Hi. Hope someone can help.
recently had virgin broadband volt installed but am experiencing slow broadband in the top bedroom of my 3 story town house. I’ve ran tests and have varying speeds of between 30mbs 50mbs in that bedroom. I was eligible for booster pods if needed but am unsure how to order these. Could anyone please advise
The pods are free on the Gig1 package, Ultimate Oomph, or any Volt bundle, however if you are on any other package then they are £8 a month.
You need to perform the Home Scan using the Connect app in the area where the signal is low(est) or as near to there as possible. The 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 your 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.
How to perform the scan and order the wifi pods when using the Connect app.
If that doesn't work you can call 0800 064 3850 to order the first one
VM will only send out one at a time, and there must be at least 7 days before ordering each one. It's up to three in total depending upon coverage.
