It’s a number Boxing Day for Three Mobile, which has already slashed 50% off the cost of a brand-new iPhone 13 and is now offering broadband customers the choice between a free 32-inch Smart TV from Toshiba, or a free Samsung laptop worth £379 – with prices starting from a ludicrous £15 a month. Better yet, all of Three’s broadband bundles are completely unlimited, so you don’t need to worry about extra charges for downloading endless boxsets, movies, software updates and backing up photos.
Get a free Toshiba-designed LED TV with this broadband package! At only £15 a month for the first 6 months of your contract, it’s a bargain. Especially when you consider that Three’s 5G bundle doesn’t require a landline or installation – simply plug in and connect to the speedy internet service. Since it’s powered by 5G, you can expect average download speeds of 100Mbps – easily beating the average UK home broadband speed of 70Mbps.
Average speeds: 100Mbps | Unlimited downloads | Contract length: 24-months
Worth £379 when bought from your local high street store, this Samsung-designed laptop is an incredibly generous freebie. Unfortunately, you won’t enjoy the same half-price bills as the bundle above, but you will enjoy the same speedy 100Mbps download speeds. Since it’s powered by 5G, you won’t need to worry about any wires from your Wi-Fi router and can unplug and move it around the house to boost signal to your garden or attic conversion, for example.
Average speeds: 100Mbps | Unlimited downloads | Contract length: 24-months
If you don’t want the faster speeds available with the pricier 5G Hub, or can’t get the next-generation network in your area quite yet, this is a great alternative. And you’ll still be eligible for the free Smart TV worth £249 and the first six months of your new broadband contract will be half price too – dropping the monthly cost down to just £11.50
Average speeds: 50-100Mbps | Unlimited downloads | Contract length: 24-months
If you’re looking for the fastest speeds, you’ll need to opt for Three’s 5G-fuelled broadband. If you decide you’d like the 32-inch Toshiba LED television (worth £189 when bought separately), that speedier 5G option costs £15 a month for the first six months of your new contract. Rather than rely on the copper or fibre-optic cables running underneath your street, these broadband plans leverage the superfast 5G mobile network. This is the same network used by the latest smartphones, including the iPhone 13 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3, and offers average download speeds of around 100Mbps. For comparison, the average home broadband speed in the UK was measured at 70Mbps earlier this year.
So, you’ll be able to download films, stream binge-worthy boxsets, and make video calls faster than the cables in your street.
If you’re looking to slash your monthly bills down to new lows, you’ll be pleased that – for the first time – Three Mobile is also including the free telly bundle as part of its £11.50 a month 4G Hub broadband plan. Just like the plan above, this uses a SIM card to beam internet into your home. However, the older 4G network is a little slower, so Three doesn’t offer an approximate average download speed. However, in the small print, it reveals that customers can expect to see between 50Mbps – 100Mbps when downloading. While that’s more than enough for one person to stream boxsets from Netflix in crisp 4K Ultra HD, it’s probably not quite enough for busy households with multiple people watching movies, streaming music, uploading their photos to social media, downloading software updates and more.

Want a Samsung Chromebook 4+? You’ll need to opt for the £30 a month 5G bundle, which boasts the same 100Mbps top download speeds. That should be more than enough to stream Netflix series in crisp Ultra HD 4K picture quality to your new laptop, make video calls and collaborate on documents with friends and colleagues without a hint of buffering.
While there’s no doubt that delivering speedy Wi-FI around your home via a 5G or 4G network is a little unusual, the result is exactly the same as a traditional broadband contract. The speeds delivered by the 5G SIM are beamed out as a local Wi-Fi network, so you can connect all of your gadgets. But unlike a traditional router, you’ll be able to unplug and move Three’s 5G Hub around the house without any hassle. Since there’s no broadband cable to connect, you can move the hub around the house – and even take it to a friend’s house for the afternoon!
Those who sign-up for either Three’s 5G unlimited or 4G unlimited home broadband service will be treated to an impossibly simple set-up too. Three will mail out the Wi-Fi hub – and that’s it. You won’t need a landline or have to book an engineer appointment for the installation, simply plug it in and it’ll be ready to use.
