High-quality public service broadcasting impossible without radio and television reception fees

"Digital Switzerland" Strategy

Switzerland should consistently exploit the opportunities of digitisation in all areas of life. This is the focus of the Federal Council's "Digital Switzerland" Strategy which was adopted in April 2016. The Federal Council wishes to ensure that Switzerland can benefit from increasing digitisation and develop even more dynamically as an innovative national economy and as a location for research and innovation. The new strategy supersedes the Federal Council's Strategy for an Information Society in Switzerland dating from 2012.

The Federal Office of Communications (OFCOM) deals with questions related to telecommunications, broadcasting and post. In these areas, OFCOM is responsible for tasks relating to regulation and to national authority, in particular ensuring the quality of the universal service and the public service. The Office prepares the decisions of the Swiss government (the Federal Council), the Swiss Federal Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications (DETEC) and the Swiss Federal Communications Commission (ComCom). OFCOM is also developing international activities.
