You can get 12 or 24 month - optional. Fibre Max wasn't 450?

Are you telling me the max upload speed for gigabit fibre is only 90Mbps?

 

It say's on your website  that the upload will be between 400- 450Mbps...

FibreX Max - 90 up

 

Apologies - Fibre Max = download speeds of up to 700-900 Mbps, and upload speeds of up to 400-450 Mbps.

It doesn't say anything about speeds so I assume they Max speeds for what your line can handle?

 

 

 



Yes
  Are you serious? Max DL/UP for $84.99 a month fibre?

 



I was saying yes to Line as in copper line not Fibre

Linux

 

 

 

Oh... knew it was too good to be true!

 

 

 

So what are the speeds? there's no mention of speeds....

 

 

Speeds were all listed on the first page. 100Mbps fibre and 200Mbps  Fibre X

I am more confused with what is going on now than when we started this thread.
@Mikehales can you put a matrix together as it seems its all over the show.

 

 

 

  • Inconsistent contract lengths. Plan with all the extras 12 mths, Bare bones 24 mths, Why wouldn't I got with bigpipe who has no contract?

  • No differentiation with speeds and xDSL service types on the main page.

  • No Speed pricing on the website (Only after you put your address in.)

  • Bug: Website has now listed 1 less Naked BB plan (No more thrills plan for Naked) then re appears after you put in your address.

Well... speeds are as above and then plan details are online. Sorry about the speeds being post address. 

 

Apologies too re the 'mystery' plan - will raise a ticket to fix that view.

Home basic (wireless as I refuse to pay Chorus $2,600 to connect my copper line when They gonna tip it out for fibre in the next few years anyway) is 40Gb for $50... and Skinny have 40Gb for $40 100Gb for only $12 more... $2 more than VF 40Gb buys an extra 150% 🤷‍♂️

hio77: @MikeHales what is the chat experience like?
Is it real-time or simply posting on community?

How does this work in a no connectivity situation?

 

echoing this again, kinda an important thing to have clear that i don't think really is clear on vodafones site....

 

 

 

Genuine question as could differ in what happens with renewing my VF connection.

Well when things aren't clear it's cause it's a scam of some sort usually. I would sign up at your own risk.
