Want broadband at home? Mine is from EE and the fibre broadband connectivity has been OK. Sadly I can’t say the same about the home phone service, which was completely broken for well over a month. Anyhoo, now Vodafone are getting in on the action with broadband and home phone services getting rolled out across the UK.
If you’re quick and get in early then you can also bag yourself Netflix completely free for the entire year.
You can head to their site now. and whack in your postcode to see what’s available. There’s a £16.99 line rental on the packages we spotted, but ADSL broadband is available for £5, fibre for £15 and “superfast” fibre for £20. All prices are per month and all are for existing Vodafone customers. As with most other players, you tend to get a discount if you already have a service with the company. Calls are bundled in and there’s “unlimited” internet usage.
Vodafone will be offering their “Vodafone Connect” app to give devices a boost when connected on WiFi.

Starting today, anyone in nearly 22 million premises across the UK will be able to benefit from Vodafone’s nationwide fibre optic, business-grade network which gives customers the benefits of broadband speeds of up to 76 Mbps. Until today the service has only been available to existing Vodafone mobile customers: it is now available to both existing and new customers across the UK. In addition, to celebrate the launch, anyone signing up from today will receive a year’s worth of Netflix, the world’s leading Internet television network at no additional cost.
Vodafone’s network currently reaches exchanges which pass around 22 million premises across the UK. Combined with the plug-and-play Vodafone router, the service delivers speed, reliability, unlimited data and cutting-edge features which let customers share, stream and shop to their hearts’ content.
The innovative and newly updated Vodafone Connect mobile app, coupled with the router, offers a range of features which give customers greater control over the devices in the home, with settings for a number of uses. ‘Boost’ allows customers to supercharge any device connected to their home network, giving that device priority over others;
‘Beam’, which uses Beamforming technology, focuses Wi-Fi signal to compatible devices wherever they are in the home. Grouped settings are now available, such as ‘Family’ which customises the experience, allowing users to easily manage and set time limits on certain devices, giving control over when Wi-Fi is available and when it’s not; or ‘Guest Wi-Fi’ allows controlled Wi-Fi access to household guests in one click. In addition, you can also control the WPS function of the router from the app, so setting up compatible devices such as printers, speakers and phone is easier than ever.
