BT Launches Whole Home Wi-Fi to Eliminate Signal Dead Spots

BT has launched Whole Home Wi-Fi, a new advanced system which it calls the “first of its kind in the UK”, and gives customers a complete wi-fi network covering every room in their home.

The system consists of three 165mm repeater discs of a sleek contemporary design that are placed around the home, each with four powerful dual-band antennas, to give the strongest wi-fi coverage.

Whole Home Wi-Fi gives complete coverage and eliminates “dead spots” – where previously there was no signal. This intelligent self-configuring wireless network cleverly switches the user to the fastest, strongest and most reliable wi-fi signal when they move from room to room. It enables the family to enjoy all of their favourite programmes, music, games and films on multiple devices in every room. Users can even make a video call or stream a video as they walk around the home.

Whole Home Wi-Fi comes with an app that gives customers complete control over the system. A simple step-by-step guide helps the user find the best location for each disc to optimise wi-fi coverage throughout the home.

The BT Whole Home Wi-Fi system is available now for £299.99.
