Working from home for the foreseeable future? End bandwidth battles with Vodafone Work and Play

Working from home for the foreseeable future? End bandwidth battles with Vodafone Work and Play
  • Vodafone now offers a second broadband line giving customers dedicated broadband for home working and dedicated broadband for browsing, streaming, gaming and any other needs.
  • Prices for a second line start from as little as £21 per month on Vodafone’s Superfast broadband for existing mobile customers as part of Vodafone Together.
  • Customers can save over £700 in comparison to BT’s second line service.

 Following announcements from leading UK organisations that working from home will become the norm for many employees, Vodafone has launched ‘Work and Play’. The new service gives anyone the opportunity to purchase a second broadband line dedicated entirely to home working, including customers new to Vodafone. This frees up people’s existing broadband to serve everything else our busy lives demand, making family bandwidth battles a thing of the past.

Vodafone ‘Work and Play’ provides the reassurance that the rest of the household can stream and game as much as they like without impacting video conference calls or that time-critical work download. Customers purchasing a second line receive Vodafone’s most reliable WiFi Hub and all the smart features of our Vodafone Broadband App to manage their connection.

For existing pay monthly mobile customers, prices start from as little as £21 per month on Vodafone’s 35Mbps Superfast Broadband with Vodafone Together. For new customers without a mobile plan, prices start at £23 per month for 35Mbps Superfast Broadband, and £25 per month for 67Mbps Superfast Broadband, giving a huge saving of over £700 in comparison to a similar service currently offered by BT.

Those looking to take advantage of a second broadband line from Vodafone can do so by calling customer services on 0333 3040 191.
