Our pick of the best Black Friday broadband deals

If you just want to know what we think are the best deals, read our picks below. We are only featuring fibre deals for a reason – there’s a lot more value to be had here than with standard broadband. However, in our provider roundups, we do feature standard broadband deals for those interested.

Best Fast Fibre Broadband Black Friday deals

These deals are for speeds around 30Mb, which suits smaller households who want to use the internet for streaming and browsing.

  • Plusnet – Unlimited Fibre Broadband – £21.99 per month (Avg. speed 36Mb,18-month contract, £50 prepaid card) – This is our top pick in this category, offering decent speeds with the extra sweetener of the £50 prepaid card, pushing the effective to £19.20 a month.
  • John Lewis Broadband – Fibre – £25 per month  (Avg. speed 36Mb, 12-month contract, £50 e-gift card) – Although slightly more expensive, John Lewis Broadband’s offer is competitive and the £50 John Lewis gift card is a nice extra. This will also suit those not looking for a long commitment.

Best Superfast Fibre Broadband Black Friday deals

These deals are for speeds around 60Mb, which suits medium-sized households who have people using the internet at the same time and/or who like to use the internet for high quality streaming or some light gaming.

  • Plusnet – Unlimited Fibre Extra Broadband – £24.99 per month (Avg. speed 66Mb, 18-month contract, £60 reward card) – Similar to the 36Mb packages, this is another strong deal from Plusnet, offering good speeds with a slightly higher value reward card.
  • BT – Fibre 1 – £26.99 per month  (Avg. speed 50Mb, 24-month contract, £60 reward card, three months free) – For those looking for a known name, this deal from BT is much better than we usually see from them and so is worth considering.

Now Broadband

NOW Broadband Black Friday broadband deals

NOW Broadband has a few deals this Black Friday including what it claims to be the lowest ever price on its Super Fibre package, with average speeds of 63Mb for just £24 a month.

You can get all the deals on a 12-month contract and only pay £5 for the router delivery. Alternatively, all the deals are available with no minimum contract and a £60 upfront fee, which certainly will be attractive to customers looking for a low commitment deal.

All the packages also come with free anytime calls for 12 months, although be sure to cancel if you do not want to pay the £8 a month after the initial contract.

  • Brilliant Broadband – £18 per month  (Avg. speed 11Mb, 12-month contract, Free anytime calls)  
  • Fab Fibre – £22 per month  (Avg. speed 36Mb, 12-month contract, Free anytime calls) 
  • Super Fibre – £24 per month  (Avg. speed 63Mb, 12-month contract, Free anytime calls)  

Are the deals any good?: The two fibre deals are pretty impressive, especially when you consider the no-contract basis. NOW Broadband does say that prices may change during the first 12 months, so that is something to be mindful of.

NOW Broadband also got some poor reviews for how easy they were to contact and the technical support they offered in our satisfaction survey.

John Lewis Black Friday broadband deals

This Black Friday, John Lewis Broadband has introduced price cuts to all three of its packages. The headline package is Fibre Extra, which gives you average speeds of 66Mb for £28 a month.

As an extra sweetener, John Lewis is also offering e-gift cards to spend in John Lewis stores or online up to £75. Packages also come with free evening and weekends landline plan included.


Check out John Lewis’ Black Friday deals on TVs, Vacuum cleaners and more.


  • Unlimited – £18 per month  (Avg. speed 10Mb, 12-month contract, £40 e-gift card)  
  • Fibre – £25 per month  (Avg. speed 36Mb, 12-month contract, £50 e-gift card) 
  • Fibre Extra – £28 per month  (Avg. speed 66Mb, 12-month contract, £75 e-gift card)  

Are the deals any good?: If you often shop in John Lewis, the e-gift cards are a nice touch, but these discounts are not heavy enough to really move the needle.

For those looking for a shorter contract, these do represent good value, although it is wise to switch or re-contract to avoid the steep price hikes. Prices will also go up with inflation + 3.9% as part of the contract, so look elsewhere if you want a fixed price.

BT Black Friday broadband deals

BT has deals on all its fibre packages this year, with the main attraction of three months free with no upfront fees. They all come with a speed guarantee and BT’s smart hub, and for a limited time, you can get a reward card with the Fibre 1 and Fibre 2 packages that you can spend in most places that accept Mastercard. Customers can also get six months of Britbox when taking out a package.

