I am a key worker working on critical national infrastructure from home for the past 2.5 weeks. I had multiple problems with Vodafone broadband over the years but these started getting worse in Feb with the connection dropping off several times an hour over the last few weeks. I reported it to Vodafone at least half a dozen times. I understand shortages of stuff considering the situation but not the constant lies and abysmal technician support. The promussed 3 day turnaround for 2nd line support just doesn't happen. They don't text, call or fix anything. When someone does get in touch they ignore the clearly stated problem (malfunctioning internet connection on the router) and waste my time on wifi splitting or changing microfiletees, despite BT confirming back in Feb that the problem is not on the line but with the router. I checked the Vodafone forums and it is clear that their routers are of poor quality and malfunctioning but they refuse to acknowledge it and to semd a replacement, despite my key worker status and impact on my work. I  am at wits end as it is now impossible to get hold of their chat or help desk and.desperate for a solution so I can do my vital work.

Tonight I was on customer contact centre chat, managed out of India for an hour, after 15 mins agent 1 passed me to agent 2. Agent 2 asked me question after question about cancelling including numerous security questions! Agent 2 then said after 45 minutes oh sorry I have just been informed cancellations are closed until 8am can you callback Sir.....

Then when I complained he offered me £5 how to make it much worse.

Margate Vodafone  
Overall the customer service agents are friendly and helpful, all whilst not really being able to provide any actual support. I suffered with terrible speeds well below what was originally quoted, the connection keeps dropping out for no explainable reason, the router is perhaps the most ineffective I've ever come across - and this is a widespread problem it would seem. So much so, Vodafone agreed to start letting customer use their own routers, but in order to do so you need to call and ask for a DSL Username and Password - this is official information on their website, but when I called I was passed from department to department and nobody knew what I was talking about. The only saving grace about my relationship with Vodafone Broadband is that I've had so much money back from them due to the sheer volume of calls I've had to make to get issues resolved. For instance, they sent me a new router but forgot to de-register my old router so the new one didn't work, which took about 12 hours to resolve. Then a day later they de-registered the new one and it set my house alarm off whilst I was at work, and took me another 12 hours to resolve.
I've been a Vodafone mobile customer for years and have no issues whatsoever with that, but the day my contract is up on the broadband, I'm gone.

Macclesfield Vodafone  
Terrible - entire process. Placing an order in the first instance was full of promises and then screwed up my order. It took a ridiculous amount of phone calls to resolve. I was simply doing a switch from Sky and my broadband with Vodafone was due to go live 17 days ago. Router arrived on time but since then no body at Vodafone has been able to help. They say I just need to wait, but they don't know what I need to wait. I've spent hours on the phone to people in various countries and a shear waste of time. Still No Wifi. Avoid Avoid Avoid.

Vodafone suck,
connection has always been ****, it continues drop and it stays down for several minutes and this continuously during the day and night.
They declare 75 mbps connection when it actually oscillates between 10 and 35, but for them only their bogus test is valid.

Barry Vodafone  
I have left as the service had really deteriorated and I was getting a very poor download speed. The Voda app failed to let me claim against their guaranteed minimum speed as it always gave an error. New provider Plusenet instantly restored existing download speed that I started off with Voda. I would not use them again.

Glossop Vodafone  
Moving over from Virgin, I needed something that had a solid speed, rather than one that was up and down like Virgin was.

Ever since signing up for Vodafone I've been impressed. Signing up and being installed took around 10 days and after waiting the obligatory week for our speed to level out, it's been reliable and at the speed we have been promised.

The app is also brilliant! Being able to track what devices are connected is a god send, especially when I can boost the speed to one device when I am gaming!

Overall I'm really impressed with Vodafone, the price I pay is exceptional and the service has been great. I don't get where the bad reviews are coming from.

Washington, Tyne and Wear Vodafone  
The worst broadband service I ever had.

It began with 5 days delay for the activation date, followed by one month of no connection due to a fault with the line, during that entire period customer service at first could not determine what was wrong then found out that OpenReach had to send an engineer.
the engineer's visit was delayed twice, then he appeared unannounced and asked to enter the premises despite Vodafone explicitly telling me the engineer will NOT require access to the premises.
he got in, and could NOT fix the issue. a rebooking was required and I had to wait another week. OpenReach CANCELLED that appointment because Vodafone did NOT follow up with them!!
booking ANOTHER appointment was necessary, and again I had to wait another week. the engineer shows up and fixes the problem with the line.
I got good speeds for a couple of days, then the sync speed dropped to one-quarter of the guaranteed minimum speed, I called Vodafone and they claimed they will fix the issue. the very next day, broadband goes OFF completely.
I called them today and they told me that an engineer's visit was necessary AGAIN, and I have to wait until next week, and that it was not guaranteed an engineer will be able to make the visit within the three days timeframe!!
through that entire experience, I was continuously thanked for being patient, but it's not about patience anymore, it's about extremely bad service and unprecedented unreliability and incompetent logistical management.
I will be cancelling the contract with Vodafone, and I cannot imagine why they should charge me a penny for this insane service.
if I could give a zero star review I would've.

