    Is there any products what can improve your wifi signal without contacting provider, as they will only be after more money, I currently use virgin 50 but it doesn't seem strong enough in other rooms, any info appreciated.

    Well, I would have thought either a wifi repeater, or more likely, a wifi mesh system (though more expensive)

    Yes m8, virgin hub 3, the funny thing is it kept going off 2 weeks ago so they sent engineer to check it out, he changed cable in house checked cable outside wall box, but he altered settings at the cabinet around the corner, funny it hasn't been the same signal since. ??

    Funny someone else posted issues with their hub 3 and told to use this,also powering off for a min then on can clear stored bugs.

    They don't call them the Virgin Superdud for nothing :)

    Many people would use the Hub in modem mode and get a proper router that can be located somewhere central and/or high.
