A newish Vodafone UFB connection in Forrest Hill area of Auckland performs at 30M down and 10M up. The router is a Huawei HG659.

Is this acceptable? If not, what is the best strategy for getting an improvement? Many hours have already been spent talking to Vodafone, and they have replaced the router .. no change.

30/10  is the correct speed for an entry level UFB plan.  If you signed up for the 30/10 plan, then you are getting exactly what you asked for.

Assuming for a moment that's not the plan you wanted,  then it sounds like you have been provisioned on the wrong plan.

What speed plan did you request? If 30/10 then this is the speed you should be getting if you ordered a faster plan then as above sounds like you are on the incorrect profile

Are you testing over WiFi or LAN cable plugged direct into modem?

Serious question, what were you doing on the net that was slow & caused all the investigation?

I've used 30/10 UFB and it feels miles faster than full speed ADSL2+, mainly in latency.

Many people say they feel like they are on dial-up but they have never used dial-up

There were instability issues and the "slow" speed - per speedtest.net testing - was assumed to be part of the problem. I am sure you are right - the 30/10 throughput is just fine, provided you know that is what you are meant to be getting.

Then move to dail-up and see what it's really like, This is off topic and not related to UFB You are best to keep this in the single thread that you started few weeks back

The OP is on a 30/10 plan and this is the speed they are getting
