Extra virgin media wall socket

Hey,

I have two virgin media wall sockets in the house I moved into. Can I get a second hub or WiFi router plugged in there or would this affect the WiFi/internet?

 

Thanks

No you can't and no it wouldn't. One Hub only. If you want to improve WiFi coverage consider, mesh, wifi boosters, or more usually putting the Hub into modem mode and running a separate more powerful router in tandem with the Hub and connected to it. The second socket would be useful if you ever wanted multi-room TV.

Hello

I am afraid that you can have only one hub per premise. There is no 3rd party devices that are allowed to be plugged into the VM cable only VM equipment
