Following successful cooperations in the Basel region and in French-speaking Switzerland, from mid-September UPC will also be the new telecommunications provider in the EBL cable network in the Emmental / Luzerner Landschaft region. Some 20,000 additional homes will have access to Internet, TV, telephony and mobile services from UPC as a result.
