This sounds ok, but I'll be happy to be proven wrong.

I'm currently with Virgin and they've said the cheapest they could do would be £32/month.

This is for a 18 month contract and there is a £24 connection charge, but there are no line rental charges (and you still get to keep your existing land-line with your same number). It's for unlimited usage (I know other providers say this but a Virgin technician told me on the phone that they do throttle usage occasionally).

The router looks very good - you can use an app to direct usage to where it's needed most (for example I could give more to the lad online on his PS4 if I'm just browsing on my laptop - currently it drops out now and again with virgin halfway through a game).

I'm an existing mobile customer and was offered this when I rang up to get a new sim only deal - said they could give me the 50Mbps fibre for £23 (he might mean the 76Mbps?).

When I threatened to cancel for the price rise. Got 150mb broadband and phone for £32 a month for 12 months. Didn't think that was too bad.

Service is beyond awful. Its just offensive!!

Just signed up for this tonight. £80 cashback with quidco too.

Bye bye BT

I've been with Vodafone for over 10 years and never had a problem.
By service do you mean customer service if things go wrong?

They also gave me a sim only deal of 3Mb of data, 1000 mins & unlimited texts for £7.50/month which seems decent?

This is home fibre broadband i've just signed up for

That's a good deal but I don't think I need that much speed tbh. It's all about the cost at the moment - putting a daughter through Uni and it's killing me. That's why we're all going to sim only deals - there'll be no handset upgrades for 4 years

There's a lot voting cold on this , it would be helpful if they could point me in the direction of a better deal?

I am also with Virgin and I was also offered £32/month for fibre 70mb + landline upon renewal. I gave my notice to cancel and hope to get a better offer in the next 30 days. I'm quite happy with Virgin, didn't have any issues so far, but I find £32 too expensive compared to the £20 for the same package I currently pay.

I'm currently paying £42/month just for my broadband and I've been with Virgin for nigh on 20 years (Telewest etc), had no problems but just want to save money. I just wish those voting cold would show me a better deal?

do they send a engineer out? I'm put off with paying £49 for one with bt

You are right, I have searched high and low and there are no decent offers I have seen. I think people vote cold because it's Vodafone...I voted hot.

Found this review on cable.co.uk

What we like
Unlimited usage across the board
Vodafone Broadband packages are free of usage caps. There are no limits on how much you can download and no hidden charges. This applies across all Vodafone broadband and phone plans, from standard broadband to its fastest fibre plan.
It’s not exactly a standout feature in the wider broadband market – most major providers offer unlimited usage including BT, Sky and Virgin Media – but for a relative newcomer like Vodafone broadband to do away with restrictions from the start shows that it understands the needs of the average user, and that’s always a plus.

We've been with Vodafone fibre Broadband for 6 months or so now and really impressed. Consistently high speed (36mbps on the same line that Talk Talk struggled to get 2mbps on fibre). We've not had any problems with outages & I've found customer services to be helpful on any occasion I've had to deal with them.

I'm very happy we changed to them
(no affiliation with Vodafone just a happy customer who's delighted to have decent Internet after 2 years of hell with Talk Talk)

That's because there is no fair use or throttling policy.... They have there 2 of there own own data lines into the exchange and don't share BTs 1 data line.

This going freezing cold but the decent comments on here are pushing me towards getting this - especially with the £80 Quidco cashback.

This is Vodafone's Broadband Traffic Management Policy as filed with Ofcom. They basically have zero traffic management what so ever, so when the systems at peak use your speed is simply reduced.... I'll pass.

​plusnet upload speed is capped at 2mbps for the lower fibre package. infinity 1 I believe is up to 9.5mbps. Worth a note.

Im on Sky 38 mbps and paying 17.99 all inc. I also had £75 cash back. Im a bit scared watching these deals lol

Is that not for the standard broadband, not fibre? As I say I contacted Virgin once as my internet had dropped to practically zero and the technician went through all my usage for the month and told me it was because I'd used too much. They later denied saying this.

​How on earth did you manage to come to that conclusion. Fiber can support alot more than advertised. ALOT more. Hence why alot of companies arnt traffic shaping on fiber. Viring has to because their equipment at the exchabge is so outdated. They oversubscribed in all major citiea and areas sonthey have to traffic shape.
Been with quite a few fiber suppliera. All are the same in terms of speed etc. They all use the same stuff. Just customer service differs. Being a vidafone customwr for 20 years never had a mobile phone issue. Now i took the plunge for their fiber in two premises cant fault them. Their routers are really good too.

True, but I'm edging towards Vodafone as I'm an existing customer - and I think he was offering me the 76Mbps fiber for £23/month. I'm waiting for this to hit minus 100 before committing though.

Lol i wouldn't worry about it all the fibre deals seem to go cold for some reason

I just moved from bt and got virgin 50mb, no landline for £18 a month. Plus £50 credit so for the 12 month contract works out to less than £14 a month!

Pretty sure the £23 is for the 38/10mbps and for existing vodafone customers. Vodafone do not offer any 55/10mbps package, it's either up to 38/10 or 76/20.
Line rental charges are still there, it's just merged into a single price. There are no throttling policies with vodafone's own fibre network, if it's via Daisy wholesale network then it is potentially throttled at certain periods.
"Router features" are gimmicky advertisement. Browsing will rarely utilising the full speed of your "fibre" speed so as long the connection doesn't drop it wouldn't affect someone gaming online. With gaming online or voice/video-calling, upload speed are more important than download.
Router is pretty poor compared to actual well-designed routers. Most of the "features" that vodafone advertised are already standard on most well-designed routers. Vodafone will force you to use their router unless you have evidence of they saying you can have the username and password for your line.

​He definitely said 50 so I took it to mean that if I took the 76Mbps it's more like 50? I've got 70 with Virgin but it's nothing like that in reality.

£23 is the 38mbp one

No, he almost certainly means 50Mb, BT brought out a number of intermediate speed packages a few months ago; off the top of my head there is an up to 18Mb, an upto 38Mb, and upto 55Mb and an upto 80Mb, although due to how they have to advertise them now, that is 15,35,50 and 76.

​just go with it. i've signed for this a few months ago and i'm more than happy. Speeds as exactly as promised (i have the 78 Mbits for £28), no traffic shapping, router is the best out there when it comes to its features. I managed to kill mine somehow, it just simply stopped working, no lights, gave Vodafone a call in the morning and had a new router in the post the next day.
You might find cheaper but surely not from a reputable company as Vodafone. Plus, like you said you get to keep your landline number which was important for me. Also I sign for this online through webchat and they took care of everything for me with my previous provider, didn't have to make a single phone call or email, and didn't have 1 minute of downtime, unplugged router from old provider, plugged new one from Vodafone et voila!!
