By Virgin Media

Why stumble when you can soar? We want you to enjoy speedy, reliable WiFi in your home. And if you don’t, you get money back – that’s our WiFi guarantee.


Our superfast WiFi guarantee (backed up by our WiFi Pods if needed) is included at no extra cost with our Gigabit Fibre Broadband and Volt packages. You can also add WiFi Max to our M50 to M500 Fibre Broadband packs without Volt for £8 a month. We’ll complete our checks and if you don’t achieve 30Mbps in every room, then we will send you your first WiFi Pod. Whether you’re upstairs or downstairs, our WiFi Pods adapt to how and when you use your WiFi, and automatically tackle issues before you need to.


Our WiFi Pods adapt to how and when you WiFi, and automatically tackle issues before you need to. With our free Virgin Media Connect app, you can check your speeds to see if you need a WiFi Pod, keep track of all your connected devices and loads more.

Whether you’re streaming, video calling or downloading, Virgin Media’s fantastic connectivity, reliability and speed make it so easy you’ll feel like you’re soaring elegantly through the air…


Top of the pods

WiFi Max comes with up to three signal-boosting WiFi Pods (if needed), which use advanced mesh WiFi tech to create an extended WiFi network that covers even the hard-to-reach spots. These genius little gadgets can help give you even more reliable browsing, gaming and show-streaming power, right where you need it. Just plug in to play on.


Stay connected with problem-sorting Intelligent WiFi

Thanks to Intelligent WiFi technology, our Hub and Pods learn how, where and when you use your WiFi. So, you can relax while your WiFi network automatically looks after itself – and solves many common issues before you even notice. Perfect when you pile on the gadgets. Even nicer when Nan’s videocalling.


Manage devices and check your WiFi speeds with our Connect app

Grab our free Virgin Media Connect app for your compatible mobile or tablet. It makes WiFi-ing much simpler and puts you in control. You can check WiFi speeds to your Hub and devices, manage all your WiFi Pods, tackle common WiFi hiccups, get expert help and loads more, all in one place. You can also check out how all your WiFi Pods are doing – see their signal strength, see which devices are connected to each one, get troubleshooting tips, rename them and much more.


If you need a second or third WiFi Pod, you can contact our customer service team and we’ll figure out where you need better WiFi signal and if an extra mesh WiFi Pod will help.
