Title: Vodafone
not very pleased that I barely receive signal at my house, and no internet connection at all in my village, (would be a lot worse if I didn't have wifi, however slow it is).

My 4G speeds are nothing to write home about, I receive faster speeds on my TalkTalk ADSL at home, and that's saying something. And I really don't like that they automatically block websites!

The only really redeeming quality is that as a part of my contract I have three months unlimited data, whereas otherwise, on my 5gb(?) limit i would likely go over otherwise.

Vodafone is infamous for sneaking upon unsuspecting customers and hitting them with 3g charges not requested in the first place.

Having said which, I would like to draw your attention to cause of my present irritation.

I am in receipt of a SMS from vodafone informing me that I have consumed 400 MB of data which is preposterous as I house is sufficiently covered by WIFI and this is a house phone and no such service was availed by me.

You don't get much in the way of services with Mobile Broadband, it's just a raw connection and since nobody does any different then I can't really rate it down.

No extra services, but I didn't sign-up expecting any. Service is reliable but less 3G coverage is outweighed by faster masts.


Never had a problem with support, UK based etc.


Highest speed acheived (10/10):

6.3Mb (Down)
1.44Mb (Up)

Overhead (error checking) eats up a lot of bandwidth, like with wifi you never acheive the full throughput (54Mbps for example).

Average: ~2Mb / 1.2Mb.

Upload is faster than my home connection.


Price/Speed is great, O2 and Three could never compete on this level.

UPDATE: Just got a phone contract with them, hopefully I can beat the max down/up speeds sometime.

I was with vodafone for 18 months and found that my speeds were getting slower the longer I was with them. The service was also becoming increasingly unstable.

I live in Central London which I'm sure is the worst place to try and use such a service but it is the capital city, should we not expect good and stable speeds?

The best speeds achieved were 2.1 Mbps but I was averaging under a 1 Mbps, at around 500 kbps.

The pricing wasn't bad, and I also signed up to there international tariffs, which to be honest were still expensive, but better than any of the other operators.

Customer service helped me get set up on my PC as I had a few problems with dll errors, but they eventually got fixed.

Overall an OK service, but not good enough for me to stick with them.

Title: AVOID
Well I unpacked the USB Stick and plugged it into my "Free" laptop and it installed the software and in a few min's I was up and running, but the connection only lasted a few mins then cut out, I then decided to try later on in the day and every time I tred to connect to the 3g Network a Error in there own programme came up, So I thought I would call Customer services, What a waist of time that was, Today I'm taking it all back to Cancel the contract with Vodaphone. The Service was unreliable and the customer service even worse.

Title: Quick test

I managed to give my friends Vodafone Mobile Broadband connection a try recently while attempting to figure out which was the best operator to choose for my remote working. Speed varied a lot between 700Kbps and 1.6Mbps but I was quite pleased with this, though for whatever reason a number of websites had loading problems, probably issues with me moving between indoor and outdoor locations.

Vodafone, like Three (3), is fairly well priced, though I'd probably rather have Three's 5GB for the same price as Vodafone's 3GB and take the lower speed. You don't get much in the way of services with Mobile Broadband, it's just a raw connection and since nobody does any different then I can't really rate it down.

Pretty good so far, can't complain and apparently customer support is reasonable but occasionally a bit slow according to the owner.
