Ah, the halcyon days of Black Friday 2016. The ridiculous reductions, the devilish discounts, the vundabar voucher codes – and the fights over cheap TVs in the aisles of Asda. Such vibrant times.
BT is harking back to the Black Friday mania by reintroducing a monthly tariff for its Infinity fibre broadband not seen since November 2016. For only £27.99 a month you can get 52Mb Infinity Broadband – that's a brilliant tariff for such fast internet.
We've got further details on this BT broadband deal below. We'll tell you more about the offer, how the speeds compare to that of other fibre broadband providers and how to get your hands on a £75 BT Reward Card.
BT Infinity 1 fibre broadband for £27.99pm
BT Unlimited Infinity 1 | 12 months | Up to 52Mb | Line rental inc. | No TV | £59.99 upfront | £27.99pm
It's the second coming of BT's Black Friday broadband tariff. Anything under £30pm for internet this fast is worth shouting about. BT's free activation promotion has now come to an end, so you do have to pay £60 at the outset (which also includes router delivery costs). But there's another treat in it for you – a £75 Reward Card, more on which below. Total cost of 12 months £395.87

Fibre broadband speeds compared
The entry-level speed from most broadband companies – including Sky broadband, TalkTalk and Plusnet – is up to 38Mb, which equates to download speeds of 4.75MB per second. That's pretty fast, and far quicker than 17Mb ADSL speeds.
But BT's opening gambit on fibre is 52Mb, which cranks things up to a blistering 6MB per second. So it may be a tad more expensive than those other providers, but if you have a large household of people all wanting to stream, download and game at the same time, then BT's extra speed is a massive bonus.
If you're concerned that you still won't have enough speed, then Virgin Media fibre broadband kicks off at an astonishing 100Mb. But you'll have to pay for it – prices start at £32 per month.
What is a BT Reward Card?
As a little sweetener, BT broadband sends out a Reward Card to anybody that signs up for one of its internet packages. We've seen it for as much as £150 on some rare occasions, but it's currently at £75 for Infinity 1. Make sure that you claim your Reward Card within three months of grabbing the deal, otherwise you'll lose out on all that cash.
It's a pre-paid Mastercard that can be used anywhere that accepts those. So in excess of a million shops, cafes and restaurants around the world. It's an old-fashioned chip and pin card, rather than contactless.
