Home Broadband Usage
How do I track my speeds?
You can track the speed at which your broadband loads webpages and downloads files using the Vodafone speed checker. They measure your throughput speed, rather than your maximum speed, which is usually reduced in the afternoons and evenings (between 5 and 10 pm) when congestion is heaviest.
Your speed is determined by many things:
- The speed of your phone line
- The speed of your computer
- Congestion in the telephone network
- Congestion on the Internet
- The speed of website servers
Your broadband will always try to connect at the highest possible speed available on your telephone line, which is why we refer to our broadband services as 'Up to' a certain speed.
Is Vodafone broadband compatible with my Playstation, Xbox or Wii?
Yes! You can use Vodafone at Home broadband with your Xbox (360 and One), Playstation (2, 3 or 4) and Wii consoles.
How to get started
When you sign up to Vodafone at Home, a setup guide will be mailed out to you. In it, you’ll find instructions on how to set up your modem. Once you’re set up, just plug your gaming unit into the modem with a standard ethernet cable, and you’ll be ready to play.
The latest games consoles have WiFi built-in so you could use a wireless connection if an ethernet cable is not practical to use due to the position of your Vodafone modem. An ethernet cable connection offers the fastest and most reliable Internet connection compared to wireless.
