    Absolute Scam if you are going tot ake the 30 day rolling contract. They will charge you for another 30days "notice" so you would have to cancel the contract the moment you started!

    Customer service not interested at all to help and they just repeat garbage back over and over.

    DO NOT BUY THE 30 Day rolling contract .... SCAM.... Slow speed

    Believe me. The absolute worst internet service I have ever had. Drop out occur a minimum of 20 times per day. I never add to reviews but this service has frustrated me so much that I felt I had to. Please, for your own mental health, stay clear of this service.

    I switched to vodafone after having Dky broadband for the years (never complained). My switch was just a cost-saving decision.

    Vodafone broadband was supposed to go live on a Friday, didn't and so I phone their customer service on Saturday and Sunday who both promised the service will go live in 24hrs. Never happened. 2 weeks later I was still without internet with a lousy 50gb add on on my mobile package to use instead.

    I have now switched to plusnet which have been amazing. Customer service keep you updated on progress and service date was delivered on time :)

    After being with this company for almost 2 34 months It is time for change, the network has become worse, the service is terrible and the reliability is useless on average i have to call their customer services atleast once a month to get them to fix something, i have already had 4 dongles in 2 18 month contract periods due to the dongle breaking (not my fault) pluss you cannot open your nat types for use with Xbox 360 (i have tried everything). if you want mobile broadband dont get it from Vodafone

    Thought I got a good deal with Vodahone mobile broadband hub-Mifi. Advertised speeds of up to 150mbs. Took it to various places inside and outside - Nowhere near that - Best I ever got was 35 outside.
    It does not as advertised replace your fixed broadband. It is rarely about 8 mbs and often as low as 1.5 which it is now. Absolute rubbish. If you see any good offers for - this walk on by!

    We have been without wifi for one whole week. We set up a new contract with this company a week ago, and have been left in the lurch since then. Our wifi was promised to be immediately running after our previous contract expired, however Vodafone failed to connect our wires properly. Since then we have been waiting for someone to come to our house to fix their mistake, and having been promised several appointments, as of yet no one has turned up.

    Ordered 76mb fibre in December 2016. Activation date was Jan 11th. January 11th came and nothing was working. Called up and they said it should be sorted by 12am. Next day it still wasn't activated so I got in touch with customer services who "checked the line" and said it had been activated and to restart the router and try again in 20mims. 30 mins later it still wasn't working so I called back and found out there was a delay and should be activated by 13th. 13th came and nothing happened so finally Vodafone got in touch with me and said don't worry an engineer will get it sorted by January 30th! Guess what? January 30th came and the work was "nearly complete" and would be ready by February 6th. It's now February 6th and the engineer is still resolving the problem (bear in mind we already had Fibre with Talk Talk so there really isn't a problem with the line). I've cancelled the order and will cancel my mobile contract on the back of their appalling service. This doesn't even include the number of calls I've had to make to get a straight answer or solve even the most simple problems. I would strongly recommend avoiding Vodafone Home Broadband unless you're willing to go through a lot of hassle.

    I purchased a 50GB data sim contract with the option video package totalling £37 a month plus the dongle.

    The my account on the website failed to ever work so I couldn't check how much data I had left or put a data cap on my device.

    I rang Vodafone up numerous times, some said they would call back (they didn't) other times they were getting "specialists" to fix the issues. Out of the 5 or 6 times this happened they failed to fix it. The customer service agent (CSA) said that they would cover any data in case I go over as they themselves couldn't put on a data cap. (Which is shocking). After the issue still occuring and sick of waiting on hold everytime I call trying to see how much data I have left because the issue was still not sorted, I contacted the complaints number.

    Complaints team were just as bad, I was promised a call back from a supervisor multiple times (which never happened) - they just don't care.

    The issue was still not fixed and I went over my data by quite a bit despite the previous CSA saying I would be covered. Vodafone's fees for going over your data is extortionate and despite being meant to be covered as I couldn't put on a data cap as the issue was still not fixed, they preceded to want to charge me £180 in overcharges. (Going over 15GB over my data and they charge £180, whereas my contract is £30 for 50GB.)

