5 frequently asked questions answered for Vodacom users 
 

1. I forgot my Vodacom router password. What now? 
 

  • Don’t stress! You can reset your router to its factory settings, which will reset the name and password to default. 
  • Remove the back cover of the router and you’ll see the reset button. It’s a tiny little button that requires the end of an earring, toothpick or paper clip to push it. 
  • Hold down the reset button for 5 seconds, or until you see the Vodacom logo light up again. 
  • The router’s password and name has now been reset. You’ll find its name and password on a sticker at the back of the router, or in the packaging that it came in.

2. How do I check how much data my Vodacom Wi-Fi router has used? 

  • From your laptop or PC, log into My Vodacom 
  • Select “My account” 
  • All of your data balances should be available to see 

 

3. Can I get 5G data packages with Vodacom? 

Yes and no. Although Vodacom built and launched South Africa’s first-ever 5G network for consumers in 2020, it isn’t available for everyone just yet. This is due to the service provider needing much more spectrum to grow the 5G network. At the moment, 5G is only available in parts of Jo’burg, Pretoria, Cape Town and Durban. View if you have 5G coverage. 

 

4. How do I check if my home can get Vodacom fibre?

5. What are upload and download speeds for Vodacom uncapped Wi-Fi or fibre? 

Don’t worry, you’re not about to enter the matrix with this explanation. Upload and download speeds refer to the amount of data transmitted to and from a server. Certain actions like sending an email, posting a photo on Instagram, sharing an article on Facebook, would be considered uploads because you are sending data to a server. Downloads would be tasks like scrolling through social media, opening and downloading an email attachment, streaming Netflix or opening a web page because you’re receiving data. For our range of Vodacom deals, with all their upload and download speeds here
