    Got Vodafone broadband in November. Had service for a week theb cut out. Then I was told thw earlier it could be fixed is on Christmas eve. Then come Christmas eve they said there was a problem with the phone like. A week later had an gas engineer out who fixed the line and the internet was working. Lasted for 2/3 weeks then cut out again. When chasing it up I was told it would take 3 days as per the contract. 3 days later I was told that the line had gone down. Had an engineer come out 10 days later who said that the line was fine now and the number had changed. I didn't want my number changed. I was not reimbursed any money that I had paid for a sub par service.

    The advertised download speed with my package is 38mps. I hae just tested it and it averages 21. I live literally 100ft from the exchange, so thats miles of fibre and 100ft of copper. When I call to complain they tell me the problem must be in my flat. The router is plugged directly into the socket on the wall, but if i test the speed using my laptop inches from the router there is no improvement. Customer service just say they are sending the signal at 40mps and refuse to send an engineer to investigate. It's not cheap, the customer service is awful and I can't even stream iPlayer or YouTube reliably.

    I cannot believe I was foolish enough to believe that this amateurish home broadband service provider could provide the same or better service than BT.. I regret the day I signed up for this diabolical service. With BT I was getting anything between 38 & 52 Mbps for the whole year. With Vodafone I receive anything between 40 and 0.42 Mbps ..... yes 0.42 Mbps! The majority of the time it is between 26 and 12 Mbps! At the time of writing this review it is constantly under 1 Mbps! When we started with Vodafone in Sept 2016 we were receiving 50 Mbps then, about a month later it reduced to anything between 38 and 20 Mbps. It has gradually reduced over the months (now March 2017) to its current speed of under 1 Mbps. I have contacted Vodafone technical support who are blaming my set-up at home for the diabolical speeds. If this was the case, how was it that I was receiving 50mbps for around a month when I first started the agreement and the 'set-up' I have now hasn't changed from the outset. Also, why was I, with BT, receiving between 38 and 52 Mbps with the same 'set-up'? Let's face it Vodafone, you are going back to the same attitude you had with your mobile phone customers in the 'noughties' i.e. You're are with us now.... tough! If you are thinking about joining Vodafone home broadband I really wouldn't bother if I were you.... go for another provider and pay for the line rental...... it will be with it in the long-run.

    I switched to Vodafone Broadband last year from Sky.

    First of all, the switch was seamless. I received the router in plenty of time and the service was turned on exactly when I was advised.

    Since then, I am pleased to say that the down/up speeds have been way faster than Sky giving pretty reliable downloads of between 35-65 Mb/s.

    Last off, I recently had an outage caused by Virgin Media putting a spade through some fibre in the street and the customer service I received was excellent.

    I thoroughly recommend it.

    Another tale of woe! How can Vodafone get it so wrong so often?

    I had a nightmare trying to sign up online so in the end I phoned up. After 2 hours of messing around online it was all sorted in 15 minutes on the phone.

    The good bits - the router turned up on time, the line when live and worked first time. I have 6 devices connected to the router and it hasn't fallen over yet.

    The bad bits - they put me on the wrong package and when I told them, they denied it, said the slow speed was because of DLM....I am not that stupid.

    Get to the online chat 3 days later and explain the problem, he says that I am on the 38mb package, so 34mb is quite good, shame I signed up for the 76mb package.

    Then they want me to sign up for another 18 month contract to change my package, then they don't want to honour the £28 per month, including the £3 per month discount. It will also be another 2 weeks before they can change.

    I reluctantly change and wait the 48 hours to get the email confirmation, I don't get it....I phone and they got the order wrong, it will be another 48 hours and then 14 working days.

    Maybe I am the lucky one, at least it will only be 3 to 4 weeks before I get what I pay for....

    I gave customer services 3 stars because they are nice people and polite and doing the best they can, they just work for a terrible company.

    Don't switch to Vodafone. Went online to change providers because sky were getting to expensive (but I always received brilliant broadband with them) saw Vodafone, same deal but half the price. Put my phone number in & postcode. All fine nothing to be done. I got half price router at £25 so I was happy. Router should arrive in a few days & im good to go. Got an email saying they didn't have any routers available so I had to wait another 10days, not a problem still happy to wait. Then got an email saying there's a problem & they have been trying to contact me for 4 days & where I haven't responded they've cancelled my order. I've been a Vodafone mobile customer for over 10 years & it was all going through the same billing account so they got my mobile number & house phone both with voicemails, so no one tried to ring me. Any way rang them to see what was going on. They said they couldn't use my line & I had to pay £60 to get a new line put in & now I've missed the deal so full price for the router £50. By this time sky has been cancelled. So I refused to pay any more & said I wouldn't have left sky if I had to pay £110. They were good enough to honour the original deal at £25. Which I was pleased they did so thank you Vodafone. Anyway I've been with them over a month now & the wifi is terrible! On YouTube, a couple of seconds in it starts buffering. Any websites take ages to load, it's crap. Dial up when I was a kid was better. I've rang them 5 times trying to get this sorted. The 1st 4 people were brilliant, polite, easy to understand & very helpful. I never waited over a minute to speak to someone really, really good customer service. The 5th bloke was crap. Every adviser had put a note on my file of what they had done, what I told them. So each person in turn would know what's going on & save me repeating myself. The 5th bloke just said "all the others were wrong, wifi is a privilege. We only guarantee fixed line broadband so I should just cancel". I would have give them 5 star customer service but the last fella ruined it. Vodafone did exstend my 30day cancellation time to help me sort the problem.

    I have been with vodafone for nearly a year and cannot wait for my contract to finish! The initial changeover went like a dream but unless you only want ethernet and perhaps a couple of wifi devices, I would strongly advise looking elsewhere. I suddenly started to get problems with wifi devices suddenly disconnecting. All I get from the customer services is that my contract is for the broadband only and wifi is a 'curtesy' service! They suggest that I only ever have a maximum of 5 devices on at once and switch off the wifi on TV's mobiles etc when not being specifically used! I should also use the app to make sure that I havent forgotten to switch anything off! We had more of the family at home when I was with sky and must have had about 15 devices connected at times, with no problems at all. The router also just cuts out on occasions and needs rebooting. Vodafone won't let you use another router. In future I will happily pay a bit more for a decent service

    I signed up in January online to the 76mb package, it was supposed to get actived on the 24th of January which then got pushed to the 4th of Feb, no biggy, then the router turned out to be faulty so I had to wait for a replacement and sent the other back, then when i finally got it plugged in turns out I'm on the 38mb package so I rang up to be told tomorow it'll change over, ring up tomorow and they say the operations team will ring you within 10 days. 10 days pass, no call, no email. A day later I get a text saying it'll upgrade within 24hours, it didn't. I keep ringing everyday to get told tomorow everytime and also thirty pound credit one time to compensate apparently. We're now 6 days past then and no upgrade, I called today to be told tomorow again, she also offered me thirty pound credit again to which I replied I'd already been offered that to which she replied that I haven't got that basically and she can't see any evidence of that ever being offer to me on the system. Seems abit of a joke to me, the customer service are friendly but nothing is gets done.

    Wish there was a minus star ....where do I start . Ok went from Sky to Vodaphone on the 31st January promise fibre for a lower price just plug in and switch on .....17 days later it worked although not working to great.The technical team and customer services promised to phone you back only once this occurred in the 17 days without service ,they kept blaming BTopen reach when the engineer came from BT this type of fault is normally rectified within 48 hours really evident that vodaphone didn't raise a ticket - my advice stick with a trusted brand ...I wrote to the director to fix my issues
