Sky -> Vodafone


[link to this post]
 
Switch over day was today.

DPD delivered the vf router yesterday (should have been last Wed, but I've been away). at about 0900 I was disconnected from Sky, about 30 minutes later I plugged in the vf router and waited. By about 10 the vf router has connected and was working (set the adult filter, etc)

Then phoned the vf tech team and they texted me my logon name and password.

Removed the DHCP options in my 2925 for Sky, and set the PPoE details, remembering to add an @broadband.vodafone.co.uk to the end of the username (dslxxxxxxxxxx@broadband.vodafone.co.uk)

Initially I typed the details in and made a typo, so I forwarded the text to my PC and use the CLI to set the router, and then all was good.

I've just placed an order with VF to move over from Virgin because of latency.

How have you found your Vodafone broadband?

I used to be with them but before they let you use your own router, obviously the router was awful it didnt work well under demand. Have you found any issues with latency or congestion?

just moved over a couple of days ago from Plusnet.
using own router, ping is great.
Playing Overwatch, had 25ms on Plusnet.
Now it's 12ms on Vodafone. It used to be 13ms on Plusnet, but they did some server migration move which bumped up the ping.

How bad was the latency on Virgin, does it apply to everyone because of the Superhub 3?
Wanted to move to them, but held back because of all those problems.

Performance, especially in the evenings can be very variable, and thing thread performance can be very low at times. Guess that my vary from area to area.
