Had it for nearly a year and without fail the quality is shoddy at best and non existent at worst, connection constantly fails and disconnects no matter what device you use. Makes even watching a short clip or messaging people a pain. Whatever you do don't get Vodafone broadband
Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
Terrible service. Router doesn't work well. Doesn't support media servers such as synology

It keeps dropping out every 5-10 minutes

Customer Service is dreadful, they tell you the most obvious stuff

Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
Absolutely shocking! Came from BT in November with no previous issues to Vodafone where I’ve had nothing but problems.
Continually dropping out & dial up speeds although they insist that there’s no fault. I’m heading to Trading Standards by the end of the week if this isn’t sorted!
Pay extra for another provider, avoid this lot at all costs!!

Aberdeen Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
dreadful broadband and customer service atrocious! changed to Vodapnone on 3rd February due to increasing costs by BT. spent next fortnight on the phone to technical department and called into store twice to try and get a broadband and mobile phone to work, broadband speeds were o.7 upload and 0.4 for download! told it was because router had to be plugged into main phone socket, all equipment ie printer, laptops, tablet, NOW TV box had to be hard wired to router. ended up with nothing working through WIFI and mobile phone permanently locked. absolute disaster contract cancelled within fortnight and back to BT.

Aghalee Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
I have been with bt and virgin before for many years and never had to call them for any broadband issues ever. With vodafone broadband it seems like dealong with some dodgy company setup only recently. Broadband connection keeps dropping and now the first month bill is like some random amouny which was more than twice the actual contract. I was kept online unnecessarily long without much explanation. One can hear laughter in the background not very professional at all. The agent just reduced the bill and it seems a common occurrence and from them if you call or pay if you don't notice. I signed up because it was cheap and now I can't wait for the contract to come to an end. It is the fastest package and i am in very good location for the fasteat but still it seems very poor connection odd times. Stay away from them

Absolute shambles! Their 'customer service' is atrocious. No goodwill at all. I was sceptical at first going with Vodafone after a previous bad experience and I was proven right not to go with them. Never ever ever again!!

Barrow in furness Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
Vodafone deserve their place at the bottom , the customer service experience is truly awful with incorrect information given out on a regular basis, long waiting times and promises of return calls never materializing. Rudeness is common place with the front line staff poorly trained and be prepared to ride the merry go round of being passed from one department to another as no one has the ability to deal with straight forward problems.If they hope to be on a level with the likes of First Direct for customer service then their only chance would be a complete overhaul from the top down...even then I find it unlikely that a leopard such as Vodafone will ever change its spots.

BECCLES Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
I would tell you about Vodafone broadband if I had ever actually managed to get it!! Initially ordered the start of January being told I wouldn't need to be at home to have it installed. However after engineer visit turns out I did need to be there. After numerous phones calls and waiting managed to get 2nd engineer visit arranged for the start of February. My mum came & waited in my house all day & no engineer turned up. Vodafone didn't even bother to phone & let me know. I have decided if this is a sign of things to come I should cancel before I get involved with a company who are completely disorganised & incompetent

Birkenhead Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
I wish I had the reviews on this page before purchasing.
I purchased the 50Gb deal for £30 per month for my children to use. After checking my bank account they have charged me £192.50 because unbeknown to me you have to ask for your allowance to be capped. we have allegedly used an additional 50gb and been charged accordingly. what a rip off and to add insult to injury I've just spent the last hour trying to Cancel.
coverage has been crap as well.

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

Bognor Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
Its horrible broadban when I can not even load my facebook. I got a contract with vodafone with the most expensive deal for broadband, it costs me 28/month and they said that the speed is up tp 76mbs/s. However it is actually 10~20mbs/s i think so. When I contact with customer service about this problemm they said that because our lineland speed is low so i have to accept it. How ridiculous they are. PLEASE STAY AWAY VODAFONE BROADBAND

Bow Road, London Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
From the day I got broadband with Vodafone the service signal and reliability has been terrible. I have stuck with it for several months and finally decided to switch. After several calls they are still insisting on charging me an early cancellation charge which I find completely unbelievable. Such shockingly bad customer service it's unreal. What ever you do don't use vodafone!!!

