BT gives FREE broadband for Black Friday so you may declare yours
Black Friday is still a week away, but BT has already revealed its much-anticipated deals. And it’s a real eye-catcher. The company offers customers the opportunity to activate themselves free broadband for 3 months when they sign up for one of its fiber optic plans. Yes, you read that right – it’s completely free. Join BT’s Fiber 100 plan today, which offers average download speeds of around 150 Mbps (roughly double the UK average) and you won’t be billed by the company until March 2021.
BT also offers free activation and free postage and packaging for all of its Black Friday deals. This is in stark contrast to competitor Virgin Media, which cut the cost of its fiber broadband by as much as £ 342 but is still charging £ 35 upfront for activation and postage. If you’re looking for the lowest possible bills by the New Year, there’s no competition between Virgin Media and BT on Black Friday sales this year – you won’t be spending a penny on the latter.
Unfortunately, at some point you will have to pay for your broadband connection. If you do, BT’s pricing won’t be too dissimilar from what we’ve seen in the past, but certainly nothing very competitive.
For example, BT charges £ 39.99 for its aforementioned Fiber 100 plan. However, Sky charges £ 35 per month for its ultra-fast broadband tier, which is only slightly slower speeds at around 145Mbps. With the three months, BT is still cheaper … but only barely.
It’s definitely not such a great deal that we’d put you off going to Sky Broadband if you are thinking of opting for the all-new Sky Glass TV, which allows you to stream all of the Sky TV channels over broadband, the Box sets and blockbusters from Netflix, Prime Video, Disney +, and more, and includes a soundbar in a single 4K TV. The individually designed Sky Glass is only available directly from Sky. We have the facts about the latest Sky Black Friday deals here [LINK]
