Vodafone launches fibre broadband and SIM-only bundles
Vodafone has started offering bundled home broadband and SIM deals – and says you can save hundreds of pounds by switching from BT, Virgin Media or Sky.
Vodafone’s new bundles combine its Superfast 1 fibre broadband package, which offers speeds up to 38Mbps and is underpinned by Vodafone’s Ultimate Speed Guarantee, with SIM-only plans ranging from 500MB to 40GB of data.
The guarantee means you’ll be able to claim a discount if your broadband speeds dip below 25Mbps.
To bundle fibre broadband in with a SIM offering 500MB of data and 500 minutes is £31 a month. For 8GB and unlimited minutes you’ll pay £36 a month. If you’re a particularly data hungry mobile user then you may want to go for one of Vodafone’s bigger bundles – £40 a month gets you a 20GB SIM and £46 gives you 40GB to play with.
Upgrading any of these bundles to include Superfast 2 home broadband – offering speeds up to 76Mbps – will cost you an extra fiver a month. And there’s a £9.99 upfront fee to pay no matter which bundle you choose.
Save up to £283
Vodafone says its £31 bundle will save you £116 over 18 months compared to BT Infinity 1, which offers speeds up to 52Mbps, and a 500MB SIM plan from BT Mobile, while Vodafone’s £36 bundle promises savings of £283 compared to Sky Fibre Unlimited and a 5GB SIM from Sky Mobile.
Nick Jeffery, Vodafone UK’s chief executive, said: “We’re already delivering guaranteed speeds on home broadband as well as great mobile connectivity on our strongest UK network, so naturally the next step was to bring the two together.
“We are delighted to launch these home broadband and mobile bundles, delivering great value and a service our customers can rely on.”
Vodafone’s bundles consist of an 18-month broadband contract and a 12-month SIM plan, but the company doesn’t say how much you’ll be paying for broadband if you decide to cancel the SIM part of your bundle after a year. We’ve asked Vodafone and will update this story as soon as we get a response.
What we do know is you can’t currently get these bundles online. In order to take advantage you’ll need call Vodafone on 191 from a Vodafone mobile or 03333 040 191 from a UK landline, or pop into your nearest Vodafone shop.
UPDATE: Vodafone has confirmed that customers cancelling the SIM-only part of a bundle after 12 months will pay £21 a month for Superfast 1 broadband for the remaining six months of their contract.
