1. What Is Vodafone Gigafast Broadband?

Gigafast broadband from Vodafone is the company's fastest home broadband, offering top average downloads speeds of 900Mbps using a full fibre connection direct from the telephone exchange to the home. Vodafone Gigafast speeds are up to 14 times faster than the average fixed broadband service in the UK, including Vodafone's standard Superfast fibre broadband packages. Vodafone has partnered with network infrastructure providers City Fibre and Openreach to offer its range of Gigafast packages, with prices starting from £25 a month.

2. Vodafone Gigafast Speeds

Customers have a choice of 4 Gigafast download speeds to choose from; 100Mbps, 200Mbps, 500Mbps and 900Mbps. Uploads speeds are the same as download speeds (this is commonly referred to as symmetrical speeds) if you reside within a City Fibre network build area like Aberdeen, Coventry and Northampton (see further below for a full list of locations). Those households located in an Openreach network build area like Liverpool, Birmingham or Bristol will experience slower upload speeds compared to download speeds (this is know as asymmetrical speeds). This may typically mean a 100Mbps upload speed with the Vodafone Gigafast 900Mbps package.

3. Which Areas Are Covered By Vodafone Gigafast Broadband?

Vodafone Gigafast Broadband is now available in 15 towns and cities across the UK, with rollout expected to reach 3 million UK homes and businesses by the summer of 2021.
