    Download Vodafone broadband app for phone, go WiFi section, and change your channel to one no other person is using. That's where all the problems lie, all broadband companies are using the same channel numbers​ which causes interference.

    Do not get had Vodafone broadband. I've had it for 1 week and I'm going back to bt. the speed is atrocious speed Ranges from 0.1 to 6mb and signal drops all the time router is not as good as bt hub 6 the range is dreadful. worst mistake I ever did cost me £60 to go back to BT and the £25 it cost to activate Vodafone do not risk it.

    Most reviews tend to be negative, because people need somewhere to vent. I know plenty of people who've had significant problems with Vodafone so they're obviously not perfect....but nor is any other company. However - I thought I'd share my experience of switching from BT standard to Vodafone 38mbs fibre.

    Frankly...it was superb. Plenty of communication about what was happening and when. They dealt with BT and all I got from BT was "This is when you're leaving and this is the date of your final bill". On the day; BT stopped....Vodafone didn't start. I phoned Vodafone customer service (based in Glasgow for Broadband) and they were excellent. Ended up needing an engineers visit the following week. So, because i'm with Vodafone on mobile; they gave me 50GB of data to use my phone as a hotspot whilst I waited for the engineer. 4G tethering meant I had excellent broadband the entire time.
    Engineer arrived (Openreach) and told me the phone line had been wrongly connected at the exchange (by Openreach). Took him 20 minutes to sort it out. Broadband kicked in within the hour and it's been consistently great since. broadband speed tests show I'm getting everything promised...and all for over £10 a month less than BT standard 17mbs.
    So I'm a very happy customer and happy to share the experience.

    I switched in November 2016 with the promise that my broadband service would be better than my previous supplier and I had 5 months of shockingly bad customer service including Vodafone staff lying to me, not following through on promises and staff blaming each other for poor service. My broadband speed was much slower than I've ever had with BT or Sky and non existent on numerous occasions. Vodafone blamed it on so many things that I lost count and I spent hours on the phone trying to resolve it - they even blamed it on my computer and told me to take it to PC world to get it fixed ! I switched back to Sky and this morning after plugging my sky router box in no more than 10 minutes later my broadband signal is working perfectly again. I would not recommend switching to Vodafone broadband to anyone.

    Got Vodafone broadband in November. Had service for a week theb cut out. Then I was told thw earlier it could be fixed is on Christmas eve. Then come Christmas eve they said there was a problem with the phone like. A week later had an gas engineer out who fixed the line and the internet was working. Lasted for 2/3 weeks then cut out again. When chasing it up I was told it would take 3 days as per the contract. 3 days later I was told that the line had gone down. Had an engineer come out 10 days later who said that the line was fine now and the number had changed. I didn't want my number changed. I was not reimbursed any money that I had paid for a sub par service.

    The advertised download speed with my package is 38mps. I hae just tested it and it averages 21. I live literally 100ft from the exchange, so thats miles of fibre and 100ft of copper. When I call to complain they tell me the problem must be in my flat. The router is plugged directly into the socket on the wall, but if i test the speed using my laptop inches from the router there is no improvement. Customer service just say they are sending the signal at 40mps and refuse to send an engineer to investigate. It's not cheap, the customer service is awful and I can't even stream iPlayer or YouTube reliably.

    I cannot believe I was foolish enough to believe that this amateurish home broadband service provider could provide the same or better service than BT.. I regret the day I signed up for this diabolical service. With BT I was getting anything between 38 & 52 Mbps for the whole year. With Vodafone I receive anything between 40 and 0.42 Mbps ..... yes 0.42 Mbps! The majority of the time it is between 26 and 12 Mbps! At the time of writing this review it is constantly under 1 Mbps! When we started with Vodafone in Sept 2016 we were receiving 50 Mbps then, about a month later it reduced to anything between 38 and 20 Mbps. It has gradually reduced over the months (now March 2017) to its current speed of under 1 Mbps. I have contacted Vodafone technical support who are blaming my set-up at home for the diabolical speeds. If this was the case, how was it that I was receiving 50mbps for around a month when I first started the agreement and the 'set-up' I have now hasn't changed from the outset. Also, why was I, with BT, receiving between 38 and 52 Mbps with the same 'set-up'? Let's face it Vodafone, you are going back to the same attitude you had with your mobile phone customers in the 'noughties' i.e. You're are with us now.... tough! If you are thinking about joining Vodafone home broadband I really wouldn't bother if I were you.... go for another provider and pay for the line rental...... it will be with it in the long-run.

