just switched to @vodafone #fibre #broadband which has lots of options

you might want to enable split SSID and save energy / power by turning off / down all the LEDs AND if you have turned off all the LEDs there is a proximity sensor that turns them back on when you hand is within 2 inches of the router

Im currently getting 30M down and 8M up for £21/month

why is @poptelecom losing #fibre #broadband customers to @vodafone ? because @vodafone charge £22 and @poptelecom charge £29 #mktg #fail

why is @poptelecom losing fibre broadband customers to @vodafone ? because @vodafone charge £22 and @poptelecom charge £29 for EXISTING customers to upgrade and £21 to NEW customers ONLY #mktg #fail

so thats £70 / year more than vodafone and when poptelecom cancellation fee is £75 you’ll only lose £5 in the first year and save £70 every other year

its a no brainer

except that the vodafone website has MAJOR bugs and doesnt let you signup so you have to call 080 8003 4511 instead

The useless vodafone website continuously says

The dates you have entered for moving in overlap. 
Please check these dates before continuing

 

post office broadband @pobroadband customer service falls short #fail

post office broadband (postoffice.co.uk) customer service falls short #fail

their website is down (they blame @btopenreach)

 

pobroadband

their 404 page doesnt even mention the pobroadband helpline number which is 034 5600 3210 (in case you want to cancel your account too)

their customer service systems are down (they blame @btopenreach) so they cant cancel your account until monday “can you please phone us back on monday”

they have a severe short term memory loss problems

48hrs ago they sent a letter saying there were no cancellation fees(due to price increases)

they just said you have to pay 2 months rental if you cancel !
