Vodafone’s Gigabit Broadband Starts Rolling Out to the UK

For most of the UK, ultrafast internet is still but a pipe dream. Lots of areas aren't wired up for Virgin Media's highest speed broadband - currently 350Mb - and less than stellar standard broadband infrastructure means that even major cities can't reach anywhere near the average speed of 46.2Mb.

Vodafone is Bringing ZTE’s Dual-Screen Axon M Phone to the UK

Last year ZTE released a very strange phone called the Axon M. It's a folding dual-screen device that seems like a concept device that went too far. Earlier this year was MWC, where ZTE confirmed that the phone would be arriving in Europe sometime this year, and now Vodafone has confirmed that it will be offering the Axon M right here in the UK.

Vodafone Caps Pay As You Go Charges, So You Don’t Pay More Than £1 a Day

I don't really know anyone who's on Pay As You Go these days. With the ubiquity of mobile data, and the charges I've seen associated with off-contract data, PAYG doesn't seem like a particularly good idea. At least it's not for the way I use my phone, and there are plenty of people who feel differently. Vodafone might have ditched the slogan 'Power To You', but its latest announcement seems quite in line with that. Read More >>

Vodafone Passes Are a Dystopian Glimpse of a World Without Net Neutrality

The past few years there have been huge, huge arguments about the concept of net neutrality.
