This table has been limited to display a maximum of 10 deals; sorted by the highest download speed first.
* The "average" download speed displayed in Mb is the speed available to 50% of customers with this product during peak time (between 8pm and 10pm). The actual speed you will get depends on a variety of factors such as your cabling, your area, how far you are from the telephone exchange as well as time of day. The majority of providers will tell you the speed you will likely receive when you begin your online sign up — this may differ from the average speed displayed on our table.
The deals available at your postcode are subject to local availability. The provider will confirm availability for your line.

As a relatively new, future-focused internet service provider, Vodafone does not offer any traditional ADSL services. Rather, Vodafone broadband offers only superfast and Gigafast fibre connection. Fibre broadband is very quickly becoming the standard, and by not offering ADSL, Vodafone is able to completely concentrate on ensuring its fibre connections are as stable and fast as possible.
Vodafone currently offers two Superfast broadband plans and three Gigafast broadband plans.
Average speed: 35 Mbps
Doing away with ADSL standard broadband, Vodafone’s entry-level broadband is 35Mbps fibre optic, which is comparable with many competitors. Good for everyday browsing and light streaming on three or four devices, the Vodafone Ultimate Broadband Guarantee promises that speeds will not drop below 25Mbps, and if they do, customers will be eligible for a 15% discount. This is an 18-month minimum term contract.
Average speed: 63Mbps
A great speed for medium-to-large households that allows for relatively seamless streaming and gaming across multiple devices. Should speeds ever drop below 55Mbps, you’ll be eligible for the 15% discount. This plan also has a minimum term of 18 months.
Average speed: 100Mbps
This is where Vodafone leaves the majority of other competitors behind as it jumps to some seriously impressive speeds. More than enough for more intensive gaming, streaming and downloading on multiple devices, heavy users will appreciate this speedy connection. This an 18-month contract.
Vodafone Gigafast Broadband 500/900
Average speed: 500Mbps/900Mbps
The two highest levels of speed offered by Vodafone build on the capabilities of Gigafast. At 500mbps you’ll easily stream in HD and 4K as well as game smoothly – the same goes for 900Mbps, but you can do so on even more devices. You should bear in mind that often these highest speeds will only be achievable via ethernet cable. With these speeds, you won’t need to worry about slow connection, no matter how many online tasks you undertake at once. You can game, download, call, browse and stream freely, with the chances of experiencing lag or delay at almost zero percent.
All of these plans come with a six-month free trial of F-Secure SAFE software. Line rental and your router are included free of charge.
As mentioned, all Vodafone Home Broadband customers will receive a six-month trial of the award-winning F-Secure SAFE anti-virus software. This system is designed to protect up to five devices against malware, spyware, viruses and hackers. It will also secure your online banking connection, and you can use it to enforce usage limits for children, providing complete online security for the entire family. You must manually activate your free trial once you’ve signed up with Vodafone.
You still have options available even if you live in an area not covered by Vodafone’s superfast broadband. Vodafone GigaCube is a router designed to transform 5G and 4G mobile networks into WiFi. You’ll be able to use the router as you would with any standard WiFi connection, but you’ll be using either Vodafone’s 5G or 4G network instead of a WiFi generated by a wired home connection. One of the benefits of this is that you can use your GigaCube anywhere where 4G and 5G signal is available, so it’s essentially portable WiFi that you just need to plug in to activate. You can connect up to 64 devices to 5G GigaCube and up to 20 devices with 4G GigaCube.
4G speeds are able to reach up to 300Mbps while 5G can reach 1Gbps, although these are of course subject to change due to a number of reasons, including local signal coverage, time-of-day, and traffic management systems employed by Vodafone for GigaCube users, which may limit usage for certain customers during periods of congestion.
You can choose an 18-month contract or a 30-day rolling contract, and choose between 100GB, 200GB, or unlimited data allowance per month.
Customers who are already on a Vodafone Pay Monthly mobile plan will benefit from discounts on Superfast broadband packages. If you’re already a Superfast customer with Vodafone, you can add mobile at a cheaper rate, and if you’re a new customer altogether, you can still benefit by packaging both services together at a discounted rate.
When you combine mobile and broadband services with Vodafone, you will also receive extras like free internet calling with Amazon Alexa and Vodafone OneNumber. Adding further Pay Monthly plans for other members of your household can lead to further discounts. Furthermore, if you’re a Vodafone Together customer and your home broadband service experiences issues, you’ll receive a 50GB boost to each mobile device on your account to make sure you can stay connected.
The Vodafone WiFi Hub is slickly designed and boasts strong, stable connection around your entire home. It’s one of the highest-rated routers available, boasting four LAN ports, two USB ports, and doubles the speeds capable by its predecessor. What really sets it apart is the ability to connect your router with the Vodafone app, giving you complete control over your WiFi in the palm of your hand.
Some of the great features of the Vodafone app include:
Device Boost can be used to prioritise your WiFi signal for chosen devices
The app’s WiFi Scheduler tool allows you to set customised online and offline times, which is a handy tool for parents or just to limit your own personal usage
You’ll be able to get friends and family connected to your WiFi easily using a QR code on the app
You can view a breakdown of each device connected to the app and monitor their activity
The Vodafone app also allows you to create a guest WiFi network that you can easily toggle on and off at the press of a button
All these features and more is why the Vodafone app won the Red Dot Award in 2019.
Vodafone isn’t currently offering any TV bundles alongside their broadband packages. Entertainment extras is something that many may expect from major broadband providers these days, but at the moment Vodafone chooses to focus its energy on offering the best possible connection, without distractions – and it shows through its low pricing and high-quality service. Of course, because Vodafone is still extremely new to the broadband game, there is the possibility that TV bundles could be in the works.
Vodafone do have a number of entertainment packages available for mobile customers, so if you’re bundling services with Vodafone Together, you can enjoy deals on Amazon Prime Video, Spotify Premium, Sky Sports Mobile TV, and Now TV Entertainment Pass on your phone.
Vodafone was named both Best Value Broadband Provider and Broadband Provider of the Year in the 2019 Uswitch awards. Meanwhile, in the 2019 Broadband Genie Home Broadband Awards, Vodafone was named Fastest Provider for upload speeds.
Customers praise Vodafone’s consistent speeds, transparency, and pricing. Vodafone’s Ultimate Broadband Guarantee, and the fact that prices will not automatically rise at the end of a contract are appealing offerings for Vodafone broadband customers. Customers say the switching process is seamless, and that customer service is easy to contact and quick to resolve issues.
While it doesn’t have the absolute highest speeds available on the market, Vodafone broadband offers perhaps the best value for money for the speeds it does offer – which are more than fast enough for most UK homes. The low pricing far outweighs Vodafone broadband’s lack of TV or entertainment extras. Vodafone GigaCube is a fantastic alternative to traditional WiFi, and Vodafone Together mobile and broadband bundles can bring you fantastic savings. Most importantly, many of the cheaper providers fall short on quality, but Vodafone manages to provide an excellent, stable connection while still maintaining incredibly low pricing.