    I spent a long time on the phone with multiple calls trying to get this escalated, turns out they were hopeless. After wanting to burst my own ear drums after listening to the same songs over and over again on hold, they refused to help. They overcharged me £68 in the end and I cancelled my contract with them. I spent a total of around 15-20 hours on the phone with them over a couple of months.

    As promised to the guy on the phone I plan to spread the word of mouth around to anyone who mentions Vodafone or who is considering. They used to be good but have got too big for their boots and scam their customers despite making promises.

    I was going to take them to court, although this is not worth the hassle for £68 and they clearly knew that. But it's fine if they want to focus on this short term approach that leaves them to be the most hated phone network provider in the UK.

    The issue was simple and these "specialists" and CSA's were completely unhelpful. Their focus on "soothing" customers and not actually fixing issues shows how inadequate and totally unacceptable their service is.

    Never going back to Vodafone now...

    If Vodafone would like to contact me and make amends they can find my contact number through my Vodafone account.

    Vodafone broadband is basically a scam, don't ever opt into it. I have had it for 2 years and it only "kind of" worked within the first 1-2 months probably.Rest if the times I used hotspot. I was bound to a contract so couldn't opt out the 1st year without a penalty so had to wait. I am located in central London (zone 2 to be exact) and it was very poor connection speed even though the signal showed it was strong. Don't do this to yourself, it's a waste of time, money and mental energy.

    This words bellow represents my experience with vodafone:

    rip-off - charging amounts without stating what it is ( refunded but I had to call twice)
    no customer service at all: I had so many problems with them and the only thing I heard was sorry, they really dont care about customer, I wrote my problems at a vodafone survey, begging for a manager to read my letter, someone has to do something, someone that has a bit of professionalism must read all this reviews and do something
    frustration;
    disappointment;
    insulting;
    wast of time;
    wast of money;
    the worst provider ever, I was a bt customer for 2 years, than changed to virgin, and very very unfortunately changed to the worst internet provider in the UK >>> VODAFONE, mobile phone service also is a crap. Please avoid, anyone want more details please contact, serius I dont want anyone to suffer like me. Stop giving money to this company

    Extremely poor experience. Signed up to service on 15 August with no possibility for an engineering appointment until 4 September.

    This was suddenly changed to 11 September and was notified by SMS (no check if the new date was still fine).

    Tried to get more information on exact arrival time but customer service had no insight. On the day waited for the entire allocated timeslot with NO SHOW!

    No phone call, no notification, no information. Simply - NO SHOW.

    After contacting Vodafone contact center the customer care rep as helpful as she was trying to be, regretfully told me the next possible appointment was not avaiable until 2 October (3 weeks time!!!)

    Extremely unreliable. Extremely poor experience.

    I have made the decision to go with BT. Appointment is approximately sitll a 3 week wait from now, but no longer trust Vodafone that they will even show up.

    AVOID!

    Horrible horrible service, slow speed and incompetent customer service and they'll do everything it takes and lie to make you sign a contract with them. I've been deceived and now have to pay £350 to get the contract cancelled. Be careful people, don't make my same mistake

    Terrible, frankly criminal usage system that makes it very easy to slip up and go over your limit and then they charge you utterly extortionate amounts. Their online and phone services are a ridiculous bureaucracy. EE has a much saner system.

