Avoid Vodafone like the plague. They are incredibly badly organised, and just don't have the organisational ability to run a broadband service. I had so many issues getting set up - all caused by Vodafone doing things wrong with the installation and mischarging me. They terminated an existing line instead of transferring it, they over charged me - and every time you want to talk to them it's 5 mins of automated telephone bot asking you questions till you get through. Everyone you speak to says something different etc etc - they wont ever email you anything either so you can't have a record of what they said. Just awful customer experience. The router is shoddy and drops out regulary. If you ever want to move they say you have to pay the balance of your contract or sign up to a new 18 month contract - which is basically extortion. Total joke of a company.

AVOID - BIG COMPANY TOTAL DISREGARD FOR PAYING CUSTOMERS
I had the worse customer experience when dealing with Vodafone. I was made to wait in for two days to be connected, 4 days later Vodafone admitted they had connected broadband neighbours flat and also failed to let my neighbours know resulting in them not being able to use wi fi. I spent 5 hours on the phone to customer services. I was lied to. I wrote to the CEO five times and I was lied to by the Directors Office. Waited over 2 weeks for a refund for broadband I did not receive The whole episode was disgraceful. AVOID

Worst internet ever. I literally do not even know how Vodafone is even allowed to have a broadband. Spent 30 minutes trying to load things up. Games I download that only take around an hour takes a day to download. Simply unreliable, the speed is extremely slow I do not recommend Vodafone. Customer Service is okay I guess but they end up never helping. Any recommendations?

I feel the need to write a good review after all the concerning reviews written for almost all of the ISPs! I was worried to get a really bad service after doing some research about any of the main ISPs. I recently moved and was with VM before but it wasn't available in the new building so I signed up to Vodafone Superfast 2. Guaranteed speeds promised around 50Mbit down/12Mbit up. When the engineer came he said I could expect around 50-60Mbit and the Router initially synced with around 63. That was 4 weeks ago and meanwhile the router gradually increased the sync speed to 76Mbit down. No reconnects, stable speeds even at peak time. 20Mbit upload. Effective download speed is around 9MB/sec = 72Mbit. Couldn't be happier given that is the current maximum for this type of line. Also the router is quite decent, has good coverage and a lot of configurable options in the web interface.

Overall lower than expected speed, repeated lags, drop in speed and connectivity are very common, but typically comes back online in under 10 mins.. however God Bless your soul should you have a problem.. the customer service experience is horrible. I recently had a nightmare trying to get the broadband fixed on a working day. The whole thing goes down right in the middle of a busy day packed with conference calls.. try to reach customer service in the middle of conference calls and it’s the Spanish Inquisition on security, asking for pins and passwords and security questions I set up 12-18 months back, when I am trying to juggle my time between important calls.. WHY ON EARTH WOULD I BE INTERESTED IN FIXING SOMEONE ELSES BROADBAND.. I completely understand the security concern if I was trying to change something on the account all I was asking was to fix the connection, which they would see was down on their system.. Finally I had to follow up in the evening get put on hold for over 65 mins and finally get through a kind customer service executive who knew his stuff and had common sense... I don’t blame the customer service execs that are probably getting the raw end of the deal.. it’s the management of the company.. “the fish stinks from that head”..

anyway I have decided to switch.. hopefully the new provider “plus net” do a better job.. Plusnet’s customer service and communication have impressed me so far..

Charlton Vodafone  
Decided to go with VP due to a long standing issue with my phone, they kept at it and finally resolved the problem. Was not happy about the length of time but customer service eventually work reallly well.
Now to the broadband, another reason was the free gift more later, speed is 30mbps which is great, I am on Suoerfast 1, really pleased.
Reliability I have had to reset the router once so again completely happy.

