76 Mbps Fibre Double Cashback Vodafone

82
Found 1st Dec
Normal cost is £30/month but there are 3 discounts to apply.
This also works on the cheaper fibre option at £20.98 per month for 38Mbps.

I just took out this deal. First go to Topcashback and get £6.30 cashback on a free Pay as You Go sim, next go back in to Topcashback and take £21 cashback on Fibre broadband. Contact the helpdesk and tell them you just took out a sim and want to link to a new broadband account to get the existing customer discount (£3/month)

Give them your order number so they can link your account.
After you order you need to activate the sim card and contact them again to get the discount applied.

Wouldn’t bother. I bought this a couple of weeks ago and have loads of problems with Vodafone. My switch doesn’t work because I am only allowed 4 “live” iP addresses, so switches aren’t allowed. I have quite a few sites I am no longer allowed to visit. The Xbox does not work on live chat anymore - it worked yesterday...Spoke to Customer Services who just lied, or gave false info on my problems.
When I want to use the internet I have to unplug something, and plug in what I want to use!
I am now going back to BT which didn’t restrict my household so much.

Went from BT infinity 1 to vodafone and then back again.

It might be cheap but it's not worth it imo

The router is bad and pages don't load as fast.

I do and have no problems. Infact my internet is the second best out of the group of friends I play with (Virgin being first) I was on sky fibre before and that couldn't even handle 3 devices! Then again, every ISP is better than eachother in certain locations

I don't think you need to top-up; will find out next week. Contract is 18 months.

I got Vodafone broadband back in July when they did a increased cashback offer. Vodafone rejected my claim saying I'd cancelled my broadband. I showed them my bills to prove I was still paying for it. Vodafone are yet to honour that cashback agreement.

you chose vodaphoney so dont come moaning with issues, you should expect issues with them, its all over the net how bad they are, but you still choose them, your fault, get over it. do your research and dont be so cheap, theres a reason why so cheap, take your moanaing elsewhere, you get what you pay for.!!!

No please no. Never ever. 3 months in the contract with 3 months of daily problems. Promised min 40mbps and my max was 20. They had to downgrade me( I was probably the first cause apparently you're not allowed). Then even with the crap speeds I received a letter saying that my contract is going up. Why Vodafone? Only after 3 months you want more? Worse internet I ever witness. I had better speed from talk talk cheap 4mbps broadband. At least it was moving faster if I wasn't downloading.

been paying 28.99 for bt had sky before and wasnt impressed. Had a letter today from bt saying my deal will end and they are increasing prices by 2.50 so my new monthyl bill will be 49.00 so came on here to find another BB deal.

Vodafone do a man in the middle attack on all your secure connections which screws up the security certificates hence certain sites not workong. If you change the DNS server ON THE ROUTER to google's or similar and it will fix it.

I'm the same. I had £29.99 52Mbps with £100 cashback with BT. Got the increase notification today and all they could offer was an upgrade to 76Mbps.

I went on online chat earlier this week regarding getting a PAYG SIM for the discount, and they said that it only applies to pay monthly subscribers.

Agree. No problems here. also on voda, and lets see how many network devices I have ...

26.

No switch ? er.... ok. That's total BS. Also, your ISP gives you one IP. Then it's NATed and you can have pretty much as many IPs as you want behind it.

The voda modem / router is rubbish but show me one ISP modem that isn't.

Their broadband for me is fine. Getting 74mbits all the time, any day and even thepiratebay.org works as they weren't one of the ISPs ordered to shut down access to such sites.

Went from Sky to Vodafone several weeks ago - 76 Mbps Fibre for £24/month + Quidco £30 cashback.
some websites were blocked (torrents) so changed Content control profile on vodafone.co.uk
Router is better then one from Sky (had no reception on balcony and some devices in the kitchen with Sky). Have 12 devices connected over Wi-Fi and 3 on cable. Had no problems with connection or speed.
If you have several or more networks in your area you should change channel for 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi (5 GHz Wi-Fi channels are farther apart and won’t interfere with each other as much).
Vodafone Broadband app for android is helpful.

