Using the money that you have saved not paying cash to amazon or M&S, its quite simple really.

You know what's also disingenuous? Choosing to say only the worst choice of voucher (PC World) to try to support the point you're making - when practically all people can use the Amazon or M&S voucher as an effective substitute for cash.

cheapest but rubbish imo

Heat added as i recently had this installed, there was a bit of delay getting the BB up and running so they gave me 50GB data for my phone so i could tether my devices. No issue's until the other day when i lost all WIFI and gave them a quick call and had to reset the router, fortunately i had backed up all the settings. I get consistant speeds so pleased with it so far and a biggie for me was a static IP address free of charge as i have a server running.
I currently have Vodafone BB. This is the worst I have ever had I, the signal strength is a joke and it cuts off most weeks. I cant wait till next month when the 18 months are up.

Rubbish how? In terms of support? Because the network is more or less the same no matter what provider you're with...
I dont know about ZebBEDY but I find the support is awful and I think the router is the route of all evil

Ok forget M&S, just about everyone uses Amazon. £75 Amazon voucher is pretty much good as a genuine cash discount.

Have to wholeheartedly agree, cheap for a reason. Useless router that cuts out all the time. Replaced with an alternative but speeds after 6pm are hopeless. Constant buffering. We hotspot our EE mobile @ 120mb/s as Voda can't even give us 3mb/s after 6. Awful Egyptian contact centres that can't help and read from a script. Only way to get them to take notice is contact them via snail mail to UK complaints dept.
Might be better off taking the Three unlimited mobile broadband deal for £20 a month less £75 TCB

Not for me it wasn't . Switched from BT thinking exactly that but got a nasty shock to realise that connection dropouts every 90 seconds for hours on end on a regular basis appeared to be the norm (usually peak hours funnily enough). Complained several times but the problem was never rectified.
Ended up back with BT around November of last year and not had a single connection dropout since. So much for 'the same network' with regards to expecting a similar kind of connection. Couldn't be further from the truth in my case.
Others may be luckier , please don't say that you haven't been warned though.

Hate to say this but I switched away from Vodafone with over 6 months left on my contract as BT has an offer whereby they will cover your outstanding contract balance (for the monthly remaining services only) from another provider upto so much £, can't remember exactly how much it is. Anyway it has been just over 4 months now since leaving Vodafone and no charges were even applied to my account for leaving early.

This wasn't as easy as it sounds, only certain routers were compatible and then there was an issue with having to contact Vodafone for some kind of unlock coding or something to get them to work if I remember correctly - Vodafone were notoriously difficult to get help from with regards to this, I recall checking loads of forums at the time to try and resolve the issues myself . I had a BT router sat in my cupboard and I know that wouldn't have worked as something had been disabled and Vodafone were unwilling to help. At one stage I asked desperately if I could change my router and buy one myself , at my own cost to try and rectify the situation but just ended up hitting a brick wall , "we can send you a replacement router if yours is not working correctly but first we will need to do some checks …. bla bla" It was the same script no matter who I spoke too. Unbearably frustrating , god help anyone who needs to contact their customer service line.

Vodafone has been fine for me, However I use my own router. The supplied router is pants and you'll be lucky to get anything close to your sync speed via WiFi etc. I also believe in some areas their network is too congested hence reduction in speed for some people and not others. Mine is a steady 56mb whatever time of day it is.

It's good to hear your experience and that of others. I was tempted to go with them at one point and you have swayed me. Currently with Sky and it's OK.

I would have been overjoyed to get stable low sync speeds of any speed via wifi at the time , my connection was hard wired so doubt the router itself was even at fault. the constant dropouts were ridiculous and the replacement Vodafone router changed nothing for me , still unusable connection due to the amount of dropouts. Maybe the congestion in my area was the problem but incompetence is the first word that springs to my mind when Vodafone customer service is mentioned.