    I switched to Vodafone Broadband last year from Sky.

    First of all, the switch was seamless. I received the router in plenty of time and the service was turned on exactly when I was advised.

    Since then, I am pleased to say that the down/up speeds have been way faster than Sky giving pretty reliable downloads of between 35-65 Mb/s.

    Last off, I recently had an outage caused by Virgin Media putting a spade through some fibre in the street and the customer service I received was excellent.

    I thoroughly recommend it.

    Another tale of woe! How can Vodafone get it so wrong so often?

    I had a nightmare trying to sign up online so in the end I phoned up. After 2 hours of messing around online it was all sorted in 15 minutes on the phone.

    The good bits - the router turned up on time, the line when live and worked first time. I have 6 devices connected to the router and it hasn't fallen over yet.

    The bad bits - they put me on the wrong package and when I told them, they denied it, said the slow speed was because of DLM....I am not that stupid.

    Get to the online chat 3 days later and explain the problem, he says that I am on the 38mb package, so 34mb is quite good, shame I signed up for the 76mb package.

    Then they want me to sign up for another 18 month contract to change my package, then they don't want to honour the £28 per month, including the £3 per month discount. It will also be another 2 weeks before they can change.

    I reluctantly change and wait the 48 hours to get the email confirmation, I don't get it....I phone and they got the order wrong, it will be another 48 hours and then 14 working days.

    Maybe I am the lucky one, at least it will only be 3 to 4 weeks before I get what I pay for....

    I gave customer services 3 stars because they are nice people and polite and doing the best they can, they just work for a terrible company.

    Don't switch to Vodafone. Went online to change providers because sky were getting to expensive (but I always received brilliant broadband with them) saw Vodafone, same deal but half the price. Put my phone number in & postcode. All fine nothing to be done. I got half price router at £25 so I was happy. Router should arrive in a few days & im good to go. Got an email saying they didn't have any routers available so I had to wait another 10days, not a problem still happy to wait. Then got an email saying there's a problem & they have been trying to contact me for 4 days & where I haven't responded they've cancelled my order. I've been a Vodafone mobile customer for over 10 years & it was all going through the same billing account so they got my mobile number & house phone both with voicemails, so no one tried to ring me. Any way rang them to see what was going on. They said they couldn't use my line & I had to pay £60 to get a new line put in & now I've missed the deal so full price for the router £50. By this time sky has been cancelled. So I refused to pay any more & said I wouldn't have left sky if I had to pay £110. They were good enough to honour the original deal at £25. Which I was pleased they did so thank you Vodafone. Anyway I've been with them over a month now & the wifi is terrible! On YouTube, a couple of seconds in it starts buffering. Any websites take ages to load, it's crap. Dial up when I was a kid was better. I've rang them 5 times trying to get this sorted. The 1st 4 people were brilliant, polite, easy to understand & very helpful. I never waited over a minute to speak to someone really, really good customer service. The 5th bloke was crap. Every adviser had put a note on my file of what they had done, what I told them. So each person in turn would know what's going on & save me repeating myself. The 5th bloke just said "all the others were wrong, wifi is a privilege. We only guarantee fixed line broadband so I should just cancel". I would have give them 5 star customer service but the last fella ruined it. Vodafone did exstend my 30day cancellation time to help me sort the problem.

    I have been with vodafone for nearly a year and cannot wait for my contract to finish! The initial changeover went like a dream but unless you only want ethernet and perhaps a couple of wifi devices, I would strongly advise looking elsewhere. I suddenly started to get problems with wifi devices suddenly disconnecting. All I get from the customer services is that my contract is for the broadband only and wifi is a 'curtesy' service! They suggest that I only ever have a maximum of 5 devices on at once and switch off the wifi on TV's mobiles etc when not being specifically used! I should also use the app to make sure that I havent forgotten to switch anything off! We had more of the family at home when I was with sky and must have had about 15 devices connected at times, with no problems at all. The router also just cuts out on occasions and needs rebooting. Vodafone won't let you use another router. In future I will happily pay a bit more for a decent service

