  • Full Fibre 900 offers average download speeds of 910Mbps. Prices start from £45 per month (£55 per month for Pro Full Fibre 900).

In the following section, we’ll look at each of these plans in more detail.

Full Fibre 1 & Full Fibre 2

If you’re living at an address with access to Vodafone’s full fibre (FTTP) network, you’ll be able to get their Fibre 1 and Fibre 2 plans delivered using full fibre (FTTP) technology. You’ll also get a home phone service included. This is delivered using Digital Voice technology.

Vodafone’s entry-level broadband plan is known as Full Fibre 1. It gives you an average download speed of 38Mbps. This should suffice for everyday usage, including being able to stream ultra-HD video on one device at a time.

For faster download speeds, you can upgrade to Full Fibre 2. This gives you an average download speed of 67Mbps (enough for streaming ultra-HD video on two devices at a time).

You’re also able to get Fibre 1 and Fibre 2 on standard fibre broadband connections (using fibre-to-the-cabinet or FTTC technology). As a full fibre customer, this means you won’t necessarily benefit from the faster speeds available. However, you can still benefit from a more reliable service. The speeds should also be more consistent than on regular fibre broadband.

Full Fibre 100

To benefit from the faster speeds that are available on full fibre technology, we’d recommend getting Full Fibre 100 broadband for £25 per month.

Vodafone’s Full Fibre 100 gives you an average download speed of 100Mbps. This should suffice for the majority of households. For instance, you’ll be able to stream ultra-HD video on four devices at the same time. Alternatively, you can download a HD quality film in around 5 minutes.

In the majority of areas, the average upload speed on Full Fibre 100 is 18Mbps. However, if you’re living in a CityFibre area, you’ll get an average upload speed of 100Mbps at no extra cost.

In the past, Vodafone’s Full Fibre 100 plan was known as Superfast 100.

Full Fibre 200

When you choose Vodafone’s Full Fibre 200 plan, you’ll get average download speeds of 200Mbps on your connection. This is currently available from £30 per month.

A download speed of 200Mbps will allow you to stream ultra-HD video on up to 8 devices at the same time. Alternatively, you can download a HD-quality film in around 3 minutes, or you can download the latest Xbox or PlayStation game in about 30 minutes.

The following table shows Vodafone’s latest Full Fibre 200 deals:

You’ll get an average upload speed of 27Mbps in most areas (or 200Mbps if you’re living in a CityFibre area).

The Full Fibre 200 plan was previously known as Ultrafast 200.

Full Fibre 500

For even faster download speeds, you can choose Full Fibre 500 which comes with an average download speed of 500Mbps. This is currently available for £30 per month.

On the Full Fibre 500 plan, you’ll get a connection that’s about 13 times faster than standard fibre broadband. This means you can stream ultra-HD (4K) video on up to 20 devices at the same time. Alternatively, it will take around 1 minute to download a HD-quality film, or around 12 minutes to download the latest console game.

Full Fibre 900

If you’d like the fastest available download speeds on Vodafone, you can get Full Fibre 900 for £45 per month. This plan is also known as Gigafast Broadband.

With Vodafone’s Full Fibre 900, you’ll get an average download speed of 910Mbps. This is 25 times faster than standard fibre broadband. It will allow you to stream ultra-HD video on around 36 devices at the same time. You’ll also be able to download a HD-quality film in about 36 seconds, or the latest console game in about 7 minutes.

Prices may sometimes differ if you’re living in a CityFibre area so it’s worth checking on the Vodafone website for any special deals that may be available at your address.

Vodafone Together

If you’re a Vodafone Pay Monthly mobile customer, you’ll get a £3 per month discount on all of Vodafone’s full fibre plans. This means, for instance, you’ll pay just £22 per month for Vodafone's Full Fibre 100 (reduced from the normal price of £25 per month).

In addition to the £3/month discount on Vodafone’s full fibre broadband, you’ll get a 30% discount on any additional SIM cards that you add to your account. According to Vodafone, this would allow a family of 4 to “save up to £380 a year” (this calculation is based on them having Pro Full Fibre 1 broadband and 4 Vodafone Unlimited Max SIM cards).

For more information, see the Vodafone Together webpage.

Vodafone Full Fibre Speeds

On Vodafone’s full fibre broadband, you’ll be able to get an average download speed between 38Mbps and 910Mbps. This will depend on your location and on the plan you choose. You’ll also benefit from a minimum download speed guarantee, which will typically be around 50% of your estimated download speed.

