Vodafone has unveiled today a series of new broadband packages that ‘guarantees Wi-Fi in every room’, with prices starting from a competitive £35 per month. The packages come in response to the demand for home-working and internet during the pandemic.
The Pro Broadband packages use a combination of fast download speeds, a hybrid router which automatically connects to Vodafone 4G via a dongle (plugged into the router) if the Wi-Fi goes down and Wi-Fi boosters for rooms with black spots. Customers will also have contact with Vodafone Wi-Fi Xperts for any technical issues.
If customers are not satisfied with the performance of the boosters, then they will be allowed to walk away from the contract with no fees to pay. You can take a look at all the plans and pricing over on the Vodafone website.
The cost of the packages will depend on the speed of the broadband that the customer chooses. The cheapest package (£35 per month) guarantees speeds of 35Mbps. Meanwhile, the fastest speed of 900Mbps costs £60 per month.
Vodafone already offers these speeds on its Gigafast Fibre plans, but these options don’t feature the boosters and dongles that the Pro Broadband plans do.

In addition, Vodafone is offering a Faster Fibre Promise, meaning that customers will be upgraded for free to full fibre to the premise (FTTP) broadband as soon as it rolls out in a customer’s street.
Signing up to the Pro Broadband packages also features extra benefits, including Norton anti-virus protection and parental controls free for the first 12 months, discounts for pay monthly Vodafone mobile customers and the choice to upgrade their broadband plans to Pro Xtra for £8 per month, which gives customers a 4K Apple TV, unlimited calls and no-contract price rises.
EE introduced a similar type of add-on plan with boosters back in 2020. If you’d like to know about other ways to improve your Wi-Fi, you can take a look at our guide on how to boost your signal at home.
