    From the day I got broadband with Vodafone the service signal and reliability has been terrible. I have stuck with it for several months and finally decided to switch. After several calls they are still insisting on charging me an early cancellation charge which I find completely unbelievable. Such shockingly bad customer service it's unreal. What ever you do don't use vodafone!!!

    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.

    dreadful broadband and customer service atrocious! changed to Vodapnone on 3rd February due to increasing costs by BT. spent next fortnight on the phone to technical department and called into store twice to try and get a broadband and mobile phone to work, broadband speeds were o.7 upload and 0.4 for download! told it was because router had to be plugged into main phone socket, all equipment ie printer, laptops, tablet, NOW TV box had to be hard wired to router. ended up with nothing working through WIFI and mobile phone permanently locked. absolute disaster contract cancelled within fortnight and back to BT.

    Most people here are complaining about about substandard broadband from Vodafone. I could even get connected to find out myself but if my experience is anything to go by I have not reason to doubt it would have been just as bad. I had my first order cancelled via text message with no reason give, I called and was told it was a system error. Vodafone then put another order through for me. This was after two weeks. Another two weeks went by and I received a message my router was being delivered today only to get another text message saying my order had been cancelled as there was no room in the exchange. So a fully wasted four weeks. I think the real reason why it was cancelled is that the £20 offer has proven so massively popular that they can't cope/are losing money. Also I went through a cash back site and I think they realized this and also decided to cancel. A more shoddy company I have not come across in many years. I will definitely avoid in the future and advise others to do so.

    Where do I start? I ordered broadband with them on the 1st of September. On this date, I was told that I was booked in with an engineer for the 18th. So I travelled to nottingham for that date, having to take time off specifically for this. Then on the morning of the 18th, i'm sent an email telling me to 'get ready for my installation on the 21st'. After waiting hours on hold, i'm told to wait until 8 for the engineer, which I knew wasn't going to happen. So on the 21st, when I'm not in the county, I get a call telling me that the bt open zone guy is outside. Once I tell Vodafone about this problem, they were quick to give me 50gb free if I was with Vodafone mobile (which I'm glad i'm not), or add 'credit to my account', which costs them nowhere near as much as it costs me to travel on short notice and take days off work to be stood up. After calming down and agreeing to have an engineer come on the 12th of October (21 days notice), an engineer shows up on the 10th. Which was incredibly inconvenient, because it made me late for work, waiting for this guy to do absolutely nothing as it turns out. Then I called to find out why this was the case, and was told that 'engineers come whenever they're free and around your area'. Now, even a child can point out why this would be an infinitely bad idea, especially since if you're unavailable for your surprise visit, you're charged a missed appointment fee. But that aside, the broadband still wasn't working after installation, I once again called Vodafone (18th time by this point), and was told that it wouldn't go live until the 12th. Which I thought was fair. The 12th finally came, and the broadband still wasn't working, so when I called (19th time), I was told that 'the broadband order on my account was cancelled', and that apparently 'this is a rare situation that never happens, but they're going to try to fast track my activation date'. After hearing this nonsense, I was contacted later in the day to be given a status update saying 'btw, nothing has happened yet'. Probably the least informative update to ever have to endure. I called back later that day to be told that I had an engineer visit on the 23rd of October, which I never booked and had no idea about. I still wouldn't have known this date unless I had called them, and it's lucky I did. I was told that the openzone man had not installed the line properly, and I need another appointment on a date I never agreed upon. I had decided to cancel my account with them, and they literally encouraged me to leave. No retentions, no explanation, just 'shop around and we'll be happy to cancel your contract free of charge since you're within your first 30 days'. What's interesting about this, is that if I had waited until the 23rd, and nothing had happened, I'd have been outside of my 30 days, and would've been expected to pay a cancellation fee, which felt almost like a plot to trap me within their horrible service. Not once did I feel like they were listening to my struggle, and till this day, I still haven't received my cancellation email. It's almost as if they're trying to be sleazy with their services to suck money out of you. I now get nothing from their lack of competence, but wasted time and money, while these guys laugh all the way to the bank with for their lack of half decent customer support. I still have no internet thanks to these clowns. I call them clowns because their service is absolutely laughable. I honestly wish I could review less than one star, because I think even that would be too generous.

    Absolutely shocking!
    Broken promise after broken promise.
    After 2 months they still couldn't provide me with broadband. Every date was missed, everytime they said someone would call they didn't. Cancelled, they said you will get a full refund, another promise broken - still waiting. When you call they are apologetic and polite, however, that doesn't help resolve the problem.
    I was suckered in by the advert of no line rental. Don't be a fool - avoid this company, they really don't care.
    They are unable to provide the service, promise everything and deliver absolutely nothing!
    Avoid, Avoid, Avoid.
    Don't say i didn't warn you!

