Get connected and stay connected anywhere in your home

When it comes to wireless networking, your Virgin Media Hub is one souped-up piece of kit. But wireless technology isn’t perfect, so there might still be some places in your home that it just can’t reach or give you the speeds you crave.

First try these handy hints for getting the best wireless signal, and then think about adding a Powerline kit to your network.

Behold the power of Powerline

Powerline kits use your home's electrical wiring to connect devices. Just hook up an adapter to your Virgin Media Hub to help you get a better WiFi signal in any room with a working socket. We have three different kits to choose from, depending on what you’re after, and they’re available from just £35 plus £7 p&p.

Powerline in action

Remember the speeds you can achieve with your Powerline will only ever be as fast as your broadband speed, and can depend on the quality of the electrical wiring in your home.
