Found 19th Mar
vodafone are currently running a promotion till the 11th April 2017 for their fibre broadband the fibre connection fee is only a pound instead of 49 pound! very good price since a lot of providers charge between 30-50 pounds connection fee.

Vodafone will also sort out any switching from one provider to another (except virgin) or if you need a new line they also have a promotion running of half price new line connection reduced from £60 to £29

broadband prices and speeds are as follows*

unlimited 38mbps-£23pm for existing customers or £26pm for new customers

or

unlimited 76mbps-£28pm for existing customers or £31pm for new customers

18 month contract and I believe if you are not a Vodafone customer buying a pay as you go SIM card gets you the existing customer prices.

*speeds and broadband subject to area. website provides postcode search option to check if you can get it in your area and a more accurate speed. 6.99 delivery fee for the router .

Can you get the broadband without the line rental though?

It's included in the monthly price.

Well I saved £20/month switching back from BT to Talk Talk, so may look into this for my home office.

​​Vodafone will not provide you with your username or password to use your own router with their service. This is because their ADSL 17mb offer is actually a router throttled 38mb fibre connection.

There is a design flaw with the Vodafone supplied router that prevents wired and wireless devices on the same network from seeing each other. This has still not been fixed after more than a year.

Thankfully I read about all this before the 14 day cooling off period ended, cancelled my order and took the BT deal

What do you mean by this? I can cast from my phone (wifi) to my Android TV (wired) so they must be seeing each other.

On the subject of the deal though, potential buyers should be cautious. It's not a particularly great service. The router is terrible, you can't use your own (so my dark knight is gathering dust until I can leave) and the connection is up and down. One minute I can stream 4k, then it'll struggle to stream 360p until I either wait a while or restart the router. Unfortunately for me I ran into problems after the cancellation period so now I'm stuck until the contract ends.

As soon as it's up I'm leaving Vodafone.

Quidco available as well.

​These seem to be the main problems and the reason I cancelled the order:

1. A Laptop connected on the Wifi 5Ghz channel cannot see a Server connected by LAN Cable, if you disable the 5ghz band you can see the server fine but it reduces the functionality of the router.

2. You cannot connect to a device via port forwarding using the external router IP from within the network. however you can access the device from outside the network.

As for you being able to screen mirror I think that uses WiFi direct and you may have your phone connected to the router but not on the 5ghz network so it is successful albeit at a slower speed than the router is capable of.

I'd heard that the connection is not particularly stable as you confirm and the forums are full of horror stories about the lack of customer service and over billing so I cancelled.

poor speeds and dropouts

​yeah, I would have expected a firmware update to resolve by now considering they point blank refuse to give you your log on so you can use your own router