Overall satisfaction - well I am not satisfied as my promised free gift of a Sonos 1 speaker still has not turned up. The last communication I received was that it will be delyaed another 15 days. Called their promotions team and although a very nice chat no commitment of a delivery date. Apparenty they are very popular and VP are waiting for supplies. They could go to John Lewis or Amazom as they seem to grow on Christmas trees there. So VP if you make a sales promise good Customer Service depends upon you fulfilling your side of the bargain or at least communicating in a meaningful manner.

initially they canceled the first order without telling. so had to go through the whole process again. when i eventually received the router it has been terrible since day 1 constantly dropping out every 20 mins or so for the last 2 weeks, we were given a guaranteed minimum speed of 73mbps, when i can actually use the internet i have tested it at between 10 and 30mbps i have spoken to then they have had me change a number of settings on the router that has made absolutely no difference at all. i have resorted to using my mobile data as the broadband just drops so much and i cant ever do anything. i will be calling in the morning to cancel. i would strongly recommend you do not switch to vodafone.

Vodafone have been utterly incompetent in most aspects of the set up and [non] execution of my fibre broadband service. Five dates were given, each one assuring me that today was going to be the day when, finally, I would be 'activated'. Five times I was disappointed. No more. I hope they cancel my broadband order more efficiently than they activated it. Customer Service were pleasant, but useless. Vodafone, never, EVER again. If you are the last broadband provider on earth, I would resort to smoke signals.

Chelmsford Vodafone  
Really annoying switch to VF. First of all they changed our number which we had had for 40 years. I rang to complain and was told that they could sort in 3 days. I then rang again shortly after to clarify another issue and was told it would take 4 weeks to get our old number back but no guarantee. Fortunately the first person was right! My first bill was just for a couple of days use so no surprises there. The second bill had over £40 of call charges despite having asked for the £8 anytime calling feature. Their website was down - not an unusual occurrence. Spent half an hour waiting for someone to answer in their call centre and gave up. Eventually got a response from an overseas call centre. They said that my order had not stipulated anytime calling and although they would add it to my contract there was no way that they were going to refund the overcharge. Also be aware that their "Manage my account" app is only designed for mobile use - it was difficult to get this set up as a broadband user. I am locked in now - I hope things get better.

I change from Sky to Vodafone as they promised me Super Speed Internet. The first two weeks it was like promise, then it kept dropping out and would not connect. Which is very annoying when watching Netflix. I’m now using a lot more Mobile phone data than home broadband. I spoke to customer service which was useless and was very difficult to understand. They said I can not cancel as it’s over 14 days, how convenient! Eventually they agreed they would send me out a engineer. Who did not turn up after spending the whole day in waiting. Very upsetting. And yes, I am still getting charged for piss poor internet. So people I’m warning you. Please please do not use Vodafone as your Home broadband!!

If you’re considering Vodafone as a provider I’m begging you to please re consider. They’re the worst provider I have ever been with. My broadband cuts out every day without fail. And customer service are useless the 7th phone call, promises, setting changers, engineer who didn’t turn up after waiting in all day. And a promise phone calls back in afew days which didn’t happen. and my internet is still absolutely ridiculously poor. And because it over 14days I can’t cancel.

We placed our order for the Vodafone service on February 22nd. We told we would receive emails letting us know when to expect the router and activation. I received the email regarding the router, however I have yet to receive a single email regarding the activation. I have had the router since March 04 with no service. when we tried to find out why on the 5th oh March it took numerous attempts and all we were told is that service has been delayed until the 9th. The 9th came and went with no update and no service. This morning, the 10th I have spent over 20 minutes on their chat (the chat service was not working last night) and was given an incoherent rant that I still don't understand. The gist of which is that the activation has been delayed until the 11th. At this point I doubt my service e will ever work. I can say without doubt, Vodafone, is the worst company I have had the displeasure of working with in my 52 years.

Under no circumstance should you pay for this atrocious service. The connection constantly drops out everyday, more than once. This is by far the most unreliable broadband service I have had to date.
The customer service is fine as they try to help you the best they can. The connection is dreadful and the speed will fluctuate as and when it wants to.
Save yourself the aggravation and go with another provider, I will be as soon as my contract is over.
Utter waste of money, I spend most of my browsing time using my phone data as it’s far more reliable. Ironically that’s also provided by Vodafone.

