    Internet is slow and unreliable. I hardly ever leave reviews for anything, but this service is utterly terrible. My immediate neighbour gets 5X the broadband speed, and I'm paying for "unlimited fibre"?!! Customer service was helpful once when the service wasn't working at all, they gave all the VF mobile phones in the house unlimited mobile data for a month - which kept my 3 children happy over Christmas. I'll still be switching to another provider the second the contract runs out.

    Attracted by the free line rental, but the speed is so slow. I pay for 76mb, but tested just now and was getting 3mb!
    Ping speed is slow also, meaning my lad is off the Xbox. Usual customer support offering i.e. hopeless

    I went live on Voda BB one month ago. I'd been using plusnet through John Lewis and moved because their cust service was very poor and at one point they input another customer's information into my settings and then ignored me!
    Very very troubling.

    But at least the speeds had always been around 75mb.

    From day 1 Vodafone BB was giving me only 8/9 mbs download ( 8/9 upload too though) on a 37 mb line. 10 days of wasting time testing and calling and speaking to people it eventually went to around 75mbs. However a week or two later it's back to a very consistent 9.5 mb download speed.

    Yet again Voda cust ervice want me to check my connections and reet my router (their std answer to everything) but of course just like last time this makes no difference.

    Their understand and tehnical repertoir is very poor.

    They don't allow me to speak to the real technical people and have now waited 4 days so far and had no imporvement of technical assistance.

    A registerd a complaint and asked for escalation which basically meant I got a amanger to call me with no info whatsoeve and still waiting for help. Ludicrous.

    The people I speak to want to help but they don't have the skils or resources to do anything.

    If you're thinking of VODAFONE - go elsewhere. Very very poor.

    Changed to VD Fibre 76 from BT Infinity 2 in order to save 60% on the price. Excellent communication prior to the change with plenty of explanation. Router arrived a couple of days before activation allowing me to set it up. VD was up and running 10 minutes after connecting the router and has provided solid connection at the same speed as BT. Absolutely no complaints and I'm enjoying the financial savings!

    So looked at various broadband offers after Xmas, thought I'd move from DSL to fibre for less than I'm paying PlusNet. Place order, go away on business find shiny new router to install, check PlusNet router, still working and active to Internet..Install router no service. Vodafone decided to cancel the order on the 3rd of March and not bother to contact me via the 2 numbers and 1 email address available to them. Just got off the phone to a nice lady but decided to not process the order as 'that offer is no longer available', she didn't even know the service costs. Now waiting for a returns bag for shiny router to send back for next victim. Can't complain about the service, I didn't get any.

    Vodafone broadband are utter rubbish. 97-98% of the agents have not got a clue what they are talking about (and this came from a team leader at vodafone broadband).
    1. My 76mbs service went live at the end of november 2016 it took until the beginning of july 2017 to get the speeds i am paying for/stable speeds that don`t fluctuate wildly.
    2.Many Agents are very rude and insulting and tell downright/blatant lies (i have proof of some examnles of this via phone recordings), they promise call backs that do not materialise - i am convinced they promise the callbacks to get you off the phone and gt rid of you.
    3. When i had a email last week saying vodafone are putting their prices up but that i could cancel within 30 days with no charges i grabbed the opportunity and am now leaving for a different company.
    4. I could go on but i am sure anyone reading this has got the picture. LONG AND SHORT OF IT DO NOT HAVE VODAFONE BROADBAND AND THAT IS FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR SANITY.

    SCAM! Very poor quality, it's unusable and expensive! Not only that, but even for 1-month contract you have to give them 30 days notice, so they can charge you another month for something you're not even using. Thieves!

    Hi Everyone
    Not really broadband but will put this up wherever I can as a warning.
    Apologies but I've never complained about a company in this way. I feel that as a 15 year customer of Vodafone my experience over the last years is horrendous.

    Quick summary
    New phone taken out
    2 weeks and several visits to shop
    Eventually working but several of my contacts could only text and not call me
    This got worse over recent months
    Been asking for help for many days
    Office in Alexandria have lied not called back on numerous occasions. In fact never called back. 2 mangers on the same day swearing that they would never let me down. Can't estimate the number of hours spend on my landline. Still no resolution and stuck without a phone.

    Complete havoc and Vodafone employees are actively moving me about because they can't or won't deal with it

    Its been 1 year....Any advice......I'm sure Vodafone wouldn't have been so gracious if I has withheld payment since I received my phone!

    Feel sorry to have to leave such an awful review

    Ps... I have all the managers names but this seems hopeless as well. Their colleagues just refuse to put you through!

    Although the package was sold as "up to 2.2Mps" i think that i have only ever seen the speed hit 2.1 Mbs once in the 6 months that i have had it. I would like to see providers state a guaranteed minimum speed before selling the "best case" scenario as fact.