West sussex Vodafone  
After the price crept up by 30% I decided to cancel this service. A month later and daily arguments with support staff it still has not been cancelled and they still keep trying to bill me.
Vodafone is a scam, do not go with this company.
The broadband itself was OK. Occasionally it would cut out for a few minutes or speeds would drop to a third of what they should be. Mostly it was fine.

falkirk Vodafone  
Terrible Customer Service. I ordered Vodafone Broadband 2 weeks ago, but the router never arrived. I've been on for hours and hours complaining, asking for a new router, they just kept re-assuring me it would get here. It never did, even DPD said they had lost it, so I asked them to send another, still nothing arrived. Yesterday, they switched me over without a router and I lost internet at the most critical time, home working due to Corona. I asked them not to do this until I new I had a working router, they did it anyway. Due to the urgency I decided to use my own modem so requested the PPP username/password in order to connect. My existing kit did not seem to connect, so I went out and bought a Draytek modem, which didn't work either, so i went and bought a TP Link modem/router combo, and this didn't work. So after hours more technical support it transpired they had provided me with only a partial username, and the password they had given me was incorrect due to I's and lowercase L's, they had read it out over the phone incorrectly. So eventually, I am online using the TP Link. The speed seems fine so far ~55mb on Superfast 2. Still not received the Vodafone router though, it will probably never arrive. I have never had such bad customer service from any company, they could have sorted this long before Corona started shutting things down.

Don't bother ordering from them. I placed an order which they messed up and then blamed me for not contacting them. And because I didn't realise they'd cocked up I couldn't have the offer that I wanted because it was no longer available - disgraceful service.

our family have always used Vodafone now my daughter is being charged for unlimited phone package and a further charge for her home hub which has never worked. Despite many complaints they say to leave home hub will cost her £300. worse decision ever made can't wait until she can get rid of the home hub.

Absolutely Awful.
I thought that combining my mobile and broadband provider would make life easier. Wrong. Things started badly when Vodafone changed my landline number without informing me (I subsequently found out that the number was allocated to someone else). That took a week to resolve. Since then I have experienced multiple issues trying to log on to my account (all I want to do is get a copy of my bill) and each time it seems to take 2 to 5 days to resolve the problem. Will not be renewing my contract.

Basingstoke Vodafone  
I wish I’d read the reviews first, I thought all providers were the same but sadly I was very wrong. I’m getting nearly half the speed I signed up for, and quit often a lots less that that the lowest I seen was just over 1mbps. I asked if I can cancel because they haven’t given me the speed I’m paying for and they said I’ll have to pay a fine of nearly the entire contract. Do yourself a favour and listen to the reviews on here and go with someone like sky, BT or even TalkTalk because at least with TalkTalk you get the speed they tell you or at least I did

Broadband speed NEVER reached guaranteed minimum in 18 months. Agents just read from script so are of no use. Thought when Vodafone launched a broadband app things might improve, it doesn't work. So when choosing a broadband supplier don't be fooled by the speed promises (its controlled by the line to your home), just go for the cheapest.

Giving 1 star as there is no option for 0.This is a part time broadband business available intermittently during day and sguts shop everyday at 6 PM. After that have a good mobile data connection for internet. Technical support/chat is a joke. They might give me also a chance, if by chance I walk by their technical support building.

Blackburn Vodafone  
You'll see something in common along all of the reviews for Vodafone.

It works completely fine during the day, then during peak hours, it goes downhill considerably, you're talking down to around <3Mbit,

There's obviously some sort of general network contention issue going on. Trying to get an answer out of Vodafone is impossible -- you'll be told braindead suggestions like changing the WiFi channel over and over again, even when you've told them these issues happen on a wired device. As much as their support team are friendly and try to help, they are restricted to a script or ordering out an Openreach engineer, who will likely tell you (and in my case even show) that there's nothing wrong with your line. There seems to be no way to reach someone who can actually tell you what's wrong.

If you want to see it for yourself, just search @vodafoneuk on Twitter during peak hours.

Just go somewhere else, anywhere else, that doesn't seem to have these core network issues. They are the cheapest, but they are cheapest for the reason.

Burnley Vodafone  
Failed to connect service on time.
Failed to correct fault when service wasn't operational once they claimed it had been connected.
Refused to refund payment for the first month of contract when the service had been available for zero days due to their mistakes (unavailable for 5 weeks in total).
Failed to provide the welcome gift offered with package.
Ignored requests for welcome gift that should have been received with package.