  • Fibre Essential – £26.99 per month (Avg. speed 36Mb, 24-month contract, three months free)
  • Fibre 1 – £26.99 per month  (Avg. speed 50Mb, 24-month contract, £60 reward card, three months free)  
  • Fibre 2 – £31.99 per month  (Avg. speed 67Mb, 24-month contract, £100 reward card, three months free) 

BT Black Friday broadband and TV deals

New BT TV customers can get three months half price on all TV packages alongside the three months of free broadband which can save you up to £107.49, depending on the package you select. BT TV now also includes Sky channels such as Sky Sports via NOW TV.

  • Entertainment – £12 per month (24-month contract, three months half price)
  • Big Entertainment – £22 per month (24-month contract, three months half price)
  • Sport – £15 per month  (24-month contract, three months half price) 
  • Big Sport– £40 per month (24-month contract, three months half price)  
  • VIP– £65 per month (24-month contract, three months half price) 

Are the deals any good?:  Discounting the Fibre Essential package which offers slower speeds and no reward card for the same price as FIbre 1, these broadband deals from BT are a refreshing change from the high prices we are used to seeing from the telecoms giant. The TV deals are a bit more of a mixed bag but certainly compete with Sky’s prices, even when including its own channels.

The 24-month contract is quite long but it may be worth it if you do not want to switch every year. Although it should be mentioned that prices do go up with Inflation + 3.9% every year so your bill will go up from the prices you see here.

It is worth checking out what BT customers said in our survey as well with BT getting some mixed reviews.

Sky Black Friday broadband deals

For Black Friday, Sky has brought out a slew of deals both for broadband and TV customers.

For broadband customers, there are two deals to choose from with the Superfast package with anytime landline calls getting a 30% discount, and the Ultrafast package, also with anytime landline calls, receiving a 20% discount.

Sky customers can also add Sky Broadband Boost for £5 extra a month which gives you a WiFi guarantee, flexible engineer visits and parental controls for those interested, although it should be seen as a nice extra rather than a must-have add-on.

  • Superfast – £25 per month (Avg. speed 59Mb, 18-month contract, free anytime calls included)
  • Ultrafast – £35 per month (Avg. speed 145Mb, 18-month contract, free anytime calls included)

Sky Black Friday broadband and TV deals

There is much more variety when it comes to TV deals, The highlight for TV customers is 50% off selected Sky TV packages when you join Sky TV. Packages eligible include Sky Multiscreen, Cinema, Sports, Ultimate TV add-on and Kids.

Sky customers can also get Netflix added to their TV package with Sky currently also offering Sky TV, Superfast broadband and Netflix together as one deal for customers this Black Friday.

You can mix and match in a seemingly endless number of ways, but here’s an idea of how costs shape up:

  • Sky TV – Starts from £25 per month (18-month Contract, 50% off selected packages added)
  • Sky TV, Superfast Broadband and Netflix – £41.50 per month (Avg. speed 59Mb, 18-month contract)
  • Sky TV, Superfast Broadband and Sky Sports – £54 per month (Avg. speed 59Mb, 18-month contract)
  • Sky TV, Superfast Broadband and Big Bundle – £80.50 per month (Avg. speed 59Mb, 18-month contract, includes Sky SportsSky Cinema & Netflix, KidsHDUltra HD & Multiscreen)

Are the deals any good? These deals are definitely on the more expensive side of offers we have seen this Black Friday, even taking the TV discount into account.

If you are someone who needs anytime landline calling or likes all their telecoms bill coming out of one place, they may be worth considering. It’s definitely worth shopping around to make sure, though.

This year, Plusnet is running deals on all its packages. Each comes with no setup costs, as well as a prepaid reward card up to £60 in value which you can spend online and anywhere that accepts Mastercard (which is pretty much everywhere).

As well as the low price, Plusnet customers also get UK-based customer service seven days a week and online parental security controls.

  • Unlimited Broadband – £17.99 per month (Avg. speed 10Mb, 18-month contract, £50 prepaid card)

  • Unlimited Fibre Extra Broadband – £24.99 per month (Avg. speed 66Mb, 18-month contract, £60 reward card)

Are the deals any good? Although marketed differently, this is a fairly standard deal from Plusnet and nothing we wouldn’t expect to see throughout the year. They are still good deals however and are worth considering.

TalkTalk Black Friday broadband deals

TalkTalk has gone for a slightly different approach to Black Friday this year, offering three months free on all its fibre packages when you sign up for 24 months, which it claims can save you £96 over the contract. When you go through W? Switch Broadband, you can also get a £90 voucher to spend on early Christmas presents.

