For outright cheapness, SMARTY (on the Three network) have the lowest straight-up price for unlimited data when you order by 2nd December:

If you want a totally different full-5G speed network, this is a record low price from Vodafone:

Three have this hidden offer for just an extra £1 a month vs SMARTY and you get 5G:

And Virgin (on Vodafone) have snuck in with a low-cost unlimited data plan on the Vodafone network here, available until 1st December:

If you want unlimited data on the O2 network, Tesco's deal here is the cheapest option and is available until 29th November as long as you have a Clubcard:

Otherwise, have a look at each network's latest pricing under the dropdown below:

You can beat it on price (by 5p) and flexibility with this Talkmobile deal on the Vodafone network. It ends 30th November:

There's a nice offer here from retailer ChitterChatter, who sell Vodafone SIMs at often cheaper rates than going direct to Vodafone. They'll send you a £20 Amazon gift card automatically after 45 days with these:

Plusnet Mobile's deal below is on the EE network, you don't have to have their broadband, and it comes with a £40 pre-paid Mastercard. It's got Black Friday written all over it and ends 1st December:

We also like this deal from the retailer ChitterChatter, who sell Vodafone SIMs. It's a long contract but they've thrown in a £20 Amazon gift card to sweeten it:

We've also got this superb hidden offer from Three, which only lasts until 30th November:

If you have BT broadband, this is an historically great price from BT Mobile, even if it is quite a long contract:

These are the best current SIM only plans on each network with 20GB or more data. If they've got a plan with more than 20GB that's still cheaper, we'll include it here:

For a network on EE, order by 1st December to benefit from a £30 Reward Card (pre-paid Mastercard) through the post 45 days after your purchase with Plusnet's already-cheap deal here:

Three have the best deal on a main network with this hidden offer:

For O2, Sky are offering slightly less than the rest but this does come with unlimited Sky TV app streaming data (ends 29th November):

For a network on Vodafone, Talkmobile have an excellent price here on just a 1-month contract, when you order by 30th November:

Coming in a little more expensive but with more data is Three, with this deal that's actually be available quite a while before Black Friday:

If you're not fussed about 5G, you can get a shorter contract with Three's sub-brand SMARTY:

If you're in the market for only a modest amount of data, there are already some really cheap deals out there. We can't really see a big rush from networks to go any cheaper for Black Friday (it's not worth their while).

This hidden 3 months half price deal from Talkmobile is already basically rock bottom:

And ASDA (also Vodafone) have just added an extra 2GB to this SIM in time for Black Friday too:

There's also an extra 1GB of data for your first year with this SMARTY deal (on Three's network) with no contract (order by 30th November):

These are each network's 3GB and up SIM only offers at the moment. If they're offering more data without it costing extra, we'll still include it:

We know it's more data than you're actually looking for but this plan from ASDA Mobile on the Vodafone network beats similar priced deals with less data:

For a SIM on the Three network, SMARTY's deal here is simarly priced and comes with more data than you're looking for so less chance of going over your limits:

Here's the best SIM only plan with 1GB or more on each network at the moment. If they include more without charging more, we'll still include it:

There's basically an offer on a plan to fit anybody's data requirements on Three over the Black Friday period. Use the dropdown here to see them all:

But for us, the standout deal is their 100GB plan here, available until 3rd December:

Or save a couple of pounds if you don't need all that data (ends 30th November):

Even though Three have a 6 months half price offer on their unlimited data SIM with a £50 reward, the effective cost of this per month over 24 months comes out a matter of pence cheaper than this straight-up deal:

Firstly, before Black Friday, ASDA boosted the basic amount of data you get with their plans, which is good. But we're not actually that keen on their headline Black Friday offer:

Get double data (on the already boosted plans) lasting for your first three months. Well if you need 6GB, why would you take a doubled 3GB plan that will be useless to you 3 months later?

Here are the deals nonetheless:

3 months half price on their unlimited data deals too is more useful. We think the only one ordering is their one that delivers 150 Mbps max 5G speeds here:

There's only actually one completely new offer for Black Friday and it's genuinely BT's best ever price for the amount of data:

Otherwise, the main other deals on BT were already live prior to being branded as Black Friday. But they are still also record value for the provider:

Overall, a pretty decent Black Friday for value on BT. But none of the headline-grabbing free gift offers we've seen in previous years.