So once connected all's good...

Well no....
Service repeatedly fails with no explanation
Service slows to a crawl for days or weeks on end (so I end up using my mobile hotspot - thankfully I have unlimited tethering but often means no internet or TV for others in household when I'm not home)
And despite having switched off their 'content controls', I'm still repeatedly referred to and blocked from accessing everyday sites because it's trying to redirect me to their content controls page which then fails to load leaving you with no way of accessing the site.

Overall, a total fail.

I'm counting the days until I can switch provider. You should not even for one second consider switching to this one. No deal they can offer (and subsequently ignore) is worth the risk of their inevitable total failure on every single measure of service provision, customer service, technical capability and honesty.

I've had Vodafone for over a year in it been terrible, slow, intermittent. They have tried to fix it 4 times and every time they promise improvement but I just end up having to relog everything in again as they just say "reset the router" , the support is a call centre with a script so if you ask anything off-script they don't know, it feels very buskcetshop, just waiting for my contract to end in July then I will be free of them, if you are thinking about using them... at you pearl, I would not recommend them at all.

Beachampton Vodafone  
We placed our order for the Vodafone service on February 22nd. We told we would receive emails letting us know when to expect the router and activation. I received the email regarding the router, however I have yet to receive a single email regarding the activation. I have had the router since March 04 with no service. when we tried to find out why on the 5th oh March it took numerous attempts and all we were told is that service has been delayed until the 9th. The 9th came and went with no update and no service. This morning, the 10th I have spent over 20 minutes on their chat (the chat service was not working last night) and was given an incoherent rant that I still don't understand. The gist of which is that the activation has been delayed until the 11th. At this point I doubt my service e will ever work. I can say without doubt, Vodafone, is the worst company I have had the displeasure of working with in my 52 years.

Worst broadband experience ever. They are robber. When you make contact for 18 months, they will increase your bill and force you to make a new contract to pay same amount as you make first contract. I called Vodafone almost every month because of connection problems and never fixed. There is always lag and connection losts. Don't make this mistake.

Not best decision I made but was hoping for better speed and better monthly outgoing price. My dowload is only 1/2 of promised but I was told its because of my old laptop wifi. I cannot watch any of streeming websites and VPN dowload site will be blocked by Vodafone so I almost regret I lost my old provider. If I knew this I would not bother by better speed .

You really get to know a company when you actually need their customer service and without doubt Vodafone has to be one of the worst companies ever. According to the Telegraph In 2019's 2nd quarter they were up their as one of the worst broadband companies receiving more complaints than any other. My experience with them alone has been a shambles and its scary to know im not alone. Ive spent 40 hrs on the phone with them countless hours online to try and recover over billed fees.Its taken 8 months and the company are still getting it wrong. when they thourght they had corrected it they cancelled my service and I was without service for over a month waiting for them to reconnect. Im not alone in the suffering and its just become a circus of error after error when dealing with them. Customer service is vital to the back up of any tech product and Vodafon simply is not equiped to offer it when you need it most. My advice is stay away regarless of what speed they are offering. They do not deserve your custom until they can provide a reliable service. This is not an isolated incident im not alone and you could be next.

Probably the WORST company I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. The Broadband is TERRIBLE, spotty reception around the house, phone dips in and out which is highly frustrating trying to play an online game. Take Netflix about 5 minutes to load a movie, and buffering in between. I had to contact them almost on a daily basis to "reset" my internet, they offered me compensation which I never received, proving them to be liars also. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE IF I CAN SAVE 1 PERSON FROM THE TERRIBLE COMPANY IT WILL ALL BE WORTH MY REVIEWS. Never again will I even consider anything to do with Vodafone.

Belfast Vodafone  
Hands down the worst fibre broadband I have ever had.
I went for the "Superfast2" option, it constantly drops the connection when multiple devices are connected so it's not suitable for an average size family home, decent enough speed for 1 or 2 devices but that's it. If you have a few X-boxes, phones, Netflix, etc running at the same time then stay well clear of this company, you will be left severely disappointed and counting the days down until your 18 month contract runs out.

When you start asking questions about the poor quality of service you will be put through to the technical team who's first response is to inform you that your connection is syncing at the maximum speed ~63Mb, why this is important I don't know as the actual data throughput from this connection is woeful.
They will then "help" you diagnose the quality issues you are experiencing, unplugging filters, cables, reset router, etc. Ultimately this results in them sending you a new router which makes absolutely no difference what so ever.
At this stage its then just a case of wash, rinse & repeat every time you contact them, I think I was on my forth router by the time my contract was up.

Switched to a new provider advertising the same speeds as Vodafone and the difference in quality of service, primarily download speed and throughput is day and night.
