Re: Vodafone Ultrafast/Gigafast (Cityfibre 1Gb rollout)

The 500/500 is £20 more expensive for me at £38 a month but the uplift in speed is a lot more.

Still a good deal I think. My BT FTTP is £60/mth for 314/50!

Still waiting patiently in Monkston Park for them to come here. Annoyingly I'm now at contract renewal with my BT FTTP service and don't know what to do... They only offer 18-month contract renewals now. I can see me signing up to a new 18-month contract (say 150/30 for £45/month) only for CF/VF to arrive a month later where I could've got 500/500 for £33/month frown

Wow that does look a bit rough, but in a years time it will probably blend in.
TBH if I could get 1Gb fibre, id have them come through my house if they wanted to!

Thanks. Narrow trenching, 100mm, with laterals spurring off. Fairly normal stuff. VM's contractors have been somewhat tidier than that with their FTTP, though.

Yup,

I'm on the 500 package for £33 per month and love it.

The supplied router is OK but limited in Config so I'm using my own MikroTik hEX S and UBNT UniFi WiFi network.

I get around 360-410mbps on WiFi and 550mbps on Wired.

Never noticed any congestion. already on my street of around 40 homes at least 10 have signed up and installations only went live in May

Openreach must be worried about this. everyone i know who is in coverage will be switching as soon as their contracts are up
