Vodafone offers unbeatable full fibre broadband in Rotherham and Gloucester with speeds of over 900Mbps, from just £30 a month

Vodafone’s fastest full fibre 900Mbps broadband package is now not only available in Rotherham and Gloucester, it's on sale at half price – from £60 a month to just £30 a month.

Broadband just got better for homes and businesses in Rotherham and Gloucester, thanks to the arrival of full fibre broadband from Vodafone. Both locations are among the first of 20 new places getting access to the service.

Vodafone’s fastest full fibre 900Mbps broadband package is now available in Rotherham and Gloucester. To celebrate, Vodafone is currently offering the service at half price – from £60 to just £30.

The deal celebrates Vodafone becoming Britain’s newest full fibre broadband leader, with the ambition to reach more than eight million homes with full fibre by spring 2022 following a new deal signed with CityFibre in November 2021. The offer is available to homes reached by the CityFibre network and if Vodafone full fibre broadband isn’t currently available, customers can still buy Vodafone Pro broadband and receive a free upgrade to full fibre when it reaches their area.

Max Taylor, Consumer Director at Vodafone UK, said; “Consumers need competition in the broadband space, and we’re committed to delivering that. For residents in Rotherham and Gloucester, we’re making the fastest broadband, with a premium package of features and benefits, even more accessible than ever with this great new offer.”

Residents and businesses in Rotherham and Gloucester can find out more online and can also register their interest.

Notes to editors

  • *By April 2022, Vodafone will become Britain’s biggest full fibre provider thanks to investing in partnerships with both Openreach and CityFibre.
  • Offer is available to customers in full fibre areas and subject to a credit check, acceptance and availability. Minimum term agreement applies. Full terms and conditions apply.
  • Customers who pair Vodafone Pro Broadband with an EVO mobile plan will be able to take advantage of a ‘Vodafone Together’ discount of £3 a month. Vodafone Together customers will also be helping to tackle digital poverty in the UK. For every new and existing Vodafone Together customer, we will provide a person in need with a SIM card loaded with 20GB of data plus free calls and texts each month for up to a year. The ‘Buy One, Give One’ initiative ensures that connectivity reaches those who need it most. The SIMs will be distributed through the Trussell Trust’s UK network of food bank centres. Vodafone has committed to connecting one million people who are living in digital poverty by the end of 2022.