If you’re not sure about trying Wi-Fi beamed to your house with 5G signals, live in an area without a strong 5G signal, or want to compare the latest deal against the competition, Express.co.uk has rounded up some of the best broadband deals around…
With average download speeds between 65-73.5Mbps, this isn’t the fastest connection on the list, but it’s a great price. And if you’re short of a Christmas present, signing up before December 20 will bag you an Amazon Fire HD tablet for free from Vodafone too!
Contract Length: 24 months | Upfront cost: FREE

At 12-months, this is one of the shorter contract lengths – perfect for those who want to keep switching to always get the best deal
Contract Length: 12 months | Upfront cost: £5
While you might not associate Shell Energy with broadband, the company offers decent download speeds at competitive prices. And since it runs on BT’s Openreach network, you’re likely to already have the right infrastructure in your street. Right now, Shell has slashed the cost of its Fibre Plus package from £35.99 a month down to £21.99 for the duration of your contract. Bargain!
Contract Length: 18 months | Upfront cost: FREE
While GigaClear might not have the brand recognition of some of the other brands in this list, it more than makes up for that with some phenomenal deals. Right now, you can get 300Mbps download speeds – almost 4x faster than the UK average speed – for less than £25 a month. You’ll also get unlimited downloads and free installation. Unfortunately, it’s not available as widely nationwide as BT, Sky or Virgin Media… but that’s really the only snag here!
Contract Length: 18 months | Upfront cost: FREE
Plusnet has dropped its £10 activation fee on this plan – and added a £70 Gift Card to its popular Fibre Extra plan ahead of Xmas. In terms of the broadband bundle, you’ll get acceptable 66Mbps speeds and unlimited usage. The 18-month minimum contract isn’t the shortest on this list, but it won’t tie you in as long as some providers, like BT!
Contract Length: 18 months | Upfront cost: FREE
Virgin Media is offering some gigantic speeds at some seriously competitive prices right now. For example, its M100 broadband is down to just £28 a month. BT charges over £30 a month for comparable speeds, which average at 108Mbps. You don’t need to worry about a landline phone either as this is a broadband-only contract – perfect if you already get enough spam calls to your mobile number!
Contract Length: 18 months | Upfront cost: £35
For the same price as Virgin Media’s 108Mbps downloads, Sky will plug your house into guaranteed download speed of 50Mbps. However, Sky is available more widely than Virgin Media and has better customer service ratings. 59Mbps is more than enough bandwidth to stream Netflix and Disney+ in Ultra HD without issue. Downloads are all unlimited too, so no worries about any hidden charges. No one-off charges to get set up either!
Contract Length: 18 months | Upfront cost: £19.95
BT is upgrading customers on its Fibre 2 plan to its eye-wateringly fast Fibre 500 bundle for an entire month – at no extra cost. That means you’ll benefit from download speeds of 500Mbps (that’s 7x faster than the UK average) over the busy Christmas period when you’ve got a full house looking to back-up photos, stream Christmas films and music. Plus, if you use our EXCLUSIVE link, you’ll also benefit from a £90 Gift Card to spend in any shop that accepts Mastercard ahead of the big day!
Contract Length: 24 months | Upfront cost: FREE
Unfortunately, this super-speedy bundle isn’t available nationwide, but if the cables in your street have been upgraded to support these lightning-fast downloads – it’s a brilliant deal. TalkTalk doesn’t ship its own Wi-Fi router to customers who opt for this package, instead, it provides an Eero 6 Pro, which costs £229 when bought from Amazon
Contract Length: 18 months | Upfront cost: FREE
If you’re looking for the ultimate broadband speed at home, this bundle from Community Fibre is sure to blow your hair back. Unfortunately, Community Fibre doesn’t quite have the reach of BT and Virgin Media, but if you live in one of the 23 London boroughs served by its network, it offers next-generation speeds for significantly less than those more established rivals. The first 6 months of your new contract cost nothing. When your bills do start in 2022, you’ll be charged £37.50 a month
Contract Length: 24 months | Upfront cost: FREE
Almost 14 million Virgin Media customers nationwide can access the company’s fastest broadband speeds – more than 1,000Mbps. That’s fast enough to download a two-hour blockbuster film in crisp HD from Netflix in under 100 seconds. Woah. Unfortunately, those speeds come at a cost – but will be essential for busy households or home-workers who are always in video calls!
Contract Length: 18 months | Upfront cost: £35
