Why choose Vodafone 5G home broadband?
Vodafone was the second UK network to launch a 5G service and it has been expanding quickly since then, meaning that there’s a good chance you’ll be able to get Vodafone 5G home broadband now or soon.
As for why you should, well, Vodafone gives you loads of broadband choices – it has plans with unlimited data, which you’ll likely want, but if you can get by with a data limit then that’s an option too, one which will save you some money.
Vodafone also lets you choose between a 30-day or 18-month contract for its 5G home broadband plans, so you have the choice between immense flexibility on a 30-day plan, or a lower monthly price on an 18-month one.
Vodafone will also supply you with a 5G GigaCube router, which can connect up to 64 devices to the internet at once. That’s far more than almost anyone is likely to need.
What are the advantages of 5G home broadband?
If you’re considering 5G home broadband instead of conventional fixed line broadband then there are a large number of advantages and potential advantages.
Firstly, 5G home broadband is very quick and easy to set up – as it doesn’t require wires to get the signal into your home you basically just plug the router in, meaning you can potentially have internet within a day or two of ordering it, as all you have to do is wait for the router to be delivered – no engineer is needed.
Given that it’s also available on short-term plans this makes 5G home broadband a good short-term option, which you might want if for example you only need internet in a place for a few months or less, or just want something while you wait for fixed line broadband to be installed.
5G home broadband can be a great long-term alternative to fixed line broadband too though, as its speeds can potentially rival or even exceed fixed line internet (particularly if you’re somewhere that can’t get fast fibre).
5G home broadband is also often cheaper, as it doesn’t require a landline – so if you’re happy using your smartphone for calls then you can get rid of your landline and save yourself lots of monthly money.
Of course, 5G home broadband is also a far speedier alternative to 4G home broadband.

Vodafone 5G speeds
Vodafone’s 5G GigaCube can reach speeds of up to 1Gbps. Though the network notes that speeds will vary based on coverage, the layout of your home, how many devices are connected, and other factors.
It hasn’t outlined an average speed, but it’s likely to be similar to the speeds offered on Vodafone 5G SIM Only or with a 5G phone, which the company claims average around 150-200Mbps. That’s still faster than all but the very speediest fibre broadband connections.
