we are starting to come together as a community because we are all having the same issues over and over and vodafone seams to be washing every thing under the carpet etc also the media team needs to be replaced with more qualified advisers lets all help each other please read and share this post please https://forum.vodafone.co.uk/t5/Broadband-Home-Phone/i-have-emailed-the-complaints-team/td-p/262102
Regards the throughput, the Aspire Speedtest server in gateshead is not the best.
So for the below, I'm closer to Gateshead than I am to York. Also because of the time of day, I did these tests over WiFi, and there were others here online, as a result the speed is about 1.5Mbpsless than it would be pure!
And for the record regards the slow connection speeds here at least, it's purely an OpenReach issue with a cabinet that is driving them nuts!
*Note to the admins, don't worry about the IP showing, by the time this was posted that had already been changed!
*edit - see date in images
Hard to express how envious I am of your signal - though not the throughput!
And the reason behind my low bits per tone.
Hey @Anonymous, your obviously on a very short landline going by your attainable rate,. Are you testing this over an Ethernet connection? Also, have you raised a fault with our Technical Specialists for this?
sadly it make no differnce whe testing over wifi or wired, yes i have talked to your Technical Specialists unfaunatly they are unable to move away from trying to blame the issue on me using my own router.
ive even asked to leave sadly no one is lisening.
Are you actually using your own router to test this then? If so, what make and model is it, and are there any marked differences with our router? Also, is your throughput speed consistently slow, or does it vary depending of the time of day or night?
im using a draytek 2860, i have to use this router for out of hours for my work, i asked if it was ok and if i could have a static ip and the answer was yes... i was refunded for the VF router and it was returned.
i was told nearly 2 weeks ago they would make a decision if i was able to leave penalty free and would be notified in 7 days... LOL lets see how long it takes........ the throughput issue seem to be when the network is busy and then you see strange routing of the packets hopping over to the us and back Humm... youtube bbc i player videos buffer randomly online gaming lags , as for trying to use voip, and all of the issue disappear when using a o2 4g dongle connected to the router, but there is nothing wrong with VF network.
YAY packet loss today, first test is over a vpn when i can access the sight, second is over Vodafone when the page times out and is inaccessable....... QUILITY Broardband NOT!!!

5 miniuts later it has returned, it must have pop out for a smoke....
@joe I JUST WANT TO LEAVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!! without penatility, i was never given a refernce number, im starting to beleve i was just transfered from one agent to another.
as i type this im watching youtube buffering the joys.
@joe I JUST WANT TO LEAVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!! without penalty
Keep at it. I got a letter today confirming I can leave penalty free. It can be done.
so i called the cancellations team, talked to a very nice lady unfortunately she was from a none uk call center and struggled to understand my northern accent. the conversation end as she advise she was unable to help me and would get some to call me, (im still waiting) interestingly she could see details on my last call but didn't seem to be able to find the request to leave, i was offered a discount which i politely decline.
So what bring me here today? I set a game off downloading on xbox at 07:30am and it finshed downloading at 13:30 - even ms is not that slow... (My xbox is connect by an ethernet cable)
It sounds like this may have been passed to a manager, or possibly our Customer Relations team @Anonymous.
You'll receive a call shortly.
Please let us know how you get on.
The joys of vodaphone broardband.....
so my daughter had been studing hard on a home based course and today she had to take her exam, this is online via a website and once you start you have a time limit to complete it, she got about 15mins in then the website started to timeout, she managed to get reconnected to see the timer hit 00:03 time left. so she contacted the people running the exam and was told the they had had no issue with there servers and other student has completed the exam at the same time as her, if she can show the internt had been offline at the time of the exam then they would let her resit for free,
ive just check my router and it shows it has been online for 52 hrs, as she is a poor student i now have to find the mony for her to resit..
THANKS VODAPHONE not.
