    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.

    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.

    Hey if you're reading this you're probably looking into replacing your broadband with 5G? If so all I can advise is don't, especially with vodafone. Now I was shocked to see how high the rating was but look a little deeper and all the positive reviews look fake. The speed is piss poor, it drops out contstantly and you're looking at an hour each time to speak to customer support. Want to cancel after you've already signed up (and they've lied continuously about how its going to improve next week), forget it because they state they will charge you the remaining balance on the contract. It's an absolute joke and honestly if just one person reads this and decides against it I'll consider that a success.

    Vodafone, you're an absolute embarassment and I will never use another one of your services

    im sick and tired of spending massive amounts ov bills every month with Vodafone for lies and not being happy stuck in a contract! all for crap internet speeds! and poor customer service that seem to be helping you'' but are very quick to transfer you and only to find out they have lied to you and nothing has changed! i took out a contract with them and told i would reach up-to 130mbps to then after days go by getting between 4-8mbps and told that im only getting up-to 10mbps by customer service in derby and if im not happy i can leave! im shocked how im treated! and not only that when you ring your spoken to by an automated system that puts the phone down on you constantly because it doesn't understand you! and tells you to speak on line chat that id be welcomed by customer service, only to find out its automated again!! !! so every-time i call them iv to tell the automated system iv leaving Vodafone!! my internet with them is shocking" im now getting under 1mbps up-to 1 and a half!! i cant even watch Netflix!! why sell my unlimited mobile internet with promises of massive speeds and no caps in the evenings to be getting such horrific slow speeds!! this is 2022 and im getting closer to dial-up speeds!! this is a multi billion company and it cant keep to promises to its customers!! im so angry!! im going to go to EE

    1. It was far from easy to set up, im quite tech savvy but even still had to search youtube/google to find out how to set it up.
    2. I was told I would get 27-30mbs download speed, ended up with about 2-3mbs.
    Ive now taken it back to Vodafone and now very happy i dont have to worry about it. Never again.

    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

    Please avoid. Every single time I've added credit the data pack either hasn't aligned with my account so I can't use it, or it works nicely and then automatically disconnects from my account daily. I swear I can't use it for 1 day without it disconnecting from my account. Then I have to go on live chat for over an hour to be told a "glitch" occurred. Its clearly all nonsense. Pay as you go wifi is useless and customer service is appalling.

    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!

    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

    Hmm, notice I posted on 21 April! I don't normally do reviews, but Vodafone mobile broadband has deteriated. 10 minutes to open an email, if I can obtain a connection. I no longer find it a useable service, it's possible another area of the country may be ok. It's dire, rather like my mobile phone in 1993

    Sorry Vodafone. The actual mobile connection here is pretty good, but the mobile broadband is shocking! Generally it varies between 0.5Mb and 3Mb and often drops out all together. Let's face it, that's pathetic. And what on earth could the excuse be? We can see the telephone mast right at the bottom of the valley! If you wasn't the only provider in this area I would have cancelled this contract long ago.

    Complete disaster. Coverage is spotty and inconsistent. Doing well if we get 100-300 Kbps. For €60 a month you'd expect a bit more. Usually now we just tether off our tesco mobile which is much better. What really irritates me is that it's completely impossible to speak to a rep or anyone at Vodafone about it. For that kind of money you'd at least expect to be able to express your frustration. But they'd rather everyone just left their poor reviews here I guess.

    I needed a data roaming option that covered me in Singapore, Australia and the USA for 2 months. After researching the best options and then going into my local Vodafone store for advice, the Mifi mobile hot-spot device and Global Roaming Plus 5 GB of data sim card seemed like the best choice.

    However, I only successfully got the device to work once during the 2 months I was away. The signal light was constantly on red and it always said there was no network on my device even when in city centres. Only once did the light go green and connect to a local network, even then I couldn’t get any internet to work on my phone. I only used 89 MB out of the 15 GB I paid for. In the 3 different continents and numerous places I tried to use it I couldn’t even get close to a useable connection.

