Broadband offers are not just for Black Friday

It is offer round-up time, and BT Retail is back with its £100 Sainsbury Gift Cards on the Infinity products, and a lesser £50 voucher for the ADSL2+ based products. Virgin Media has had a sale running for some time, but has increased the appeal by adding a £25 credit for broadband-only services, £50 for double play and £100 for the triple play collections.

Sky has the option of a free NOW TV box or a £25 M&S voucher, with their main offer being 6 months half price TV and a £25 M&S voucher. TalkTalk has brought back its shopping voucher for a limited time again on its Plus TV product where a £30 voucher is available. PlusNet does not have any vouchers, but is offering unlimited ADSL2+ for £2.75 per month for the first 12 months, £9.99 thereafter (usual caveat of voice line rental to pay on top).

Update 12:15pm, Virgin Media has updated the speeds of its fastest product now that the existing speed upgrade programme is nearing completion. The 100 Mbps service is now listed as a 120 Mbps service, with the expectation that 96% of the Virgin Media cable network will be offering that speed by January 2014. The upgrades for existing 100 Mbps customers should be automatic.


Isn't the Plusnet offer £2.75, not £2.99?

I got an email from Bt yesterday, trying to tempt me with their infinity and a leaflet in a envelope from Talk Talk also trying to tempt, I have not opened the envelope and to be honest, I have not looked at the email only the title.

Even if I was out of contract with my ISP, they don't tempt me at all, nor Sky for that matter.

The expires just means stopping taking signups at that price, those who signup still get the 12 months at the price.

yes it is £2.75- too many listings to change on Friday

And nothing for those of us who can only get ADSL Max as the exchange has not been updated!

PN are probably the only ISP with no LLU network who offer reduced charges to people in a "low cost area" which until it changes are market 2&3 classed exchanges, other ISP's with no LLU network or those with but have no equipment in an exchange don't appear to pass any savings on to anyone.
Broadband through Market 1 exchanges can now perhaps be seen by some as offering less for more.