    I signed up in January online to the 76mb package, it was supposed to get actived on the 24th of January which then got pushed to the 4th of Feb, no biggy, then the router turned out to be faulty so I had to wait for a replacement and sent the other back, then when i finally got it plugged in turns out I'm on the 38mb package so I rang up to be told tomorow it'll change over, ring up tomorow and they say the operations team will ring you within 10 days. 10 days pass, no call, no email. A day later I get a text saying it'll upgrade within 24hours, it didn't. I keep ringing everyday to get told tomorow everytime and also thirty pound credit one time to compensate apparently. We're now 6 days past then and no upgrade, I called today to be told tomorow again, she also offered me thirty pound credit again to which I replied I'd already been offered that to which she replied that I haven't got that basically and she can't see any evidence of that ever being offer to me on the system. Seems abit of a joke to me, the customer service are friendly but nothing is gets done.

    Wish there was a minus star ....where do I start . Ok went from Sky to Vodaphone on the 31st January promise fibre for a lower price just plug in and switch on .....17 days later it worked although not working to great.The technical team and customer services promised to phone you back only once this occurred in the 17 days without service ,they kept blaming BTopen reach when the engineer came from BT this type of fault is normally rectified within 48 hours really evident that vodaphone didn't raise a ticket - my advice stick with a trusted brand ...I wrote to the director to fix my issues

    I have had this opportunity to speak to this gentleman who is currently in South Africa (Cape Town), his name is Anthony Ford, this guy has been an absolute life saver to assist me with few problems that I have had recently, since the problem was not looking to get resolved within a day, he actually called me back the following day as he promised to resolve my query, I strongly recommend every network to actually consider taking someone as Anthony to be hired in their team in order to have satisfied customers!

    By far the best FTTC provider that I have used. Vodafone is my third provider. I have been with them since July 2015 and I don't intend to move away from them given that I have served my minimum contract period.

    Customer Service is first class. What problems (2 of them) I have experienced have been resolved very quickly with follow-up calls from CSR to ensure all is well. As a Vodafone Mobile customer, when my line was down caused by third party cable damage in my area, they added extra data to my mobile allowing me to remain online whilst my line was repaired.

    The router is superb along with the app allowing you to control and prioritise your broadband to devices.

    Above all, an excellent package, well priced with great service. I have recommended to family and friends some have switched and experienced the same service as me. I will continue to recommend as I have always found Vodafone to be one of the better companies to deal with.

    Came home from work to discover Vodafone Broadband is not working. I will try to keep it short, below outlines the appalling service:

    Weds 1st - i called to report a fault and spoke to Rob he tried to resolve the issue, had me unscrewing wall boxes etc for over 2 hours. He could not resolve the issue so advised he would have to escalate the problem to the Tech dept which could take 48hrs.

    Fri 3rd - having heard nothing and Broadband still not working I called & spoke to a woman who advised me that she had just been advised the system was down and had been for 2 hours and could be down for the rest of the day! I asked, how long she had been at work, she confirmed most of the eve, so i explained that surely she would have known the system was down unless she had been skiving for the last two hours and as a result i believed she was lieing to me, she didnt know what to say! She advised me that she could not help. I requested a Manager call me, she told me Managers do not talk to customers before having 24 hrs to investigate any issues! I asked if the Tech dept were open over the weekend, she confirmed the Tech dept were open until 9pm on weekends. She also advised me (even though the system was apparently down) That Rob, who i had initially spoke to on Weds 1st had failed to raise the fault request correctly and so a new request had to be raised.

    Sat 4th spoke to a guy at approx 6:20pm in the hope of talking to the Tech dept but he advised that the Tech dept closed at 6pm and there was nothing he cld do, i explained i was told on Fri that the Tech Dept worked until 9pm and i was not happy, he suggested i cld change suppliers!

    He then advised that my fault report had been 'picked up' and the update was that my line was showing that i was connected to a BT Hub and so possibly had a crossed line! He assured me he would get someone to call me on Sun.

    Sun 5th spoke a woman who told me my fault report had been worked on by an Engineer but she cld not up date me! The Tech Dept were still open but the Engineer dealing with it was not available! She agreed to get a Manager to call me by close of business to update me. She advised me not to work from home on Mon and if i had not heard anything by 9pm on Mon i shld not plan to work from home on Tues either!

