4G & 5G Coverage
All of Vodafone’s Pay Monthly customers have access to their 4G network, offering 99% population coverage across the UK. You can access up to Category 9 LTE download speeds (up to 450Mbit/s) on Vodafone’s 4G network, though actual download speeds will vary based on the coverage in your area and based on the price plan you choose.
If you have a 5G-ready handset like the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, you’ll be able to access 5G coverage from Vodafone’s new 5G network. This offers faster downloads along with greater network capacity and a reduced amount of latency. On the Unlimited Max price plan, you can access uncapped 5G speeds. In theory, 5G download speeds can go up to 1Gbit/s (1,000Mbit/s), but average download speeds of 150-250Mbit/s are more realistic on today’s 5G networks.
Vodafone’s unlimited data price plans come with no limits on how much you can download each month. This means you can use your mobile phone without needing to worry about ever running out of data or being subject to hidden fair usage limits.
When choosing an unlimited data price plan, you’ll need to decide between the Unlimited Lite, Unlimited and Unlimited Max price plans. The three plans differ based on the maximum download speed you’re able to get:
- Unlimited Lite (up to 2Mbit/s) is designed for browsing and social media, messaging, e-mail and online music streaming.
- Unlimited (up to 10Mbit/s) is designed for streaming HD-quality video, sharing photos, making video calls, downloading apps and playing single player games.
- Unlimited Max (with the fastest available speeds) is designed for super-fast downloads, streaming video in Ultra HD (4K UHD) quality, multiplayer gaming on-the-go and tethering to multiple devices at the same time.
For more information, see our full guide to unlimited data plans on Vodafone.
Customers signing up for a Vodafone Pay Monthly contract will get access to Vodafone’s Global Roaming service. This allows you to use your mobile phone at no extra charge in 48 European Roam-free destinations. In another 104 Roam-further destinations, it will cost £6/day to use your normal UK allowances (up to a maximum of 25GB of data per month).
Customers signing up for an Unlimited Max plan will additionally receive access to Global Roaming Plus. This gives you inclusive roaming in a total of 77 destinations including most of Europe, the USA, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and more.
Vodafone offers 4G roaming in 137 destinations. They also offer 5G roaming in 47 towns and cities across Italy, Spain and Germany if you have a 5G-ready handset and price plan.
Customers who sign up for a Vodafone Pay Monthly mobile contract can benefit from Vodafone’s VeryMe Rewards programme. This gives you access to a range of exclusive discounts, offers and giveaways from brands like Asos, Costa Coffee, Greggs and Vue. The offers available through VeryMe Rewards change on a week-by-week basis.
2G, 3G & 4G Coverage
Vodafone offers 99% population coverage on their 2G, 3G and 4G network in the UK.
Before signing up as a new customer on Vodafone, it’s worth using their online coverage checker to make sure there’s coverage available where you live. You can enter your postcode on the Vodafone website to check the coverage available:
For more information, see our full guide to the coverage on Vodafone.
If you have a 5G-ready device like the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, it’ll be possible to access Vodafone’s new 5G mobile network.
At present, 5G coverage is available on Vodafone in the following UK towns and cities:
|Now Live||38 towns and cities are live on Vodafone 5G (January 2020)|
Bebington, Belfast, Birkenhead, Birmingham, Bolton, Bootle, Bristol, Cardiff, Cheadle, Droylsden, Eccles, Edinburgh, Gatwick, Glasgow, Horwich, Huyton-with-Roby, Isle of Scilly, Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Llandudno, London, Manchester, Mangotsfield, Newbury, Paisley, Penarth, Plymouth, Prestwich, Rochdale, Salford, Solihull, Stockport, Stoke-on-Trent, Stretford, Wallasey, Warrington, Wolverhampton
|6 towns and cities planned|
Blackpool, Bournemouth, Guildford, Portsmouth, Reading, Southampton (End of 2019)
If you’re living in an area that is yet to receive 5G coverage, you’ll still be able to access older forms of coverage like 3G and 4G. 5G coverage will then become accessible on your phone when it eventually launches in your area.
Keeping Your Phone Number
If you’re switching from another mobile network to Vodafone to take advantage of their Black Friday deals, it’s a straightforward process to bring your phone number with you.
To do so, you’ll need to request a PAC Code from your current network. You can usually get a PAC Code immediately through your mobile network’s website or app. Alternatively, text PAC to 65075 and you’ll receive a PAC Code back via text message.
Once you’ve gotten the PAC Code from your current network, order your new phone or SIM card from the Vodafone website. Once it arrives, you can provide your PAC Code through Vodafone’s online form. Your phone number transfer will then normally take place on the next working day.
For a step-by-step guide on transferring your phone number to Vodafone, please select your current mobile network from the drop-down menu below:
