Anyone any experience of vodafone home broadband. Thinking of replacing my current provider TalkTalk Business ( ex Nildram user )
Only 8mb Max available on Exchange
Price and limits fit my requirements.

Thanks

It's BT Wholesale White Label like the Post Office and now Orange. Have you checked those two? Lots of people seem happy with the Post Office, with some very dissatisfied as you would expect.

How do you find it on the website? Do you need to be a Vodafone Mobile customer to find it? I believe you do to get it, but there doesn't seem to be any info.

I found it by typing Vodafone Home Broadband in Google
Appears in Help section of Vodafone UK
£25 / Month - Line, Anytime Calls and 40gb Broadband
Post office only have weekend call with broadband. I have anytime with TalkTalk
I wanted opinions as neighbour has vodafone and gets 5m download in evenings on 8mb Max
I get 400K to 2mb depending on night.
Vodafone looks like good option

Wow if I was seeing variations of 400 to 2 Meg on my provider regularly in the evening I would be off elsewhere.

A 20 to 30% drop is about normal at peak times. Some show no discernable drop at peak times.

When you are on an old exchange, with only adslMax. The options are limited.
Many suppliers want your line and 12 Month Contract. There is no trial period. Prices are not cheap either and, you could be stuck with a worse service.
I am retired and can use computer during day, where speed is 3Mb. ( Line is quoted 3-4Mb.
Cost is also a factor. I pay BT £10/ month for line and £5 for anytime calls. TalkTalk £14/ month for unlimited broadband.
Vodafone becomes an option as I have their mobile phone and costs are comparable.

The performance does vary between providers even when only ADSL Max is available at an exchange, even potentially between the white label BT Wholesale products, since it depends on how much the provider pays BT Wholesale to run the service.

TalkTalk on IPStream is a classic case of only providing just enough capacity.

O2 Access and Sky Connect being other crawlers. Just there to enable them to claim national coverage.
