Multiple connection points

Hello, I'm about to have Virgin Media installed. 

Would it be possible to ask the installers to have multiple points in the house? For example the main one where the TV and router are in the living room, but also in the bedrooms so that I could just have ethernet into the office computers?

Thanks!

Re: Multiple connection points

The installer will not install an Ethernet infrastructure for you.

The install will only cover the number of co-ax points required by the number of devices you are having installed.

Re: Multiple connection points

Hi @maxmaxmax thanks for your reply here in the Community - great to hear you're joining us!

Unfortunately, there will only be one working access point within the house so it's not possible to get a direct ethernet connection to the Hub in multiple areas of the house.

However, we do have Intelligent Wifi Pods which have ethernet ports in, so you can connect a device that isn't in the same room as the Hub via ethernet and although you may not likely get the speeds you'd get directly to your Hub, you'd still benefit from a more stable connection than wirelessly.

If you are on a Volt bundle, the Intelligent Wifi Pods are free of charge but otherwise, they are £5 per month - please let me know if you are interested in these and I'll be able to help you further!

Many thanks
