While for me, it's all working now, that'd be a great ad for the Advertising Standards Agency to compare to what's been going on!

Well, guess they could just use a real VF broadband connection when they made the ad!

Well we will see if that helps everyone....

Mine tonight has been buffering alot...while streaming things. And Xbox drop outs have been plentiful to.. on Ethernet cable to.

Unless that has been the quality router they supply. I'm very close to a 3rd party router that I'm hoping will stop or lesson the drop outs daily

Although Twitch is not buffering this end. Fast.com is all over the place. Several tests reveal anything from between 11 and 69 Mbit/s. I will show the graths for that soon......

 

Otherwise also between 17:00 and 17:55 this end: ...---...

Well this is just great...

My single has been around 14 Mbps all ##~## day... No buffering at 1080/60 though.

Been getting 60+ all week, yet now it's back to crappy speeds. It's ALWAYS the same crap with Vodafail.

 

IF ANYONE HAPPENS TO READ WHO'RE THINKING ABOUT JOINING VODAFONE D O N T

It's always the same with Vodafail really...

It's 2am and im getting full speed lol...  Sure "peak" time might lower your speed somewhat, but going from 60Mbps to under 10Mbps at peak times is a joke and shouldn't be allowed.

If we wanted slow crap speeds, we'd pay for crap slow speeds... But we're paying for high speeds, so give us the speed we're paying for.

Those last results taken between 7 and 7:55 pm yesterday.

Fast.com went up and down on 5 or 6 tests only 30 seconds to a minute apart.

So left it for a while and it did it again on the next 5 or 6 tests.

Has the fix been implemented yet?  My throughput is still terrible.  I also spoke to a few people at work today (South Yorskshire) that have Vodafone Fibre, both said the same, netflix is unwatchable and buffering all the time on IPTV, but that was last night.

Not every node which is by area has been done yet, not enough information to know how many is left or what has been done. Think there is another couple of nodes which you could be on one. It's a waiting game for you at the moment until they say its completed.