Bristol Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
Move from BT due to increasing costs and variable download speed. We were away for the actual switch over but left the Vodafone router plugged in and switched on. On our return the internet download speed had jumped from 6 Mbps to a constant 37 Mbps at less than half the cost of the BT service and free landline to U.K. Mobile calls. So far, no outages. Brilliant - highly recommended.

Brora, Sutherland Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
I bought my son a dongle a month ago - 10gb and 10gb free for £20.00 pound (a 30 day contract). was told he could bever use 20gb in a month YET we were not told to have it switched off all the time when at home or charging the dongle... three weeks later we get a phone bill £245.50!!!!!!!!
Apparently it updates and downloads each evening automatically and used up 39gb data and now i am stuck with the bill.

I am unemploeyd, single mum and do you think Customer Services would help ??????? NO
I am totally fed up and upon asking to close it i was told to pay for yet another 30 days.
Sick and tired of them and there lack of care and not informing their customers upfront

BS34 5QD Patchway Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
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

Left BT joined vodafone what a mistake don't do it. We joined 23rd of March, broadband did not work from day one, 7 phone calls later by 7 different operators; promising engineers coming out or call backs that never happen. now it appears they have shifted the blame to someone called "outreach" who won't be available until 29th of March. DON'T JOIN VODAFONE unless you like a Basil Fawlty experience, stress and no internet.......ARRGGGGGGHHHHH

Chesterfield Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
Four years fibre broadband with EE & later, sky. Their routers connected and stayed connected at around 34 to 35 me.
For a week this was the same with Vodafone then it dropped to just over 27 then fell in stages to 22.4 - which by an amazing coincidence is the exact minimum speed for their service level agreement.
in short their support staff said there's nothing they can't do anything about it. They can't raise a fault report as it's within their minimum speed guarantee.
DO NOT FALL FOR THE DEALS THEY OFFER! - THEY ARE CHEAPER FOR A REASON - ALMOST HALF THE SPEED OF OTHERS & VERY POOR TECHNICAL BACKUP.

This has to be the worst broadband I have ever had, It buffers on every device I have in the house it makes watching anything on TV on line services stressful to the point where you give up watching anything and watch normal TV. It keeps dropping off certain devices in the house at random
I am counting the days I can end this nightmare and go back to SKY

Setting up the account didn't work first time, they then sent three routers so the internet wouldn't work until they sync the correct router serial number. Customer service is awful. Have had to reset account every time I try to log in. Now log in doesn't work if you use Safari (Apple) browser

Devizes Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
I have took out a plan with Vodafone just over two weeks ago unfortunately we are in a position that we cannot get unlimited broadband locally so after a recommendation from the neightbour and the advise of the the store representative at currys that there is no option for more than 50GB we have picked your home wifi package which we were pretty happy with.

My understanding was that it cannot go over the 50GB limit or at least I would get notified if it did which is what would have happened if we also had a mobile connected to the account.

Our internet stopped working today so I quickly installed the app and to my surprise there was 65GB usage showing.

I have called vodafones advisor to ask regarding the usage potential addons etc he advised me that I have gone over and the extra 15GB will cost us close to 200 pounds.

I have tried to ask him to apply the add-on for this month as the month wasnt over so we have 65GB and a cap set for the future plus an online account so I can manage it better as I havent been suggested this before. He was insisting that I have to pay these charges.

If I knew I do not get notified I would have downloaded the app the least or if I was suggested an online account/data cap on our last call when I was trying to change the billing date I would have done that,

This was our first and probably last experience with vodafone as it stands I have cancelled our monthly deal now I am sorry it ended like this as the plan would have suited us with the additional 15GB add on but having to pay almost 200 pounds for a bill that should have only come to 50 is way too much and I do not feel like you they want your custom but your money.

I asked to speak to the manager but nobody would speak to me.

