This one is kind of a cheat, and I don't think people will appreciate what a low speed cap that is, certainly if they're throwing 5G into the name. It would allow put you around average-quality Youtube video, max.

And claiming unlimited data when your speed is artificially capped, I hope they have a welcome mat for OFCOM.

Only 10 Mpbs speed:( Red entertainment usually has 70+ roaming countries, this one has only 48. Strange limitations.
There is a sim only, unlimited everything, no cap on speed, for £30/month with £192 cashback... So this one is a bit cold.

Only plus that you have entertainment add-on for £2 per month.

Now you need to get the unlimited max with entertainment if you want everything.
Or if you don't need unlimited data I believe they do some other tariffs that include everything.

Yes I agree with others, how they can be allowed to say it's 5g when the speed is capped to such a low speed should not be allowed. Definitely trying it on
Seems stupid on an epic scale to do a 5g deal and then speed cap it to just 10Mbps....
Right to be fair the deal itself is for a small subset OK. £16 a month for the duration of the contract plus throwing in a free streaming service to bring the cost down to essentially £6 a month (in Spotify's case). In terms of speed then you are actually getting enough for Netflix and Amazon Prime in HD. (Netflix recommend 5Mbps for HD playback.)

What bothers most of us is the term 5g in this, when for all intents and purposes you are actually being limited to just a fraction over 3g in fact! (OpenSignal 2018 report gives EE's 3g average is 8Mbps for example.)

Anecdotally my Three unlimited plan gives out 67Mbps and my EE 30GB contract gives 139Mbps in comparison, both 4g. As for the Vodafone 5g "unlimited lite" package on their site, that should be criminal at that price and speed. (£23 a month and limited to 2Mbps!)

If you have the deal posted above then you should be getting "up to 10Mbps."

Its only if you are taking their "Unlimited Lite" package instead then that is up to 2Mbps.

So I just read a bit about those plans...so it is def. Not Unlimited MAX? That offers 150-200Mbps...

Not unless instead you've gone and chosen the £30 a month option that doesn't have any inclusive Spotify etc. That one still gets £192 redemption bringing it down to £14 a month for 5g unlimited without speed caps. (I'd say that is a far better deal personally)

If you need unlimited. It's only £7 a month for 20gb. Bonkers.

Hm, Netflix do indeed say that, assuming they mean 1080p. So it would be perfectly fine for even an HD TV plus general internet usage. I take it back, my sources regarding bandwidth quality were apparently not up to scratch.

So, do Vodafone throttle at their end and you pull whatever fraction of 10mbps your signal is getting, or will you phone pull up to 10mbps regardless of the signal? If that makes sense.

Sure. This coming from somebody who used to get away with using a 200mb Three Data SIM as his main mobile plan. I'd go over the free 200mb, but only by about 100mb, which meant a £1 a month bill on average.

Yep they do indeed mean 1080p. In fact the actual peak bit-rate of a Netflix 1080p SDR encode is 5800 Kb/s. People get swept up on some of these ridiculously high figures (Virgin Media's 516mb service being a perfect example.) but most of us aren't going even close to high figures in our bandwidth usage. Even something like iTunes 4K dolby vision movies come in under 26Mbps. Anything over that kind of level in day to day terms you aren't real noticing on a mobile, unless you are actually paying attention to how long it takes to download apps, or intend on walking around with a Google Stadia controller in your pocket when your out and about.

As for what you'll get with that 10Mbps throttled mate I'm not sure. I wouldn't want to presume something on here and some poor sap take that as gospel only to find they are stuffed up by it. I'd IMAGINE that they'd throttle the connection their end and you should be pretty bang on the money until you hit a poorer signal area that naturally drops your connection to lower than those levels. That would make sense but don't hold me to that.

So did Virgin, every time I've spoken to retentions they wanted to keep the price the same and raise the speed. Insisted on using speed and bandwidth usage interchangeably. No doubt knowing exactly what they were doing. Should take my own advice with a mobile plan really.

Thanks for chiming in, sucks to be wrong and not know it.
