Wifi using Hub3

My techi son staying during lockdown has found that in the same room as my hub3, speeds were 83mbps.

But go elsewhere, it drops. Significantly. 

How can I boost the signal so he can work upstairs and get good speed?

Re: Wifi using Hub3

Get a better router or mesh system and put the hub into modem mode.

Re: Wifi using Hub3

Get your own better quality wireless equipment.

VM will offer a booster - if its free its worth a try - if they want to charge you £3/mo it isn't.

Are you sure its just a wifi issue - if you connect via ethernet cable are speeds better and connections stable ?
