Our brief review of Vodafone broadband

The good:

  • Amazing value fibre broadband

  • Ultrafast 900 Mbps available in some FTTP areas

  • No set-up costs

  • Symmetrical upload and download bandwidths on full fibre packages

The bad:

  • No TV bundle packages

  • No ADSL options

  • Below average customer service rating

Vodafone may be better known in the UK as a mobile network provider, but the company also offers a wide range of broadband packages to suit a variety of households.

They exclusively offer fibre products, meaning you can expect superfast broadband speeds with Vodafone if you can access their services. Their broadband products top out at 900 Mbps, but not many households will be able to access this (or afford it!).

Although at usave we recommend users always opt for superfast fibre broadband, we recognise that fibre is not yet available in some areas. For households that are not connected to a fibre network, you will not be able to access any of Vodafone's broadband services as they do not have an ADSL option. If you are can access Vodafone though, you can't go far wrong with some of their unbeatable value broadband deals.

Finally, If you are looking to bundle in TV with your broadband, look elsewhere; this is not something Vodafone currently offer.

How we review providers

How we review providers

When reviewing a broadband provider, it isn’t just as simple as looking at the price and the speed they offer. There is much more to it than that!

There are a few things we look into when determining whether we recommend a provider or not. These include things like speed, price, router performance, customer service...

We go through each of these in more detail in the review, look at how well the provider performs for each, and then compare how the provider's advertisements compare with real world experiences as well as other providers.

All our reviews are genuine, unbiased, and written by broadband experts.
