    Don't usually write reviews but felt Vodafone are having a hard time here, so thought worth putting in a positive review for those who are not sure. I joined Fibre 76 this month, which took around 2 weeks from placing my order. All I can say is not one single problem from signing up to writing this e-mail. They kept me informed right the way through the process, equipment arrived well in time of connection and since being connected It's very stable (no disconnects) and I'm getting very good reliable speeds in both upload and download for a fraction of the price I paid with BT, who were absolutely useless in all aspects (Customer service being the worst) during issues I had.

    Although I had my reservations because of the reviews on this site, I have no regrets switching and based on my own experience would recommend them.

    Within four days of ordering vodaphone broadband it arrived. Set up took less than 10 mins. Each cable has a colour labelling for ease of use. Never before have I experienced such sped of dlivery and effortless connection. Wonderful.

    This single star may, to some, appear a bit harsh; but I can guarantee these people have ever been foolish enough to use this company for broadband. When we first started using Vodafone as a broadband provider we were getting approximately the speed they had agreed to provide us with. Then after about 6-8 weeks we started to get very poor broadband speeds (between 0.4 to 20 odd Mbps. The 20 Mbps may sound pretty good to some of you, but we signed up for 38 Mbps! I have contacted their technical support (a bit of a joke as by definition 'support' would imply some sort of assistance!) and they blamed the low speeds on our setup at home. This 'setup' they refer to is the same setup we had when we were with BT, only they gave us almost 50 Mbps! We also get regular drop-outs of service (a few times per day). All-in-all if you are thinking of saving a few quid every month by going with Vodafone, I would think again. Because the savings would not be worth the infuriating hassle this incompetent company provides!

    Swapped from BT infinity 2, as the vodaphone was a lot cheaper.

    Had lots of connection issues especially on mobile devices.
    Speed very good at router (66Mb/s) but achieving nothing like that on wifi linked devices (even when 50cm away)
    Apps were not loading videos (BBC, Imgur etc)

    Spoke with customer support, updated firmware, updated phone, turned off firewall - still no joy.

    Websites can take 20 secs to load and regularly freeze, so a pretty much un useable

    Decided to go back to BT as still within my 30 days trial.
    Cannot recommend

    I'm new to Vodafone I've had the home broadband a few weeks and I've had no issues at all I've constantly had a good service and can't Slag vodafone off at all
    I didn't know what to get when choosing broadband so chose vodafone as I'm on pay as you go and tbh I'm glad I did everyone I know is either on sky or BT and there always moaning about something or other.
    Don't knock until you try that's my advise.

    I was concerned by all the negative reviews I'd read, but my experience has been great.

    I switched to Vodafone after my previous provider increased the price. As a Vodafone mobile customer, they offered me 38mbps fibre for less than I was already paying for standard broadband, which was a great deal.

    They cancelled my existing provider for me, which made the switching process very simple.

    The switchover wasn't seamless as something went wrong on the scheduled day and the issue had to be referred to Openreach. But, as a Vodafone mobile customer, they gave me 50gb extra mobile data (with the promise of more if the problem couldn't be fixed quickly) so I could use my phone as a hotspot. This tided me over nicely until the problem was fixed in 4 days, without the need for an engineer visit.

    Since then, I've been really impressed. I consistently get download speeds of at least 32mbps (despite my previous provider citing the phone lines into my building as an excuse for slow speeds). The connection has been very stable too.

    The Vodafone router is a vast improvement on my old provider's. The Wi-Fi now covers every corner of my home, eliminating some annoying blackspots. Their app for controlling the router is really handy too.

    I realise others have had worse experiences - but, based on my own in London, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Vodafone.