Total BS. Besides the fact you can't do this without being noticed... yeah it's BS.
Also on voda. And i'm a *qualified* network engineer. As in Cisco/Brocade/F5/Palo Alto not I can connect an ethernet cable therefore I'm a network engineer.
Edited by: "daskapital" 1st Dec

I can understand people going £15 broadband because it sometimes works. But if you are paying £30 then you should expect industrial grade internet.

For a tiny bit more I get a block /9 (8 IP - 5 usable), rock solid 70mbps from the same exchange BTInternet users are getting much less (how?) and a support desk who are smarter than me. Check out the ISP ratings. Zen is there at the top every year. Where are Vodafone?

I would say if you really want premium broadband then there are only two UK suppliers. Zen & AAISP. Otherwise you are into the discount market. So Voda at £20 discounted is no match in product terms. Not being able to afford £30 is the only excuse to compromise yourself.

You mean ISPs aren't required by the UK government to monitor user activity and intercepting https connections wouldnt screw up the secure connection resulting in a certificate error which is then fixed by not using Vodafone's DNS sever?

/9 ?

Why are there so many armchair network engineers in this thread ?
Do you even know what CIDR is ? /9 is over 8.3 millionIPs LOL. and literally why would any home user need that many IPs.

And you have to justify them to RIPE and you have to pay an admin fee....

Literally nobody at home needs "industrial internet" whatever that is.

AAISP lol... yeah if you enjoy being capped and paying through the nose it's a great ISP.

Do you think swapping your DNS server will stop them knowing what sites you visit ? LMAO.

Zen is £43.99. I've been with Sky and BT and always got constant speeds of 50-60Mbps and 18Mbps UP. What do they do to justify double the price? I imagine speed is the same.

Well i look forward to your explanation as to why changing DNS avoids the certificate errors.

I went with Vodafone last year & cancelled BT only to get voice message from Vodafone 4 days later saying no room in local street cabinet so had to go cap in hand back to BT. Thanks for nothing Vodafone.

I pay Zen about £34 per month inc vat. I get much higher speeds and 100% reliability on the same exchange as all other non-Zen users report getting much less. That (and the 5 usable IPs and intelligent support) is why I stay with them. Give me a better deal and I'll be there.

Do you really thinks this is it?

And I look forward to you explaining how Vodafone are the only ISP in the world capable of "intercepting" SSL traffic.

I could explain the DNS issue but since you haven't got a clue about how the internet actually works.... What's the point.

Tell you what... Find a network forum and post that stuff there and see what they say..

Sorry mistype. It should have been /29 as if it wasn't blindingly evident in context. Am I forgiven? - or were you trying to make a cheap point?
Still looking for a better deal. Do you have one?
Edited by: "brainsys" 2nd Dec

Ladies, handbags down.

Am on Voda. Whatever they do. Definitely messes some websites up like IMGUR. Something related to certificates. The answer is to switch DNS servers. E.g. to Google 8.8.8.8 which overcomes this. I never had this issue before but as soon as I moved to Vodafone, it started happening. It's also pointed out on their forums with no other workaround but this.

thx, how much time they need to switch over after the order.
Edited by: "Palwan" 2nd Dec

I switched from Sky Fibre Max to this due to price. Sky was 80mb, Vodafone is 65mb, which is fine for my use although don't quite understand the drop in speed. The stability is better than sky though and also get a better signal around the house. The app you can download is useful. Bargain for £24 pm Inc line rental when Sky wanted £45.

I have had Vodafone for 18 months and its been fantastic. I must have over 12 devices connected at once most days and it all works perfectly. The app you download to let you manage your network is easy and I never had this with anyone else. £20 for unlimited fibre no line rental is the best price around.

I have vodafone bb and its actually good. The hub isnt great but i piggy backed the bt homehub onto it and its a lot better.

Sounds like user error more than Vodafones fault.
Change your DNS to 8.8.8.8 and stop moaning about the websites you can't visit.

I have had Vodafone fibre for just over a year and I’m very pleased with it. I got awful dropout problems with BT, they did try fixing it with router swap outs and a service visit, but to no avail. As one of the earlier posts said, a lot of the routers are low quality, and I could get better service from a known brand router, but I don’t really need to for the small additional benefits I would gain. I agree with the comments regarding the Vodafone app too, I have found it very useful too. I hope this helps someone in their decision making process.

You can get 100 meg from Virgin for less than £30.plus vodafone has awful customer service.cold from me
