    Default Re: new fibre install = better cellphone?

    Is it possible that she is now getting VoLTE calls on her cellphone? Voda claims they are clearer in quality. I haven't found that to be the case, but that is what is claimed on Voda's and Spark's websites.

    She's with 2degrees, and in any case, that still implies that the change absolutely coincided with the activation of he fibre - I suspect not.

    However who knows, I met someone this week who was convinced that fibre was 5G
    I have had to tell her several times that using the 5ghz band on her wifi is not "5G".
    And she is adamant that it is her cell phone call quality that has improved.

    Vodafone has been improving their cell network because they want to force you onto 4g broadband and not fibre.

    They are after the lions share, so before you even discover you have fibre they are forcing people to 4g and taking you off ADSL/VDSL.

    By the sounds of it, the way they word the email gives you no other option. I am hoping someone has the email and could post it.

    i'm in the middle of it at the mo.
    there is no choice. they have closed the old account, issued a new account. already got the first bill.
    i had a winge at them the other day because they had a fault and i lost all comms. not to sure if their cellular problem also effected adsl network or they just happen to disable my adsl at the same time.
    but adsl back on and have been on that until i can get 4g setup. i've had to drag out my old networking switch.
    Tweak it till it breaks

    There is a choice, go to another ISP . Dont reward bad behavior .
    If you can get fibre , go with fibre over 4G every time.

    Voda have even been putting some poeple on 4G even when that was slower than the VDSL they had .

    yeah i think i will go fibre. i really do not like having everything running over just one network.
    however for me, 4g is about the same speed and its cheaper.
