If you have any issues it is almost impossible to get resolution unless you can eventually speak to the NZ based call centre (after being transferred through 3-4 other offices). This might take you 45 mins plus each time. Once you are through to the NZ call centre, sometimes they say they will correct things but it is not done. We have finally struck someone in the NZ office who has been a great help and sorted our issues. There seem to be a lot of lovely helpful people at Vodafone but the IT systems do not seem to 'speak" to each other and transfer information and therefore no record of previous calls or arrangements made. We have had to contact Vodafone NZ CEO and use the Telecomunications Disputes resolution service prior to leaving. ...read more
Pros
Broadband is generally reliable.
Cons
The stress and time of dealing with ongoing account issues was not worth it for us and ultimately drove us away from using this company. Nor would we ever use it again.

When we signed up, Vodaphone was great. Prompt, reliable and responsive. Call centre was based in Auckland and any questions and minor glitches we had upon activation of our VDSL were rectified promptly. Tried to upgrade to the newly installed fibre in our neighbourhood recently and it was the WORST customer service experience I have ever had. Firstly, my original order for the upgrade was never processed. When trying to check on the status of the upgrade, I discovered the call centre was now based off-shore. I was told (through a thick almost indecipherable accent), that the plan I was seeking did not exist and they tried to up-sell me to a more expensive plan, despite the plan being right in front of me on my browser. I sent them a screen grab via email and even then he doubted me and ask that I refresh my browser window. This by the way was after being bounced around between operators and being placed on hold for nearly an hour and a half. Finally when I thought I may as well just proceed and get things rolling, my service rep asked for my Driver's licence ID. I steadfastly refused as this was never necessary in the past. I had always been identified via my billing details. At this point I was fed up, told them I was seeking another provider and asked that they not call me back again. Five minutes later he calls back saying he doesn't need my drivers license because he was able to access my passport number from my account file! He could now sign me up. Why on earth was a call centre operator accessing my passport details (presumably used as ID when I originally signed up). I am outraged and have now left Vodafone and signed up to a new provider. ...read more
Pros
Consistent reliable VDSL speed approaching 100mbs. Once up and running, pretty much hassle free.
Cons
Impenetrable customer service. Call centre has moved off shore and help is incompetent and rude. Often times they would not listen and just assumed I had said something that I had not, like they are reading from a script most of the time.

They push you to roll over the contract, promising cheaper rates, but do not tell you that all quoted prices are GST exclusive - so are misleading. The Vodafone router can not do basic Multicast protocol. This is a major issue and prevents many standard local area networked products from working. Also the 5GHz band Wifi just stops working - even though it reports it is connected - very frustrating!!
Pros
no pros at all
Cons
They have useless service, very hard to get anyone to help, long wait ques, and poor or misleading communication.

Overall I've found Vodafone to be pretty reliable and good value for money. Their package deal with sky TV is also at a great rate.
Pros
Good value package deal, very fair to deal with.
Cons
Wait times on the phone when any issues
