Vodafone Together offers a 5G mobile SIM card along with ‘superfast’ fibre home broadband from £31/month.
In the UK, Vodafone has launched a range of new Vodafone Together plans which combine a 5G mobile SIM card and Superfast fibre broadband. The Together plans are available from £31/month, or from £43/month if you’d like unlimited data on your SIM card.
Compared to buying your SIM card and fibre broadband as separate products, there’s a saving of £3/month when buying it as a Vodafone Together bundle. For a limited time, you’ll also get a free Amazon Echo Plus with support for Vodafone’s OneNumber service (allowing you to make and receive phone calls using your normal mobile number through Amazon Alexa).
In this article, we’ll review Vodafone Together, including the 5G mobile SIM card and the ‘superfast’ fibre home broadband. We’ll also look at the inclusive Amazon Echo Plus with Vodafone OneNumber before investigating the level of coverage available on the service.
You can build a combined Vodafone Together package from £31/month, or from £43/month if you’d like a SIM card with unlimited data.
Additional SIM cards can also be added to your Vodafone Together package with a 15% discount on the normal monthly price.
5G Mobile SIM Card
The first part of your Vodafone Together package is a SIM card that you can use inside your mobile phone.
You can choose from either a Vodafone Red or a Vodafone Unlimited plan. Vodafone Red has a limited data allowance, whereas Vodafone Unlimited has uncapped data at a range of different download speeds.
The following table shows the six options you can choose from for your mobile phone SIM card:
It’s possible to access 5G coverage with a compatible handset on the Vodafone Red 5GB plan and above.
If you choose an unlimited data plan, download speed limits will apply to Unlimited Lite (up to 2Mbit/s) and Unlimited (up to 10Mbit/s). The Unlimited Max price plan offers uncapped download speeds. For more information, please read our full review of Vodafone’s unlimited data plans.
Superfast Fibre Broadband
The second part of your Vodafone Together package is the ‘superfast’ fibre home broadband plan.
You’ll get Vodafone’s Superfast 1 fibre broadband package with an average download speeds of 35Mbit/s. The normal cost of this plan is £23/month, but you’ll get a £3/month discount through Vodafone Together.
As a customer of Vodafone Together, you can also benefit from Vodafone’s Stay Connected Promise. If, for any reason, there’s a fault with your home broadband connection, you’ll get a 50GB data boost added to all of your mobile phone SIM cards.
Amazon Alexa & Vodafone OneNumber
For a limited time only, Vodafone is offering a free Amazon Echo Plus when you sign up for Vodafone Together. This would normally cost you £139.99 if you buying directly from Amazon, making it a pretty good freebie.
The Echo Plus smart speaker can act as a hub for your home (e.g. you can use it to control your smart home devices, to listen to music, the radio and more).
Vodafone customers can use the OneNumber service in conjunction with their Echo Plus smart speaker. This allows you to make and receive phone calls through your Echo Plus smart speaker, using the normal phone number on your Vodafone account.
After you sign up for Vodafone Together, you’ll be sent a unique code to redeem your free speaker. The code will need to be used before the 31st December 2019.
Vodafone Together Discount
You’ll get a £3/month Vodafone Together Discount when taking your package. This is illustrated in the following table:
|Mobile SIM Card||SIM Card Price||Broadband Price||Together Discount||Combined Price|
|Red 1GB||£11/month||£23/month||£3/month off||£31/month|
|Red 5GB||£15/month||£23/month||£3/month off||£35/month|
|Red 20GB||£20/month||£23/month||£3/month off||£40/month|
|Unlimited Lite||£23/month||£23/month||£3/month off||£43/month|
|Unlimited Max||£30/month||£23/month||£3/month off||£50/month|
You can also add additional SIM cards to your account, with a 15% discount on the normal price for all SIM cards that are added. For instance, it would cost £19.55/month to add another Unlimited Lite SIM card to your package (as opposed to the full monthly price of £23/month).
Vodafone is the first UK company to offer a combined package consisting of a 5G mobile SIM card and fibre broadband at home.
The closest alternative is BT Plus which offers a 4G SIM card and fibre broadband in one combined package. At the time of writing, BT Plus is substantially more expensive, starting from £61.99/month for a 4G SIM card with 1GB data and superfast fibre broadband with an average speed of 67Mbit/s.
Virgin Media offers Oomph bundles consisting of fibre broadband and a 4G SIM card (coverage from EE). At the time of writing, you can get a Oomph bundle from £41/month with 2GB of mobile data at 4G speeds and fibre broadband.
As well as comparing mobile SIM card and fibre broadband packages, you should also continue shopping around and looking for individual deals. For instance, see our guide to the best value SIM cards for your mobile phone and the best 5G SIM-only deals.
If you’re looking for a 4G or 5G-powered home broadband service, you can also consider Vodafone’s GigaCube service. This starts from £30/month for 100GB of data, or £50/month if you’d like an unlimited data plan.
