VM Email "We have upgraded your WiFi at no extra cost"

I just got an email with the above heading. It says

We’ve built on the original Intelligent WiFi tech to make sure your gadgets are on the right frequency they need to do their thing. The new update looks at your WiFi use over the past few days at different times of the day to make sure everything’s in tip-top shape. This means a faster and even more reliable WiFi connection, especially if your devices move around a lot.

 

Does anyone have a technical explanation of what they have done please?

I've recently bought BT Mesh stuff to improve my connectivity around the house but maybe it is happening anyway with the hub.

I got that today as well; I think it has something to do with Intelligent WiFi Plus.

I haven't noticed any difference TBH, but then again my main devices are wired.

Re: VM Email "We have upgraded your WiFi at no extra cost"

Ah OK, thanks - I hadn't read about that and I now have. I don't have the top tier internet so Intelligent WiFi Plus won't apply to me. I wouldn't ever have paid for these on a monthly basis anyway.

So it looks like just the "enhanced channel optimisation to manage bandwidth and adaptive band steering to ensure devices are on the right frequency." which I will benefit from. I doubt it will change my life somehow! 

Thanks for the steer.

...so basically a 'fluff' email (as some of the SuperUsers on here call it!!!) 

Nothing changes to my connection - still loads of spikes everywhere....!!!