    Mon 6th called Customer Relations - after apologising for the terrible service and assuring me she would get my issues resolved I was transferred to a Tech Manager who was useless, he repeated what i had been told on Sat, apparently my wifi was connected to a BT Hub so there was possibly a crossed line, however, the Engineer dealing with my fault was unavailable and so there was nothing that cld be done until 7th Tues. I asked to be put back through to Customer Relations as i felt i had achieved nothing! He didnt have the ability to do so, so gave me the Tel No. for Mobile phone complaints!

    I called Customer Relations using the Tel No i had used previously to find they were closed!

    7th Tues I called Customer Relations, after many apologies, they put me through to a chap in a Dept (not sure which one). He started off telling me that I had not received a call back from anyone because it takes 24hrs to update a Tel No and i had apparently updated my Tel No on the 5th, i told him that was rubbish as Rob had called me on weds 1st on both my landline & mob, just another excuse for lack of comms! He then spoke to the Tech Dept and apparently, Amy told him that there had been a number of outages (not in my area) that had caused a back log, my ticket had been picked up but not actioned. After a rant from me, he went back to Tech Dept.
    then asked me what hub i had I confirmed I had a Vodafone Hub.
    I was then passed on to Alex Lead Advisor in leeds on Karls Team he advised that a Tech person would call me today and that he would call me back at 4pm to confirm i had received a call.

    7th Tues - 11:10 am - William 2nd Line, Tech Team Manager in Scotland called to explain that apparently, a BT Engineer had worked on our local box on Thurs 2nd Feb to set up a new BT line in the area and had disconnected my line! I explained my I had reported my fault on Weds 1st so how could that be, i was advised their work logs only go back so many days so work by a BT Engineer could have been carried out on the 1st!!!! Ultimately, an engineer will need to visit my property to trace the line!

    An appointment is booked for Thurs 9th!

    This has been an absolute nightmare, I have spent hours on the phone and every call bar 1 has been instigated by me! I have missed 3 days work from not being ablevto work from home, I have been lied to, promised call backs and still failed to speak to a Manager and apparently, it is BT's fault! My advice is to Stick with paying line rental and stay with a company that has a better Customer Service record because Vodafones is truly appalling!

    Vodafone router is not compatible with Sonos, clearly they don't mention this in a sales pitch. After 2 days of trying to connect my Sonos I found a long forum stating it's a know problem with the Vodafone hardware and still no fix after a year. Vodafone customer service were fully aware and advised me to leave while in my cooling off period as could be a very long time before resolved.
    Wi-fi connection also unstable. They only state they are a wired broadband service and don't support wi-fi. Certainly not up to date with technology.

    Dont be tempted by price they offer... For the price you get a substandard router which will cut out as soon as more than 5 or 6 devices are connected. Vodafone have confirmed that the router can only handle 7 devices at once and i should switch my devices off when not using them. They also will not give you the passwords required to connect your own better quality router to improve the situation.
    When i can get connected the speeds have been as advertised just dont look at your mobile phone whilst streaming a movie or you lose your internet conmection for 10 minutes while the router resets itself.
    Very poor product

    If I could give half a star I would, even no star.

    The customer service advisors are absolutely useless, cannot correct/amend bills, can't listen, very robotic with answers (sounds like they are giving answers from a sheet of paper) we have had to cancel our DD to sort out a simple overcharged invoice which Vodafone's incompetent staff messed up in the first place instead of charging for a early upgrade they charged full price for the device.
    So far it has been 6 and a half weeks and I have made numerous calls and wrote 2 letters to The Customer Relations office. The Customer Relations office are more useless than watching paint dry they don't sort out issues however they are very well trained to get on your nerves, you end up training them!!! Bunch of muppets wasting time is what they are paid for. There's so many call centres all over the world that they can't find call recordings so they make the customer look like a liar.
    I fail to understand what the fascination of cheap labour is when it was simpler when every thing was in the same place and call recordings could be found?
    The Indian advisor told me that there are NO managers or supervisors available to which I said so staff are left to do whatever they want then hmm no wonder customers receive such bad service.
    If your call goes to India just hang up and re-dial until the call goes to UK or South Africa.
    I have a business line with Vodafone and find their service atrocious beyond belief. Where you could be making money for your business you end up spending valuable time talking to numpties. After all our business lines come to an end we will definitely be leaving Vodafone. For the rates they charge I would expect far better service.

