What is wireless broadband?

Put simply, wireless broadband is an internet connection that doesn’t require you to physically plug your device into a network. Rather, it uses a wireless router (or Hub) to send wireless signals throughout your home, which are then picked up by your devices.

Wireless broadband deals can vary when it comes to speed and reliability, which is why it’s important to choose a deal that best suits you and your needs. At Virgin Media, all of our best WiFi deals come with our mighty Hubs, included at no extra cost. Delivering fast and reliable WiFi straight into your home, with Intelligent WiFi technology that adapts to your home and automatically sorts WiFi issues for you.

What’s the difference between WiFi and broadband?

Wireless Fidelity (WiFi) is the technology that allows us to access broadband internet. Whilst broadband itself refers to the cables that deliver an internet connection to your router. The router then takes the internet data and converts it to a radio signal, providing our devices with a wireless network, which allows us to access the internet.

How does a wireless broadband router work?

The router works by converting broadband internet data into wireless signal and sending this via radio waves to your devices. This gives laptops, phones, games consoles and other wireless-enabled gadgets, like smart TVs, a seamless connection to the internet and allows multiple devices to be online, at the same time.

Our broadband deals will provide you with a Virgin Media wireless router, called a Hub, that adapts to your home using built-in Intelligent WiFi technology. Learn more about our three WiFi Hubs below, or visit our Hub page for in-depth details and a summary of their tech specs.

Is wireless internet better than wired?

Wireless broadband offers the convenience of accessing the internet from any location in your home or on any device, providing more flexibility and mobility compared to a wired connection.

A wired connection, on the other hand, relies on a physical connection between your device and the router. Whilst this can provide faster speeds and high connectivity, a wired connection restricts users’ movements.

If you find you’re suffering from slower internet speeds in your home, it might be worth investing in a WiFi extender or booster. At Virgin Media, these are known as our WiFi Pods, part of our superstrong WiFi guarantee – promising download speeds of at least 30Mbps in every room, or £100 bill credit. Available at no extra cost for Gig1 Fibre Broadband and Volt customers.
