I recently switched from Sunrise to Wingo. My girlfriend with the same phone did not. This allowed for an interesting and totally unscientific comparison of the two providers in St. Gallen.

All tests were executed at the same time, with the same phones, on a Sunday afternoon during OLMA.

All in all, Wingo and Sunrise are relatively comparable within the city when measured outside.

Wingo has a slight advantage in speed. Ping was also consistently lower (better) with Wingo.

Subjectively Wingo seems better within buildings, but I don't have concrete data to back that up. Comment below, if you'd be interested in a follow up.