    Switched from uber expensive BT has soon as Fibre was available in my area and what can i say.
    Vodafone took care of everything and the switch over was totally seemless, everything was up and running on the day stated.

    I'm on the 78MB fibre package, my guaranteed speed is 76MB which is delivered consistantly my upload is 20MB.

    Well done Vodafone for providing a brilliant product and super customer service who kept me informed every step of the process.

    Unacceptable service, avoid

    Hi all
    Normaly i wouldent write a review about a bad experience as i belive that everyone makes mistakes and need the oppertuinty learn from them and change there customer service experience but from the way i have been treted by vodafone latly is simply unaccseptable, i have been with them for 14 years and was contacted a few month back by there 'rewards' team offering vodafone broadband, having recently moved i thought id give them a try, after agreeing an competive package i had the rooter dilivered on time no problem, this is where the problems started.
    After reciving an email with my go live date and engineer appointment i waited 3 weeks due to the easter bank holiday wich was fine as this was the agreed date, when the go live date arrived no engineer and since i required a box fitting i couldent simply plug it in, after 3 lengthy phone conversations and several promised call backs that were not delivered i was getting a little annoyed to say the least, i then booked virgin media in as i had lost faith it vodafones capability, vodafone then offered me a cheep package by means of compensation wich was fine so i canceled virgin.
    I was then booked in again for another engineer vist bearing in mind that vodafone are already in breach of contract, this visit was again in 3 weeks time, again i waited for my go live date and this time and fitted a box and set up the broadband but low and behold the router would not connect. After more phone calls and promised call backs another enigneer was booked for the folling week, after checking the exchange he said vodafones card needed resetting and vodafone should have picked this up, suffice to say i was verry displeased at this point but at least i had broaband, in the time i took vodafone to saught out this mess i had no option but to use my mobile data as somtimes i have to send and recive emails from home, so now my bill is £245, i called vidafone again to get the data charges removed but was met with what i describe as sheer incompitence as they said the could not remove the data charges, i am now canceling phone and broadband with vodafone, the long and short of this story is avoid vodafone at all costs as after putting up with 14 years of poor signal, bad customer service, broken promises and sheer incompitance i am putting in a complaint to the FCA.
    Thanks for reading

    I do not recommend
    I first ordered Vodafone home broadband several weeks ago. I was informed I would receive the router and hear shortly re my installation but all in all it will take approx 2 weeks . After 3 weeks I had not heard anything so I rang to chase and learnt they had cancelled my order due to the sales agent not processing it properly . They actually cancelled my order 3 times . I received an apology and 1 months free line rental and was told the would now expedite the installation . A couple of weeks went by and not heard again so again contacted Vodafone to learn appointment booked in and I needed to be ther but they hadn't booked it with me or let me know . Anyway I took the day off work , lost income only for them to not attend . I am fuming . I have contacted them but it is another 2 weeks . They had rescheduled without my knowledge . This has cost me dearly . I have also just learnt that they have not credited my account the 1 month as agreed even though two separate agents confirmed they had , obviously lied. and not willing to try and get them out earlier . I was dumped through from department to department , lied to and kept on hold for 2 periods in excess of 45 minutes . They do not care about there customers . I understand John Lewis now offer broadband and they are very customer focused so probably would have been a better decision to of chose them

    Awful, don't waste your time! We switched from BT to Vodafone after a good offer was emailed to me because I am a Vodafone mobile customer. After 2 weeks, I had still not received a router so I had to call up to find out what was going on. They offered to send another one out or I could go into a Vodafone store and pick it up, which I thought would be the best option to ensure I get it on time as my 'go live' date was now only a few days away. Went into Vodafone store to collect it only to find the staff in there could not authorise and activate the router. They had to call customer service and after waiting 30 minutes for them to get through to someone I walked out as I had wasted enough time with this already. I called up to cancel the deal as I was no longer interested in going with Vodafone after this. However a few days later I was still receiving emails and texts from Vodafone telling me my service will be activated soon! I phoned up yet again to establish if the service had been cancelled. They assured me it has however the next day I signed up with Plusnet and they sent me a message telling me they could not complete the order because Vodafone still have a stop on the line! Just unbelievable and really wish I had not gone with Vodafone. Needless to say, I will be also cancelling my vodafone mobile contract because of this.

