How is Vodafone broadband installed?

How Vodafone Broadband is installed depends on the speeds and plan you get. Check broadband speeds for your area 

Installation can take up to four hours – our engineers will test your service to make sure you’re connected. Someone over the age of 18 must be at home for the installation. 

Make sure you have permission 

It’s important to get permission before an installation, for example, if you have a shared driveway or your building is rented or listed. You’ll need to sign a wayleave agreement to confirm you have permission.

On the day of installation our engineers will run a cable from a nearby street cabinet to your home.

In some cases, they’ll need to dig a route through your garden or driveway to install a fibre wire – they’ll always talk to you before this happens.
