Questions about the Digital Republic Subscription Options
We offer subscriptions with different speeds. Depending on the speed you need, the price varies. You can find the prices of all our offers here.
You can easily pay for your subscription with your credit card (Mastercard, Visa, Amex) or PostFinance by entering your preferred method of payment in your customer portal. TWINT will also be available soon.
The subscription runs for 30 days at a time. Whether you want to renew it after that or not, you can decide for yourself. You can also set up an automatic renewal. The subscription is then renewed automatically after the 30 days, provided you have a valid payment method.
Simply click on Customer Portal at the top of the page or visit connect.digitalrepublic.ch to manage all your subscriptions, SIM Cards, personal information and payment methods. You can also order additional SIM cards, adjust the speed of your subscriptions, pause and reactivate them.
Via the customer portal you can deactivate the automatic renewal for each SIM card individually. The subscription will then expire at the end of the paid period. There are no costs involved; the action can be carried out at any time.

Generally no, however we reserve the right to temporarily lower network speeds if malicious usage is suspected.
However, excessive use can lead to capacity problems, which has a direct impact on other mobile subscribers. We therefore ask you to use the mobile internet within a reasonable range.
In extreme cases (more than 97% and 99.89% of all customers) we reserve the right to temporarily lower the priority of data traffic. This means that speed will be reduced in places and at times of day when the mobile network is congested. This is generally only noticeable during data-intensive activities. In antenna cells that are not overloaded, the deprioritization does not affect the speed.
A phone number porting is currently not possible.
