Vodafone are currently doing unlimited firbre broadband at 76mbps for £28p/m. There is no line rental and a free Vodafone connect router is provided. Sky offer a similar deal at £40.40 p/m. A £49 set up fee may be needed but I was told by a call handler it's rare that you will be charged this, just need to bare in mind you may need to pay it.

im on same deal with free phone call package unlimited at only £20 per month had to negotiate on phone said I'm not happy but worth it.


Don't be Naive. There is line rental...it comes down the same openreach fibre as everyone elses. They just don't list it separately in the bill.
Sky Fibre is £10pm plus £17.40 line rental...

Maybe so iridium but it's still cheaper than sky right?

No sky is cheaper even including line rental, so can have home phone if want......if got sky sports I got sky fibre for free just pay line rental

sky fibre is only 38mb? I'm with plusnet, unlimited at 76mb 27.99 Inc line rental. can't see any reason to change.

It's 32.40 just for sky fibre 76 broadband including line rental, the deal isn't mentioning sky tv. The deal with Vodafone is £28 a month all on including line rental. How is that not cheaper? £4.40 cheaper than sky?

You can get 76mbps with sky but it's £15 plus £17.40 line rental

remember all those speeds are UP TO....and ALL of the Fibre providers (Sky/BT/Plusnet/Vodafone etc..) other than Virgin will be using the same Openreach provided line.

If your not close to the exchange you won't get close to that, Best I can get on an openreach Fibre is 25Mbps but with virgin I can get 200Mbps plus.

no point paying for an upto 76Mbps package if you can only get 30-40Mbps

Again that's not what the deal is stating though is it? You may be interested to know that virgin media isn't available in all parts of the UK, that's why people unfortunalty have to go with an internet connection over a telephone line. So the questions is do you want up to 76mps or up to 17mbps? And yes I'm aware that they will all be using the same line so why would I pay £34 with sky when I can get the same speed at £28? That's the idea why the deal is better than others on the market

36mb fibre with line rental for £18.70 a month with Sky from a deal on here recently, cold from me I'm afraid.

I can't believe they have the cheek to say "no line rental". If there was no rental, the price would be £10 max per month

I was also pointing out that it's not worth paying the extra for an upto 76Mbps service If your line won't support that speed.

I know everyone is all about fibre these days, and for families with lots of devices or streaming then 36Mbps is probably more than sufficient. I have "up to" 17Mbps, which I can usually achieve on speed tests but I don't struggle with bandwidth

Remember to look for a good deal but also be realistic about what you need! ADSL2 is fine for me and my partner, even with my streaming, and I pay just over 50p a month (after the cashback I recieved)

Yeah to be fair that is a good deal, however this deal is with regards to 76mbps speed and the 76mbps is still cheaper than what sky can offer it for.

Yeah we all know nothing is for free these days, like when you get a free phone with a contract package, it's all covered for in the cost of the contract. However even if it was split from line rental and product it would still work out cheaper than other providers

And this is it, this deal won't appeal to everyone. But some may find it useful which is what this site is all about

Yeah it needs to hit a required minimum for it to state 76mps, they have to garuntee it from around 70mbps.

The price you're talking about is for 40mb speeds, and after 12 months it goes up to £20 per month + line rental

Line rental is included in the £28

​are plusnet any good. I'm with Virginia and want to leave but don't know which other provider to go to.

I tried to order Vodafone broradband ..... two lines at my property they tried too take over the wrong one ..... Twice!!!!!

Told them to forget ....went with the BT deal and was sorted first time on the day I selected!

uswitch state £49 fibre activation and £60 installation. how do you get them to waive these fees?

just ordered this. they would not waive the £49.00 fee though. anyone had success getting that waived? got a promised minimum speed of 62mb and can cancel if they dont meet it. lets see how this goes!

The £60 I believe is if you want a new number and the £49 I was told could be wavered if an engineer is not needed.

Wait for your first bill, I was told when I ordered it that I may not be charged it depending on if an enigineer is needed to attend the exchange. That's all you can do is wait and see what it's like, it must be better than the standard 17mbps surly?

well i was with talk talk and they offered same package for 30 a month without the activation fee (current customer). but the promised minimum speed was 40 so as Vodafone offering 62 went with them - will cancel if promised speed not provided.

Sky tried to offer me a deal with waving the activation fee but it didn't come close, the Vodafone sales assistant said if you can get the fibre then you will probably not pay the activation fee at all, but he did say there might be a chance you have to. Will wait and see but I'd rather pay the activation fee and get a better deal. As for the promised speed I was promised minimum of about 68-70 so will see how that fairs, if it's pants I will most Lilkly try another provider but that being said I should imagine the speed would be deter I'm Ines on your phone line and distance from the exchange and not the provider

Yup but it gives you a good way of terminating contract early if they can't give those speeds

i've read on MSE that new legislation means new contracts (think from 2017) need to show the actual monthly cost, instead of individually as you can't have one without the other (unless your with virginmedia). probably the route Vodafone have gone while it's still building up its clientbase. £28pm for BB and calls, sold by a mobile phone network...the irony

plusnet decided to remove my retention offer, bumping my monthly price up to £38. I pointed out Vodafone's offer and they couldn't care less. so I switched. no install or switch on costs. not even a postal charge for the router. £28 for 76mb fibre unlimited Inc line rental is fine for me.

i'm one of the guys that think is a good deal. waiting to go live on 2nd

Actually, OfCom has abolished separate line rental prices for broadband packages. The OP is in fact completely correct.

The OP states "There is no Line Rental", which is NOT correct. I simply stated of course there IS line rental.
And there is, it's just wrapped up into the price of the Broadband now and not listed separately as per new OfCom remit...

Where do you think Vodafone gets the line from, yes that's right it's from BT, so this charge will then need to paid for somehow.

I don't disagree with OfCom, I think its far better for the consumer than having a headline BB price with an obscure line rental charge hidden in small print.
