Vodafone 76mbps fibre £28pm + possible £80 TCB = £23.56pm

Found 9th Mar
This deal was posted a few months back, but I note that TCB are now offering £80 cashback for "broadband 76" orders. Get it while you still can. There's also 50% off a new line (£24) if you need it provisioned for FTTC, but I've just switched from sky without any additional charges.
Quidco are offering slightly less at £50.

It's £31 if you are not a Vodafone customer, however you can order a free PAYG sim, or pick one up at the supermarket for £1. Just register it without topping up then you'll have instant access to the £28 per month.

Deduct from that the £80 TCB over the 18 months and the effective price is £23.56, which is by far and away the cheapest 76 meg fibre deal available through the copper wires right now.

As I said, I didn't pay it. And as I also wrote above there is currently 50% off connection if it's needed (£24). I moved from Sky who already have the line provisioned for these speeds (fibre max). They recently increased their line rental charges so I was able to get out of the £34 per month with Sky and get exactly the same speeds with Vodafone. It depends if fibre to the street cabinet has been installed yet. If not, then the company you're moving to will have to pay Openreach wholesale to provision it.

Am sick of the slow and dropping connections here since i rejoined BT, i have three kids half the week all use tablets phones etc and BT have continually fobbed me off saying that is the reason for my bad dropping connection and that i need to upgrade to infinity two (they cannot guarantee anymore than 15 meg extra speed even though the cabinet is 150 yards away and the exchange is onle half a mile away). The half a week when i dont have my kids here my line drops and disconnects, weird that.Virgin are not enabled in this area, a great shame, looks a better option as all the competition locally is capped at 38 meg.

What's any of that got to do with Vodafone?

I moved to Vodafone for just one week, you cant use your own router and the one provided is really poor. I moved back to Plusnet and everything loads quicker on wifi and cable. Just my experience..

Is there any traffic management during peak times etc?

Apparently not:

Just switched from Bt to vodafone and find the router to be far better than the homehub 5.We used to have to use a wifi extender but not now.Bt and their extortion are an issue of the past.

I had major issues with BT and connection drops when I first joined them, especially at peak times. Took some time to do my own troubleshooting and the issue I found was their DNS servers. At peak times they just can't handle the requests and you end up getting loads of timeouts on DNS lookups. This was made worse by them not allowing you to change the DNS servers their DHCP server sends out.

Resolved the problem by getting my own router and using that instead, something I would recommend over ISP's routers anyway. Since going down this route I rarely get any issues and rarely even restart my router. Plus my Router has some more business class features which allow me to prioritise my work traffic over my children's use of youtube :). I would be seriously considering this Vodafone deal only they don't allow you to use your own router, so it's a no from me.

I've been with Sky for TV, broadband and phone for 11 years, they wouldn't offer me anything lower than £34 for a 70+mbps service.
Now enjoy netflix and amazon prime so will be getting shot of the sky box and terrestrial tv all together by the end of the summer.
I think they are having serious problems with loss of customers to rival services with 4k content and exclusive shows.

@FamGuy - how did you avoid the £24 connection fee - when looking at this, it is automatically added to your basket. Did they contact you and tell you that it would be refunded?