    This is by far the worst company that I have ever encountered in my life, bearing in mind I've been in the UK for the last 10 years and have gone through Orange, O2, Three, etc... Their customer service is a joke and a team of unprofessional individuals who are rude and incapable of ever solving problems that they've caused. In the last 4 months, I have called over 15 times, spent over 7.5 hours (given the fact that they place you on hold and phone calls average at 30 minutes per call, and this one time I stayed on for 2 hours before the agent just hung up on me). My contract ended in June, prior to the contract ending, I went into the shop a month before and called to inform them that i had no desire of renewing the contract as I had been paying for a year for a contract that i wasn't using as the first month of me having the phone, the phone got stolen in a house burglary for which I had a police report as evidence. They stated that there was nothing I could do as I didn't have insurance. Also some months my bill would be higher for a contract that was never used but they always had an excuse. So understandably when the contract ended, i was keen to be done with this ordeal. However the real ordeal came from me being charged for the last 4 months for a contract that was supposedly finished and I'd asked to cancel. Agents one time would reassure me that it'd been cancelled and a refund would be given, then I'd be charged the next month and the same cycle would start back. This month was the worst with rude agents and them claiming they'd refunded me, taking my debit card details and nothing to show for it. I would NOT recommend this.

    Extremely bad. The first 3 - 6 months it works well then when a problem occurs (which will) you'll release your stuck with what you have unless you switch. The worse customer service I have ever received. Ever. They did nothing. Have done nothing and it is apparent they will do nothing. Save yourself the hassle and go to another company instead of having to experience this.

    I went live on Voda BB one month ago. I'd been using plusnet through John Lewis and moved because their cust service was very poor and at one point they input another customer's information into my settings and then ignored me!
    Very very troubling.

    But at least the speeds had always been around 75mb.

    From day 1 Vodafone BB was giving me only 8/9 mbs download ( 8/9 upload too though) on a 37 mb line. 10 days of wasting time testing and calling and speaking to people it eventually went to around 75mbs. However a week or two later it's back to a very consistent 9.5 mb download speed.

    Yet again Voda cust ervice want me to check my connections and reet my router (their std answer to everything) but of course just like last time this makes no difference.

    Their understand and tehnical repertoir is very poor.

    They don't allow me to speak to the real technical people and have now waited 4 days so far and had no imporvement of technical assistance.

    A registerd a complaint and asked for escalation which basically meant I got a amanger to call me with no info whatsoeve and still waiting for help. Ludicrous.

    The people I speak to want to help but they don't have the skils or resources to do anything.

    If you're thinking of VODAFONE - go elsewhere. Very very poor.

    Switched from TalkTalk last February, won over by the cheaper price and faster speeds. Got the 76mb service. They said my connection would be 80mb, but it has been only 40mb - until a few days ago, now it has been 23-30mb! I complained shortly after I joined. They said I was in a heavy usage area, but Openreach were going to fix it. Nearly 4 months later I am still waiting. Not sure I believe their reason, as I have checked the speed at various times throughout the day and night (including early hours) and it was the same (sure there can't be heavy usage in the area 24 hours a day). As they are not fulfilling their end of the contract, they said I can leave without paying the rest of the year, or downgrade with no fees. However, when I asked to downgrade, they refused and said the problem should be fixed soon. Not fair that I am paying for Fibre 76 and getting about Fibre 38 speeds. Think I will leave them soon. Now I regret leaving TalkTalk. Had no speed problems with them, or BT previously. AVOID.

    Absolutely terrible service. Like a previous reviewer I didn't actually get connected to the service despite 3 weeks of constant phone calls to Vodaphone and excuse after excuse of why they couldn't connect the service. I had to cancel until the as I had no internet for 3 weeks and the empty promises of when the activation date would be. I would have had more respect for the company if they would have been honest that they couldn't connect me for whatever reason rather than spinning a yarn for weeks. I switch to a differentt provider (another mobile network provider) who within an hour of signing a contract with them emailed me an activation date. I will never get back the hours of phone calls to Vodaphone. I would categorically never use this company again. Terrible.

    Firstly Vodafone lost my phone number even after me explicitly asking to have it transferred, nothing they can do apparently. The router loses ADSL connection several times a day, 3 months after install it hasn't stayed connected for more than 24hrs. The router itself is terrible. Wireless connected devices can't communicate with wired devices, eg my Apple TV is connected to the router via Ethernet and my iPad cannot see the device as its wireless. Several hours of phone calls to customer services to try and solve these issues with no joy so I'm stuck with this for another 15months. AVOID!!

