We are currently with Vodafone for Fibre, our 12 month contract is up and I'm now looking at cheaper & faster fibre offerings from other providers. 

 

Can someone advise me if the Vodafone UltraHub and HG659 routers are locked to the Vodafone network? 

Or if I sign up with another provider (Stuff, My Republic etc) on a no contract / no modem deal, can I reuse the UltraHub or HG659 for the fibre connection?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Phill

Not locked, I'd disassociate the device in the my vodafone though.

 

 

 

There have been past situations of the modems calling back into vodafones network and loading the configurations from there.

Hi @getresults

 

No they are not network locked, but you might have to change the settings on them to make it work with your provider.
