time, natural gas, oil and other sources of energy are available at competitive prices in the region. The integration of the Swiss energy network into the European network ensures the energy supply even during periods of peak consumption. The GGBa is also active in the field of renewable energies, such as hydraulic energy, solar energy and wind power.
