    Don't get caught in their 24 month broadband contracts!

    I initially joined Vodafone Broadband for their cheap prices and discount with a mobile contract. I also thought 24 months of cheap contract, why wouldn't i like that?

    So the first install was a bit of a hassle; they didn't update me on the engineer coming round, rescheduled without telling me causing me to loose out on some paid annual leave. Once installed, they had some trouble activating and all in all, it took about 10 days to work once the router was installed. Not great but not too bad considering the trouble I have had with other companies. (just to note; I left their phone contract when I bought a new phone before the next part of this story)

    The second installation was when I was moving house. I notified them two weeks before moving house (18th Feb) and they said they would be able to install it on the 4th March, and to take my current router to the new house and plug it in on the day of installation, then wait for the engineer to arrive between 8am-1pm. This was another waste of a day as I had no notification from vodafone or their engineer confiming the arrival. I called them at 1:30pm (bit eager but they were late, so i thought) and they said they would arrive between 2pm and 8pm.. So i waited till the end of the day and no one arrived.

    The next day, I got a "good bye" email from Vodafone. They had cancelled my contract. I spent a couple of hours on the phone asking what was happening with my internet and they blamed it on an internal error, so they then put in another order and told me it would now be installed on the 8th March. Not great but it could be worse.. I get that with Covid etc, things are a bit of a struggle. It gets to the 7th March and they call me to confirm the internet will be installed on the 16th March.. 16th?! Okay fine, so 16th it is. 15th March comes along and they cancelled my contract again! So that is 4 times it has been delayed now, (4th, 5th, 8th, 16th March). I called them again and spent ages being chucked around to different departments.. At this point I wanted to cancel and just go with someone else, but I am stuck in a contract with 14 months still to go, so that would cost nearly £300 to cancel. Yep, they've got me by the nads here. I just have to deal with whatever they throw at me. Anyway. I finally get through to someone and he gets my fustration and can see that my contract has been cancelled over and over and he believes that he has fixed it. He "guarentees" the install by the 26th March. Finally! Someone gets it and it's all fixed! I'll book another day off work so I can be in for it and finally get this sorted.

    I got a message today from Vodafone confirming the internet will go active 8th April. Ha! We'll see..

    So yeah.. Next time I get broadband, I'm going for a 12 month contract.

    Shockingly bad customer service, which I unfortunately have to deal with due to connection issues. Every bad customer service cliche is here - good luck staying sane when trying to deal with them. The automated call-direction software alone will transport you into a kafkaesque nightmare.

    Unfortunately I am unable to give zero stars on this review.
    I had a problem for 2 weeks which I ended up telling them what the problem was (a faulty router). They could not get to the problem. I wasted 15 hours of my life with these idiots.
    Vodafones tech service, reliability and complaints departments are less than useless. Dreadful and rude support from undertrained individuals who only want to pass you on. When you complain it takes months and you a lied to constantly. If you are on the line to complaints they are not allowed to put the phone down on you so you can keep them engaged in the conversation forever. I have asked to be released from the contract but they won't do it, they offer compensation which changes depending on who you speak to. My advice avoid, avoid avoid.

    Really poor reception. I have 2 bedroom flat and yet there are so many blackout spots in a small 2 bedroom flat.
    In addition I get constant access denied messages, and the broadband constantly drops out. Absolutely awful customer services, where you are kept on hold for hours. The customer service agent understands nothing and you are constantly passed from one department to another. You have to have several times to get any issued resolved, however at least 50% of the time issues aren't resolved at all as Vodafone don't know what to do, such as access denied messages. Preferred my service with BT,and talk talk before that. Really annoyed as Vodafone are total waste of money and waste of space. Avoid avoid avoid.

    This is the most frustrating broadband I've ever had. I'm supposedly on superfast broadband and generally I cant complain. However the dropping of broadband is horrendous. Every night wifi disconnects no less than 3x and then it takes a good 2 minutes to reconnect. This is appalling during the day when I'm on meetings and wifi disconnects and takes so long to connect. By the time it does I've lost so much from the meetings. I was promised super service and super broadband. Clearly I need to look at alternatives.

    broadband=disconnects once between 1h and 6h
    service= what service? cant even freakin acces my account on their website

    Always drops out. It's that bad that I use my phone's data from O2 instead of connecting to Wi-Fi. In fact, it's that bad I think I'm going to pay them over £200 to cancel my contract early. Virgin was much better with no such issues. Steer clear and save yourself the hassle.

    After upgrading my broadband speed, I discovered that they had handled the change by giving me a new number and charging me for two lines. I then spent 68 minutes talking to customer service. The first person thought my number (01455.....) was a mobile number! They cannot do anything for a week and after a week has elapsed they expected me to contact them again. No doubt to repeat the previous miserable 68 minute experience. So currently, no one can call me since my original number has been discontinued. They later suggested that I report the problems via Facebook. Again a complete waste of time.

    My Vodaphone home broadband went live on Feb 15. Since then I am having to do manual resets multiple times per day. The signal drops and the only way to get it back is to unplug the router for a couple of minutes, and reboot it. This is obviously pretty pointless for home security devices, not to mention a high annoyance and inconvenience. I have made many attorneys to contact vodaphone. The live chat is next to useless. If you are lucky enough to speak to a human they say they are going to call you back and never do. I am currently trying to get released from my contract as I do not see why I should pay 23 quid a month for a service that Vodaphone simply can’t supply. My advice don’t get suckered in by the promise of great speeds at competitive prices, oat a little more and use a reputable company.
