    Happy with speed but it did disconnect at least 2-3 times a month for a few minutes, so not entirely happy with the continuity of the service. The biggest thing I'm annoyed with is that Vodafone ask for the router and accessories back after the contract ends(mine was 18 months). They keep threatening with a £72 fine if not returned in the original package and condition. They didn't bother to send the return bag as promised even after I reached out to them twice. Still figuring out how and where to return the the device. Don't know how such a basic device can cost £72 beats me. I am never going to use Vodafone ever or recommend it to anyone. Sad and disappointed.

    I wish I'd never used Vodafone for broadband using their Gigacube. We have two, one at home and one at work and they are worse than diabolical.
    Several reboots are required a week to even get service although speeds are good for the first 10 minutes after a reboot.

    The two routers are in seperate towns so its not a mast issue.
    We pay for the unlimited service which is supposed to give unlimited everything and as fast as possible. Its simply not true.


    Honestly, do yourself a favour and steer clear of this service.

    Vodafone customer service is absolutely awful. Called multiple times to report poor connection. I was told I would be called back but either calls did not happen or staff didn’t seem to be trained to resolve issue and presented conflicting solutions without resolution. I put in a complaint recently but manager did not follow up and call back

    Broadband ticked over ok but I was a low user. The fun started when I vacated the property. My contract date was 21st monthly, Vodafone were contacted to cancel the service on 30th Sept, which they did however instead of issuing a closing account for the pro-rata amount the wanted the FULL monthly payment for which they will eventually refund the difference, in the meantime they are charging the new tenants from 1st month. At the point of writing this I have been on a call with them for over 49mins & counting. Ive spoken to 2 different people who a failed to understand & now tell me I will be charged a late payment fee because they havent issued the correct bill. I'm now being transferred to a 3rd person..oh joy another long wait with dreadful music playing. This is appalling service. Now I've been advised he doesnt want to put me through to someone else another & starts arguing with me when Ive been perfectly polite but firm that I wanted this resolved & to be given the amount due to the closing date so I could make immediate payment. At the last point I was left on the line for 30mins The call ended without resolution after 1hr 20min 46secs. APPALLING SERVICE

    I came looking for reviews of Vodafone's fibre broadband service after my internet died again this evening.

    I agree with other reviewers. Vodafone fibre internet drops at least once a day, and usually more than that. I haven't bothered contacting support, I cancelled my contract within the 'cooling off' period. I'm going to try Virgin fibre, hopefully that will be better.

    Customer service is friendly and tries to be helpful, which is nice since I've spent many hours dealing with a delivered failing modem and a modem delivered with no configuration.
    We had Plusnet up until Monday and it was always stable as a rock.
    We were promised an easy switch, we have been lied to.

    Black box installed nearly half way up on white wall with it's green lights flashing, have called multiple times to have it moved lower to skirting & been sent back & forth. Been told if it is not a danger or have technical problems they cannot do anything, are these people idiots it's been installed awfully inappropriately all they have to do is get openreach the jokers to get it placed adequately like it should of been. The level of service these days is beyond reasonable they literally don't give a sh#t about customer satisfaction anymore, all you get are excuses why they can't get issues resolved rather than getting them done. Customer service in this country if you can call it that, has gone right down the sh#tter in the last few decades & only going to keep getting worse & they expect customer's to be calm & relaxed.

    Apparently I’m getting great broadband speed, but I don’t think the Wi-Fi router can handle that many devices as whenever I’m streaming TV it constantly buffers. I’ve tried all of the recommendations Vodafone have for improving the situation and none work. Even ended up connecting the TV by the ethernet cable and still have problems. I Don’t think the router can handle that many devices compared with the one from BT which was fine. Wish I hadn’t switched to Vodafone.

    Customer service is terrible especially the phone operator which takes ages to get through because it keeps asking "Tell us in a few words what your call is regarding". When you explain it it replies "I'm sorry, I didn't get that..." - drives you mad. Then the callers don't seem to understand what your issue is and are inadequate.
    I had an issue at the end of my contract when I switched to a new supplier which was no fault of my own and Vodafone would pass left right and centre to another person, and even told me to call the new supplier and few times. All in all, I had to call them 7-8 times to sort out the issue and will be writing a complaint to them.

    Broadband speed is fine, WHEN IT WORKS. Almost on a daily basis broadband won't work for a few minutes (sometimes longer) and will disconnect you before coming back on when you are expecting a constant uninterrupted service.
    Don't fall for the "cheap" price. It's cheap for a reason

    shame offcom hasn't done anything about forcing these companies to make transferring to a different type of service provider easier. Vodafone are just about un-contactable. Paying for a service i can't use, then paying for call costs for 40+ minutes and still not get through to to cancel.

