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

21053 Someone from VIC thinks vodafone is Shocking internet connection at 8 Mar 2012 06:34:05 PM
Since January my Samsung Galaxy SII has intermittent internet. I mean it connects for say 30mins. The no internet for 5mins. Then back on again for 30secs. Then nothing for one hour. Totally unpredictable so it makes my internet basically unreliable and not worth bothering with. My phone useage is basically for internet!

I live in South Yarra and returned to Vodafone only because of their big advertising campaign to roll out a new network that would benefit South Yarra. Since that roll out my service has failed!!!

I complained in Jan and was told there was no problem. Asked to change some settings which I did to no avail. They asked me to try a different handset; I did that and the problem was not corrected. I called again and they explained there was a technical issue and that it would be fixed by 1st Feb.

On 2nd Feb my internet connectivity was worse than ever. I called back and discussed termination. I was told I could cancel and they would waive the termination fees. I waited as I was reluctant to go through the hassle of cancellation (getting a new provider/phone etc).

Through Feb the technical team called me to keep me updated (I consider that stupid as there is clearly a problem with my internet connectivity and no amount of updates will help that). In March they told me the problem was rectified. At that time I had just experienced a very frustrating few hours with no internet connectivity at all. I explained this but their consultant insisted that the problem was fixed.

I called back to discuss termination. They now deny there is a problem and want me to pay full termination charges.

I dont doubt that all telecom companies will do what they can to extract fees but I feel that they are playing dirty by denying the problem.
