Why does the Ultimate Speed Guarantee use connection speed not download speed?

Connection speed and download speed are different:


Connection speed

Download speed

Other names

Access or sync speed

Throughput speed


Can only be controlled and managed by internet provider

Can be managed by users with support from internet provider

Measured in Ultimate Speed Guarantee





This difference means it’s very important when buying Vodafone Broadband to understand that our Ultimate Speed Guarantee covers the sync (or connection) speed, and not the download speed on your devices.

We use sync speed as it’s  largely within the control of Openreach

(the line provider) and ourselves to manage any faults and improvements that can be made to the network where you live.