    Signed up Home Broadband with Vodafone. It is supposed to go live on 13 Sept but didn't happen. After multiple calls with Vodafone, they top me up 50GB on my mobile, so that I can still use hotspot to work with my laptop. Vodafone said the broadband should go live after midnight. Next day still the same, no broadband. Call Vodafone again, the support staff said there was a technical fault on the line that OpenReach needs to resolve and it won't get fixed until 18th Sept!!!! So Vodafone left my family stranded without internet at all for another 5 days!!! The live chat staff ensured me that I can collect a USB mobile dongle from a nearby Vodafone store to plug into my broadband router for the time being.

    So I went to a store to collect it. The staff said you can't get it free. They have to put a £20 charge on my account and sign up a new £30 monthly contract for that. Then cancel within 30 days after the broadband is fixed and get a £20 refund back.

    Despite endless hours (and many more in the future) of trying to sort it out and none of this is my fault (well, apart from signing with Vodafone Broadband), THEY UPSALE MY PROBLEM.

    All the customer service teams were trying to be helpful and polite but there solutions actually bring more hassle.

    Since I am going from a normal broadband to fibre which I imagine it requires proper technical upgrade at the exchange box, I would recommend anyone to sign a 12 months fibre contract with the broadband company which actually owns the physical line and then switch to another cheaper fibre provider after that.

    After nearly a 3 month delay to activation of my service I took comfort that Vodafone was part of the broadband compensation scheme. This may be the case but they will use every trick in the book to not honour what you may be entitled to.

    It's now 4 months since my service was activated but I'm yet to receive anything on compensation. Every month Vodafone agree what I'm owed but never ever apply it and continue to bill me. This is the most frustrating company to deal with, please please avoid. I've every correspondence backed up but they still will try to avoid paying you and when you think you've it sorted the bill lands in and they pretend not to know anything previously. Poor poor service

    Absolutely appalled by Vodafone's customer service. When trying to call them you get put on hold for over 30 minutes. When I finally managed to cancel my account which can only be done by phone. They didn't even cancel it and kept trying to charge me. I spoke to at least 4 people who kept saying that I didn't have any further payments to make and they would resolve the issue. All of them were being dishonest as the same issue kept coming up. Really fed up with the whole situation and people that I spoke to not doing their job properly.

    Don’t do it. There’s a reason why they are cheap. No issues with broadband in 5 years since I have owned this property. And now....problems daily. My broadband drops out minimum 10 times per day. 2 BT engineers later who have said nothing wrong with the line, and a new Vodafone router and the problem persists. The people on their customer service line are quite friendly and relatively helpful but the honest truth is that they haven’t fixed my problem despite in excess of 8 hours on the end of the phone to them. Go somewhere with a history of providing good broadband service.....Vodafone is not it

    Swapped from Plusnet to Vodafone due to slightly cheaper rates and free Amazon voucher. The swap was a pain as I the internet didn't work and was told it was a problem with the activation their end. A second call revealed it was actually a problem my end. The speeds are as good as Plusnet but the signal strength is appalling. I rang within the 14 days to cancel and was on the phone for over half an hour to a telesales person in another country (which is fine) who didn't have a clue what they were talking about (which wasn't fine). I was told I would have to pay circa £170 to cancel even though it was within 14 days of the initial setup. When I said I can prove it's within the 14 days she said call back tomorrow (which would have been out of the 14 days). Eventually, they said I could cancel but (unlike what I was originally told) it would have to be immediate which would leave me with no internet for circa 2 weeks while I'm meant to be working from home. Have reluctantly stayed with them. Will get a broadband booster for the signal but will deffo swap back to Plusnet when the contract ends.

