Vodafone Gigafast via Openreach FTTP, not just CityFibre?


[link to this post]
 
Has anyone ordered Vodafone Gigafast 900 and had it installed via Openreach FTTP (not CityFibre)?

Vodafone staff seem absolutely unaware that Gigafast may be available via Openreach FTTP... website shows I can order Gigafast 900, but only via phone, as it's not available to purchase online.

Vodafone's own speed checker shows "We estimate your broadband service will deliver download speeds ranging between 910 Mbps - 910 Mbps. Openreach confirms a minimum download speed of 455 Mbps." ...when I called to place an order, they said I couldn't, because I'm not in a CityFibre area.

Thanks smile

They definitely do sell in some limited areas of Bristol, Liverpool and Birmingham (may be more I've forgot) so you may have got through to a member of stuff unaware of this.

Presume you did call the number shown on the checker page that says to call.

The other option is to buy from BT, Sky, TalkTalk who will also sell the openreach options in that area, though Vodafone and BT are the two who do 900 Mbps versions of the ones who are big names.
