Getting a Wifi Pod

Just joined

We don't live in a huge house but the Wifi doesn't reach to the end room (our bedroom).  I tried the VM connect app which recognised my poor Wifi and recommended a Wifi Pod and directed me to 'Activate WiFi Max' which then sent me into a black hole with an online bot assistant not understanding that all I wanted was a WiFi Pod.  I gave up on this after they moved over to Whatsapp but then asked me the exact same bot questions.  I found a number to call and they said I could either pay £8 a month for the pod, or I could get an O2 sim for £5 and then they'd also upgrade my Hub and send up to 3 free pods.  I don't think I should pay extra to get internet to across my whole (humble) flat but whatever, I thought I'd go for a Sim card I don't need but at least everything else is upgraded.  Eventually, after 40 minutes on the phone I'm told I'm not actually eligible for the Sim I don't want because I haven't paid my first bill yet.  Ye Gods. I want to make a complaint to Virgin that this is all entirely unacceptable.   On their 'Complaints Code of Practice' page they say there's an online complaint form for on their 'Contact Us' page.  There is no online form on their 'Contact Us' page.  I'm posting this message in the vain hope that someone from Virgin actually reads these and will just send me a Wifi Pod, but I appreciate how naïve I'm being.  Thanks for reading.
