While old subscribers will be locked into previously negotiated prices, new subscribers who are also Vodafone mobile customers can snag the lower tier of broadband, with average downstream speeds of 35Mbps, for just £20 per month, making it one of the cheapest entry level fibre connections on the market. If you haven’t bundled your mobile and broadband accounts, you’ll pay £22 per month for Vodafone’s “Superfast 1” home broadband.
Vodafone mobile customers can now get “Superfast 2,” with average download speeds of 63 Mbps, for £26. Non-Vodafone mobile customers will now pay £28 per month. All packages are available only on 18-month contracts.
Both fibre packages come with a wireless router, Parental Controls you can activate, and six months free of F-Secure anti-virus software for up to 5 devices. Quoted prices include line rental, as the Advertising Standards Authority now requires. Set-up and activation is typically free but you may face a £60 one-off new line provision charge you if you don’t currently have a fixed phone line on your property, such as if you’ve moved into a new-built home.
Additionally, Vodafone’s “Ultimate Speed Guarantee” means that if you’re not achieving download speeds of 25 Mbps and 55 Mbps on these contracts, you’re entitled to a 15% reduction of your bills. It’s important to note that this speed guarantee applies only to sync speed, the raw speed your router is receiving from the wires and not the speed your computer is receiving from your WiFi network, which can be limited by interference and an outdated router or device.