    Disgusted. It takes about a week after the rooter is installed for broadband to activate, and the engineer is a subcontractor so he had no idea this was the case. With BT, the internet is activated as soon as the rooter is installed, so I can't understand why Vodafone requires a week for the activation. Had to cancel it as I need internet connection for my work, and was told it takes a further week for the engineer to switch back my internet connection. Was not told all of this when I signed up.

    Awful- don't bother

    Intermittent connection at best and virtually non-existent at times.
    Home working made ultra difficult by a company who don't really care about coverage.
    Sell you something with 5g capability knowing you're unlikely to get 4g at best.
    Customer service unhelpful and you're left paying a premium for a service which rarely delivers.
    Bring on a permanent base so I can get home broadband

    DISASTER, TERRIBLE. Sent faulty dongle, spent 11 months trying to get it working by visiting lots of vodafone shops and calling them. Turned out they'd sent me a prototype which wasnt for public use, and now they wont refund me £378.40 for something I didnt use. SHAMEFUL VODAFONE

    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

    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.

    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.

    I bought my son a dongle a month ago - 10gb and 10gb free for £20.00 pound (a 30 day contract). was told he could bever use 20gb in a month YET we were not told to have it switched off all the time when at home or charging the dongle... three weeks later we get a phone bill £245.50!!!!!!!!
    Apparently it updates and downloads each evening automatically and used up 39gb data and now i am stuck with the bill.

    I am unemploeyd, single mum and do you think Customer Services would help ??????? NO
    I am totally fed up and upon asking to close it i was told to pay for yet another 30 days.
    Sick and tired of them and there lack of care and not informing their customers upfront

    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

    genuinely shockingly bad. A broadband service that doesnt like xonnecting to phones... the company.. a mobile phone provide. HOW STUPID IS THAT? internet is so unreliable i use more of my data than my broadband. Intermittent function. For work - forget it. I need VPN secure access.. i have had no trouble with sky (notoriously rubbish for most things) and yet Vodaphone.. oh its not them but i should plug my work laptop directly into the router and see if that helps.. welll NOPE still kicks me off every 5 minutes AND cuts out so often i cant connect to my work servers to save my work. Dont use if youre more mobile orientated...absolutely shoddiest service ive had. Vodaphones response.. not their fault!!!
    id rather try and make a cup of tea with a chocolate teapot...

    Vodafone deserve their place at the bottom , the customer service experience is truly awful with incorrect information given out on a regular basis, long waiting times and promises of return calls never materializing. Rudeness is common place with the front line staff poorly trained and be prepared to ride the merry go round of being passed from one department to another as no one has the ability to deal with straight forward problems.If they hope to be on a level with the likes of First Direct for customer service then their only chance would be a complete overhaul from the top down...even then I find it unlikely that a leopard such as Vodafone will ever change its spots.

    I wish I had read these reviews before I left sky BB.
    I signed up with sky purely on cost. £20 a month for Fibre to cabinet is a brilliant price. However this is where my love for Vodafone broadband ends.
    My download speed is quoted as 32mb/s and upload of 8mb/s but thats into the Router. This speed never makes it out to any devices. Constant dropped connections No IPV6 for xbox (be warned this slows it down no end. Vodafone are also traffic shaping horendousley I think this is why its so cheap.
    Be warned if you are like me with a wife and 2 kids with probably 20 things connected to the internet Vodafone is not for you.

    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.

    Hi Everyone
    Not really broadband but will put this up wherever I can as a warning.
    Apologies but I've never complained about a company in this way. I feel that as a 15 year customer of Vodafone my experience over the last years is horrendous.

    Quick summary
    New phone taken out
    2 weeks and several visits to shop
    Eventually working but several of my contacts could only text and not call me
    This got worse over recent months
    Been asking for help for many days
    Office in Alexandria have lied not called back on numerous occasions. In fact never called back. 2 mangers on the same day swearing that they would never let me down. Can't estimate the number of hours spend on my landline. Still no resolution and stuck without a phone.

    Complete havoc and Vodafone employees are actively moving me about because they can't or won't deal with it

    Its been 1 year....Any advice......I'm sure Vodafone wouldn't have been so gracious if I has withheld payment since I received my phone!

    Feel sorry to have to leave such an awful review

    Ps... I have all the managers names but this seems hopeless as well. Their colleagues just refuse to put you through!

    I have been with bt and virgin before for many years and never had to call them for any broadband issues ever. With vodafone broadband it seems like dealong with some dodgy company setup only recently. Broadband connection keeps dropping and now the first month bill is like some random amouny which was more than twice the actual contract. I was kept online unnecessarily long without much explanation. One can hear laughter in the background not very professional at all. The agent just reduced the bill and it seems a common occurrence and from them if you call or pay if you don't notice. I signed up because it was cheap and now I can't wait for the contract to come to an end. It is the fastest package and i am in very good location for the fasteat but still it seems very poor connection odd times. Stay away from them

    I wish I had the reviews on this page before purchasing.
    I purchased the 50Gb deal for £30 per month for my children to use. After checking my bank account they have charged me £192.50 because unbeknown to me you have to ask for your allowance to be capped. we have allegedly used an additional 50gb and been charged accordingly. what a rip off and to add insult to injury I've just spent the last hour trying to Cancel.
    coverage has been crap as well.

