BT and Virgin Media broadband dwarfed, however these enormous financial savings gives finish tomorrow
BT and Virgin Media are slowly rolling out much faster broadband speeds across the UK, with millions of households now able to connect for ultra-fast 1 Gbps downloads. This ultimate connection is over 10 times faster than the UK average and gives users the ability to download a Full HD blockbuster in under 40 seconds, which is very impressive.
A 1Gbps connection will surely boost your next boxset binge, but this technology doesn’t exactly come cheap as both BT and Virgin charge around £ 60 a month to bring those lightning-fast speeds into your living room.
If that just sounds too much for your bank account then don’t worry as a rival is offering very fast broadband at a much lower price.
Right now, those who sign up for a plan from Community Fiber can get cash from a number of its plans, including 150Mbps speeds for just £ 20 a month or 1Gbps for £ 39. There’s also free installation, and the monthly price is for the duration of your 24-month contract (which BT doesn’t promise, with annual price increases expected for all customers).
The only thing to keep in mind is that Community Fiber only ships to areas in London and deals all end tomorrow September 16th.
It’s worth noting that Community Fiber isn’t the only company offering cheaper deals on fast broadband, as Hyperoptic is also cutting the cost of its fiber plans in a large flash sale. That means you can get 50 Mbps downloads for just £ 15 a month or 1 Gbps for a very reasonable £ 35.
Again, there is no upfront fee to be paid and the offer is valid for 24 months before prices rise to the standard fee.
One final deal worth mentioning comes from Three Mobile, with the UK network currently offering broadband at the lowest price ever.
There are two plans, including the company’s 4G hub for £ 14 per month or the 5G hub for £ 22. Both services use Three’s data network to beam the Internet into homes.
Three’s 5G broadband is capable of blazing speeds that can overshadow fixed line broadband, but this next-generation signal isn’t available across the UK.