    Please do not consider Vodafone broadband unless you know someone who lives very close who gets a good signal from them. I am 3 weeks in to attempting to sort out intermittent poor speeds and internet dropping out - not much use when you're trying to work over Zoom, especially in these stay at home times. My laptop and phone are only 4 feet away from the router and the strength of signal varies all the time. I only have 4 bits of kit at most attached at any time - laptop, mobile phone, printer and Amazon Firestick. Lovely staff (with 1 exception) trying to sort me out, but no joy so far

    Worst company we have ever dealt with. If you want unreliable broadband with no customer service then this is the company for you. The only way to speak to them is via webchat which is less than useless. Have they not realised yet that if the internet isnt working then a webchat isnt going to be much use to their customer. When you do get into a chat with an idiot at the other end they just repeat the same thing in a different way until you get fed up or disconnected

    Connection constantly dropping cannot use WiFi for Internet calling. Tried contacting customer service as Internet not working for a week, live chat for half an hour then no longer able to reply to questions as no text box on page. £20 a month better maybe to spend a bit more. Definately will be be looking for new provider when contract needs renewal

    The ‘guaranteed speed’ is a complete and utter scam. They advertise this is actually speed when it is anything but. My router is apparently achieving 76mbps, yet on any device I test the connection on I’m lucky to get as little as 5mbps. Call vodafone and they’ll run tests just to tell you the connection is ‘good on their end’ before asking you to change frequency settings etc. Two weeks down the line and numerous phone calls later I am fed up of the substandard service and internet speed and therefore I have cancelled and will be switching provider.

    I switched to Vodafone due to their promised broadband speeds. I received my router and after a hitch eventually got set up. Over the first month my speeds were shockingly slow. After several online chats i got a technician out to fix my phone line. The following month i kept losing my internet. After several online chats i was promised a new router as mines was allegedly faulty. After two weeks waiting i still had no router. Online advisers denied any knowledge of promising a new router despite me keeping screenshots of conversations. I then had to call an advisor and again was promised the issue would be resolved. Vodafone will give you the runaround so keep records of conversations. Im far from impressed and definitely wouldn't recommend Vodafone to anyone...

    Not best decision I made but was hoping for better speed and better monthly outgoing price. My dowload is only 1/2 of promised but I was told its because of my old laptop wifi. I cannot watch any of streeming websites and VPN dowload site will be blocked by Vodafone so I almost regret I lost my old provider. If I knew this I would not bother by better speed .

    I thought Vodafone broadband was great and good value. However, as many other people have been experiencing, I have had no internet for 8 days now.... Customer service is appalling and just gives standard responses like "We value our customers and are working to get this fixed".

    Wish I had never gone with Vodafone. They have massive process and customer service issues. The agents just don't know what they are doing, have no agency and it is all so painful. The hours I have spent on the phone trying to sort stuff out. Simply put I have the following issues. 1) Internet regularly cuts out and 4G backup doesn't kick in 2) The Wifi Pro base station and boosters are just cr*p. They don't seem to manage any distance. Opposite the front door is a booster and the Ring doorbell can't connect. 15 ft with a small corner of the room blocking line of site and they don't work. They are really bad and you pay a lot for them. The Wifi Guarantee is meaningless as what can they do? Always someone promises it will improve but nothing changes. Why would I call a wifi expert when it takes 1 hour on the phone to get nowhere?
    I couldn't recommend them in a million years. The service and product are very poor.

    Do you want to be on hold for ages and for them to keep getting your address wrong sending you parcels and internet to the wrong addresses to be constantly be told restarting the router will fix your problems and never be able to speak to someone who understands you? Then this is your company!

    Vodafone Broadband = Cheap & Nasty:
    1) Can't get full wi-fi coverage in a 2-bed flat
    2) When do get signal, it will randomly cut out for no apparent reason
    3) Lost broadband for 5+ days, no compo
    Was previously a customer of Talk talk for 5 years, never had an issue.
    Pay a bit more for another provider.

    I thought that combining my mobile and broadband provider would make life easier. Wrong. Things started badly when Vodafone changed my landline number without informing me (I subsequently found out that the number was allocated to someone else). That took a week to resolve. Since then I have experienced multiple issues trying to log on to my account (all I want to do is get a copy of my bill) and each time it seems to take 2 to 5 days to resolve the problem. Will not be renewing my contract.

    Constantly drops out and not the speed advertised. Worst thing though is that I signed up for a discount price for 18 months, and within 2 months they hiked the price by 10%! DOn't fall for their specilal offers. Thats just to tempt you in and they don't last the length of the contract.

    Worst tech support in the world! they haven't got a clue

    Raised a case with 'support' about less than 1MB/s download speed in the evening only. Mornings and afternoons were totally fine, just dropped to unusable speed during peak hours.