    I took the plunge and switched from Sky Broadband Unlimited to Vodafone 38 Fibre. I was very happy with my Sky service but Vodafone had a deal that meant I got fibre cheaper than Sky were giving me standard ADSL for.

    The switch over was painless. I was provided their new super duper router and given an activation date in which to hook it all up. They handled everything else with Sky.

    My activation date came, hooked up my router before 8am as directed. By the time I came home from work, it wasn't working (although both green lights were on the top). I rebooted the router and everything sprang into life.

    I was getting a good 37Mbps down and 8-9Mbps up, so I'm happy thus far.

    I've had enough experience with 5GHz (dual band routers) to know 5GHz is a big cause of constant WiFi cut offs, etc. So I switched that mode off and used 2.4GHz only. Signal is great, stability is great. The 2.4GHz speeds are still over and above the 38Mbps internet speeds anyway.

    I had read the many bad reviews and so the switch was not an easy decision. However, I have always had a good experence as a Vodafone Mobile customer and I have been happy with the Broadband so far, but it is early days. I will review again after an extended period.

    Absolute Scam if you are going tot ake the 30 day rolling contract. They will charge you for another 30days "notice" so you would have to cancel the contract the moment you started!

    Customer service not interested at all to help and they just repeat garbage back over and over.

    DO NOT BUY THE 30 Day rolling contract .... SCAM.... Slow speed

    After being with this company for almost 2 34 months It is time for change, the network has become worse, the service is terrible and the reliability is useless on average i have to call their customer services atleast once a month to get them to fix something, i have already had 4 dongles in 2 18 month contract periods due to the dongle breaking (not my fault) pluss you cannot open your nat types for use with Xbox 360 (i have tried everything). if you want mobile broadband dont get it from Vodafone

    I've had vodafone fibre for just under a year. They have just increased the price mid-term but when I rang them up they offered me the initial rate (which is still being offered to new customers) straight away. My only grumble is I think its a bit cheeky in the first place to increase costs for existing customers whilst still offering the lower cost on their website.

    Secondly when I started having some issues with my broadband cutting out I feared the worst reading some reviews. In fairness they were really good. They could track on my account what times it had cut out so that wasn't in dispute, and then talked me through some basic changes which immediately sorted the problem.

    Horrible horrible service, slow speed and incompetent customer service and they'll do everything it takes and lie to make you sign a contract with them. I've been deceived and now have to pay £350 to get the contract cancelled. Be careful people, don't make my same mistake

    Terrible experience. Modem arrived late. Then I was not connected on the day as promised, which is a big deal as I work from home. Customer service was curteous but totally unhelpful. They could only parrot stock replies. Switching faster than you can say Jack Robinson. Stay away. Do not touch this with a ten foot pole.

    Had Vodafone since March and have to say I’m really impressed. Speed and reliability and he and and shoulders above previous suppliers (had plus.net, Sky and BT over the years). A recent issue where my builder had cut the phone line going to the house by accident was sorted by Openreach on behalf of Vodafone within 2 days, free of charge, and we were given 100 GB of additional mobile phone data allowance across our 4 mobiles so we could stay connected.

    Awful!! Wi-fi is pointless as it just drops out when I’m using it so have to rely on my mobile data. Clearly a problem somewhere but all I got from customer services was “we don’t gaurentee wi-fi speed. Speed isn’t an issue, it’s just the constant dropping out even if stood next to the router

    I purchased a Vodafone braodband dongle as I don''t have fixed line broadband at the moment. At a stroke this device has reduced my computer to an infuriating mess of delays and lock-ups and blank pages. I am at one of the highest points in the city and have clear views. My property is also on the first floor so I should have no problem picking up up a signal. In fact the device usually connects with at least three bars. Any broadband speed checker usually reports speeds of up to 1.6Mb but this is belied by the actual real-life performance of the piece of rubbish which can be measured in the low, 'k's'. Even though I have registered the unit with Vodafaone and had the restricted access barr lifted (what a nightmare) I still have to termiante the connection every eight hours or the barr goes back on. Despite profits of over £8,000 million a year don't expect Vodafone to do anything about similar problems if they happen to you. Thanks Vodafone - thanks a lot.

    Went live yesterday Friday 8/4/17, our 9 Sonos devices failed to work immediately resulting in 2 hours of investigation and a router flash from Vodafone. Fixed the immediate problem and then Saturday morning (9/4/17) slow website speed and wired and wireless devices failing to connect. Extensive call with Vodafone and the eventually admitted that *we* were not a normal family and that there were limits on the number of devices that could connect to their router..... Worked around the problem and installed an old router in access point mode the take all the wireless connections which was fine until about 1800 when connectivity failed completely - result= going back to BT as soon as I possibly can as although they were more expensive we had no problems in three years of usage

    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!

