Hey @Windyboy, thank you for sending all that info across! I understand how important it is to have a stable connection, especially now.

After checking our network systems, I can see that the mast you are connecting to was down for a few hours on 22/09/2020. It's had some intermittent service since and yesterday our maintenance team completed some work on the masts to improve the service.

We do advise 48 hours for any work that has been completed to settle and your service to be back up and running. I would suggest running through the following settings as well on your device to see if this improves your service:

Settings > Mobile Data > Network Selection > Untick Automatic > Select any other network for a minute or two, and then reconnect to the Vodafone network 👍
