With so many discounts fighting for your attention, it would be easy to miss that you can also get great deals from your area's internet service providers. ISPs probably aren't top of mind right now, but they should be: the holiday season is a surprisingly good time to score a deal on home internet service. After all, how can you take full advantage of all the great smart home devices you just bought if your internet connection is lousy? 

What are the top holiday broadband deals?

EarthLink CEO Glenn Goad told CNET that the holiday season is a "great time for promotions, offers and incentives." Below, we recommend the best internet deals on high-quality broadband providers.

One little disclaimer for our ISP reviews that bears repeating: A provider may offer a seemingly perfect plan for your household, but commonly, that ISP isn't available at your address. It can be frustrating, but your choices may soon grow with the expansion of satellite internet service and 5G home internet options.

Best holiday broadband deals FAQs

When was Black Friday and Cyber Monday this year?

Black Friday was on Nov. 24; Cyber Monday followed on Nov. 27. While good internet deals were available during that time, you can still get some decent deals right now. Many providers keep their offers going into December.

What is Cyber 5?

During the holiday sales season, you may hear the term "Cyber 5," which refers to the five-day sales frenzy between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday.

Can I save big on my internet service during the holidays?

Potentially, yes. Slashed product prices predominantly drive Black Friday and holiday sales, but internet service providers are increasingly getting in on the action. In some cases, ISPs offer reduced monthly fees or promise lucrative add-ons, like free streaming services or gift cards.
