What is Vodafone mobile broadband?

Vodafone mobile broadband is a broadband service that connects your wireless devices to the internet through 4G and 5G networks, giving you the freedom to work, game, stream, and download on your device wherever there is a signal. Additionally, it is a great alternative to home broadband.

Connect your devices to Vodafone's 4G network using an overly portable data dongle (a small gadget that uses the Vodafone network to connect your laptop or PC to the internet) and access the internet virtually anywhere in the UK, as it covers 99% of the UK. You may use the 5G GigaCube to connect many devices to Vodafone's lightning-fast 5G network for even more speed and versatility.

How to set up your Vodafone mobile broadband

Set up your Vodafone WiFi hub before you set up any other mobile broadband device. Follow this step-by-step guide on how you to set up your Vodafone WiFi hub:

  • You are to set up your Vodafone WiFi Hub only on your broadband activation date. Connecting before the due date may cause service troubles. Check your activation date online or in the email with your broadband order confirmation.
  • Put your new WiFi Hub next to your master phone socket and a mains power socket.
  • Connect the internet cable to the WiFi Hub's red internet connector on the rear. Plug the opposite end of the cable firmly into the microfilter, then into the phone socket on the wall.
  • Plug the supplied power cord into your WiFi Hub and the other end into a power outlet.
  • Turn on the power at the wall socket and turn on your WiFi Hub by pressing the on/off button on the back.
  • If the power light on your WiFi Hub is constant white, it's working well and is currently turned on. On your activation day, keep your WiFi Hub turned on and connected. Your WiFi Hub may take till midnight on your activation day to connect and become active.
  • Once you have activated your connection and turned on your WiFi Hub for the first time, it will set itself up and install any available updates, you may notice the lights on your WiFi Hub changing throughout this process, and you may lose connectivity a few times.
  • If your activation date has passed and you still don't see a constant white light above the Internet and WiFi after following the instructions above, please visit Vodafone's Broadband Support hub for assistance.
