Internet speed

Gigafast Query

3: Seeker

What average speed i would get on Gigafast if i paid for the 900/900 service ?

Would the speed drop quite a bit depending on external traffic on the network ?

What speed guarantees are provided by Vodafone regarding this ?

Any issues with streaming or downloading from usenet ?

many thanks

Chalky

All I can give is my experience.

I've had the 500/500 product for a few weeks now.

I get 500/500 24/7 when running OVH speedtest to a UK server.

Usually it's a little over 500 both directions.

The Up speed takes a few seconds to reach 500 since (I did read why that was somewhere) but it's pretty rock solid when it gets there.

The problem I had was updating all my internal routing to get that speed throughout the house (a good problem to have!).

I'm using my own router - and Asus AC56U for reference - simply because the VF supplied one doesn't play nice with my own VOIP service (LocalPhone).

 

My 2c worth...

Cheers Andy, I am using the asus ac68u on my fttc connection at the moment, and it works great and allows me to use a vpn on the router.

Your speeds sound good so that is promising, and most of the house is hardwired apart from mobile devices, so hopefully that will help with speeds.

If you're hard-wiring I don't think you'll have any problems.  The only speed reductions I get is due to old and low-spec Wifi adapters in mobiles and laptops.   I have the 500 service and the lowest speed with an old mobile is 12M whereas its 500-520M+ with Ethernet and ac WIFI cards like the new iPads.
