Vodafone UK has made its retail fibre offering available to new customers as it revealed that the new service is availbale to 22 million premises.

From today (Monday), non-Vodafone customers across the country will be able to sign up for Vodafone Connect, which also includes a fixed-line telephony service.

Vodafone launched its fixed-line service in a few select areas in June, before extending the rollout over the course of the summer.

The service is available in Ultrafast (up to 76 Mbps), Superfast (up to 38 Mbps) and Broadband ADSL (up to 17 Mbps) packages.

As an added incentive, Vodafone is throwing in a 12-month Netflix subscription and is offering an “easy switch” service, in which the operator will handle the switchover of new customers from their existing provider.

A router and mobile companion app are also included.

However, the operator did not provide an update on plans to launch a TV service.

Cindy Rose, Consumer Director at Vodafone UK said: "We are delighted that we are now able to bring our innovative new home broadband service to people across the UK, allowing them to share in the great experience many of our existing customers are already enjoying.

“Our customers are loving the fact that they can control their home broadband from their smartphones and tablets.

“With the introduction of Vodafone home broadband combined with our ultrafast 4G, Vodafone is now well positioned to satisfy all of our customers' connectivity needs, both at home and on the go.”
