With schools, workplaces, socialising and more now all taking place virtually, we are now using broadband more than ever before. That’s why Black Friday deals are an ideal way to make your life easier for less, by ramping up that internet speed. You’ll want to make sure you have the fastest available broadband in your area for the best price or with the most exclusive extras thrown in.

That’s where we come in. We’ve hunted down the best broadband deals at a range of internet providers. Big players such as Virgin and Sky are still offering impressive discounts on packages which include TV combos, 5G and payment-free months.

Keep in mind when you’re choosing your next broadband deal that different areas will have varying coverage, and in some cases, where you live may not be covered by the provider you’re interested in.

Your postcode will determine your eligibility so you should be able to check directly through the provider’s website. There will also be different prices for different internet speeds, which are measured in Mbps (megabits per second). The higher this value, the faster the connection should be so you’re likely to pay more for these options.

These are 2020’s best Cyber Monday broadband deals.

Best Black Friday and Cyber Monday broadband deals: quick links

As there are so many deals to get through, we’ve put together a quick list to the best Black Friday weekend internet offers from top providers here, before going into more detail further down this page.

Is Black Friday weekend a good time to get a good Broadband deal? 

The short answer is yes. Black Friday is a brilliant time to snap up a huge range of offers such as a broadband deal – and many discounts are still running for Cyber Monday. Monthly prices are often slashed and it’s important to remember that these savings will quickly add up month to month. Last year, we saw network providers cut prices across their packages as well as offer exciting extras including vouchers to spend at retailers including Amazon and Argos. There was also free access to subscription services and a free Google Nest Hub Max up for grabs, too.

While it has become more common for the likes of Sky and Vodafone to offer free extras all year round in their deals, Black Friday is the time of the year when prices drop to some of the lowest we’ve seen. This is combined with higher-value services and incentives being offered too, which are often exclusive to Black Friday deals.

You can also get the freebies from each plan included as well, such as an Apple TV 4K if you choose Superfast Extra Broadband and a choice of Amazon Prime, YouTube Premium or Spotify with Entertainment data plans.

How to work out what’s a good deal: Tips for choosing broadband

There are several factors you need to consider before buying a broadband package.

  • Check what broadband options are available in your area. Not all providers and types of broadband can be accessed in every location, so make sure you check what is on offer for your postcode.
  • Think about how much you will be using your broadband and what for. For anyone working from home, some of the ‘budget’ packages may not be fast enough and you may prefer a fibre deal with unlimited download limits.
  • When choosing a deal think about the details. You need to consider the price, length of the contract, the data allowance, the broadband speed and if any other benefits such as line rental and subscription services are included in the price.
  • Read up on the provider’s customer service and customer satisfaction. Broadband speeds and data aside, it is important to know how easy and painless contacting customer service will be and how quickly any queries or issues will be resolved.

When does Black Friday 2020 end?

Black Friday fell on 27th November in 2020,  less than a month before Christmas. The event began as a US tradition and so it always falls on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

While Black Friday may have been and gone, deals are running throughout the weekend – culminating in the Cyber Monday sale on 30th November this year.

Traditionally, Black Friday discounts have largely only been available in-store, while Cyber Monday was reserved for online deals. However, in recent years the line between the two has become blurred and, now that lockdown restrictions mean that all non-essential stores will have to remain closed, all the deals will be online.

Because there is now less of a distinction between the two shopping events, it is often just branded ‘Black Friday weekend’.

What broadband deals were there last year?

Last year’s Black Friday saw broadband deals from all the major providers including BT, Vodafone, Sky and Virgin Media. One of the best deals was from Vodafone. The network gave away a free Google Nest Hub Max (worth £219) to every customer who bought a fibre package. Other decent offers included TalkTalk cut the price of both its fibre broadband packages to £21.95, and John Lewis gave customers a £40 gift card to spend on their website when they bought a standard broadband package.