    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.

    Piss poor excuse for a broadband... Got it to be able to work from home as couldn't use hot-spot... Worst excuse ever. Sold me the lie of coverage everywhere. First 2 months were decent. Since then I've struggled to get passed 2mb download speeds average. And my phone is averaging 60-70mbs.

    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.

    Revolting, not only do they sell you a product that dosnt work when they claim it does the customer service is disgusting. We’ve not had one week we’re the internet has worked to a standard we were told. It cuts out, drops out every bloody day and you have to reconnect. When you ask for help you don’t get it!

    Don’t go with these guys they rob you of money, give you false information. Go elsewhere save yourself the stress!

    Having placed two orders with Vodafone for their broadband service. 1st time I was with sky waiting for my contract to end at the end of the month was promised by Vodafone there would not be any service cut transferring from sky. 2nd order as they said they cannot take over a sky line during contract. I am on my 3rd order and they keep telling me that there is open orders on the line. Shocking customer service having to hold upto 45 mins to get through to the relevant department. Never had any follow up calls to advise me they were having issues with the lines instead sent me 2 routers and gave me 2 different live dates. Appalling customer service accusing me of lieing as they have not record of my conversation with their teams even though the same day I had spoken to Web chat. Do not recommend them at all. I am no longer with any provider for my broadband and Vodafone has still failed to take over my line. I don't even have any provider to contact us sky as said I am not longer a customer so they don't have access to my details. Can anyone advise anything? Apparently Vodafone are saying there are open orders on the line hence why they cannot take over. Even though sky's contract has been paid in full and my account was closed on the 29th of January.

    POOR SERVICE, POOR COMPANY, THEY WILL NOT LET YOU LEAVE!!

    I and my family have been long standing (20+ years) loyal customers of Vodafone and finally, we are leaving.

    Reasons:

    1. When you are interested in buying a service, Vodafone are great to deal with, they suddenly become your best friends. BUT when you actually do need any help Vodafone is possibly the worst people to deal with. They will not solve your problems, but actually take your time up and then you will find random text messages which you then have to recall Vodafone about to waste more time trying to rectify because you are scared that they have charged you for something.

    2. Coverage is poor and POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. In certain areas there is not a problem, but in my house (i live in the City) the coverage is non-existent and i have to go outside to make a call. So I called Vodafone (again remember i have been with the company for a very long time) and asked if they can send me a signal booster box as i do not get any reception. They said it would be chargeable and it would be cheaper for me to source one from a non-Vodafone shop. They don't really care as whatever happens I still have to pay my contract.

    3. HIDDEN CHARGES and INABILITY TO LEAVE! --> One of the family mobile contracts had recently come to an end so I requested the PAC code (which they tried so hard not to give) and transferred the number over to Virgin mobiles. Vodafone agreed to unlock the handset as the contract had ended. However they didn't do this properly and the Virgin Mobile was unable to be registered with the handset. Finally after around 20 phonecalls and 3 weeks without a mobile phone, Vodafone managed to sort it. All was going well with Virgin Mobile, when suddenly we all started receiving texts from Vodafone saying:
    - "you have turned off content control. If you change your mind log-in to vodafone and update yor settings"
    AND
    - "you have removed the spending limit for using the internet abroad. To limit your spend again, text CAP to 40209 or log-onto Vodafone and change your settings"

    I can tell you that no one had made any changes to any of these settings, Vodafone has made changes and have accused us of these changes.

    The worst part is, that now, myself and the rest of my family are unable to phone the number which has now been registered with Virgin Mobile AND the familiy member can't make a phone call out from her Virgin Mobile either! So not only has Vodafone messed around with our current Vodafone contracts, but has interfered with a number that has already left Vodafone and has nothing to do with Vodafone anymore.

    I contacted Vodafone, they said it should get working in around 1 week!! No apologies, no care, they said that this can happen when you move your number from Vodafone to another provider.

    It is an absolute disgrace. Vodafone took 3 weeks to unlock the phone so that we ca transfer over to Virgin. And now Vodafone have interfered and that Virgin Mobile has been affected where no calls can be received or made.

    So i have decided to finally move my family away from Vodafone's awful service and disgusting customer service.

    Where to go?
    Virgin Mobile seems to be pretty good, EE seems the biggest, O2 are still kicking... 3 probably has the best customer service who are always polite and who do their best to help, but not too sure about their coverage. BUT whatever you do and wherever you go, don't bother with Vodafone.

    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.