EE waited until the last minute to order their Black Friday SIMs and they've gone with what we expected. A large data plan at £20 (order by 6th December):

Otherwise, we already had this hidden offer before Black Friday. It's pretty rare to be able to join EE for just £10:

As with previous Black Fridays, giffgaff haven't put any of their SIM only plans on promotion especially for the period. They only ever focus on phone contracts. And it's the same again this year.

They've only recently improved their Golden Goodybags and they rarely make more than a couple of changes to their range of SIM plans in the entire year, so it's no suprise that's it.

Don't forget, if you join giffgaff via our invite page here, you'll get £5 free credit when you first top up with £10 or buy a Goodybag for £10 or more.

iD's plans are always among the UK's cheapest. And they've done a great job on their 1-month deals for Black Friday. Here are the highlights:

As yet, we're unsure when these deals end.

O2 have done exactly what we expected for Black Friday. They've published two big data deals, on long contracts around the £20 mark:

Both deals end 9th December. We have seen the same deals at other times this year.

We're probably a bit underwhelmed at Sky's SIM only deals for Black Friday. They've stuck with similar prices to the last two years' sales with these deals (order by 29th November):

Or there's a little upgrade here too if you need a bit more data:

We had hoped they'd boost this plan to 3GB but it wasn't to be:

Where to start with SMARTY? They've basically got an offer on every one of their plans (most of them hidden and only available with comparison sites like us)

The lower price lasts for your first 12 months but there's no contract - so you're free to leave any time. It beats SMARTY's main headline offer below, which is still worth considering as it doesn't go up in price (ends 6th December):

Or for much smaller users, we've also got this hidden deal with more data than ever for such a low price (order by 30th November):

All in all, a great set of offers. We think that's it now from SMARTY. There shouldn't be any new deals come along in the meantime.

Order by 30th November on Talkmobile for some serious value on their 1-month SIMs. This 100GB deal offers an eye-opening amount of data for the money:

This is absurd value too:

And so is this:

That's definitely it for deals now on Talkmobile, so there's no need to wait.

In previous years, Talkmobile have had a habit of releasing a last minute Black Friday offer on top of these, lasting a short while only. There might not be any harm in waiting and seeing.

Tesco's headline Black Friday offer is this unlimited data plan for Clubcard Holders only, which saves you £120 over the course of two years vs the non-Clubcard price:

It's available until 29th November and is a genuine offer. It's beatable on price elsewhere but it is the best-price unlimited data plan on a network using O2.

And then there's this, which isn't marked out specifically as a Black Friday offer but has just been released for sale to anyone, whether you have a Clubcard or not:

Virgin Mobile are always in the mix during Black Friday. They've got a really well priced unlimited data plan here. You'd have to go back years to the day's of 3G-only to get it so cheap:

And at the opposite end of data usage, this is a record price for 5GB (you could get it on 24-month plan before this but this is a 12-month deal):

Both deals are only here until 1st December.

The best deal direct from Vodafone is undoubtedly this Unlimited Max plan, which is at a record low price and gives you Vodafone's top 5G speeds:

But if you shop around, you can actually order Vodafone SIMs from quite a few different retailers with better offers than going direct. ChitterChatter have some excellent prices with Amazon gift cards included:

If you shop around with our comparison tool, you'll probably be able to get a decent amount of automatic cashback if you join Vodafone via a third party retailer like mobiles.co.uk or buymobiles.net.

And if you're willing to skip having 5G and no roaming whatsoever, we have a feeling Vodafone will add some really strong pricing to their Basics range of plans.

VOXI's headline Black Friday offer is this 50GB plan, which is only available until 29th November:

It's the cheapest way to get on the Vodafone network with a 1-month plan at the moment. Or there's a £5 upgrade to get double the amount of data:

We'd note neither of the above come with VOXI's Endless Video benefit, despite coming with more data than ones that do.

They've also boosted their entry-level plan here (but not flagged specifically as a Black Friday offer):

There's reductions and data boosts on their other plans too. See under the dropdown for a full list:

We think that's it for offers on VOXI, so if you've been waiting it out to see what comes for Black Friday, we're confident you're safe to order. They don't do rapid changes.
