Virgin Media and BT rival presents the final word motive to change your broadband
If you want super fast broadband then BT and Virgin Media both offer lightning fast downloads. BT has its Full Fiber 900 while Virgin is now offering Gig1 for over 10 million properties across the UK. In fact, Virgin has just upgraded another 2.5 million buildings in the UK to its fastest technology, which means that 12.8 million households can now benefit from this super-fast technology.
This internet access allows you to download files at speeds more than 13 times faster than the UK average, with a Full HD Hollywood movie arriving on your TV in less than 40 seconds – compared to over 10 minutes on a standard connection with 70 Mbit / s.
That all sounds great, but this gigabit broadband isn’t exactly cheap. Both BT and Virgin charge around £ 60 a month for the privilege, which is a pretty big investment, especially since you need to sign up for at least 18 months.
Fortunately, there is a way to beam those speeds into your living room for a much, much cheaper price. Hyperoptic has just announced its 10th birthday and to celebrate its time in the UK the Internet Service Provider is running a crazy deal on its top speeds.

This means that right now you can get 1 Gbps broadband for just £ 20 a month – that’s a saving of £ 40 off the standard price.
Not only is the price lowered, but the company also offers the reduced price for two years.
This deal is so good that Hyperoptic doesn’t have it long since consumers only have until October 20th to sign up. There is a £ 20 connection fee, but if you want gigabit speeds you probably won’t find anything cheaper.
One final note is that Hyperoptic is not available across the UK, although its service and network is growing and now spans 57 UK cities and towns – an increase of 15 from 2020.

Dana Tobak, CEO of Hyperoptic, speaks about the deal: “Today marks a major milestone in the history of Hyperoptic. In 2011 the term “gigabit broadband” sounded very futuristic. The market was ripe for disruption, but as a start-up we were competing with some industry giants whose existing technology was incompatible with next-generation broadband delivery and who didn’t want to cannibalize their customer base.
“Hyperoptic’s success is thanks to the support of our incredible customers and customers who have always been our greatest advocates. We are very much looking forward to the next ten years and the implementation of our ambitious growth plans, in which we will continue to scale our network and set the best practice example for our industry. “
