Coverage – Coop Mobile Switzerland

Coop Mobile is a Swisscom MVNO, meaning Coop Mobile uses the Swisscom network and does not have its own mobile infrastructure.

To find out what to expect in terms of coverage with Coop Mobile, jump to the Swisscom Coverage section in my Switzerland SIM card buying guide.

Coop Mobile has no eSIMs.

Note that the Swiss mobile operators require your identification (EU ID/passport) for (future) eSIMs and for physical SIM cards.

You can consider getting a travel eSIM for Switzerland, which can, in specific scenarios, be cheaper than getting a SIM card from Swisscom.

Note that Coop Mobile offers VoLTE (Voice over LTE (4G)) if your phone supports it and you have enabled it in the settings.

Oh, you can also use VoWiFi (Voice over WiFi).