Not sure what the hating is all about. After being with talktalk & Sky in the past Vodafone are a refreshing change. The best broadband customer service if not one the best customer service full stop.
A few weeks after getting broadband it went down fof some reason & they sorted it, up & running again with an engineer within 24 hours. Changed my payment date twice & no issues at all. Speed is good, every now & again it may lag a little but its rare & tbh its to be expected, the speed is the same regardless who've I been with.
Highly recommended, don't let the reviews put you off - don't forget most people only review to moan so you don't get to see the good side

Terrible - entire process. Placing an order in the first instance was full of promises and then screwed up my order. It took a ridiculous amount of phone calls to resolve. I was simply doing a switch from Sky and my broadband with Vodafone was due to go live 17 days ago. Router arrived on time but since then no body at Vodafone has been able to help. They say I just need to wait, but they don't know what I need to wait. I've spent hours on the phone to people in various countries and a shear waste of time. Still No Wifi. Avoid Avoid Avoid.

Awful service, Awful speed, rubbish router. I would rather pay slightly more and go with a better service provider. Customer services aren't English and barely understand English language. This makes it more frustrating when you need technical issues resolving.

Utter pants. There has not been a day when we have had a trouble free internet day. Constantly drops out, router resets itself back to its default name and password, we have used 4g more than we’ve enjoyed connection! Customer service seem clueless (prompting you to reset the router every time you call) was told initially “oh the line will have a 10 day settling in period, that’s why you’re dropping connection.” Well let me tell you... day 12 I reverted back to BT

My Father used to say “you get what you pay for”

Absolute rubbish Vodafone!!! Will be steering clear of your services until my last breath.

I switched to Vodafone from TalkTalk as they were unable to match the Vodafone offer which was ten pound a month cheaper and double the speed. The switchover was completely seamless and now getting 75MBPS download and around 20 MBPS upload. The service is 100% reliable and I 100% recommend it.

I have had Vodafone broadband for six months now I was paying for up to 76 mps and on average I was getting between 5-10 at the most.
Every time you contact Vodafone the problem all they said is we will raise a ticket but enough was enough
I decided to cut my losses and pay the early termination fee it was the best £100 I have ever spent
I also cancelled my 2 mobile contracts
Just remember you only get what you pay for

Changed to Vodafone from SKY and its the worst mistake I ever made. They claim 35mbps which I get during the day however weekends and after 6pm I get speeds under4mbps. Useless to stream anything, countless calls to support being told to go through the same process time after time. Their system can't cope when it's busy at night, absolute pathetic service. £156 early cancellation fee which BT will pay if I move to them so I am moving tomorrow. Do not under any circumstances sign up for this service £21 per month is cheap and you pay for what you get. Just a total disaster from day 1.

DO NOT BUY!!!!!!
Guaranteed download speed 35mbps??
Actual download speed 3.88mbps!!!
Spoke on live chat several times during this period to try and resolve or cancel. Have to phone to cancel so after phoning a few times and being on hold for 20 minutes.... give up.
Today I waited and spoke to someone, cost to cancel £140.00 as i have had it for SIX WEEKS now.
Total time on phone 1 hour and 7 minutes.
IT'S AN ABSOLUTE JOKE!!!!

I only left Sky because I was offered a really good deal as I had my mobile phone with them and I wish I hadn't. This is the worst broadband provider I've ever been with. the service constantly drops out completely it's rare that we actually get to watch a film or TV programme in one go, trying to play online games like rocket league is next to impossible and I'm currently writing this with 1.5gb of download speed. When I call and complain the staff seem pleasant enough and for a week or two all seems fine then I'm back to drop outs and slow internet. Absolutely useless - avoid.

Absolutely terrible, avoid at all costs. Vodaphone are probably the worst ever broadband AND phone provider I have had the misfortune to encounter. I have been a customer with them for 16 years and have only stayed because of their extensive network coverage. To date I have had to virtually sue them for their appalling customer service. The Ombudsman found in my favour and I was awarded £1000! from Vodaphone. Mistakenly I took out their broadband thinking they had improved. They have not. The broadband is appalling, constantly drops out and half the time doesn't even work at all. In spite of raising yet another complaint I am unable to actually contact Olivia who is mean to be from the Directors Office and who claims to be handling my complaint. The reason being, that all of the customer service agents I speak to cant understand me, cant speak English and read literally from an autocue! In desperation today I tried to raise a complaint on live chat but no I was told that I now have to start a fresh complaint as the old one has expired!! So now I am stuck with 2 phones costing me £100 per month and broadband that is so useless we don't even bother trying to use it and have instead reverted to using our EE hub which is brilliant. I am now in the process of cancelling my broadband and raising yet another complaint with the Ombudsman because Vodaphone wont listen to me. If you are considering Vodaphone DONT!!!! they are frankly appalling!