    Customer service takes nearly an hour to respond. Really slow and frequently disconnecting 3g broadband which reminds you of 33.6kbps connection. Rubbish company and absolutely rubbish service.

    Left plus eat for Vodafone as they offered a great deal and promised same service, been with Vodafone for mobile for years with great experiences. But with broadband I wish I had stayed with plus net.

    Service is unreliable, speeds are abysmal, signal strength bounces up and down at all times of day and night, customer service is useless and full of the give it a few days advice, then when it's still rubbish in a few days they say if you cancel you have to pay your remaining term.. Very poor. As soon as contract up, going back to plus net.

    I'm not usually one for writing reviews unless something really pisses me off; this is one of those cases.

    Vodafone broadband is the strangest broadband I have ever had, the internet connection is always there, the speeds are always ok (though not what was quoted) but this broadband decides what it wants to load and when it wants to do it, it will either load something in a flash or not at all, almost as if it has an opinion and just decides to deny me of what I want to load, it's like it has a mind of its own, I honestly cannot begin to comprehend how this works, like I said the internet connection is always working and the speeds are always ok, it just decides when it wants to load something and when it doesn't. Realistically the only explanation I can come up with is that the router is doing some sort of security check before loading a page and something goes wrong and it gets stuck, if I close the app and start again it will work, I'm not just talking about one app so please don't think it's a problem with the app, I'm talking about Safari, YouTube, eBay, Amazon, etc. ALL SORTS OF DIFFERENT UNRELATED APPS. IT CAN BE NOTHING BUT THE BROADBANDS FAULT. Not happy with this service in any respect but it's strange that the least of my problems is the download speeds, all other broadbands I have had it has been the speeds that have been the biggest problem. What a strange and unacceptable service Vodafone has to offer.

    SCAM! Very poor quality, it's unusable and expensive! Not only that, but even for 1-month contract you have to give them 30 days notice, so they can charge you another month for something you're not even using. Thieves!

    I have Fibre 76 and I'm happy.
    After EE services Voda feels like at heaven.
    Good Things.
    1. Voda sorted VDSL. Now I have 61 Downstream, EE fobbed me off with 51 MBps
    2. Voda guarantees Minimum speed of 58 Mbps and NO traffic management (I don't feel any)
    3. Online TV was struggling with EE, with Voda 2 TV's sets pumping live video at 1080p, no buffering.
    4. Cheapest and best value.Pay attention - NO traffic shaping (Virgin, BT and EE do have)
    5. Router seems more powerful

    Bad things

    1. Ping increased from 9ms to 15ms due Gateway at C&W. I can feel it when gaming. Some jitter present
    2. Customer services... sort of fobbing and following process. However you will need to spend time to get through, but you will. be patient.
    At last not getting lies as from EE and getting chat transcription to refer

    Was told that I needed to wait in for an engineer on a secific date. Took half a day off work as I was told they would be with me between 8am & 1pm.... did they come? NO... did they bother to call me.... NO. I phoned them at 12.30 on behalf of my husband... only to be told....we can't tell you anything. We need to speak to your husband. I said I'm his wife and I'm waiting here at the house. Can you give me an indication as to when the engineer will be here.... only to be told NO. Terrible customer service provision. Total abuse of custom. When my husband called them at half past 2. They said the work had been done..... after telling us we needed to let the engineer in.... I didn't have to take a half day off work or hang around waiting as they were never going to need access. Joke... done then vodaphone have been useless!!!! Seriously consider vodaphone... from what I hear there are hidden costs too. Just look at the other reviews... also negative! Hope this helps!

    Everything about my broadband experience with Vodafone has been terrible. I have never come across a company so incompetent and dis-interested in customer satisfaction. I signed up because they were the cheapest - I found the reasons why. I will never deal with Vodafone again as long as I live.

