Cutter: Manuel Wenk

900 Swisscom customers in Winterthur will soon be without a 4G network. The owner has cancelled the rental contract for an antenna on his building in the Neuwiesen district. Now the population is speaking out.

How much is too much? In the Tagesanzeiger there is talk of a mobile phone black hole. A local resident is outraged by the telecoms giant's plans. An entire neighbourhood soon to be cut off from the network? Telephoning and surfing will no longer work from today. A case for the investigative team. Reporter Simon Balissat and cameraman Manuel Wenk uncover the story. How bad is the reception really?

When I flew the family nest over 15 years ago, I suddenly had to cook for myself. But it wasn’t long until this necessity became a virtue. Today, rattling those pots and pans is a fundamental part of my life. I’m a true foodie and devour everything from junk food to star-awarded cuisine. Literally. I eat way too fast.