We swapped to vodafone after being with sky for a very long time, The lack of having to pay line rental was amazing and members of the family are also with vodafone for mobiles, which made it even cheaper.

Still only getting 54megs (on the 76 package at the moment but knowing this will go up over the next 10 days as they do tests on the line to make sure it can cope with the faster speeds. upload is at a full 20megs which is lush.


The router is fine, but we have our own access points for wifi and switch to power those access points so its just sat there as a router/gateway to the internet (anyone expecting amazing hardware from their isp are silly, all isps hardware is cheap when it comes to wifi in my book. not gone down once since the connection was moved over. loving the gb network connections to the rest of the LAN.

Seeing as its faster/cheaper than sky its a win win. Will leave another comment after a month or so.

What a mistake to move to Vodafone!
Phone and broadband transferred last Thursday 31st Jan. Worked for 2 hours then broadband stopped working and hasn't worked since.
I've spent hours on the phone to support to no avail. Just installed a new router that hasn't made any difference. To top it all they lost my phone number when migrating the service.
This has to be my worst customer experience ever.
I was attracted by the cost but now seriously regret my choice. I have no confidence my broadband will be working in the near term and I've lost the phone number for good.
I would encourage anyone thinking of moving to Vodafone to think again. Whilst you might save a few £s the hassle if it goes wrong will cost much more.
A seriously unhappy customer!

Moved from a cancelled 2 month disaster with BT. How OFCOM permits this shower to trade as a company is beyond me .The back office function is chaotic and the Indian call centre good for nothing. BT uses unacheivable line speeds to sell broadband . Vodafone changeover came and went with no issue .The promised speed is exactly where it should be and something never achieved with BT. Vodafone does not seem to traffic manage or prioritise . This maybe due to the massive capacity of the old C&W business fibre network Vodafone bought in 2012 .
I have very stable bb at the promised speed and my monthly bill has been halved. Yes Vodafone has had its problems but there is a will to improve unlike BT who just want your money.....

Since joining Vodafone we have had several on going issues either with changing address, access to the account, internet going down and others.

Customer services are an absolute joke and tell you exactly what you want to hear but nothing ever comes to fruition. I have been outright lied to on several occasions. Offered free upgrades and when I phoned to arrange this told that it wasn’t possible and that I can’t get one. The system is rigged against its customers and they do not care about you at all if issue arise. I will be happy to leave Vodafone as soon as our contract ends.

Wouldn’t recommend to anyone. Worst company we’ve had broadband with.

Coatbridge Vodafone  
Over the years I've had a lot of experience in trying out a number of different Broadband packages and each time have been terribly disappointed, until now. Our area suffers from having old style BT line connections with a great deal of inertia on the part of BT to change things unless of course you happen to be buying their service for much greater than the average market price.

Every previous attempt over the past decade has led to similar results with poor download speeds and a pretty mundane response from the provider.

In desperation I turned to Vodafone, with whom I have my mobile service, and who are now offering a good deal on Superfast Broadband with a guaranteed minimum speed. When I contacted them to explain my connection problems they assured me it would not be a problem to them and I would be able to achieve a Superfast service. Initially, however that did not prove correct as, on the connection date the Open Reach engineer discovered there were no spare Superfast ports available in our BT service box.

Within minutes of finding this out I received a call from Vodafone Customer Services explaining the issues and with an immediate alternative temporary internet solution to keep me connected while they sorted it out with BT and Open Reach.

In the space of the next seven days I had updates aplenty from Vodafone and then they achieved what others had failed to do - I had a Superfast connection.

