It's not the biggest name around, but this deal from John Lewis Broadband gets you 66Mbits/sec for just £28/mth
John Lewis might not be the first name that springs to mind when you think about cost-effective broadband deals, but the company offers a trio of plans that are up there with the best. The pick of the bunch gets you an average download speed of 66Mbits/sec for just £28/mth on a one-year contract, with nothing to pay upfront. That’s more than enough bandwidth for a bevy of devices to stream, browse and game at the same time.
The clincher is that John Lewis Broadband is operated by Plusnet, which happens to be our favourite provider overall. In fact, it made mincemeat of the opposition in this year’s Expert Reviews Best Broadband Awards and was the recipient of five stars out of five in our most recent review.
Add in the fact that you’re only tied down for a year and you’ve got a stellar broadband deal from a name that’s been a fixture in British life since 1864.
While we haven’t published a dedicated review of John Lewis Broadband’s service, we couldn’t find enough good things to say about its parent network Plusnet. In our latest review, we garlanded it with five stars out of five and a coveted Best Buy award, highlighting its exceptional value for money, class-leading customer service and high speeds. And you agreed, voting it the overall winner in our Best Broadband Awards 2022.
If your internet needs are more modest, John Lewis Broadband has a couple of other attention-grabbing plans: for just £20.50/mth, you can scoop an average download speed of 10Mbits/sec for a year, while £25/mth will get you 36Mbits/sec. To put that in perspective, you’d have to pay £29/mth to get 36Mbits/sec from BT on a two-year deal.
The 66Mbits/sec broadband deal at the top of the page still represents the best value for money, though – especially if you like the flexibility of being able to shop around after a year.