I'm sure there are others that are ok with it (the lucky ones) , the first 3 months was totally fine too, after this though things drastically changed. When you rely on having use of the internet , to go several hours every day with no stable connection meant it was totally unusable for us.
These BB Companies should have a universal system which automatically detects constant connection dropouts, slow speeds etc and allow you out of the contract without penalty. I doubt we would ever see such a system … shame really.
mine cuts out all the time, router flashing red ..... vodafone said its within normal limits to cut out 7 times a day lol

had engineer round twice, installed new socket and cabling and alsoa replaceent router but didnt make a shred of difference

Avoid, avoid, avoid. Massive congestion or throtttling issues which started last Nov. Read the huge threads in the Vodafone forums at the Voda www which the still haven’t resolved. Look at the latest Thinkbroadband speed report. You’re sync speed will be fine however single thread speed will be dire - which cripples video streaming eg Netflix. I jumped ship back to BT due to their issues. Buyer beware

Exactly the same happened to me , engineer visit tested all equipment in the home and said they could not find a fault. Same issue router drop outs , flashing red constantly as it reboots . New router didn't make a difference for me either. The very same socket is now being used for constant 56mb connection from BT , not a single dropout since November last year.

Ee will buy out your contact if it's £50 or less to ditch early
We joined Vodafone BB after leaving Sky due to continuous problems with service. Not finding Bodafone great either, who do people recommend as the best provider for fibre optic, please
Very happy on Vodafone broadband, but I live in the sticks close to the exchange so I get 74/18 Mbps all the time. I replaced their router with my own VDSL modem and Linksys Velop mesh WiFi routers. I had no trouble getting the login details from Support.
Works fine and is reliable as I work from home and use it constantly all day. Also have never had any trouble with Netflix or Amazon Prime video. Phone service seems a bit broken at the mo as it rings once and cuts off but the caller just hears it ringing with no answer. As it's only my parents who call on the landline, I'm really not bovvered

I'm happy with mine too. My nephew joined but they are giving mixed reviews.
Manure, only 4mnths left with these donkeys, nvr evr again.
I'm with Vodafone. Just did a speed test and am currently getting 36mbps. Happy.

Also, my contract expires soon so I'm thinking of getting this deal again. £50 Quidco in it too.
AVOID. The router is an absolute joke. The call centre is a nightmare run on a script and whatever problem you've got, guess what, it's not in the script. Constant connection problems on most of my devices. At times the streaming services have super unreliable with constant buffering. I would not reccomend this sh1t to anyone!
For those of you that are saying your speedtest results are fine, run a speedtest at thinkbroadband and check your single thread speed. It was my single thread speed that was shocking - and I’m not alone. Read the threads on the Vodafone forum. Buyer beware
Be warned Vodafone credit check all Broadband customers...

So if your credit fileis not great, might not get the service and adds a mark on your credit file.

While I am fully aware my credit file is not perfect, it has no major marks against it, so I was surprised to be declined by them. Never had issues with Sky, TalkTalk, BT or Now TV Broadband, so bit peeved by this, but guess companies can pick and choose who they have as customers.
Just done a speed test, I got 42.75mb, I should be on their faster broadband package. My contract with them expires on 22nd March 2019, is it too early for me to switch? I currently pay £30 a month, worth paying the extra £10 and going with BT?

This has got me worried as I've just put in a switch to Vodafone from BT as BT kept messing me around with prices. Vodafone day they have a minimum speed guarantee, of like 50mb from box to router so I'm not sure how they could get away with it being so bad...

You should be, Vodafone do have a min speed guarantee. Speed wasn't the issue. You need to be getting stable internet to provide a stable connection, otherwise its totally unusable. Hours of your day offline , if this is what you want go with Vodafone. You have been warned.
Hate to say it but BT connection is rock solid , as was Virgin when we had that several years ago. Vodafone made me realise that no matter what the pricing structure is , don't be fooled ! If you value your connection and want reliability , stay well clear !
