What broadband connections does Vodafone have?

Before we get into the plans you can find at Vodafone, it’s good to first understand the connections that Vodafone uses to get you online. Depending on where you live, you may have one or a few possible options.

ADSL: ADSL uses Chorus’s copper network and is suitable for basic internet use. ADSL has a maximum download speed of 7.5Mbps and 24Mbps for ADSL2+.

VDSL: VDSL is faster than ADSL and available in 80% of homes. You can stream HD video and have a sharper picture on video calls with download speeds of up to 100Mbps and upload speeds of up to 30Mbps.

Fibre: Using fibre optic cables that are being rolled out through much of New Zealand, fibre provides a faster and more reliable connection than ADSL and VDSL. Fibre speeds vary depending on whether you have Fibre 100, Fibre 200 or Fibre Max, but you can have more users and devices sharing the connection.

Ultra-fast HFC: For the fastest connection, HFC is delivered through Vodafone’s hybrid fibre coaxial copper network. You can expect speeds of up to 700-900Mbps down and up to 90-95 up for the Max plan, or up to 200Mbps down and up to 20Mbps up on the HFC 200 plan. HFC is only available in a small number of locations at the moment.

Wireless: Super-fast broadband over Vodafone’s 4G network. 5G is now available in selected areas.

Types of plans offered by Vodafone

Rather than trying to figure out what connections are available at your place, you can enter your address on the Vodafone website and you will be presented with your options.

Wireless broadband

If you are able to get Wireless 4G broadband, you can choose between a 60GB or a 120GB plan. No installation required, just plug in the modem and get started.

Copper and fibre plans

If you can get ADSL, VDSL, fibre or UltraFast HFC at your home, you can choose from one of the following naked plans.

  • Vodafone Everyday Home. 240GB of data
  • Vodafone Ultimate Home. Unlimited data
  • Vodafone Smart Connect. Unlimited data

You have the option to choose a 12-month or 24-month contract, but open term is also available in most cases. Monthly costs are either the same for all included connection types or can vary. For example, the Ultimate Home plan is more expensive for fibre max and HFC Max than it is for ADSL.

Plans include free standard installation and a free modem unless you are choosing an open-term plan.

Getting connected to fibre

In many cases, you will be able to get up and running fairly quickly. However, if you are having fibre installed for the first time at your property then this process can take anywhere from a couple of weeks to a few months.

A technician will need to visit your property and plan the installation, and then return to connect the fibre cables from the street which can involve extra building work. You may also need to get consent from neighbours if you share a driveway, or from your landlord if you are not the homeowner.

So you don’t need to wait to get online, Vodafone offers the Ultra Hub Plus modem so you can stay connected through 4G until fibre is ready to go.

Does Vodafone have any broadband bundles?

When you sign up you can create your own bundle with one of the following:

  • Voice Calling. VDSL, fibre and Home Wireless plans have the option to add Voice Calling, which uses your Vodafone modem instead of the wall phone jack. It costs an extra $10 a month and includes free national calling to other land lines for a limit of 2 hours each call.
  • Vodafone TV. If you have an unlimited fibre or ultra-fast HFC connection you can get Vodafone TV which comes with free-to-air channels and apps like Netflix, Lightbox, Neon and YouTube. Features include 3 Day Rewind and 500 hours of recording, plus you can add other SKY channels.

Product highlights

  • $200 broadband credit. Sign up for a 12-month Ultimate Home plan or a Smart Connect plan for 12 or 24 months and receive $200 broadband credit. This promotion is available until further notice.
  • Vodafone customer discount. If you have an eligible Vodafone pay monthly mobile plan you can save $10 a month on your broadband plan.
  • 24 months discount. When you sign up for a 24-month broadband plan you’ll get $10 off each month.
  • Wi-Fi while you wait. So you can get online while you are waiting for fibre to be connected, Vodafone will provide you with a 4G Sim enabled Ultra Hub Plus modem for $49.
  • Vodafone Ninjas. If you have questions or need a hand with tricky tech stuff, Vodafone Ninjas are available to help online, in-store or by phone.
  • Vodafone Rewards. All Vodafone customers can earn Vodafone Reward points and have access to exclusive offers and discounts.
  • 30-day money back guarantee. If you sign up for Wireless broadband and you are not enjoying the 4G experience, you can return your modem and get your money back.
  • No joining fee for SKY. If your SKY TV service is charged to your Vodafone account you will have no joining fee on standard installations.

What to be aware of

  • Not all connection types are available everywhere, so make sure to enter your address on Vodafone’s website to find out what you can get.
  • Broadband speeds can vary due to factors such as wiring, your hardware technology, how many people are using the service and environmental factors.
  • If you join a plan and receive the $200 broadband credit but decide to terminate your contract early, Vodafone will recover this amount.
  • Vodafone TV is not available everywhere.
  • Naked broadband plans are not compatible with services that require a fixed phone line to work such as faxes, medical alerts or monitored alarms.
  • You will be charged $2 for every 1GB you go over your plan’s data allowance.

Can I get Vodafone if I live in a rural area?

If you live in a rural area where other broadband connections are not available, you can opt for a Rural Broadband plan. You can choose between 120GB for $95.99 a month or 200GB for $155.99 a month, and if you run out of data you can purchase an extra 15GB for $20.

Depending on where you live, you may already have excellent 4G service, or a technician may need to install an aerial.

Vodafone broadband summary

Vodafone is worth considering if you want to have your broadband plan with one of the largest telecommunication companies in New Zealand. With 4G, 5G (in some locations), fibre, HFC, ADSL, VDSL and Rural Broadband plans, you shouldn’t have too much trouble getting connected where you live.

There are some great perks such as Vodafone Rewards, discounts for mobile customers and 24-month contracts, plus you can get broadband credit if you sign up for an eligible plan. However Vodafone’s website can be a bit overwhelming, and it is not easy to find the prices for plans until you start the signup process.
