Hyperoptic's Black Friday broadband deal offers a 1Gb package for £40 per month

Plus, up to 33% off their full range of fibre broadband packages.

With November in full swing, a number of providers are starting to put their Black Friday broadband deals live. This includes Hyperoptic, where you can currently get a whopping 1Gb package for only £40 per month.

Yeah, that average 900Mbps should be more than capable of dealing with incessant and all the increasing larger game updates. Looking at you, especially, Call of Duty.

While this is monumentally cheap for the speed on offer, the problem we always run into with Hyperoptic is that their coverage is very limited across the UK at the moment. Big cities (and mostly larger blocks of new build flats) is where the focus lies for the up-and-coming broadband provider right now. If you're in the catchment area, though, it's one heck of an offer. You can sign up from the link below:

But that's not all! Hyperoptic's Black Friday broadband deal actually applies across its full range of packages - including the brand new lower-end 30Mb package for just £17.99 per month. Other speeds have been given solid discounts, such as 150Mbps for £29 and 500Mbps for £35.

All of these Black Friday broadband deals from Hyperoptic are live from now until 2nd December.

With a quick look around, any nearest equivalent speeds are much more expensive. BT has Full Fibre 900 with 900Mbps download for £59.99 a month, while Virgin Media's latest Gig1 Fibre broadband starts at £62 per month. Similarly, though, these superfast packages are only available in some areas of the UK, so do check your postcode on the respective providers first.

For a more universally available broadband offer this Black Friday, your current next best option is TalkTalk's Fibre 150 package. It's currently £32 per month but you also get the first three months free.

We're keeping track of all the best bargains coming our way over the next few weeks, with pages dedicated to the best Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals, PS4 Black Friday offers and Xbox Black Friday discounts.
