Help with Smart Connect broadband

Set up your Ultra Hub

Ultra hub

With your Vodafone Smart Connect service, you can use the Vodafone Ultra Hub modem on ADSL, VDSL, FibreX and Fibre connections.

For ADSL and VDSL, and Fibre X or Fibre houses with an existing Fibre Optical Network Terminal (ONT), it’s easy to install the Ultra Hub yourself in just a few minutes. 

If you have FibreX or Fibre, and your house doesn’t have an ONT , a technician will be booked to install your broadband connection. They will also set up your Ultra Hub in this visit.

Your Ultra Hub package will be delivered to you and includes:

  • Vodafone Ultra Hub modem
  • Power supply
  • x2 LAN cables
  • x2 DSL cables
  • x1 DSL Line Filter

Got all of the above? Great! You’re ready to plug in the modem and get connected.