    I have had poor speeds intermittently at various times of the day. The wifi in particular drops out for no reason. I have been told to change channels which I tried all now some worse than others but stil having issues. Very very poor support the don't listen or read what info they give the just follow scripts it seems. I complained after 40 minutes on a call asked for manager no manager available asked for formal complaint they had no complaints process. Asked for manager to call back to address my complaint have waited weeks no contact!!!!! Asked to terminate contract so far no response. Spend more money but don't use Vodafone they are bad for your health..

    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.

    DISASTER, TERRIBLE. Sent faulty dongle, spent 11 months trying to get it working by visiting lots of vodafone shops and calling them. Turned out they'd sent me a prototype which wasnt for public use, and now they wont refund me £378.40 for something I didnt use. SHAMEFUL VODAFONE

    POOR SERVICE, POOR COMPANY, THEY WILL NOT LET YOU LEAVE!!

    I and my family have been long standing (20+ years) loyal customers of Vodafone and finally, we are leaving.

    Reasons:

    1. When you are interested in buying a service, Vodafone are great to deal with, they suddenly become your best friends. BUT when you actually do need any help Vodafone is possibly the worst people to deal with. They will not solve your problems, but actually take your time up and then you will find random text messages which you then have to recall Vodafone about to waste more time trying to rectify because you are scared that they have charged you for something.

    2. Coverage is poor and POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. In certain areas there is not a problem, but in my house (i live in the City) the coverage is non-existent and i have to go outside to make a call. So I called Vodafone (again remember i have been with the company for a very long time) and asked if they can send me a signal booster box as i do not get any reception. They said it would be chargeable and it would be cheaper for me to source one from a non-Vodafone shop. They don't really care as whatever happens I still have to pay my contract.

    3. HIDDEN CHARGES and INABILITY TO LEAVE! --> One of the family mobile contracts had recently come to an end so I requested the PAC code (which they tried so hard not to give) and transferred the number over to Virgin mobiles. Vodafone agreed to unlock the handset as the contract had ended. However they didn't do this properly and the Virgin Mobile was unable to be registered with the handset. Finally after around 20 phonecalls and 3 weeks without a mobile phone, Vodafone managed to sort it. All was going well with Virgin Mobile, when suddenly we all started receiving texts from Vodafone saying:
    - "you have turned off content control. If you change your mind log-in to vodafone and update yor settings"
    AND
    - "you have removed the spending limit for using the internet abroad. To limit your spend again, text CAP to 40209 or log-onto Vodafone and change your settings"

    I can tell you that no one had made any changes to any of these settings, Vodafone has made changes and have accused us of these changes.

    The worst part is, that now, myself and the rest of my family are unable to phone the number which has now been registered with Virgin Mobile AND the familiy member can't make a phone call out from her Virgin Mobile either! So not only has Vodafone messed around with our current Vodafone contracts, but has interfered with a number that has already left Vodafone and has nothing to do with Vodafone anymore.

    I contacted Vodafone, they said it should get working in around 1 week!! No apologies, no care, they said that this can happen when you move your number from Vodafone to another provider.

    It is an absolute disgrace. Vodafone took 3 weeks to unlock the phone so that we ca transfer over to Virgin. And now Vodafone have interfered and that Virgin Mobile has been affected where no calls can be received or made.

    So i have decided to finally move my family away from Vodafone's awful service and disgusting customer service.

    Where to go?
    Virgin Mobile seems to be pretty good, EE seems the biggest, O2 are still kicking... 3 probably has the best customer service who are always polite and who do their best to help, but not too sure about their coverage. BUT whatever you do and wherever you go, don't bother with Vodafone.

    Absolute scam, low speed high latency very bad service.
    Wasted hours speaking to assistants with no solutions to improve speeds.
    NOT ONLY THAT you will have to pay 30 days extra after cancel this contract

    No hassle with USB dongle and connecting up from standard Vodafone box. Pay as you go was fine for three years.There was a monthly expiry date and so I'd buy a £15 voucher from shop and from the box would simply type-in the number and I was again connected up to the internet. Then Aug 2013 they brought in data packs, upped the price to £20 and I had to open an online account. I couldn't manage the top-up and went round in circles and always ended up having to get their help in converting my voucher to data. I then had to wait up to an hour (usually) for internet connection.I wondered why they just couldn't tell how it wa done and they kept telling me they were going to update the website. I'd visit the shop and they'd spend 15 minutes connecting up my laptop! Then they advised me to get the tech team to do it by phone. Then it was customer services who did it. Then 14 months later I was told that I couldn't do it online/account top-up myself, that I would ALWAYS have to ring up monthly for them to convert my voucher (or card payment) into my usual 3GB data. As my mobile phone wasn't with Vodafone I had to pay for this at UK rate. I was put through to Indian, African and Scottish people, all friendly and with helpful attitude but have never once got an immediate response to my call (usually all-back) or internet. This month (Nov 2014)they couldn't get me on the internet for two days! This is a long review. It's been a long time frustrated and inconvenienced and I just want you all to be warned. It's PAYG dongle works just dandy ...once you're finally connected!