    I have just switched from BT to Vodafone and switch-over went exactly as Vodafone said it would go. I plugged in the Vodafone router before 8am on the switch over day, waited until midnight and the next morning it was working (after a router restart). So far, so good. I already had fibre broadband with BT so suspect some of the issues people have reported have been as a result of also changing from standard broadband to fibre.

    I am so fed up with speaking to family and friends and having to wander about the house and garden to get a reception. It has got better because we used to have to run to the bottom of the garden for good reception, sometimes in the poring rain, not good.

    My family get the hump for not being able to hear me and keep saying get a proper phone, listen up Vodafone.

    Really want a Vodafone person out so they can hear what our reception is like. I secretly hope it's raining lol.

    So fed up with complaining. I just want to be able to hear the people love.

    Listen to the little places in England please.

    We switched from BT when our 12 month Infinity 1 contract was ending. They offered us Infinity 1 again on a 2 year contract for £44 a month. We said no thanks, as that seemed expensive, and we hadn’t found their customer service all that great either.

    We signed up with Vodafone because they were offering a very competitive deal - 76Mbps for 18 months at £30 a month with no setup charges.

    Our broadband didn’t work on the switchover date so we rang Vodafone the next day. It turned out this was because BT had transferred the wrong phone number across. A very patient and helpful Vodafone engineer sorted everything out over the phone that morning.

    The speed was up and down initially but after a week or so it stabilised at a constant 76Mbps or thereabouts. broadband.co.uk's website says Vodafone broadband is unlimited not truly unlimited, but Vodafone’s online documents say traffic management doesn’t apply to fibre, and that is borne out by our experience.

    The Vodafone Connect router is fine, but we live in a large house with thick walls, and the wifi signal had been a little bit better in the room furthest away from the router using the BT Smart Hub, than it was with the Vodafone router. We asked Vodafone for our broadband username and password using online chat and were given them no problem, but then the Smart Hub wouldn’t accept them. We’ve still managed to use the Smart Hub to transmit wifi around our house however, by connecting it to the Vodafone router with a network cable, after following some very simple instructions in an online expertreviews article about using a BT Home Hub with another ISP. This resolved the issue at no cost, but the option was there to use a different router instead if we’d wanted.

    BT charged us a £66 equipment fee for cancelling their contract 4 days early, but Vodafone have said they will cover the cost of that, after their 30 day trial period expires.

    Vodafone have been excellent, and we highly recommend them.

    No hassle with USB dongle and connecting up from standard Vodafone box. Pay as you go was fine for three years.There was a monthly expiry date and so I'd buy a £15 voucher from shop and from the box would simply type-in the number and I was again connected up to the internet. Then Aug 2013 they brought in data packs, upped the price to £20 and I had to open an online account. I couldn't manage the top-up and went round in circles and always ended up having to get their help in converting my voucher to data. I then had to wait up to an hour (usually) for internet connection.I wondered why they just couldn't tell how it wa done and they kept telling me they were going to update the website. I'd visit the shop and they'd spend 15 minutes connecting up my laptop! Then they advised me to get the tech team to do it by phone. Then it was customer services who did it. Then 14 months later I was told that I couldn't do it online/account top-up myself, that I would ALWAYS have to ring up monthly for them to convert my voucher (or card payment) into my usual 3GB data. As my mobile phone wasn't with Vodafone I had to pay for this at UK rate. I was put through to Indian, African and Scottish people, all friendly and with helpful attitude but have never once got an immediate response to my call (usually all-back) or internet. This month (Nov 2014)they couldn't get me on the internet for two days! This is a long review. It's been a long time frustrated and inconvenienced and I just want you all to be warned. It's PAYG dongle works just dandy ...once you're finally connected!

    Worst ISP to date. They have made me long for dial up. Constantly dialled back speed, modem connection has been poor. Can't wait for change particularly since I'm paying for the top speed. PLEASE DON'T use them. Go back in time and use AOL dial up if you can.
