If you've been meaning to finally take the plunge into the world of smart home assistants, then John Lewis Broadband may have just made your mind up for you. Until midnight on February 27, John Lewis is giving away a free Google Home smart speaker to every new broadband customer.
With prices starting at only £22.50 per month and with a zero activation fee, John Lewis is one of the cheapest internet providers on the market. With the Google Home's RRP of £129, that makes the effective price of John Lewis Broadband an incredible £141 for the year!
If fibre optic broadband is available where you live and you like the idea of the extra speed, you'll be pleased to hear that the free Google Home promotion is available with John Lewis Broadband's 38Mb and 76Mb packages, too.
The John Lewis Broadband and free Google Home deal in full:
John Lewis Unlimited Broadband + Google Home | 12 months | Up to 17Mb | Weekend and Evening calls | FREE upfront | £22.50pm
John Lewis isn't usually the first name we associate with the word 'cheap', but its standard 17Mb internet is very affordable. Especially with the free Google Home offer and included weekend and evening calls to UK landlines, which can be extended to 24/7 for an extra fiver a month.
John Lewis Unlimited Fibre Extra + Google Home | 12 months | Up to 38Mb | Weekend and Evening calls | FREE upfront | £36.50pm
Frankly, Vodafone's ridiculous £20pm fibre broadband deal has the competition licked when it comes to 38Mb speed. But crank things up to 76Mb and John Lewis is among the front runners again. This is the broadband speed to go for if you stream 4K content or have multiple devices all using the internet at once.
How do I claim my Google Home?
John Lewis says that your new Google Home device will be delivered within 30 days of activation of your service. And that there's only one per customer.
In TechRadar's full review of the Google Home, we described it as "Both wildly intelligent and supremely versatile in the ways in which it can be used...it has real potential to one day be the smart home command center Google wants it to be."
Existing John Lewis Broadband customers
John Lewis confirms on its website that this is for new customers only, so if you went and signed up for one of its broadband deals last week then you're out of luck. If you're still hellbent on getting hold of the search engine giant's smart home assistant though, then be sure to head to our best Google Home and Google Home Mini prices and deals page.