The average upload speed depends on whether you’re living in an Openreach or CityFibre area:

  • If you’re living in an Openreach area (covers approx 8 million homes), you’ll get an average upload speed between 9Mbps and 105Mbps. The upload speed will be listed separately on the results page when you enter your address on Vodafone’s website.
  • If you’re living in a CityFibre area (covers approx 0.8 million homes), you’ll get an average upload speed between 41Mbps and 910Mbps. This will be listed as the estimated “download & upload speed” on Vodafone’s website. You can benefit from symmetrical speeds in a CityFibre area so the upload speed on your connection will be equal to the download speed.

The following table shows the average download speed and upload speed you can expect on Vodafone’s full fibre broadband:

Vodafone Broadband Plan Download Speed

On some of the faster plans like Full Fibre 900, it may be difficult to get the maximum available speeds on a Wi-Fi connection (this is due to interference, Wi-Fi coverage limitations, etc). For better speeds, you can use a wired connection to your Hub instead. Alternatively, you can get Vodafone’s Pro Broadband which comes with a Super WiFi Booster included.

Vodafone Full Fibre Hub

In most cases, you’ll get Vodafone’s WiFi Hub router included when you sign up for their full fibre broadband. This produces a Wi-Fi network in your home that your other devices are able to connect to. You’ll also get 4 Gigabit Ethernet sockets for connecting wired devices to your home network.

If you choose a Vodafone Pro II broadband plan, you’ll get an upgrade to Vodafone’s latest Ultra Hub router. This supports Wi-Fi 6E technology, giving you even faster Wi-Fi speeds on compatible devices. You’ll also get a Super WiFi 6E booster included for improving the coverage in your home.

In addition to Vodafone’s full fibre router, you’ll get an Openreach modem (ONT) installed in your home if you don’t have one already. Alternatively, in CityFibre areas, you’ll get a CityFibre modem installed instead.

Coverage & Availability

Vodafone’s full fibre broadband uses fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) technology through the Openreach and CityFibre networks.

As of August 2022, Vodafone’s full fibre broadband is available in about 8.8 million homes (approximately 28% of UK households). According to Vodafone, they have “Full Fibre in more homes than anyone else”, due to the combination of the Openreach and CityFibre networks.

Switching to Vodafone Full Fibre

If you’re switching your broadband provider from another company to Vodafone, it’s easy to transfer your service.

Start by ordering your new Vodafone broadband plan online. When you do this, you’ll be given the option to keep your current home phone number, or Vodafone can give you a brand new phone number.

It normally takes around 2 weeks for your Vodafone broadband service to go live, though you’ll continue receiving broadband from your current provider whilst you wait. If it’s your first time getting full fibre broadband, an engineer visit will be scheduled to install it.

In most cases, Vodafone will automatically contact your old broadband provider to cancel the old service for you. However, if you’re a Virgin Media customer, you’ll need to contact them separately to cancel.

    I’m in Coventry and my street is now connected to the Vodafone/City Fibre gigafast network. I am currently on Virgin Media’s 1.1Gb service, but want to get Vodafone’s 900Mb/900Mb service because of the upstream speed and the reputed low pings for gaming. However, there is one obstacle. No one is able to tell me whether or not I can use my own router (GT-AX11000). Virgin allow you to switch their Hub into modem-only mode. Apparently Vodafone don’t. Their customer service operators don’t seem to have the training to tell me, with 100% certainty, that I can use my own router for routing instead of Vodafone’s hub. For me, this is a deal breaker. Can anyone tell me if I can and also, how it is done?

    • On Vodaphone citylink you can use your own router I used asus RT-ax86u, Just ask then for the router login details on chat. Its an email type address and password, you need to set vlan to 911

    • Vince, I recently got Vodafone+CityFibre 900/900. I’m using my own router/firewall. The fiber ONT they install has an ethernet jack. So physical connection then goes fiber ONT to WAN on the router. The only thing you need to get is the PPPoE login details for your connection and tell your router to use those on WAN. You can get the PPPoE login (username+password+VLAN) via Vodafone’s online support chat. They straight up gave me a wrong VLAN id, but googling about I’ve found a bunch of people hitting the same issue and saying to try id 911 — which worked. Happy days. So as long as your GT-AX11000 box can connect via PPPoE and can specify the VLAN, then yeah should be alright. Your mileage may vary.

  • The upload speeds have changed considerably.
    I renewed my superfast 2 contract during 2020 and the upload is now 1.5 Mbps or so maximum.

  • If I were to buy a house which already has FTTP (and thus no copper connections for the landline), would I be able to downgrade to a Superfast 1 or 2, or would I have to buy a much faster service (which I would not actually have a need for)?

    • Hi Nick,
      Thanks for your comment. It should still be possible to get Superfast 1 and 2 on a FTTP connection 🙂
      Hope this helps,
      Ken