Donnington Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
Horrendous. Switched from Sky 6 months ago. When it works speed is ok. The router is clearly the result of a primary school competition. It frequently drops out and unless you are sitting on top of it, signal strength is rubbish. Like to go into a different room and still have broadband? Forget about it. Rubbish. Service also dropped off for 2 days. Called customer service. Lady told me expect a call back from an expert. Thank God I didn't plan my life around this call, as it never took place. The service drops in and out for hours at a time randomly. Simple lesson. You get what you pay for and in this instance you get very very very little. Don't be duped. Stay with your provider. Unfortunately I'm stuck for another 12 months.

I switched from bt broadband to vodafone broadband last year, the worst thing i have ever done, the speed is terrible and constantly cuts out, i went for a deal which included a iPhone 6 and home broadband as i have been a vodafone customer for 16 years,i am now looking at other broadband providers, if vodafone want to keep there customers they should provide a better service.

east london Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
I signed with Vodafone on the strength that they had a comprehensive international calling add-on particularly as it includes UAE - it doesn't and that was a great disappointment and why I left (I may as well get free European football with an alternative provider)

For those who dont need the international option I actually rate the broadband and the very helpful UK based support team.

A couple of installation teething problems were resolved quickly and compared to some providers (especially those who have weak security systems) Broadband speed was almost double for download and 4 times faster for upload.

If I can get a better international deal I will stay with them

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.

Edinburgh Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
Purchased a £15 a month contract with Vodafone while living in the UK. I've only just found out two months later I'm being charged nearly £80 extra during this period for a few calls to Ireland, something I did not realise incurred extra charges.

While I maybe should have considered this beforehand, I received no kind of message informing me of these extra charges, and no form of sympathy while speaking to Vodafone about the issue. I will definitley not be renewing my monthly contract.

The service must be one of the worst going since day one I have had nothing but problems with this Internet provider I have had about 50 technicians, to my property and one technician says they do not know what the problem is but they can't rectify for home broadband and landline service Vodafone has to be worst but I have to say I have never had a problem on your cell network they should just stay with the cellular side of the network

I gave up on Virgin after yet another fault with agent restarting my router for the 5th time and claiming my slow bandwidth was due to having wifi disabled. Also when I cancelled they claimed Netflix would buffer with anything less than 100mb. Terrible! Got my Vodafone router through the post. Plugged it in on the date. Got my advertised download and upload speeds on the date I was told. Can't give all full marks as not had it that long but to date very good.

Epsom Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
I received no broadband, It took them 30 days and I still had no connection. They never cancelled BT so I had no choice than to go back to BT. They said they could pay the cancellation fee as it was their fault but they would only be able to pay off my mobile phone bill with it. They said that I could use my phone as a router free of charge, that was not true. Having to explain and explain again, they took of a small amount off my bill. I had a bill of £103 I usually a have about £50 to pay. I had a guy called Hamid Khalique, who worked there, tell me "Come on, Lorraine, you haven't lost any money from our mistake"!!! I think he should be trained in Customer Care better, I don't know him, so I'm not sure why he addressed me the way he did. I did have to pay for a much larger mobile bill, I spent ages on the free number phoning to try to get it sorted, even their own system went down. Then to top it all they sent me another email saying welcome to Vodafone broad and they were going to connect me in two weeks time!!!! Come on Newbury sort yourselves out!!!

Essex Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
Most people here are complaining about about substandard broadband from Vodafone. I could even get connected to find out myself but if my experience is anything to go by I have not reason to doubt it would have been just as bad. I had my first order cancelled via text message with no reason give, I called and was told it was a system error. Vodafone then put another order through for me. This was after two weeks. Another two weeks went by and I received a message my router was being delivered today only to get another text message saying my order had been cancelled as there was no room in the exchange. So a fully wasted four weeks. I think the real reason why it was cancelled is that the £20 offer has proven so massively popular that they can't cope/are losing money. Also I went through a cash back site and I think they realized this and also decided to cancel. A more shoddy company I have not come across in many years. I will definitely avoid in the future and advise others to do so.

Essex Vodafone Mobile Broadband  
Do not be tempted by their offer. Catalogue of incompetence and misinformation for over a month, a month filled with lengthy frustrating phone calls, resulted in us returning to our old service provider without ever having received broadband from Vodafone. Unbelievably bad service and a horrible experience. Company culture and training not set up to want to solve problems, is infuriating, frustrating and at times insulting.
