  • What is a Booster?

Our intelligent boosters use your home’s internal electrical wiring to help connect your devices to the Hub from any room with a working socket, perfect for places where your existing home network won’t reach.

There are two types of Boosters we provide, WiFi and Wired.

WiFi Booster:  These connect your devices using wireless technology (our WiFi Boosters also include Ethernet connections) they can extend your wireless network and get rid of blackspots.

Wired Booster:  These connect straight to your devices using network cables and allow you to extend your network for your wired devices, for instance for a new Virgin TV V6 box.
