lokhor:  ... I checked and I have not been switched. Should I ring and ask? it is cheaper which is weird


Check your Internet Usage Meter.
Does it look different?
If the meter no longer tells you how much data you have left (but only tells you how much you have used), then you have been switched to unlimited.

Ah the plan name hadn't changed but it no longer tells me how much data I have left.

VodafoneDylan: Hi all

Our unlimited broadband plans are here. Available as Naked VDSL, VDSL with phone, Naked ADSL and ADSL with phone, and of course naked fibre, fibre with phone, and naked cable and cable with phone. Lots of options.

Enjoy! :)

Dylan



Hi Dylan,

Read the comments below but still wanted to confirm again: Last month I had upgraded naked ADSL Broadband to 500 GB one. Can you please confirm again that it is automatically upgraded to Unlimited ?

Thanks,
Sam

It would be yes. 500gb for ADSL and VDSL is non existent.

I'm really glad that unlimited plans have been rolled out, and just on time too! It always boggled me that Vodafone didn't have any unlimited plans available even at the highest tiers. Prior to this, I was planning to have a 130/10 Mbps plan with a 500 GB plan installed for personal use, but since the plans are now unlimited, the landlord is having it installed for the entire flat and footing the bill. This is a tremendous upgrade over the 16/0.75 Mbps ADSL connection that's currently coming in through Slingshot.

The install is slated to take place on Saturday. I'm excited! I've supported this network for the last few months, and this extra bandwidth is going to save a lot of headache.

Kodiack: .. the landlord is having it installed for the entire flat and footing the bill.  


Raises an interesting question - is a landlord providing the service to tenants counted as residential or commercial?

That would be commercial if he collected a fee for the use of the service. Even then, he is using it for commercial purposes. That would be against our terms and conditions. Make sure you acquaint him of that.
Are you saying he will just setup a WiFi AP and everyone has free reign? Or you saying he is giving the go ahead for the cable to be put to individual flats?

I would say residential when the other option is to force every tenant to purchase their own private Internet connection. The cost is ultimately split up amongst the tenants through payments (at the end of the day, we're paying for the connection). He's not selling the bandwidth or using the connection as if he were an ISP. If he stood to profit from this, however, then things would be a bit uglier for everyone involved.

*EDIT: Just realized that I worded my original post poorly, hence the confusion. :D Basically, it's a residential connection where the costs are split evenly among its users but with one central payment to Vodafone.

Does anyone have any experience of how long it took for installers to come out from the day the service was ordered?


Thanks.

Hamilton - 8 Days. Got update emails when status changed on the order, and the installer called about 20 minutes before arriving exactly as scheduled.  Very well organised IME.

Took the plunge and requested change from 150GB 130/10 to unlimited. No need to install as it is an existing connection. Let's see how it goes.

Did you manage to avoid a contract as well, Mauricio?

Yes, as I didn't have an existing one, modem is already installed, router is my own.
