Total nightmare, never again.I had 2 routers, both from Vodafone, 2 SIMs, both which worked in phones but not in the routers. Bearing in mind I live in Zone 2 in Central London. I get 5g and 4g.I decided to return it after 2 failed devices and 2 SIMs. Customer service on the phone told me to go to the store, and then when I went to the store they said I had to post it back to the Head Office at my own cost. After 40 mins of arguing they eventually took the return.As an apology, Vodafone offered to give me 50GB of free data (I'm a pay monthly customer for my mobile). I thought, why not? I can use it as a WiFi substitute until my good ol' ADSL kicks in.Bill time comes around and I get charged an extra £45 for 'data add-on', ie. The free data they offered me! Long story short, Gigafast didn't work for me 4 times and Vodafone literally couldn't have handled it worse.


But vodafone gigafast isn't even offered anywhere in London. It's all done over Cityfibre's network and they haven't pushed it at all to personnal consumers anywhere in London. Are you sure were not on their FTTC network ran by openreach

London is no where to be seen on their list

Vodafone Gigafast via Cityfibre here in Milton Keynes, hasn't skipped a beat since February. Unfortunately I found the rest of the internet is the bottleneck now, not me. Should have only gone for the 500 package and saved a few quid until the rest of the world catches up. Still, this is nice - 38296241-PdIlx.jpg

Vodafone beating speeds of virgin media, who would of thought.
Whose infrastructure are they using?
shame I can't get it, fastest is 57mbps.

CityFibre. Our city has been dug up for a year now to provide connection to every house.

Well, when I did the check their speed estimate was based on OpenReach so my guess would be BT. We get 200mb with virgin, checking Voda and we would get less than 50.

yeah, i just checked mine and it's the same, around 50-60mpbs. I have 200mb with Virgin Media as well.

Not really worth changing. We have 10 people in our house, no way we could cope with those speeds now.

FTTP is only available for a very few people sadly. The UK is lacking quite a bit behind the residential broadband market compared to other EU countries yet our mobile phone contract costs are super cheap compared to other EU countries.

Cityfibre is providing all of vodafone's gigafast and they also provide gigabit via talktalk in york for something stupid like £23 monthly for 900/900
Edited by: "ShamWow" 19th Aug 2019
Yes it's £25 in York from talk talk for this speed
I have Vodafone broadband and their router is useless! They tell me that it can’t handle multiple devices connected at the same time and grinds to a halt.
My advice is to stay clear, 5 months left of my contract I can’t wait to leave!
All still overpriced if you ask me!!!
I am installing FTTP on one of my developments in Devon. Not 100% sure what speed the new owners will get. I thought it was 300 mbps via BT but maybe they will get faster speeds according to this? Who knows....

Sadly, tis not a squat. A squat would be quieter. We have our kids and special guardianship of 4 more. Lol.
If you have a decent signal, and given that you'll almost certainly need to buy a proper route either way, it may be cheaper to have with their unlimited 4G/5G phone package attached to a router. Some people on here do that.

Though their broadband still seems worth it to me, with a separately purchased router. Certainly if you're already with Vodafone, it's cheaper and the customer service ship has already sailed. The actual connection is, supposedly, extremely good.

Sounds to me like you had taken a mobile broadband offering, which would be reliant on a mobile network. Hence you entering a SIM card into a router. 5G has some known issues with penetrating through buildings, which some technology still needs to “catch-up” to overcome this issue.

“Gigafast” like others have mentioned is a cabled solution which requires a fibre cable ran to your property from the street cabinet, which is owned by the company CityFibre.

Not quite sure what you were sold there but it certainly isn’t/wasn’t “gigafast”.

This isn't done by openreach so that's why they offer more than 300/50 to consumers.

I'm currently only Openreach FTTH with BT and the max I can get is 300/50, curretntly paying for 150/30 however openreach has now said they will offer by the end of the year 500 and 1000/220 speeds to consumers as well as lowering the price of the 300mb package .

My contract expires next June and hopefully CityFibre will have reached my my house by then so I can switch over to 900/900 as it's the exact same price im paying for 150/30
mastermjr2004119/08/2019 19:23

Vodafone beating speeds of virgin media, who would of thought.


It's a shame the others don't have the coverage. I have a choice of VM or around 50/60 with a BT provider.

As soon as I can I'll be jumping ship to another provider, just need someone to pull their finger out and deploy to us....or I'll move :P

You weren't on gigafast. You were on some crap SIM package from Vodaphone.

GIGAFAST is full fibre to your house using CityFIbre.
Vodafone Gigafast Customer Service states that the £5 discount for existing Vodafone customers is not available on Gigafast connections.