    VF called me and offered me a deal that seemed to good to be true if I switched my broadband to them from Sky. Alas it was too good to be true! Every night, despite theoretically paying for unlimited BB my broadband either goes down all together or becomes very erratic. I paid £6.99 for a NOW TV Sports pass tonight and the connection dropped after 9pm. Pricks

    Recommend going for another broadband than Vodafone, a f you go for Vodafone, you'll regret it, playing online, disconnects all the time, that's even with a wired connection, and it took about half an hour, just to send this, via my iPhone, as Vodafone, useless, my EE data runs faster

    I signed up for Fibre 76 with a promise from the shop of 1 pound connection fee and a download speed of min 62 and max 76. A letter arrived from Vodafone welcoming me with the statement 'This letter and enclosed booklet make up your agreement with us,....' the letter states that the connection fee is 49 pounds and the speed is min 33.5 and max 45.41. Clearly these were not the terms agreed. A complaint using Vodafone's only available avenue which is e-mail has produced no response although the website promises a reply within 2 days if possible or 5 working days maximum. So far the period is 7 working days! A call back to the Vodafone shop was met with indifference, comments that everyone had the same complaint and that replies to complaints could take 7 MONTHS to get a reply. Having today received a text message from Vodafone welcoming me I rang the freephone number provided for queries, the polite English speaking call assistant explained lots of people were having the same billing problem and he could not comment on the download speeds promised, regarding the e-mail complaint not being answered he suggested I contact the complaints department by the only available means ie by e-mail to complain my complaint had not been answered - that seems a exercise in futility. NOT GOOD SERVICE VODAFONE - NIL POINTS

    After being approached by Vodafone offering free line rental, we were tempted away from BT (who had consistently deliver 50mb+ without ever having an issue) purely as a money saving exercise. We like many rarely use the landline so free line rental made good financial sense. I opted for the 76mb premium service from Vodafone, this guaranteed 50mb. After install, we noticed that simple things like streaming Amazon and downloading from sky often wouldn't work due to poor speed, not some thing you'd expect with a promised 50mb. On checking, at best it would make 20mb, often as low as 12mb. We spent hours on the phone to tech support trying to resolve it for the 6 months we've had it, new routers,Ethernet cables, firmware updates, still never getting above 20mb. After a while Vodafone would go quiet on me and I've have to constantly chase them. So after the 4th BT open reach engineer visit I have given up, it appears BT are providing however it is getting throttled back by Vodafone and they simply can't / won't provide me with the promised / contracted speed I am paying for. They have offered me early release from contract and £49 compensation as they claim they are providing me with 76mb and it's not their fault that by the time it reaches me it is only 20mb. Essentially Vodafone are advertising and charging for a service they simply cannot provide. Shocked and appalled by the lack of customer service. Would not recommend to my worst enemy.

    I am going to eat humble pie here. I had a terrible experience with a Vodafone Store at Braehead (Glasgow), and I was extremely vexed by the lack of any response to an online complaint I had raised with Vodafone, within the 5 day window that Vodafone promises. I was on the horns of dilemma with cancelling an impending Vodafone Fibre Broadband connection despite the risk of losing a market leading offer on telephone and broadband connection. I gave vent to my feeling here on this site a couple of days ago. However, I decided to hold my nerve and go through with the switch over from BT, which happened yesterday night at midnight. Yesterday I got an email from Vodafone asking if I would ring up a number, which I did today. After taking a few more details, they confirmed that they had carried out an investigation around my complaint, and wanted to apologise for the poor service in this instance. As a gesture of goodwill, they waived one month's SIM charges.

    As for the Broadband connection, I called up Vodafone to let them know that I was struggling with getting online even though the telephone line was working perfectly. It was explained to me that an engineer from Openreach would have to physically connect me up at the local cabinet, and to tide me over the short delay of a maximum of 1 day, I was offered 50GB of complimentary data allowance to tether our devices to. On the 4G network, this was blazingly fast enough. Earlier than expected, I've now got connected up within 9 hours of my morning call, and the speeds are properly eye watering - 74 Mbps download and 17 Mbps upload.

    I am taking the trouble of correcting the record here for the sake of my own conscience. Good service is hardly ever reported, and bad service is hugely overrepresented in the feedback reviews. If my current experience with Vodafone continues, I would urge everyone to be sure they have good reasons not to move over to Vodafone. Their prices are simply too good to turn down.

