I PMed Mike to assist me with my issues, but he was away at the time, and said he would get back to me. I contacted him again a week or so later for an update, and am yet to hear a reply to this second email.

I was wondering if you might be able to explain why you think the Fibre connection itself is not good, too?

Hi Splammle,

 Sorry to hear that - I'll have a word with Mike & see where it's at.

I don't think I said that I thought the fibre connection itself was bad, neither do I think it is bad. I do however have some minor issues with the service in general, i.e: Vodafone TV / MySki, phone line buzzing etc.

Splammle:

No.

As of the experiences of others I have seen with fibre, it isn't too bad of an investment. I wouldn't base your choice off of my experiences, as I believe that the crash between my sign up time and the introduction of Vodafone fibre mean I just had issues bound to pop up. However, with that said, Vodafone seemed to have ironed out most of the kinks in the service as of now, so if you can get fibre, I'd say go for it!

Neato. Just wanted to clear up whether it was actually *good* or not. To be honest, I've come to just expect pain from ISPs, so I try not to worry about that much. Thanks!

We switched from Telecom fibre to Vodafone fibre about 3 months ago. Telecom fibre was great and Vodafone fibre is even better. But I agree that Vodafone's billing system and call centres are awful.
