Find out how you can improve your WiFi signal in your home by ordering a WiFi Booster at the touch of a button

Intelligent WiFi from Virgin Media

Finding a reliable WiFi signal anywhere in your home should be simple. It should be as effortless as booking tickets to the cinema online or clicking “attending” on a Facebook invite for an event you have no intention of taking part in. And thanks to Virgin Media’s Intelligent WiFi powered by the mighty Hub 3, it really is that easy.


But what if you can’t get a signal in part of your home? Well, you might have a WiFi blackspot. Want to be sure? Download the Virgin Media Connect app to scan the area to discover what’s getting in the way of your WiFi and chat with an agent about any issues.

Still having problems? You might need an intelligent WiFi Booster to give your signal, well, a boost. Using your home’s electrical wiring, these plug-in pals can help you tackle your WiFi niggles, so you can enjoy glorious internet all around your home.


Watch the video below to find out how, and then read on for more.



As explained in the video, all you need to do to get your hands on an intelligent WiFi Booster is use the Connect app home scan feature. If it reveals you have a WiFi blackspot, you’ll be able to order your Booster straight in the app.


And that’s not all – if you’re a Virgin Fibre customer with Maxit TV, you can get an intelligent WiFi Booster to use at no extra cost. WiFi Boosters cost £3 extra per month for all other broadband customers who need one.


So, what are you waiting for? Give your blackspot the heave-ho.
