While there is absolutely no doubt that BT holds some of the best broadband deals in the UK, they tend to fall on the slightly costly side of the spectrum. But for those wanting fibre from the well-known ISP without the high prices, there is now another option to go for.

Introducing, Fibre Essential. This is a package that comes in at £26.99, £3 less than the next fibre package up in BT's roster. It offers average speeds of 36Mb which is enough for most smaller households and absolutely perfect for a single occupancy.

While this is now BT's cheapest fibre broadband deal, the additional £3 a month could be a worthwhile investment for BT's other fibre options. You can find out more about this new offer and the other BT broadband deals that are available below (or, indeed, just a little further down this page).

What other options does BT have? 

For a lot of people, the extra £3 a month to jump to Superfast fibre 1 could well be worth the money. You're getting increased speeds, jumping to an average of 50Mb but more importantly, you get BT's rewards.

That means a £40 pre-paid Mastercard and your choice of a free piece of tech. With the offer of an Amazon Echo, a soundbar from well-known speaker company JBL or some smart lights for your home from Hive, the additional £3 a month is a cost worthwhile.
