Vodafone, the broadband provider with the largest full-fibre footprint in the UK, has reached another milestone by achieving its fastest ever speed throughout the home, with a 2Gbps residential trial using Vodafone Pro II Broadband and the new Vodafone Ultra Hub and Super WiFi 6E Booster.

The trial with CityFibre was made possible by Vodafone’s market-leading Pro II Broadband with the UK’s fastest router and CityFibre’s recent upgrade of its York network to XGS-PON access technology. This is due to be rolled out as standard across its network from April 2023.


This successful trial saw speeds of up to 2Gbps, twice the speed of the fastest services widely available on CityFibre’s network today. This means that, in the future, customers will be able to download their favourite games, such as Call of Duty, onto a console in roughly three minutes and 20 seconds – more than 50% faster than Vodafone’s 910Mbps broadband. For customers who want to download their favourite TV show quickly before they leave the house, they will be able to do this in roughly 15 seconds, providing them with unparalleled speeds and a new standard in Full Fibre broadband.

What is WiFi 6E? WiFi router differences explained
There are various versions of WiFi – which one your router and devices have will determine the speed and range of your wireless internet connection. We explain what they are and how to find out which ones you have.
Vodafone Pro II Broadband has been built to handle speeds like these. A 2Gbps service would be 40x faster than standard broadband, demonstrating the value of Full Fibre in delivering mind-blowing speeds for consumers. The trial and partnership with CityFibre highlights Vodafone’s continued commitment to delivering reliable speeds and providing the best WIFi technology to customers.

Max Taylor, Vodafone’s UK Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We’re the biggest Full Fibre provider in the UK and recording our fastest ever home WiFi speed showcases the true capability of the technology and our Pro II Broadband.

“With the UK’s fastest router, we’re all set to handle the next exciting developments, so our customers always get the fastest broadband speeds possible in all corners of their home at a great price.”
