Virgin Media, Sky and BT look ludicrously expensive as rival reveals very cheap new deals


Virgin Media, Sky and BT Broadband customers might want to consider switching to a rival provider. Hyperoptic, which supplies broadband across a number of areas across the UK, has announced some very competitive new deals that make the big three Internet Service Providers (ISPs) look ludicrously expensive.

Right now, anyone switching to Hyperoptic can get fast 50Mbps internet pumped into their property for as little as £15 a month. Even the firm’s most impressive 1Gbps speeds, which will let you download a movie in HD in under 40 seconds, only costs £35 per month. That’s almost half the price of Virgin’s Gig1 service, which offers the same speed.


These deals are far cheaper than anything BT, Sky or Virgin can currently offer. For example, Hyperoptic is offering 150Mbps speeds for just £20 per month on a two-year deal. Virgin Media wants £44 for slower 100Mbps speeds, while Sky charges £35 (150Mbps) and BT’s Fibre 100 option costs £34.99 in a deal (but usually will set you back £39.99).

For those who want even quicker downloads then 500Mbps currently costs £30 per month with Hyperoptic. Similar speeds via BT or Sky will cost around £48 per month with Virgin wanting £62 per month.

It’s also worth noting that, unlike BT, Sky and Virgin, Hyperoptic isn’t in all areas of the UK so you will need to check on the firm’s availability page to see if your home is supplied by the firm.

Although Hyperotic is offering some pretty enticing discounts, BT has just revealed that it’s giving some customers a speed boost for free. The broadband supplier is now offering fibre customers the chance to trial better downloads before committing to a full 24-month contract.

Speaking about the offer Sharon Meadows, Director of Propositions, BT said: “We’re delighted to be introducing the speed boost to new BT Full Fibre customers. With a growing number of connected devices in the home and Brits adopting technology so readily, it’s more important than ever to have the fastest speeds and best reliability on the market.