TalkTalk customers can also expect no setup costs (although there is a postage and packing cost for the router) and no mid-contract price rises.

  • Fibre 35 – £23.50 per month (Avg. speed 38Mb, 24-month contract, three months free)
  • Fibre 65 – £26 per month (Avg. speed 67Mb, 24-month contract, three months free, £90 Voucher when you go through W? Switch Broadband)
  • Fibre 150 – £32 per month (Avg. speed 145Mb, 24-month contract, three months free)

Are the deals any good? This type of deal is quite novel and does represent a decent saving if you are willing to tie yourself down to the 24-month contract. It should be said that while TalkTalk may offer cheap deals, many customers rated it poorly for support and reliability.

Virgin Media Black Friday broadband deals

As the only nationwide cable broadband provider, Virgin Media is known for being a bit pricey compared with rivals, but it has upped its game this Black Friday. The pick of the bunch is Virgin’s M100 deal, which it claims is currently at ‘its lowest ever price’ at £24.99 a month on an 18-month contract. It is backed up by three other deals with average speeds up to 516Mb available, depending on the package.

  • M100 – £24.99 per month (Avg. speed 108Mb, 18-month contract, £75 Amazon Voucher if you go through W? Switch Broadband)
  • M200 – £30.99 per month (Avg. speed 213Mb, 18-month contract, £75 Amazon Voucher if you go through W? Switch Broadband)
  • M350 – £36.99 per month (Avg. speed 362Mb, 18-month contract, £75 Amazon Voucher if you go through W? Switch Broadband)
  • M500 – £42.99 per month (Avg. speed 516Mb, 18-month contract, £75 Amazon Voucher if you go through W? Switch Broadband)

Are the deals any good? £24.99 a month for ultrafast broadband is attractive, but it jumps up to £44 after the contract ends, a 76% price increase. For the M500 package, that’s an eye-watering £62 extra a month.

While there are cheaper prices to be had elsewhere, if you have a need for speed at any cost, then Virgin may be tricky to beat this year – just don’t forget to haggle or switch when that contract ends.

How to get the best deal on your new broadband package.

There are a range of things you should consider when shopping for a new broadband deal, so make sure you know the answers to these questions before you start shopping around.

Should I upgrade to fibre?

It used to be the case that superfast fibre broadband cost substantially more than copper-based slower standard broadband, but in recent years, the price gap has almost disappeared. In fact there are now examples of superfast deals that are cheaper than standard packages.

Apart from speed, the main benefit of superfast broadband is its ability to handle more connections than standard broadband can, which helps if you have a lot of people using the internet at the same time. Reliability is a factor that’s taken on new importance this year, so it’s an important one to bear in mind.

Superfast is now available in 95% of UK households – check to see if superfast broadband is available in your area.

Still not convinced? Read our guide for more advice on what broadband speed is right for you.

How long a contract should I get?

Broadband packages are typically sold in a variety of contract lengths ranging from 30 days to 24 months. While you might think that the longer the package, the cheaper the price, it’s not always the case.

Some providers offer their cheapest price on a shorter contract in order to get you onto the more expensive standard tariff faster, hoping you will stay. That’s why sometimes it might be worth paying one or two pounds more a month if you can to lock in the price for longer and save yourself money in the long run.

Ultimately, it’s worth looking at what the price is after the contract and also, whether you are prepared to commit yourself to a provider for up to two years.

Will my new broadband be faster?

If speed is of the essence, you’ll want to make sure you’re getting better than you have right now. Use our broadband speed checker to get an idea of your current speeds – and make sure the device you’re running the checker on is connected directly to your router, for a more reliable measurement. You can compare this to the average download speed promised by your existing provider, and a new provider. Bear in mind these measurements aren’t exact, but they should give you an idea of whether there will be a clear speed benefit if you switch or upgrade.

Should you stay or should you go?

If you’ve found a deal that you like, but you’re otherwise happy with your provider, you might be a bit reluctant to switch. You could try haggling with your broadband provider to see if they can match or better the deal, but if they won’t, switching might be your best option. Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to do – our guide on how to switch broadband provider explains how.

Check out your new provider before you commit

Before you switch, it’s worth looking into your new provider to make sure they tick the boxes. We regularly survey customers of 14 major broadband providers to find out their views on everything from customer service and ease of contacting the provider.
