Came across something interesting where I put my address into the 'Want to know what broadband you can get?' tool it comes up fibre offerings which is great but I also have a Vodafone HFC connection going into my property as well. So the question is, does Vodafone see that I am already on fibre and simply transfer me from that ISP to Vodafone (thus I keep using fibre) or will Vodafone hook me up with FibreX instead? I ask this because is it possible to manage the whole account (mobile and broadband since I'd be moving both across) from a single point if they stick with my existing fibre connection? do new FibreX connections get setup differently and thus able to be managed under the same place where mobile is managed too?


Thanks in advance

The mobile login is for mobile connections only on the main site in the Vodafone mobile App you can add fixed line connections as well

My question is around the FibreX offering from Vodafone. We will be moving to the parade Island bay so I need to know how fibreX performs there? Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
