You know the score – it’s an Easter article. So you’ll be expecting a choc-load of egg-based puns and maybe even some ill-judged allusions to things rising from the dead. Well, not here – just a quintet of fabulous broadband deals for you to choose from and get one of your holiday tasks ticked off with ease.
And coincidentally, there are a bunch of great internet deals to choose from at the moment (It’s almost like the ISPs know that people will be shopping for broadband this weekend). Among them are the very best cheap broadband only deal in the UK, BT fibre with FREE Google Home and a TechRadar EXCLUSIVE on the market’s best priced fibre plan.
1. £20 Amazon.co.uk Gift Card with cheap fibre
Vodafone Superfast 1 | 18 months | Avg. speed 35Mb | Line rental inc. | FREE activation | £21 per month + £20 Amazon.co.uk Gift Card
Vodafone has made its name as one of the cheapest fibre broadband deals providers out there and it’s even better now thanks to this TechRadar exclusive. Sign up by midnight on Sunday, and it will throw in a £20 Amazon.co.uk Gift Card bonus. Or, an extra fiver a month means you can almost double the speeds to 63Mb.

2. The UK’s cheapest broadband only deal
Onestream Flow Unlimited Broadband | 12 months | Avg. speed 11Mb | Line rental incl. | £9.99 upfront | £13.99 per month
If you see paying for internet as a necessary evil rather and just want to see the lowest sum possible on your bills every month, then Onestream is the provider for you. Obviously not the biggest name in the business, but check out those ridiculous bills! It undercuts the likes TalkTalk and Plusnet by a good few quid per month.
3. FREE Google Home with BT Superfast fibre
BT Superfast Fibre | 18 months | Avg. speed 50Mb | Weekend calls | £9.99 delivery | £28.99pm + Google Home
The most popular ISP in the land, BT can afford to charge a bit more for its fibre broadband (just compare the monthly bills to Vodafone above!). But that doesn’t mean it isn’t great value – you get faster average speeds, free weekend calls and, as an added bonus, a free Google Home smart speaker worth around £120. Nice.
4. Broadband with added Game of Thrones
Now Brilliant Broadband | 12 months | Avg. speed 11Mb | Landline incl. | FREE upfront | £18 per month + 6 months Entertainment Pass
A name synonymous with TV, it’s no surprise that Now Broadband has come up trumps in time for the new Game of Thrones season. Sign up for any of its plans (ADSL, £25 p/m fibre or £30 p/m fastest fibre) and it will treat you to 6 months of the Entertainment Pass. So that means you can watch every Game of Thrones episode ever made at your leisure.
Virgin Media VIP bundle | 12 months | Avg. speed 362Mb | Anytime calls | £25 set-up | £89 a month
Now we know that this one isn’t going to be for everybody, but if you’re somebody who demands the best (and can get Virgin cable broadband on your street), then this is the one. With broadband you’re getting ridiculous average speeds of 362Mb. That means you can game, stream, browse all at the same time to your heart’s content. On the TV side you’re getting access to a host of HD viewing like Sky Cinema, Sky Sports and BT Sports – not to mention the 260 other channels included. It’s all here!