    Overall this cost me over £110 (including the cost of the device which I will clearly never use again given the lack of signal). I am aware that is the cost of the contract which I signed up but for this price I gained no service. I managed to send one email to a hotel about my stay! Every-time I had no wifi and needed directions, train timetables, use of google maps etc (this is what I had bought the Mifi for!) I had to use mobile data on my phone instead (not with Vodafone) and that cost me a fortune - which was exactly what I was trying to avoid in the first place.

    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!

    It is the worst customer service I have ever received for anything. They lie, break consumer law, keep you on hold endlessly and have no clue how to resolve the problem. I paid an upfront fee and 3 weeks in have never had mobile broadband . They have no accountability. Do not consider using vodafone

    I signed up for 30GB/month data only , 1 year contract for mobile broadband with Vodafone . This was to use mainly abroad at our holiday home in continental Europe plus on other holidays. Unfortunately I soon realized that I was getting less than the half of the data amount I was paying for. I understand that all other operators (O2, Three etc) clearly state that you can only use a proportion of you data allowance in EU mainland... Vodafone kept saying that they were allowing me to use whole 30GB abroad which was not true . The data were disappearing from my monthly allowance even if we were not switching the mifi device on... Anyway I kept paying for this substandard service for the whole year and stopped my DD as soon as the contract expired. Called them 2 weeks later and was told tha they will still charge me for the whole month after the contact finished as I was supposed to give them 30 days notice. Their T&C clearly state that you can cancel the contract " without termination fee if the service is poor for unreasonable amount of time " Well, the service was "poor" for the whole year... and the contract has ended up already but they still want more money!. STAY AWAY

    I've had no end of problems, promises that engineers would come out, but the service doesn't improve, ridiculously long call wait timed. I've now had zero broadband for 36 hrs and have been waiting on the phone to speak to someone for 30 mins. Customer service staff are always polite & helpful, but the problem is the infrastructure. It's costing me money in call minutes and data to my mobild provider, I am extremely unhappy, I would not use Vodafone for ANYTHING ever again.

    No Internet service for 5 weeks. Waited in on 5*separate occasions for a promised Open Reach engineer visit - 'no show'. Watch this space. So many phone calls, listening to the same old 'yes, this is totally unacceptable, sir' Frankly, I'm lost. I could throw 'I'm a pensioner into the mix!

    Replaced TalkTalk with Vodafone for cost reasons - Vodafone cheaper.Do not make the same mistake! After only 2 weeks of this, frankly unacceptable quality service I shall be terminating the contract the Vodafone (possible in first 30 days).
    Never having thought about speeds etc, before because everything worked fine with TalkTalk, it became immediately apparent that the Vodafone Wifi is hopelessly inadequate. Very variable service with varying speeds and drop out the norm. Smart TV - should I really wait 2 minutes for a connection to Netflix? Too much bufferring. Customer services polite and tried to be helpful but have not fixed the issue.

    Guaranteed speed is nonsense. And there is no mechanism to claim the guaranteed 15% discount for not meeting expected speeds.
    Switched from EE home broadband to Vodafone home broadband. Access to the usual sites Netflix, amazon, Facebook, YouTube all were terribly slow. Support is impossible to get a hold of. The chat online just sits on "loading". From a Vodafone home phone they charge for calling support and never answer.
    As we have Vodafone 4g on mobile we switched to chewing up mobile data. Yes the mobile data rates were faster and more reliable than home broadband.
    They had actually limited the home speed to 15mb but guaranteed 25mb.
    Went through months (yes months) of support. Changed wifi channels (irrelevant). Changes to the google DNS again irrelevant. They promised to send an engineer out to remove the limit within 48hrs. 2wks later still waiting for the engineer and the line limit to be lifted.
    Did I mention there is no way to claim for the 15% discount. It is not in any Vodafone App and the techinical support state they can't authorise discounts.
    And the support has more rigorous security than any banking app I have used. If I contact via the app then they should have the account details. And if they are going to reset the router then they should call the house phone. Complete incompetence.

    Avoid like the plague, no where near the speed advertised. hours of wasted time on the support chat and over an hour on hold on the phone support. Engineer visit scheduled but no one showed. got told they had missed me but I work from home and hadn't left the house at all that day.

    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!

    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
