Vodafone Gigafast FTTH Broadband Cuts Mobile Discount to £3

New customers of Vodafone UK’s Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) based Gigafast Broadband ISP packages, which are based off Cityfibre’s £4bn roll-out programme, may like to know that the provider will today adopt the same pricing strategy as on their FTTC based “superfast” plans (i.e. £3 discount for existing mobile subscribers).

Until now existing Pay Monthly mobile customers could claim a £5 discount off the Gigafast service, but from today the provider will be changing that and as a result those with an existing mobile plan will save just £3 off the monthly price.

As usual customers can also expect to receive a reasonable wireless broadband router, unlimited usage and will be lock to a 24 month minimum contract term. The option of an Apple 4K TV with a 1 year Apple TV subscription and unlimited anytime calls also still exists on their 900Mbps tier, albeit at extra cost (£63 a month). All speeds are symmetric (same speed both ways).

Gigafast 100Mbps
Price for Mobile Users: £25 a month
Price for non-Mobile: £28 a month

Gigafast 200Mbps
Price for Mobile Users: £32 a month
Price for non-Mobile: £35 a month

Gigafast 500Mbps
Price for Mobile Users: £42 a month
Price for non-Mobile: £45 a month

Gigafast 900Mbps
Price for Mobile Users: £52 a month
Price for non-Mobile: £55 a month

At the time of writing this change isn’t yet live, but it is due to be implemented today.

    This is incorrect. Gigafast subscribers have always been given a £5 monthly discount for being a Vodafone pay monthly mobile customer. I have received the ongoing discount every month since joining last year. It has been advertised since the service started a couple of years ago.

      Ah.. never saw that on the product page, only ever seen the single price. But the change itself is not incorrect, the prices above are what we’ve been told it will change to today.

    2. Avatar IM says:

      Looking at it in detail – this is actually a price increase! Base prices have increased by £3 a month and by reducing the mobile discount from £5 to £3 a month- that represents a £3 to £5 price rise depending if you are a non-mobile or mobile customer respectively.

    About on par with Virgin media for pricing but Symmetrical speeds

    1. Avatar SimonR says:

      Yep. I’m on Virgin and CityFibre laid the cables outside my house a couple of weeks ago. Patiently waiting for them to go live.

  3. Avatar Daveyo says:

    I would be curious to see talktalk’s pricing once they start wholesale on CF.

  4. Avatar Dan says:

    And they’ve increased the prices by £3 now, it was £38 at first for 500/500, then they had a sale @ £30 for a few weeks and then back to £38, then a few weeks back they rose the to £42 and now £45, ridiculous

    Paying £33 right now for their 500/500 as we negotiated a price but a bit worrying what the price will be after the contract ends

    1. Avatar John Uncle says:

      @Dan

      Indeed. The 900/900 Vodafone Gigafast package started at £48, was reduced to £42 briefly and now seems to be £52.

      I think all of these characters – Vodafone, Sky, Talktalk etc must be trying to “front run” (if that’s the correct term?) the future marketplace and do what BT is doing as well – lock in customers in contracts quickly at this higher price, just before everyone offers the FTTP Openreach product. When they finally get round to the situation where any Openreach FTTP line can get Full Fibre from any provider, then the prices would most likely come down.

      I cannot understand why the Vodafone Gigafast 900/900 price used to be £42-48, TalkTalk UFO (900/900) (only in a specified area) is £29, yet BT (900 Down) is £59. Vodafone appear to be vying for public enemy number one with BT if they’re randomly increasing prices like this. Or else, are they going to release an Openreach product at the same rate as their Gigafast product?

      Given economies of scale, and how far other countries are as per that OECD table, prices seem way too high.

      I don’t understand why BT and Sky are also trying to upsell what appears to be nothing more than Freeview TV with an add on “Basic TV” products that one can already get with an aerial?

    2. Avatar CarlT says:

      The rest of the OECD doesn’t require average peak time speed advertising. A product can hit full speed between 2am and 6am in many places and that’s fine, even if it slows to a tenth that at peak.

      Pricing should be considered in PPP terms, too, rather than the raw number.

    “As usual … will be lock to a 24 month minimum contract term.”

    This is also a change. Previous contracts were 18 months. I signed up three weeks ago for their 100/100 Gigafast and am on an 18 months contract.

  6. Avatar TrueFibre says:

    Everyone stop your moaning. Vodafone is a hell of a lot better BT. BT wants £73.99 a month for 900Mbps

    1. Avatar Daniel says:

      £73.99 a month ? Its only Price: £59.99 a month for 24 months (£67.99 thereafter) for 1000Mb/s

    2. Avatar TrueFibre says:

      Yes I have just checked it they must of reduced it because they were getting slammed by me on Twitter. I gave them a screenshot between BT and Vodafone prices because at that time BT’s old price for 900 Mbps was 24 month contract for £73.99 a month and Vodafone was £48 a month. I order to get what you want you to need hold them Accountable.

    3. Avatar CarlT says:

      Yeah they absolutely reduced it because of you tweeting at them, TrueFibre. FTSE 100 companies often reprice products because some random slams them on Twitter.

      It’s always been £59.99. The price you are quoting is 900 + Halo 2 + I think some other extras too.

    4. Avatar Spoffle says:

      I’m paying £50 a month for my BT 900Mb connection, with halo.