    Every time I called them quoting the ticket reference, I'd ask them to describe the issue I was experiencing... it would take them about 5 minutes (at least) to figure out what I was complaining about! and most of the time I'd have to tell them the problem again. I think they just write notes on their computer system which is a terrible way to manage tech support tickets - that coupled with poor grasp of English Grammar means that their notes are illegible so the next tech admin cant decipher what the previous guy wrote (and so on). It's really not the fault of the support staff - vodafone have given them this antiquated IT system and they have put draconian time wasting procedures in place. Vodafone are no doubt taking advantage of these cheap call centers in Egypt and provide them with minimal training,

    Then they asked me to take screenshots from speedtest.net for morning, afternoon and evening and send them the results via email - so that they could escalate the case to 3rd line support. I did so, it takes them 24 hours to validate the screenshots and then they ended up rejecting it - because they want the screenshot to cover the whole desktop!.. then I submit again and they reject again. Then I submit again and they reject again for some other silly reason. Each submission/rejection process takes 24 hours (minimum). Total bunch of time wasters

    2nd Line support may as well be an automated voice service. 'Have you tried rebooting the router? Have you tried an ethernet cable? Have you tried another device? in that case send screenshots!' That's all they've got.

    Also 2nd line, cannot communicate verbally with 3rd line. They send each other emails. Turn around to respond to each email is 24 hours (min).. they just wasted days and days and days and did absolutely nothing. My cancellation has happened before the ticket even made it to third line. Last I heard was they rejected the screenshots again for a 5th time due to two chrome tabs being open in one of the screenshots

    Cheap broadband, good when it works - if you have any issues tech support is a nightmare.

    My two cents, they were quite happy to hear that I got so frustrated that I wanted to cancel. They pretty much rolled out the red carpet and gave me a months refund and said they'd fast track the termination to be in 48 hours. I guess every case they refer to OpenReach costs them money.. that's why they put so many barriers in the way. They're happier for you to leave and take the issue with you to your next supplier. It works out cheaper for them.

    We signed up in late February, the installation was not great but the actual internet service was okay.
    The main problem is that Vodafone have increased our price by 15%, a month after the service started. We can't leave without a penalty and they refuse to do anything about it. We feel completely ripped off.

    I changed from BT to Vodaphone as cost was half that of BT with 5x faster speed promised. The experience has been a disaster. I live out of two addresses and Vodafone refused to deliver the router to the supply address as that was not the address recorded with the payment card. Not a major problem, as my wife was at the card address at that time. The delivery driver arrived at the expected time, but waited only seconds for the door to be answered before leaving - my wife answered the door to see the driver turning the corner. An email was sent promising delivery the following day but no time, and no facility to contact the delivery people. My wife stayed in all day to receive the parcel the following day, changing her prior arrangements, but there was no delivery. Eventually my wife drove a round trip 40 miles to collect the router. The following day my BT supply terminated. I tried connecting through the old BT router but could not make this work. When my wife arrived from the other property with the router I spent several hours trying to make it work. Eventually, on waiting ages for Vodafone service to answer the phone, I was told that my scheduled day for connection to Vodafone had been postponed a week as they had been unable to arrange engineering works. So I am left without any access for a week. When I finally did get service I find download speed is only a fraction of that advertised. I reported this, but two weeks later I have not had any improvement. On top of that, in my backlog of emails I find one from Vodafone saying that an engineer had called for the installation as arranged, and as I had not been in for the appointment I would be charged a fee. But no appointment had been made - this was the first I had heard that any engineer visit was necessary, and anyway I had been in at the property all day on the date they stated and no engineer called. When I did get service no engineer had been to the property for the supposed works. At this point I discovered that the internet was way slower than promised speed. I reported this, but two weeks later I have had no resolution. I really wish I had not signed up with Vodafone, but committed to an 18mth contract now. Hopefully, once everything is sorted out and working properly it will be OK, but not very confident. I would advise others to stay away from Vodafone.

    Never ever refer a friend to vodafone as theyve not honoured the reward to my friend or myself after waiting several months. Ive wasted time chatting online, they keep givibg me different email addresses to send details to and never processed the reward. It should be straight forward and automatic. AVOID THEM IF YOU CAN. I WILL BE MOVING TO ANOTHER PROVIDER SOON

    Whilst the price and speed package was very well priced and i gone for it, using it for 6 months it has been unreliable service on monthly, weekly and daily basis, i experience frequent broadband disconnections and reduced speed, for example for the last 7 days i am running on 8Mbps download speed where is my package is 65Mbps.

    I didn't think its possible these days to have such unreliable connection and every time the speed issue gets resolved, its just matter of days when it drops again.

    Never had this issue with Sky, and even think of TalkTalk its been better.

    Its been such a waste of time constantly reporting these issues. Will be looking to move away
