Using your home phone

  • If power is not available then broadband, and any services which run over it including calling from your home phone (and calls to emergency services), may stop working unless there is battery backup at your place.
  • Once your broadband is connected you’ll need to plug your home phone directly into your Vodafone supplied modem instead of the wall phone jack. Non-Vodafone modems will not work.
  • Making phone calls – you’ll now need to dial the area code before dialling the phone number, eg 09, 07, 03 etc. There may be a delay of up to 10 secs before it starts ringing. You can reduce this by pressing * when you dial.

Early Termination

  • If your Broadband service ends for any reason you must return the modem in good working condition with cables and accessories within 30 days of notifying us of your intention to terminate.

On Account Discount
A "$10" discount on your broadband monthly plan price is available when you link a Vodafone On Account mobile to your Vodafone home broadband account.

How do I set up my 5G Broadband modem?

  1. If you ordered 5G Broadband online or over the phone you’ll get sent a SIM card as well as a modem. Just slide the SIM card provided into the slot on the bottom of your new 5G modem. It will click into place. If you bought a 5G modem from one of our stores the SIM card will already be inserted.
  2. If you already have 4G Wireless Broadband and are upgrading to 5G Broadband, head to vodafone.co.nz/4Gto5G and let our Chatbot TOBi know you have your new 5G Broadband modem. Once we hear from you, we’ll turn off your old 4G Wireless Broadband modem and switch you over to 5G Broadband. It’s normally instant, but can take up to 30 minutes to change over. If you don’t already have 4G Wireless Broadband, you can skip this step.
  3. Plug your modem into a power plug – the best place for a strong connection is near a window.
  4. When the 5G light on the front turns on, you’re connected to our superfast 5G mobile network. A green light means you have a strong connection, a yellow light means moderate and a red light means there’s a weak connection. If needed, move your modem to get a better signal strength, such as putting it by a window or ensuring it is not covered by anything.
  5. Use the Wi-Fi Name and Wi-Fi Password on the sticker on the bottom of the modem to connect your devices. And that’s it! You’re now online.

Are there any services I can't use with Wireless Broadband?

  • If you have a monitored home alarm or medical alarm, it’s really important that you call your alarm provider to find out if it’s compatible with Wireless Broadband.

What is the 111 Contact Code?

The Commerce Commission's 111 Contact Code (“111 Code”) was created to ensure that Vulnerable Consumers have reasonable access to an appropriate means of calling 111 emergency services in the event of a power failure.

Newer home phone services such as voice calling over broadband, which rely on an active working broadband service, won’t work in the event of a power failure, without an independent power source. The 111 Code requires Telecommunication Service Providers to provide Vulnerable Consumers with an alternative solution to contact 111 in an emergency.
If you are receiving Vodafone household voice calling over broadband services over Fibre, UltraFast HFC, VDSL, ADSL or Wireless technology and you, or someone you live with, do not have access to a traditional copper phone line, and is likely to need to contact 111 for health, safety or disability reasons and, you do not have the means to do so during a power failure, please read the information below and fill out a Vulnerable Consumers Application form.

If you qualify, Vodafone will provide you with an alternative means of contacting 111 in the event of a power failure, free of charge.

How can I keep track of my Wireless Broadband data?

The best place to track how much data you’re using, buy extra data or pay your bill is in the My Vodafone app. If you haven’t yet, download the app today from www.vodafone.co.nz/app and follow the steps to get set up.
