More cable required

Hello Virgin Family.

Had an installation of my new broadband service a couple days ago (speed up to 200), but after a few days realised that the speed is good (as promised) in living room and room above loving room, but other half of the house is suffering from very poor signal. So need to get more cable to move the Hub 3.0 to the middle of the house. As far I know, this type of cable isn't possible to buy online. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

Re: More cable required

VM's cabling forms part of their network and you'll need a VM engineer visit to amend or extend this. Normally there's a £25 charge for such visits (which is of itself extremely reasonable), but you may get this waived if it's considered part of the install.

You may want to look at alternative WiFi-solutions though, or using your own router. I'll ping @jbrennand who's normally quite good with this sort of thing.

Re: More cable required

Yes.... the alternatives to moving the Hub, are to purchase your own router and wireless equipment e.g. a Mesh.... or add additional wireless access points.

Then, any of these would have to connect to the Hub by ethernet cables.
