Black Friday broadband deals

Share this guide:

Last updated: 26 November 2021

It's that time of year again. Black Friday is fast approaching and retailers across the country will begin offering amazing deals to entice you. The broadband market is no different, with almost all providers offering discounts, freebies, and more across both Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This guide will help you to find the best deals. 

What is Black Friday?

A late November sales bonanza borrowed from the Americans, Black Friday has emerged as one of the best days of the year to nab deals on everything from appliances to fragrances to broadband contracts. 

In 2021, Black Friday falls on 26 November. After a subdued day last year, retailers are pulling out all the stops, slashing prices, offering cashback, matching competitorsprices, and throwing in giveaways too. Look for unbeatable bargains on broadband and mobile contracts, TVs, gaming consoles, tablets, toys, Christmas gifts and home goods. 

What is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday is Black Fridays digital twin, traditionally the day when online retailers get in on the action. The distinction between the two days has worn away as online shopping has become dominant. But some major retailers like Amazon still reserve their best deals for Monday.

This year, Cyber Monday falls on 29 November.

Black Friday broadband deals

Black Friday is the best day of the year to switch broadband providers and lock in bargains that will save you money for months to come. Competing for your contract, ISPs slash their monthly prices, waive upfront fees, throw in months for free and hand out electronics and gift cards. 

So, what are the best Black Friday broadband deals on offer this year? Let’s take a look at some of the UK’s major providers’ promotions in 2021:

BT

This year, BT is offering FREE broadband for the first three months of your contract across ALL of its packages. This can result in significant savings of up to £180 (on the BT Full Fibre 900 package).

On top of this, BT has slashed the price of all of its TV and Sport packages by half for the first three months of your contract. This means the Big Sport + Fibre 2 package, usually £72.99 a month, is available for the initial bargain price of just £20 per month!

You can also find great discounts on Virgin Media’s full-fibre only packages, including the lightning quick M500 Fibre Broadband deal for just £43 per month.

And if you're after a freebie with your broadband deal this Black Friday, how does a free 43" LG Smart TV or £250 bill credit sound? That's exactly what you'll get with the Bigger Bundle, provided you choose either Movies, Sports, or both, as an add-on.

How do I find the best deal on Black Friday?

Black Friday can be overwhelming, with retailers shouting amazing deals at you from every direction. How do you find the best deal on broadband for your household? Here are a few tips:

  • Consider what you want: Before you get swept away by the shiniest sale, take a step back and figure out your priorities. Do you want superfast or ultrafast broadband? Any TV channels? A sports package? Hundreds of pounds off a massive broadband and TV bundle doesnt make sense if you dont want all the channels it offers and you get locked into high monthly bills for years. The deals available might encourage you to upgrade for less money than you thought, but dont spring for a package that doesnt suit you.
  • Consider extras: Black Friday is a great time to bag gifts with your broadband contract. A gift card can reduce the overall cost, while extras like a new TV can be a great present for under the tree. Peruse the extras on offer but, again, dont sign a years-long broadband contract just to get the freebie.
  • Shop around: Black Friday can inspire a frenzy - think of those people on news reports throwing punches over discounted microwaves - but its the considered shopper who finds the best savings. Before you commit to a broadband contract, check out what the competitors are offering. Running a broadband comparison search can show you all the bargains available on one page.
  • Plan ahead: Broadband providers often tease their deals in the days before Black Friday. These sneak peeks can let you make a road map before the madness starts.