    Although I can't fault the broadband and home phone switchover, their Home Broadband customer service is appalling!

    I am unable to access any online details for my new broadband account and they have managed to block any access to my online mobile account. Trying to call them is a joke with the options taking you round in circles without connecting you to a real person. The webchat is next to useless and only made the situation worse. In desperation, I have emailed the CEO, Jeroen Hoencamp and asked him to rectify the situation. My original email to him was 9 days ago and as of this morning, I haven't received a reply nor any contact at all from Vodafone customer service. I have emailed him again today. Let's see what happens now.

    Having had Vodafone for 3 months now, and throughout of the last 11 weeks, i have experienced several problems.
    Its the worst of all, general attitude of support with a huge lack of customer service.

    Never have i experience so poorly service.
    I have been customer at TalkTalk as well - and even their service is rated better.

    Such a shame! It could have been so good, but when their 2nd line team just closes tickets without faults being fixed, with a comment of "your router looks stable now, and have been for the last 24 hours" - it is very frustrating.
    Trying then to call back is just impossible Their IVR doesn't let you enter your customer number, and after endless attempts, puts you over to mobile, who don't understand fixed line.

    Many a times, i have tried to escalate the issues, but just no reaction from their "Resolution team".
    I have once been able to speak with a team leader, but i might as well have spoken to my neighbours 4 year old.

    I have only experience incredibly poor service, and next to that, the invoicing comes different - my original offer was free for 6 months, then 5/month.
    From having paid £10 months down to now this month £2,50 for 12 months - i am not really sure, where we are at.
    Martin Lewis from MoneysavingExpert have in this weeks email, an article about how poorly Vodafone's service is. Is it VERY poorly, so if you get the opportunity, run away and save your good mood and patience.

    A bit of technical information:
    They will cap upload at 18meg download, 1meg upload.
    SNR will be set to 9dB as minimum.
    Yet with this high SNR, the line often fails - however, the biggest problem is the feeling of the exchange is heavily congested - it shouldn't, with the use of their own very high speed network. But it does, and it is awful. The tech teams will NOT go into any discussion about this. Instead, you are forced to far about with changing wireless channels, trying different network cables in different ports, trying different filter. Never a single time, they have wanted to look at their own part of the network. So it's either you or BTOR, that have the fault NEVER them. Despite giving ping and trace route results that clearly lead to so problems, they offer no comments to it at all.

    If you can leave, do so.
    If you consider to opt in with them - please, please re-consider and save yourself for the hassle.

    Appallingly bad. Avoid Vpdafone at all costs.

    When I contracted with them they assured me that my exchange and line would be able to handle the 76mbps download speeds. Shortly after installation I rang to complain and they put me off ewith some tests. Today I was getting 13Mbps rang again and they have now said my exchange and line are not capable of handling the speed. I tried to cancel my contract on the basis that they had sold me something they should have known they could not provide and they have told me sorry you can't because more than 30 days have expired. Yet in their instructions they say it can take up to 30 for the speed diagnostics to be completed and we should not worry or turn the router off! Wow talk about a scam. A totally unethical company. NEVER AGAIN !!!

    Wow I can't believe some of the reviews set up Internet and a fantastic and extremely low cost deal and I'm getting fast speeds then I got with Virgin media and sky this broadband makes the others look like amateurs, I know it's new but all the teething problems seem to have gone now straight online no drop in connections extremely fast and by fast I mean lightning the fact they are the only internet provider in the uk that gives you two ports so if the exchange goes down they can change your ports I have taken this because a few family members have it and it really is awesomeness absolute awesomeness if you want it for even cheaper ring the cancellations department and they offer it free for 12 months so let me repeat free broadband for 12 months wow I know right any way guys get on it!!!

    This broadband provider is absolutely rubbish in this area. I never had a problem with my previous one, then Vodafone promised me a cheaper deal, and now I can see why. Avoid.
