- Speeds of up to 50Mb
- Free £80 Mastercard gift card
- Free Fitbit Charge 3
- £35.99 £31.99 a month
- £19.99 activation fee
- Unlimited UK weekend calls
BT has a number of packages, starting with up to 10Mb speed for £24.99 a month. The standout deal for us is their Superfast Fibre package, with a free £80 Mastercard and a free Fitbit Charge 3 wearable for £31.99 a month.
This was priced at £35.99 but has been reduced in cost, and there is an £19.99 upfront fee for activation.
It’s accompanied by the latest BT Smart Hub router, unlimited monthly usage with no-cap, unlimited UK weekend calls and access BT WiFi hotspots as a part of the offer.
Virgin Media Broadband
- Average speed of 108Mb
- £27 a month
- Only 12 month contract
- Weekend calls
- £20 activation fee
Virgin Media broadband packages start at 54Mb for £27 a month on a 12 month contract, with a one time set-up cost of £20.
That’s on the Vivid 50 package, but for the same monthly cost you can get the Vivid 100 plan with speeds of 108Mb.
This is thanks to a free speed boost that’s currently on a discounted offer, plus a free Virgin Media Hub 3 and its talk weekend phone package of free land land calls on Saturday and Sunday.
Virgin states this is for busy households, with 5 to 9 devices accessing the internet at once – although we’re sure many will find it useful with less devices.
- Average speeds of up to 63Mb
- £27 a month
- £9.95 activation fee
- Call screening
Sky has a few packages, starting with 11Mb for £18 a month, but the one that caught our eye has speeds of 63Mb.
This is called Sky Fibre Max and costs the princely sum of £27 a month. Sky guarantees your download line speed or your money back – which has to be a good selling point.
It also has the Sky Q Hub and Sky WiFi hotspot access factored in, plus there are a range of phone packages that could be added.
The first fee paying one is priced at £4 a month, with inclusive calls to UK mobile and landline numbers at evenings and weekends.
That’s coupled with Sky Talk Shield, which is a personalised call screening service that allows you to listen to who’s calling and accept or block the call.
- Average speed 66Mb
- £50 cashback
- 1,000 minutes to mobiles
- £28.99 a month
- £25 free activation
Plusnet’s packages start with a 36Mb offering for £23.99, but our choice deal has £50 cashback.
This comes with speeds up to 66Mb, no fee for activation, a free Plusnet Hub One Wi-Fi router, McAfee security and all for £28.99 a month.
You also get free evening and weekend calls to landlines, along with 1,000 minutes to UK mobiles during those times.
That’s with a fixed price, so that mean there’s no price rises, any time, during 18 month contract duration.
- Average speeds 67Mb
- £100 gift card
- Free 5GB data for mobile plans
- £41 £31 a month
- No activation fee
EE’s packages start at the £21 a month for 10Mb, moving up to a 300Mb plan. It’s the Fibre Plus, 67Mb deal that costs £31 a month that’s our recommendation.
This comes with a free £100 pre-loaded Mastercard, plus a £10 monthly saving on this current deal.
And if you are already an EE pay monthly customer, you’ll get an extra 5GB of data added to your tariff every month – worth £12.99.
