If you are a current broadband customer you need to use the Connect app to perform the Home Scan in the area where the signal is low(est)
If the download speed is less than 20 Mbps in every room then you can order a wifi pod. They are free if you are on the Gig1 package, or Ultimate Oomph, or on a Volt bundle, however if you are on any other package then they are £8 a month.

Yes, but only if you’re not getting download speeds of at least 20Mbps in every room.
Our home scan feature will guide you from room to room to carry out WiFi speed tests. If it finds a potential signal-less spot, it’ll test our broadband speed to the WiFi Hub to make sure there isn’t a problem with your network. If everything’s okay with the Hub, the app will take you through to order a WiFi Pod to help boost your WiFi connection.
You can also call 150 from a VM landline or mobile, or 0345 454 1111 from any other phone to order a pod (they will only send out one at a time, and there must be an interval of at least one week before a second order will be accepted) Call around 8am if possible when lines first open and are least busy.
The M350 broadband is a 24 month contract, only available to new customers. It's £15 a month for the first 6 months, and then £30 per month for the remainder of the contract.
TV equipment or any WiFi connected device are not suitable for performing reliable speed tests.
We have a Sony Bluray player it connects at over 250Mb/s on 5Ghz WiFi but it always posts a 23Mb/s Netflix speed test,
but it works perfectly this is because Netflix in 1080p only requires 5Mb/s.
Solve your existing WiFi connectivity issues first - upgrading the broadband package does not fix WiFi issues.

The test may reveal the Hub has a lot more speed to offer - if only your device can make use of it.
Hi Dexder1, thanks for message and welcome to the forums.
I have looked into this for you and can see that you had an engineer appointment how did it go?
Are you still having issues with the service? ^Chris.
