How does Super Wi-Fi work?
Super Wi-Fi provides high-speed wireless coverage throughout the home using innovative mesh technology. Super Wi-Fi extenders connect to your Vodafone Gigabox modem to create a unified Wi-Fi network throughout the house, delivering fast internet and streamed video to every corner of your home.
Each Super Wi-Fi extender is a powerful dual-band concurrent Wi-Fi access point. Built into the device, Super Wi-Fi client steering technology monitors the connection of your mobile devices as they move around your home and steers them to connect to the best Access Point and most suitable Wi-Fi band depending on where you are in your home.

How much time will it take for the Super Wi-Fi installation?
The Super Wi-Fi installation takes place with the support of our skilled engineers who will minimise the impact on your day.
The duration of the installation will depend on how many extenders you need, whether your extenders can be connected to the modem wirelessly or if they need to be wired to the modem, and the Wi-Fi environment.
What happens during the Super WiFi installation?
The engineer will consult with you to understand your current in-home Wi-Fi environment, such as whether there are any known Wi-Fi issues or black spots within the home. The engineer will then run tests using our Wi-Fi analyser tool to determine where the Super Wi-Fi extender(s) should be installed to give you optimal coverage.
Once you are happy with the proposed extender location, the engineer will proceed to install the Super Wi-Fi extender(s) and run Wi-Fi tests again to demonstrate the improvement in Wi-Fi coverage in your home.
Will the engineer need to run wires throughout my home for Super Wi-Fi?
Does the bill payer need to be present for the Super Wi-Fi installation?
A person over the age of 18 must be present during the installation, though this does not need to be the bill payer.
Please note, however, that Super Wi-Fi comes with an expert install, catered to your home’s specific Wi-Fi needs. As part of this service, our engineer will consult with you to try to understand your current in-home Wi-Fi environment, and work with you to determine where the extender(s) should be installed to give you optimal coverage.
For this reason, we recommend that the person present during the installation can talk to your current in-home Wi-Fi experience and coverage requirements, such as any existing coverage black spots, any areas/rooms in the home where improved coverage is required etc.
Ordering Additional Extenders
Cancellation & Equipment Returns
How can I return my Super Wi-Fi extenders when I no longer need them?
Once you have cancelled a Super Wi-Fi subscription, a Vodafone agent will call you to organise for the Vodafone equipment to be collected by a courier. Once the appointment is confirmed, a courier will call to your home or work to collect the equipment.
An agent will try to contact you two or three times to arrange this appointment. If these attempts are unsuccessful, you will get a text message informing you of the equipment recovery attempt and advising you to call to make an appointment for collection. If you don’t arrange another collection you will be charged for the unreturned equipment.
Help & Troubleshooting
I have a Super Wi-Fi extender, but I’m still having Wi-Fi coverage issues.
Vodafone Super Wi-Fi comes with a custom installation by an engineer. The engineer will advise on where the extender(s) should be installed in order to provide optimal Wi-Fi coverage. Please note that failure to follow the engineer’s recommendation on modem/extender placement may impact the performance of Super Wi-Fi.
If you currently have a Super Wi-Fi extender but are still experiencing Wi-Fi coverage issues, please call 1907. Our Wi-Fi experts have real-time visibility into your in-home Wi-Fi environment, enabling prompt identification and resolution of your Wi-Fi issues.
Due to the size of your home, layout or physical obstructions, it is possible that more than one Super Wi-Fi extender may be required to cover every corner of your home. Our Wi-Fi experts will be able to identify if this is the case and may recommend a further extender to provide enhanced coverage.