    I will of course report back here should I experience any instability with the connection speeds, or other unforeseen problems

    Terrible service always cutting out and no way near what they said we would get. Spend a total of nearly 6 hours onto customer services getting no where and no results. It constantly drops out. We even phoned saying we would rather just leave the contract as not getting what was stated but the said they couldn't do that because their end it states we are getting the top speed. Absolute joke never ever use them again and I would advise anyone to consider a more reliable and helpful company. We have had trouble paying credit cards and bills because of this and still they didn't care the lady I spkoke to on the day didn't care at all about what we were saying only what they thought we were getting.

    Absolutely rubbish. the signal drops and goes off all day long. Do not get this service. There is nothing fast about this service look else where. I was with Sky and got lured into thinking it would be an improvement but it is awful. Now I want to leave Vodafone want to charge me £100 which is a joke because it never worked. Avoid like the plague.

    I have yet to receive my Broadband in a couple of days. I've had a terrible experience with staff at the Vodafone shop who sold me the broadband prospect. They did that on the back of me needing a replacement nano SIM for my new phone. The SIM story goes as follows, and I produce the complaint letter I wrote to Vodafone through my Vodafone online account. Even though a response was promised within 5 working days, none has materialised to date.

    "I would like to complain about the cynical and flippant service offered by the Glasgow Braehead Vodafone store. I was offered a nano SIM to suit my new phone, and was told my service would change over to the new SIM in one hour. 24 hrs later, it hadn't. So I returned to the store as advised by the website chat service, and was given another SIM, and emphatically told that the new SIM would come on stream in 24 hrs. I was also given a mobile number to contact the store should there be problems. Nothing happened. I tried to contact the store many times, only to realise the phone number I was given was effectively unattended. I contacted a chat adviser on Vodafone website, and he took the details of my SIM, and was given a cast iron guarantee it would become operational in 4 hrs. A week later, nothing had happened. Today, I went back to the Braehead store to report the situation. The man who dealt with me twice previously was Steven, and it was he who dealt with me again. He seemed totally puzzled by it all. This time, he used a different method of swapping the SIM.\.\effectively logged on to another web page to do this. 15 minutes later, the SIM had come on stream. When asked why no one had responded to my phone calls, he told me the phone was kept in a cupboard, and pointed to the cupboard. He apologised. At this stage, I felt a formal complaint was in order as clearly I thought Vodafone ought to know about my experience. I asked to speak to the manager. He turned up, and started to employ patronising behaviours and patter.\.\.he patted me on my back, stuck and hand out for a handshake, and sought to know what the problem was. He knew what the problem was, as Steven had repeatedly gone in to confer with him about my situation. The sheer facetiousness of his behaviour was shocking. I asked how I might complain, and he advised me he would type my complaint out into the 'system', pointing out to her terminal screen. At this point, I had had enough, and was unprepared to waste my time over yet another wool gathering round. I have made two needless trips to the store in Braehead from Wemyss Bay (50 mile round trip each time), and I've had a week of disruption to the use of my new phone. I would like to ask you what you are prepared to do to deal with this poor service from Vodafone. On my first trip, I was also sold the Vodafone Broadband service, and the router has now arrived at my home. I am not sure what to expect from that, given my experience to date."

    Having read the abysmal reviews here, and the similarity of themes, I am now going to cancel my impending Broadband switch over. Even at half price, this deal is not worth the trouble.

    Recently I purchased Vodafone home broadband, and I strongly discourage people from committing the same mistake for the following reasons
    1. Connection keeps breaking intermittently. I could have assumed this happening in first week of connection, but I'm now in second month of contract, yet the line is not stable.
    2. Speed which is promised yet to be experienced. Contract commitment says 31 mbps but I'm yet to touch that mark. Forget 31, I'm not exceeding 20 mbps.
    3. Engineer visit for any troubleshooting the problem is chargeable.

    Utterly abysmal. They cold call offering exactly the same speed, and that they will put in a second line, and give you double. They mis sell, tell lies, and fob you off with excuses. The hub wifi is pathetic, it doesn't even reach 12 feet away. Shocking service, shocking speed of 3mbps, when you're promised 13 / 14mbs. And when you complain they are forced to tell the truth. I can't abide liars!!!!!

    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.

    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.
