Virgin Media is set to revolutionise in-home connectivity for millions of customers with its new Intelligent WiFi.
Thanks to a series of updates, customers will be able to access the UK’s fastest widely available broadband speeds in more areas of their homes. Customers with a Hub 3 router have already received the upgrade, which comprises a smart cloud-based, adaptive system that evolves and tackles the problems people often have with getting the best performance from their WiFi.
With Intelligent WiFi, Virgin Media customers could see speeds improving by up to three times without the aid of a booster. This means that regardless of the type of property, or the number of people living there, customers can make the most of their ultrafast connectivity, whether they’re using it to stream 4K programming, gaming online or simply doing their weekly shop.
Customers will be able to test the strength of their signal in different parts of their homes using the new Connect app from Virgin Media. The app will also help them to identify any blackspots in the home, manage devices that are connected and pause those devices, which is handy for when children are using the internet when they should be sleeping. Customers can also access support and help through the app to resolve any problems.
“Delivering ultrafast broadband to help make Britain faster is what we do best at Virgin Media, but making sure this translates into reliable in-home connectivity is just as important,” Richard Sinclair, executive director of connectivity at Virgin Media, said. “Intelligent WiFi will allow our customers to make the most of their broadband while also helping to easily overcome any connectivity conundrums around the home. With families using more devices than ever before, it’s vital they can all be online whenever needed. Whether it’s streaming UHD movies on Netflix, playing the latest games online or video conferencing, Intelligent WiFi has your back.”
Intelligent WiFi will be offered as standard to all Virgin Media customers, head to the Virgin Media website to find out more.
