Vodafone's broadband packages come with the Vodafone WiFi Hub router, which is supplied free of charge. Vodafone also offers an accompanying smartphone app that lets you manage your router from your mobile. This means you can change your wi-fi password, control when people can get online and even use the 'Boost' feature to prioritise speeds for specific devices.
Vodafone offers fibre broadband and phone packages only. Its two superfast deals are widely available, and it also offers ultrafast broadband to customers in certain locations. Customers can't opt for a broadband-only deal, and Vodafone doesn't offer any pay-TV bundles.
Vodafone's prices are competitive, and all packages last 24 months and include unlimited data (although you'll need to pay extra to get a calls allowance).
If you do take out a broadband contract with Vodafone, keep in mind that the price of your deal will increase each April by the Consumer Price Index (CPI) rate of inflation as published that January, plus an additional 3.9%. You can avoid these price rises by taking out a Vodafone Pro Xtra deal, but these cost substantially more than its basic plans.
Vodafone only offers fibre services. Its widely available fibre packages have with average speeds of 35Mbps and 63Mbps. There are also two ultrafast deals available to customers in certain areas - these have average speeds starting at 100Mbps and going as high as 900Mbps.
