Vodafone to launch its fastest ever Full Fibre speeds with the UK’s fastest WiFi technology as standard

The landmark speeds will unlock the true capability of Pro II Broadband, powered by the UK's first WiFi 6E Ultra Hub and Booster.

  • New full fibre speeds from Vodafone will launch in early 2024 will bring speeds up to 2.2Gbps. 
  • Landmark speeds will unlock the true capability of Pro II Broadband powered by the UK’s first WiFi 6E Ultra Hub and Booster. 
  • The new tiers come after Vodafone and CityFibre’s speed trials in York earlier in 2023, which demonstrated that customers could experience these new speeds around the home with their Pro II Broadband. 
  • Vodafone’s Full Fibre 2.2G will offer customers remarkable speeds that are 38% faster than EE’s 1.6Gbps service .

Vodafone, the broadband provider with the largest full fibre footprint in the UK, available to over 12 million homes, has today announced plans to launch its fastest ever full fibre speeds in early 2024, bringing customers speeds up to 2.2Gbps throughout the home with Vodafone Pro II Broadband. These new speed tiers will initially be available on CityFibre’s network, offering speeds that are 38% faster than EE’s 1.6Gbps service.

The new tiers follow Vodafone and CityFibre’s successful testing in York earlier this year, which saw Vodafone achieve its fastest ever speed throughout the home at the time, with a 2Gbps residential trial using Vodafone Pro II Broadband and the Vodafone Ultra Hub and Super WiFi 6E Booster.

Full Fibre broadband: Everything you need to know

Full fibre broadband is in the news a lot, but there are crucial differences between the types you can get. We explain what those are and why it matters.

The launch of a 2.2Gbps service means customers will be able to download their favourite games, like Call of Duty, in roughly 3 minutes* – over 50% faster than Vodafone’s 910Mbps broadband. For customers who want to quickly download their favourite TV show before they leave the house, they will be able to do this in roughly less than 12 seconds**, providing them with unparalleled speeds and a new standard in Full Fibre broadband.

Vodafone Pro II Broadband was built with these speeds in mind. The new 2.2Gbps service will be 60x faster than standard broadband***, demonstrating the value of Full Fibre in delivering mind-blowing speeds for consumers. These new speed tiers highlight Vodafone’s continued commitment to delivering reliable speeds and providing the best WiFi technology to customers.

What is WiFi 6E? WiFi router differences explained

There are various versions of WiFi – which one your router and devices have will determine the speed and range of your wireless internet connection. We explain what they are and how to find out which ones you have.

Max Taylor, Chief Commercial Officer Vodafone UK, said: “We’re the biggest Full Fibre provider in the UK and these new 2.2Gbps speeds are going to be a game changer in 2024. Being able to provide our customers with these phenomenal speeds showcases the true capability of our Pro II Broadband. With the UK’s fastest router, customers will be able to get the fastest broadband speeds, in all corners of the home, and at an amazing price.”

Customers looking to purchase Vodafone Pro II Broadband can do so by calling 191 from their Vodafone mobile, visiting one of our retail stores or going online.
