Full Fibre (FTTP) using home phone help Vodaphone

Currently have a plusnet fibre (FTTC)  contarct which ends in a month , from what I can see plusnets Full Fibre ( FTTP) does not allow voice services 

I am therefore looking at swapping to Vodaphone Full Fibre 100 ( better price ) and from I have read can plug in landline to Vodaphone router via adapter ?

Does any know if this is correct regarding Vodaphone Full Fibre being able to plug in landline ( need to keep landline for care reasons  ) and any feedback regarding Vodaphone much appreciated 

Many thanks Steve 


  • Hi,

    I signed my Aunt and Uncle up for Vodafone.   They requested to keep their phone number during the order and the phone just plugs into the Vodafone router and works fine, no problems at all.   Everything was provided by vodafone so it was just a matter of plugging their existing phone in.  You wouldn't know any difference with the old phone service - it works exactly the same for phone calls.

    When you say it is for care reasons, have you got some sort of device that connects to the phoneline or do you just mean that you need to be able receive and make normal phone calls?   Some older devices are not compatible with VoIP.
  • Care is that father in law only ever calls land line 
  • In that case it will work fine.

    We've had both BT FTTP and Vodafone FTTP and in both cases the phone just plugs into the back of the router and works exactly the same as it did before.

    Our DECT phones with answering machine still work as does an ancient push-button (1996 vintage) BT 200+ phone which although an ornament is plugged in and still works

    The "VoIP adapter" supplied by Vodafone is a simple RJ11 to BT adapter but doesn't have a ringing capacitor.
    Some, especially older, phones need an adapter with a ringing capacitor (or use a spare microfilter which will have a capacitor in it).
