Intelligent wifi pod

I contacted technical support way back in February as the wifi upstairs (in 2 rooms in particular) was weak and occasionally drops out.  I was told an intelligent Wi-Fi pod would sort this, but none were available.  I signed up for email notification for when they were back available, but have heard nothing.

Asked the question via Twitter on numerous occasions since then and was finally told yesterday that they were back, but I had to phone up.

There lies the problem - I don't want to phone up as I haven't got several hours to go through all the various menus to try to speak to a person. I don't need test signals sent - we already know what the issue is, all I want is to be able (after 6 months!) to have someone send me an I intelligent Wi-Fi pod.

Is there an easy way to do this?

Re: Intelligent wifi pod

Unless you are getting it for free it would be better and cheaper in the long run to buy your own mesh system. Google Deco mesh systems as an example.

Re: Intelligent wifi pod

When I spoke with Virgin Media back in February, they said it would be free, just that they didn't have any.

Re: Intelligent wifi pod

A Pod is free for customers on 1GB or Ultimate Oomph packages. Otherwise it is £5/month.

They are in short supply ATM and there is a "waiting list". If you want a pod call in and get on the waiting list. Or get your own equipment from Amazon next day.
