    I have spent many months now trying to resolve an issue with my broadband which impacts my business significantly, not least because my business phone line remains dead despite many hours spent on the phone to Vodafone. The broadband is fast when it works. Other than that I have nothing positive to add. Many broken promises to fix/call me back/take ownership of the problem until it’s fixed and still, my business is being impacted very negatively by the lack of a functioning landline. I certainly wouldn’t recommend the service to anyone looking for reliability and a competent Customer Service team

    They were initially scheduled to set up my broadband on Friday, between 13:00 and 18:00. However, the engineer contacted me and offered to do the installation today, considering Monday is a bank holiday. Later, I received a text notifying me that they rescheduled my appointment for the following Friday, over a week away.

    It's logical that if they couldn't fulfill their commitment on Friday, they should prioritize the first available slot on the next working day. The decision to move my appointment a week later is perplexing. Despite calling them more than 20 times and explaining the situation, it seems they are not comprehending my concerns. They appear unwilling to take responsibility, failing to recognize the significance of internet connectivity for people working from home.

    Regrettably, I've encountered similar issues with Vodafone in the Netherlands. It's frustrating to have trusted them again in the UK, only to face similar disappointment. I certainly wouldn't recommend their services, not even to my adversaries.

    By far, the most incompetent broadband provider I've come across in the UK. Steer clear from them! Their lack of action on their own committed communication over the phone is astonishing. Take my advice and avoid them. Try any other option and you'll be thanking me later.

    As per other reviews on here. The WiFi router is absolute junk! The signal constantly drops out. The router has to be rebooted at least once a day and sometimes multiple times in order to regain a signal. When it works, it’s great! The problem is, it fails to work more than it does!

    Customer service is an endless loop of being fobbed off. This issue has been going on for two months now. First I’m told an update didn’t install correctly, then I’m rod it’s a cache issue, then they reset the router, then it’s more updates! The excuses go on and on. I have requested a replacement or an envy - they won’t provide either. The latest response is, everything is ok from their side, so as far as they are concerned, there is no problem - even though I can’t connect to the internet! I was also told to run an Ethernet cable and use that instead!

    The company is a joke. I’d like to know why ofcom are not taking them to task, as they are in breach of contract by failing to provide the service being paid for - and seem incapable of resolving the issue.

    To cap it all, they couldn’t provide me with a copy of their complaints procedures. Only to say they have raised a complaint on my behalf! Utter and complete nonsense.

    I will not be using them again.

    Absolutely shocking how often the connection to the internet drops out. The router is useless and arbitrarily decides to block certain streaming apps on the TV until you restart the router.

    Connection issues are getting more and more frequent. Used to notice it once or twice a month, now it's multiple times a day. "UKs most reliable network"? Utter rubbish.

    Customer service is an utter joke, if you do get through to someone they're just reading off a script (not blaming them, it's not their fault they're not given any ability to get anything done), they're basically an answering service.

    Price has gone up by 20% of what we were originally paying. Fortunately we're out of contact now and moving to another provider. Won't be partaking of their services again.

    Appalling company. Relative pays bill on time then receives email saying she's been cut off due to non payment. It happens every month. Never anyone at the end of the phone who can or will help, and most of them can't understand English. Worst company ever

    Couldnt recommend less. Go with literally any other provider and save yourself the headache of dealing with their awful customer service. Signed up for broadband and received a confirmation email and contract. 2 weeks later still hadn't received a router as promised or a confirmation of when the engineer was coming. spent 2 hours with customer service which was totally unhelpful and told me my order didn't exist. kept saying I was giving them the wrong postcode when it was the postcode they confirmed in their own email. phone is useless- goes to an automated message then hangs up.

    Terrible company, poor customer service. I’ve had payment issues with them throughout the lifetime of my broadband. Since their communication with customers is so poor, I have no idea about what is going on with my account until I am disconnected and have to call them.
    The final straw was when they permanently disconnected my service and sent me a text message 1 day before the disconnect saying ‘sorry to hear you are leaving us’ as if I had requested this. On calling them THREE TIMES and being told various things by different agents, on the third try I was told it was disconnected because they no longer offer the broadband tariff I was on a 23 month contract for, only fibre, which is not supported in my area. End of story, no reconnection, compensation, apology or anything. I was shocked and appalled that they would just leave a customer high and dry like that, not give enough warning for me to at least sort out alternative broadband and then being told various lies by their agents. Please do not fall in the same trap I did and avoid Vodafone at all costs. The broadband is sketchy and not that super fast anyway and you end up with price hikes every other month too. AVOID, AVOID, AVOID!
