Vodafone FibreX is a cable broadband offering, exclusive to Vodafone that is available to customers in Wellington and Christchurch.

Vodafone have 4 main broadband plan offerings and offer 4 connection types - FibreX, Fibre, VDSL Broadband and ADSL Broadband. Some of the plans are very competitively priced in the current market, especially if you are a Vodafone Mobile customer. If you are happy to commit to a 12 or 24 month contract plan then you can get unlimited data broadband for $69.99 with the Vodafone Smart Connect plan for Vodafone On Account customers... that is one of the most competive prices in the market at time of writing. With the 3 months free at the start this will work out to $61.24 a month over the course of the two year contract. Great value in anyone's book. Look at Ultimate Home if you value the add ons like NEON (one of our favourite streaming offerings actually!) but as always compare the features and benefits of different plans and read the terms but there really are lots of reasons to consider Vodafone when you are looking for your next broadband plan.
