Find out more about Vodafone broadband with our useful guide.
Vodafone are best known for their mobile phone network. Since September 2015, they’ve also joined the broadband game – offering fixed line broadband to customers across the UK, at competitive prices.
Follow the rest of this guide to find out all you need to know about Vodafone broadband, and whether they might be the right provider for you.
What broadband packages does Vodafone offer?
Vodafone offers three broadband packages. Vodafone do different offers at different times, so keep an eye on their website for promotions and deals. Currently, Vodafone’s packages are:
What is 'line rental'?When shopping around for broadband deals, it’s easy to be drawn in by an eye-catching ‘£5.99 a month’ deal. What these deals nearly never include is something called ‘line rental’.
Broadband, for the most part, needs a phone line to connect to the internet. BT owns the country’s phone line network, and charges other providers to use the lines. They then pass the cost onto consumers in the form of ‘line rental’.
What comes included with Vodafone’s broadband packages?
- Router. Ultra-smart Vodafone Connect router (worth £130). The router is good because it allows you to manage features (such as directing signal to certain devices or areas in the house, and customising when broadband can be used.)
- Unlimited. Like with some other providers, Vodafone’s current packages all come with no usage limit.
- Home Phone line.
- Free F-Secure SAFE anti-virus software. This lasts for 6 months.
- Family Time. This app lets you control the network from your home. It even lets you tailor times for the network to switch off. Bedtime means bedtime!
What extra add-ons can I buy?
Because Vodafone is (refreshingly) not a quad play provider, so that’s really all you get with their broadband deals.
You can take a look at their site, to find some deals on phones to combine with your broadband package.
