wifi dead spot - booster ?

I have a couple of smart plugs that keep losing connection due to a wifi dead spot. I have tried using the virginmedia connect app but it keeps asking me to switch on data which I do, but it still keeps asking me to do it, and the action cannot be completed. How do I go about ordering a booster as I am unable to contact virginmedia through the website. If I move my smart plugs nearer the hub they work fine

Boosters are little more than toys and are not worth the £3/month they will be charging you (if you dont have a Hub4 that is). There are far better solutions to improving your wifi for the same amount as the rental fee.
