Well basicly im taking it to the forums now as live chat and even a call via phone has been compleatly dissapointing! My router has been dropping out for over 3 weeks almost every day and im getting fed up as when I was with BT the HH5B worked perfectly but vodafone just keep doing line tests saying nothing is wrong which they are correct but they just dont understand I want a new router!

 

Is there someone on here that can help me get a new router?

It's disappointing to hear you're having problems with these router drop outs @hardstyle2259 and I know how frustrating this must be.

Are you you're using your own router? If so, it could be the router's not configured correctly and we'll need to update the settings from our side.

Of course, we'll be more than happy to investigate further and help to get this resolved for you. So we can do this, I've sent you a private message with details on how to get in touch.

You will get no joy from these idiots. Took me over a week to get a service up and running - that was finally done on 17th May. Since then, I've had constant dropouts and speeds of between 7mb and 23mb - I was getting consitent speeds of 76mb with EE. If you're within 30 days cancel. If you're over 30 days, cancel and get your early repayment charges paid by someone else. I've made a total of 3 official complaints - 1 about the poor speed. After the first one they told me someone from tech team would contact me within 72 hours, The other 2 complaints were because I've had no effing contact. STILL waiting since 6th JUNE - I cant't wait any longer for the ombudsman - I've just signed up with BT. http://home.bt.com/-nbsp/switching-to-bt-broadband-has-never-been-easier-11363926763644 Absolute bunch of useless muppets (trying not to swear).

If you go on live chat, explain that you have been having problems and ask for your log-in details.

Then get yourself a router and set it up with the supplied details.

I've been with Vodafone just over a week and today is the first day with my new Tp-Link N300 9970v2 and so far its a big improvement.

From what I can see, the Vodafone supplied router is the problem.

I’ve just got back to say this , I left this pile of no good Vodafone ages ago , went thru the chains of everything and managed to sack these nasty lot, they couldn’t fix anything at the end of the day and got a different broad band supplier , to which they tried the same tricks so ended up sacking them to, I’ve heard sky is about the only people that seems good or even bt 

 

hope you all gets sorted but dint hold your breath, sack em now boycott these lot they promise and promise all the time and you just waste your time

 

vodafone should not be showing that rubbish tv advert they the fastest “ eh no”

you get money back if your speeds are slow “eh no”

 

all rubbish

 

vodafone should have that song by ub40 for there tv adverts “promises and lies”

 

perfect song for them

 

good luck customers as said don’t hold your breath 

 

goodbye everyone I’ve escaped from Alcatraz (Vodafone)

Have same problem,internet dropping out everytime I use it. First time reported by live chat,spend over 1 hour - no results,disconnected chat,after reconnecting was same time waste . Second time was talking over the phone,spend over 1 hour,did everything what advisor told me,then he said I will get contacted by technician in 72 hours,who will solve my problem,and told me leave router connected on test socket. 3rd week already- no technician, no help,no problem solve,no constant internet and deconstructed phone socket.

Please,give me some productive response.

Kind regards,

Alex .

I have had the same problems for over a year still not getting my guaranteed speeds.

router dropping out constantly of which this is the second router I have had, I never had a problem when I had a BT router.

i have 2 open reach engineers out this month alone. But still have the same issues. Engineer said the only way I would get guaranteed speed would be if I was put on 80/20 download /upload
