The carrier's CEO Olaf Swantee also said that "With Huawei's innovative 5G solution and global hands-on 5G deployment experience, we are strongly confident to provide best user experience to our customers that underpins our position as No.1 5G provider in Switzerland."
Other two carriers
Sunrise owns about one fourth of the Swiss mobile market. The company rivals Swisscom and Salt in the country.
Swisscom is the largest carrier, which covered more than half of the Swiss population by the end of 2017. It promised to roll out 5G smartphones in mid-2019 and cover 60 towns by the end of year.
The last carrier, Salt, chose Nokia to be the supplier. It also planned to launch the 5G service in 2019 with no further details provided to the public.