Never in more than a decade of other providers, including Talk Talk (abysmal twice), Plus Net (twice), Sky and John Lewis (which is Plus Net in disguise I think) have I ever had this level of service, nor the results I was seeking.
In the past my average download speeds were a pitiful 2Mbps if I was lucky. Now since Voadfone its averaging 21.5 MBps, more than ten times better.

To top that the Vodafone router is amazing. It's robust and efficient with what I believe they call Beaming technology. Before we could not use Wifi in our garden yet now we have connections all the way to the back of it and even inside a summerhouse which is a good 30 metres away from teh router, with little impact on download speed.

Am I pleased? You bet! Thank you Vodafone. Never before have I been able to write a review for anything which is as glowing as this one. But please keep it up for all those others out there who like me have been through hell and back with some of the other less effective providers.

Colchester Vodafone  
I signed up for Vodafone’s 18 month super-fast broadband deal. At first, everything seemed fine. Set up was okay, connection was stable and consistent.

My main issue and the reason why I have given Vodafone 1 star is because of customer service. When something goes wrong it is a BATTLE to try and get it resolved.

Problems first arose when someone mistakenly entered my address for an EE broadband account. I notified Vodafone immediately and was reassured that the attempted switch would not happen. I have proof of this conversation through web chat logs receipted to my email.

What happened next can only be described as a hilarious farce. The switch to EE continued. On 22nd July my broadband was deactivated and I received a “sorry to see you go” email at 4am. I had no prior notification of this switch continuing, and no knowledge of who was trying to pursue the broadband switch.

Upon seeing the “sorry to see you go” email, I contacted Vodafone immediately to cancel the broadband switch once again. At this stage I was told by the sales representative that my account had already been deactivated and the only way they could fix this mess is by setting up a whole new broadband order. The earliest they could get me back up and running was 14 working days.

I work from home, so this came as a huge blow to me that I could be deactivated from my account without my consent, without my authorisation, and without ANY warning. Vodafone have been incredibly obstinate and have tried to minimise this incident as much as they can.

At first I was offered a free dongle and free-of-charge data plan to tide me over whilst I wait for my broadband to be reactivated. I was told to go to a Vodafone store that same day and that I could collect one, free-of-charge. That turned out to be an oversell – I had to purchase the dongle and data plan. I tried to chase Vodafone for reimbursement for this, as I was promised and reassured multiple times over the phone. I eventually got a refund for the dongle, but the airtime bill came to £200+ (after repeated promises, recorded from online chat, assuring me I would not be charged). I then had to get in contact AGAIN, only to be told that I need to pay the bill repeatedly, until someone who knew how to read the notes on my account realised that I was in fact promised a free airtime bill.

Now we’re in August, and my new broadband order has been activated. It took a whole day to call up someone competent so they could ‘activate’ my internet connection, even though the line had now been switched to Vodafone and I should’ve been able to just plug in the router and go.

I was promised (lol) that once I reactivated my broadband with Vodafone, adequate compensation could then be discussed. Obviously this isn’t happening. AVOID VODAFONE AT ALL COSTS.

What happened to me is called slamming, and it's against ofcom's rules. I've been in contact with ofcom about this because Vodafone are truly ridiculous and about as helpful as a speck of dust. MY advice to other people is to get ofcom involved in any wrongdoing you suspect from Vodafone or other telecommunications companies.

Switched from sky as was offered better speeds. Avoid by all costs. Don't be fooled by the good price and high speeds. for 3 weeks now I haven't had a day where the internet has stayed online all day, diconects of 1-3 hours serval times a day. Customer service don't have a clue, get transferred from one person to another.Then to be told they will look into it give you a call back in 48 hours( 5 times thay have said this over the past 3 weeks and each time I'VE had to call them back. on the occasion we do get internet you can't stream, you get high ping in games, have problems with YouTube ect.Cant stress enough how poor this internet is! will give you hours upon hours of stress everyday. Really can't wait till my contracts up. Don't make this mistake.

I have just upgradee to Superfast 2. The download speed is on average 71 and upload 18. Vodafone have always been very helpful over the phone and in the local outlet. For a total price of £23 + £5 for unlimited phone calls. Extremely happy with the service.
