I've got broadband from them and it's an absolute nightmare. Their router struggles with more then 4 devices connected at the same time. They are unable to solve any problems, I'm constantly having to disconnect and reconnect devices to WiFi to be able to connect to the Internet. AVOID!

Change your router
6 weeks ago I got Plusnet £200 up front for a year, then a cheque in the post for £50. So around £12 plus change a month.
Even now with uswitch it's £20 per month for 18 month plus a £50 Amazon voucher.

Change your router


Why should they? I had same issue, all
Other providers were fine. Saw it was a good price and went for it. Obviously saving money on equipment.
My brothers both have vodafone fibre, both regret it.

I switched to that from BT as was having regular problems of dropping out and much lower than promised speeds which didn't seem to get resolved and two fairly quick price increases. It's been perfect and has dealt with a house of 5 with loads of
devices. (Now TV boxes, tablets,phone,TV ,computer etc)
Terrible service! Connection speed was appalling
Router is main issue, absolute bollox of a thing. Im thinkin of gettin my own router bt read on forums they are bein t*ts about giving user details out too. Pretty fed up with all the work i av to do for a good steady connection.

I called Vodafone and asked for my username and password, and they just gave it to me.

In the end the problem I had was fixed, so there was no need to change from the vodafone router.
Will deffo switch from BT to Vodafone when my BT contract expires in August. The highest download speed I can get us 1.0MB/s with my ancient BT Homehub 3. Vodafone will be a lot cheaper than the £32/month I currently pay for slow, rubbish service.
I use ASUS RT-AC87U problem solved

We've had similar issues throughout our contract and we cancelled asap. Now they are trying to charge us £72 because the router we have to send back to them isnt in its original box!! An utter joke. Such a scummy company.
I love my Vodafone. It's 100% better than EE and talktalk. I got a bargain on unlimited calls package so I think I will stay with these guys for a while

For those claiming the router to be the issue? Not in my case, my Netgear DM200 and Nighthawk 7800 router did nothing to fix the throughput issues in the month I had Vodafone.

Since then back with BT Infinity 2 and enjoying 60mbit+

The month I had Vodafone as my BB supplier was quite literally the worst service and customer support I've experienced in 20 years as an internet user. I'm now also in the process of moving my mobile lines to BT as a result... I want nothing to do with Vodafone.

Hence why I stick with BT customer service might be crap but the service works with no dropouts. I use these deals to renegotiate with BT

Is this Fibre with Plusnet? I believe it is ADSL.
There's only one good thing about Vodafone broadband & that's the 30 day get out. So you can sign up, take a little pain then cancel & go back to BT (or whoever) as a new customer, claiming any cashback & reward offers.

I didn't think it was humanly possible to be worse than BT for CS, but Vodafone have taken it to a whole new (low) level.

Oh & I too was threatened with the £72 charge for the router if I didn't return it in the bag that they repeatedly failed to supply, & two months later, still haven't!

Interesting. Do you have a link to T&C? I like this idea.

Remember NOW Fibre works out as just £15.42 a month after factoring in £65 Quidco cashback.
This Vodafone deal is poor.

Which is a bit nonsense as it leaves you without service unless you have your own router. I simply informed them I was cancelling & placed an order with BT.

Thanks. I have two lines and so two broadband connections, so this is fine for me!
But you do not need to return the router untll you go back to BT anyway.
Can I just say that I have been regularly checking my BT broadband speed with Speedtest. Last night was typical.

Download: 7.78 Mbps
Upload: 0.49 Mbps

I fully accept that Vodafone aren't going to be great & their speeds are going to be slow but BT stuffs me for £32/month and Vodafone costs £21/month. For slow rubbish broadband, I might as well try Vodafone and save myself £11/month!
Just one question to those folks (disgruntled or otherwise) who have tried Vodafone? Is the router rated for 'ac' WiFi or just plain n? My BT Homehub 3 isn't ac (just n) and isn't even dual band. The Vodafone router might not be the mutts nuts but I suspect it will be better than what I have now.
its an ac router, dual band, i think everyone either hates or loves any isp out there, none of them are perfect
I come out in a rash at the mention of Vodafone now
This has already been posted and of or those in Virgin areas, they'll offer you £23 for 50MB and £26 for 100MB (no TV) with a £50 credit on your first bill.

I'm no expert so won't say if that's better or worse.

I had Vodafone fibre but I cancelled after 20 days the router is not great it Kept going off line and internet was so slow going so I went back to sky and was offered sky q box with entertainment fibre broadband and line rental no install fee for £33 a month so my advice would be stay well away Vodafone not worth the hassle

Your ticket on Vodafone is marked green and solved, so internally the managers are happy because another ticket resolved. Don't laugh, this really does happen in companies I worked for. Its all about the numbers and targets.

And you mentioned Vodafone broadband may be using 4G backbone for their fibre - is this just a hunch or you have more info?

Funny you should say that. Not half hour ago I posted this discussion asking if anyone has had BT broadband retention deals before. I'm having very little luck despite calling BT 4 times already.

It was a joke (4G) as their service was so p*** poor!

I marked it solved deliberately so as onlookers could see the meat of the problem, there is no resolution via their forums. The staff/mods are next to useless and simply advise to call CS who also do phuck all.

No surprises...http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-43877267


"Vodafone has been rated the worst mobile phone provider for the seventh year running (by) Which?"
"(Vodafone) said in a statement: These findings published by Which? really don't match up with what our customers are telling us"
"The other leading providers, EE, O2 and Three, also scored badly, with service judged average and disappointing"

There's no incentive to improve either. What you going to do - move to smaller players like say giffgaff? Guess what, ultimately you are still an O2 customer. Same for all other MVNO's. System is bust.
They are crap by the look of it
