I'm currently a Vodafone customer interested in moving to fibre at some point soon, however I was wondering whether Vodafone's address checker was being misleading or maybe I'm not understanding things correctly?

Vodafone's address checker says fibre is not available at my house. Spark's address checker says fibre is available.

Vodafone's address checker said I wasn't able to get VDSL, however when I rang them up last year they said it was available and I got moved to VDSL last year. I'm wondering if this might be the case for fibre as well and maybe the VF address checker just hasn't been updated?

The Chorus network capability map tells me I can get 'UFB fibre up to 200 Mbps' at my address so that's a good indication of things right?

Select your town on this map and see whether Vodafone is listed. If so, then it should work.

Yeah that's a good indication you can probably get it (providing it says not planned of course). May want to post in the Vodafone forum about this instead but afaik they were trying to get people on cable rather than UFB in some regions?

If you want to, PM me your address and I can double check what you can/can't get :)

Thanks guys, looks promising. And yes, on the network capability map my house is definitely in the shade of blue that would indicate it is 'available'.
