    Complete disaster. Coverage is spotty and inconsistent. Doing well if we get 100-300 Kbps. For €60 a month you'd expect a bit more. Usually now we just tether off our tesco mobile which is much better. What really irritates me is that it's completely impossible to speak to a rep or anyone at Vodafone about it. For that kind of money you'd at least expect to be able to express your frustration. But they'd rather everyone just left their poor reviews here I guess.

    I needed a data roaming option that covered me in Singapore, Australia and the USA for 2 months. After researching the best options and then going into my local Vodafone store for advice, the Mifi mobile hot-spot device and Global Roaming Plus 5 GB of data sim card seemed like the best choice.

    However, I only successfully got the device to work once during the 2 months I was away. The signal light was constantly on red and it always said there was no network on my device even when in city centres. Only once did the light go green and connect to a local network, even then I couldn’t get any internet to work on my phone. I only used 89 MB out of the 15 GB I paid for. In the 3 different continents and numerous places I tried to use it I couldn’t even get close to a useable connection.

    Overall this cost me over £110 (including the cost of the device which I will clearly never use again given the lack of signal). I am aware that is the cost of the contract which I signed up but for this price I gained no service. I managed to send one email to a hotel about my stay! Every-time I had no wifi and needed directions, train timetables, use of google maps etc (this is what I had bought the Mifi for!) I had to use mobile data on my phone instead (not with Vodafone) and that cost me a fortune - which was exactly what I was trying to avoid in the first place.

    Thought I got a good deal with Vodahone mobile broadband hub-Mifi. Advertised speeds of up to 150mbs. Took it to various places inside and outside - Nowhere near that - Best I ever got was 35 outside.
    It does not as advertised replace your fixed broadband. It is rarely about 8 mbs and often as low as 1.5 which it is now. Absolute rubbish. If you see any good offers for - this walk on by!

    It is the worst customer service I have ever received for anything. They lie, break consumer law, keep you on hold endlessly and have no clue how to resolve the problem. I paid an upfront fee and 3 weeks in have never had mobile broadband . They have no accountability. Do not consider using vodafone

    I signed up for 30GB/month data only , 1 year contract for mobile broadband with Vodafone . This was to use mainly abroad at our holiday home in continental Europe plus on other holidays. Unfortunately I soon realized that I was getting less than the half of the data amount I was paying for. I understand that all other operators (O2, Three etc) clearly state that you can only use a proportion of you data allowance in EU mainland... Vodafone kept saying that they were allowing me to use whole 30GB abroad which was not true . The data were disappearing from my monthly allowance even if we were not switching the mifi device on... Anyway I kept paying for this substandard service for the whole year and stopped my DD as soon as the contract expired. Called them 2 weeks later and was told tha they will still charge me for the whole month after the contact finished as I was supposed to give them 30 days notice. Their T&C clearly state that you can cancel the contract " without termination fee if the service is poor for unreasonable amount of time " Well, the service was "poor" for the whole year... and the contract has ended up already but they still want more money!. STAY AWAY

    I've had no end of problems, promises that engineers would come out, but the service doesn't improve, ridiculously long call wait timed. I've now had zero broadband for 36 hrs and have been waiting on the phone to speak to someone for 30 mins. Customer service staff are always polite & helpful, but the problem is the infrastructure. It's costing me money in call minutes and data to my mobild provider, I am extremely unhappy, I would not use Vodafone for ANYTHING ever again.

    No Internet service for 5 weeks. Waited in on 5*separate occasions for a promised Open Reach engineer visit - 'no show'. Watch this space. So many phone calls, listening to the same old 'yes, this is totally unacceptable, sir' Frankly, I'm lost. I could throw 'I'm a pensioner into the mix!

    Replaced TalkTalk with Vodafone for cost reasons - Vodafone cheaper.Do not make the same mistake! After only 2 weeks of this, frankly unacceptable quality service I shall be terminating the contract the Vodafone (possible in first 30 days).
    Never having thought about speeds etc, before because everything worked fine with TalkTalk, it became immediately apparent that the Vodafone Wifi is hopelessly inadequate. Very variable service with varying speeds and drop out the norm. Smart TV - should I really wait 2 minutes for a connection to Netflix? Too much bufferring. Customer services polite and tried to be helpful but have not fixed the issue.

    Guaranteed speed is nonsense. And there is no mechanism to claim the guaranteed 15% discount for not meeting expected speeds.
    Switched from EE home broadband to Vodafone home broadband. Access to the usual sites Netflix, amazon, Facebook, YouTube all were terribly slow. Support is impossible to get a hold of. The chat online just sits on "loading". From a Vodafone home phone they charge for calling support and never answer.
    As we have Vodafone 4g on mobile we switched to chewing up mobile data. Yes the mobile data rates were faster and more reliable than home broadband.
    They had actually limited the home speed to 15mb but guaranteed 25mb.
    Went through months (yes months) of support. Changed wifi channels (irrelevant). Changes to the google DNS again irrelevant. They promised to send an engineer out to remove the limit within 48hrs. 2wks later still waiting for the engineer and the line limit to be lifted.
    Did I mention there is no way to claim for the 15% discount. It is not in any Vodafone App and the techinical support state they can't authorise discounts.
    And the support has more rigorous security than any banking app I have used. If I contact via the app then they should have the account details. And if they are going to reset the router then they should call the house phone. Complete incompetence.

    Avoid like the plague, no where near the speed advertised. hours of wasted time on the support chat and over an hour on hold on the phone support. Engineer visit scheduled but no one showed. got told they had missed me but I work from home and hadn't left the house at all that day.
