Dear visitor,

Since its inception Vodafail.com has made a significant contribution towards raising awareness of the problems and issues faced by Vodafone customers.

Vodafone Australia customers have had the opportunity to voice their concerns, their fears and their troubles from every corner of Australia and beyond our borders. You have gathered the courage to stand up for your rights as consumers and to make your voice heard.

Each and every person who shared their story should have a sense of pride in this achievement and the changes that have occurred since the start of Vodafail.com.

More recently, traffic to Vodafail.com has declined significantly. Having achieved the goal of raising awareness and promoting concrete action in early 2011, we have now reached the point of closing Vodafail to new complaints. The site will remain online for as long as possible as a reminder and an example of what is possible when we share our experiences.

It has been a privilege to run this initiative and I'm am forever grateful for the help and support I've received. In particular I would like to thank Melissa, David and Travis for their continued efforts over the past 15 months. I'm also thankful and humbled by the support of ACCAN, Choice magazine and a wide range of media outlets, blogs and websites.

You can still browse existing stories and find out how to file a complaint if you are experiencing problems.

Until next time,

Adam Brimo

18474 Someone from QLD thinks vodafone is No service at 21 Jun 2011 12:44:57 PM
Told today when I went to shop to cancel service [called VF twice yesterday] that their network was being upgraded in my area and work would not finish for another two months. I was on a month to month plan but the sales rep I was connected to by phone in store insisted I HAD TO PAY FOR THE MODEM I OWNED OUTRIGHT. This was because I was a customer with VF but due to declining network availability and customers info being hacked got out of contract.

This morning could only get a 2g connection. Days before today either no connection or one page would load then nothing. Did a ozspeedtest.com test and it said I had downloaded GB/s in 0/s that's right 0 seconds. Wonder how this compares to the speed of light! Yesterday there was a recorded message saying they were having difficulties with their accounting system. Not surprised. Imagine what your bill would be like.

Just posting in case others have had this experience and VF keep trying to troubleshoot YOUR problem. Quite frankly their network is stuffed in Mansfield Qld and has been since earlier this year [~Feb/March]. Thought I'd give them another shot in vain hope that after MONTHS their network would be fixed. Not so.
