Vodafone, the broadband provider with the largest full fibre footprint in the UK, available to over 12 million homes, has announced plans to launch its fastest ever full fibre speeds in early 2024, bringing customers speeds up to 2.2Gbps throughout the home with Vodafone Pro II Broadband.
These new speed tiers will initially be available on CityFibre’s network, offering speeds that are 38% faster than EE’s 1.6Gbps service.
The new tiers follow Vodafone and CityFibre’s successful testing in York earlier this year, which saw Vodafone achieve its fastest ever speed throughout the home at the time, with a 2Gbps residential trial using Vodafone Pro II Broadband and the Vodafone Ultra Hub and Super WiFi 6E Booster.
The launch of a 2.2Gbps service means customers will be able to download their favourite games, like Call of Duty, in roughly 3 minutes* – over 50% faster than Vodafone’s 910Mbps broadband. For customers who want to quickly download their favourite TV show before they leave the house, they will be able to do this in roughly less than 12 seconds, providing them with unparalleled speeds and a new standard in Full Fibre broadband.
Vodafone Pro II Broadband was built with these speeds in mind. The new 2.2Gbps service will be 60x faster than standard broadband, demonstrating the value of Full Fibre in delivering mind-blowing speeds for consumers. These new speed tiers highlight Vodafone’s continued commitment to delivering reliable speeds and providing the best WiFi technology to customers.
