Welcome to Vodafone Community
Seeking advice on how to terminate my contract early - have only been with Vodafone fibre broadband for 1 month but am consistently getting poor download speeds during the evening peak. Anywhere from 2 to 5Mbps between 6pm and 11pm.
Been in touch via twitter and am quoted the min download speed is met (26.5) due to the sync speed to the router being higher (44.2) and therefore no option to terminate without a fee.
Totally appreciate your frustrated with this.
" When your broadband is installed, we'll optimise your connection to ensure you get the best possible speed. However, doing this can sometimes cause some short drops in service or unexpectedly slow speeds for the first 10 days and in extreme cases up to 30 days. Please don’t turn off or reset your router during this time. "

As has been pointed out, you need to follow the dispute procedure to get out of the contract without a fee!
However, with your contract to hand, you'll see that you have a guaranteed download speed, not a sync speed, if Vodafone try to tell you the two are one and the same, then you need to point out that they are not. This has already been confirmed by OFCOM.
Thanks for the advice, I showed Speedtest results with download speeds below the minimum but they didn't acknowledge this and pointed back to their line test sync speed. Am looking to raise a formal complaint now.
Make sure to pop your username and link to this thread in your message too, this will save you having to explain again and we can help you quicker.
Activation date: 27/12, today is 29/12 and my download speed is 8Mbs rather than promised 35Mbs. SyncRate shows all fine, yet when I check broadband speed on my PC is substandard, also twich.tv is lagging.
I understand I can cancel my contract within 14 day cooling off period. I have read about the 30 day adjust period ##~## by Vodafone and all your problems, on forums not interested in staying and than having to go through complaint procedure.
How will may first DD be calculated and how to go about returning the router? Will I be charged?
Can I do a switch to another provider?
Hey @m0n1c23k, thanks for getting in touch; sorry about the delay getting back to you. I'm sorry to hear you're not getting the speeds you'd expect and you're thinking of leaving. Have you contacted our Cancellations team since you last got in touch?
I think this is something I'm going to be looking into, as a sync rate of 67mb, and a download rate of 4mb is unacceptable.
Fast/Speedofme/Speedtest.net all show the same.
