Just threw in my address into the package configurator and I had the option of 30, 100 or 200Mbps - has the cable network been upgraded or are Vodafone offering UFB to those in cable areas?

Just checked my address and the best it will offer is Cable at 50 mbit or 100mbit and it won't offer UFB. The speeds you are seeing are not cable speeds so maybe you aren't actually in a cable area?

I've heard Vodafone will do this week a lot of work on their cable network, which could possibly include new speed options available.

 

Obviousy if it works or not is another story.

That's determined your address is NOT in a cable area and is presenting you with copper and UFB options and Sky as an option for TV.

 

A cable zone address has the copper options ghosted out and max speed is 100Mbps.

Without reading the letter I got from them they can offer me 3x faster broadband. So, I am assuming they can offer me 600Mbit ;)

Actually I am in a cable area....because there is a Saturn box and cable coming into the house from the previous owner not to mention the cable going from power pole to power pole.

You might be in a cable area but the results presented to you above are for a non cable area.
