Fast, strong WiFi signal - Each disc acts as a WiFi hub, so that you can get reliable WiFi access on every device no matter where you are in your home. And because the
system is expandable, you can easily add more discs as you need them.Using the latest security standards and one-touch software updates, the BT Mini Whole Home WiFi System keeps you safe from external interference – for great peace of mind.

Do I need a buy large house to use them?
Heat added. Just a heads up, in case this will work for anyone else: A couple of days ago I contacted BT via 'chat online', simply mentioned that my home wifi signal was poor [only a short way away from router a lot of the time] and they immediately offered to send us a twin pack of Whole Home Discs - FOC and at no delivery cost to ourselves. Arrived today.

These are brilliant. I've just added them to my home. Wifi now full strength throughout house and at the end of the garden! Really simple to install. The setup app worked well.
Tip, if you don't want to spend a long time reconnecting all your devices to your new WiFi network I suggest to turn off your old WiFi signal from your home hub/routers admin settings and use the Whole Home WiFi app to change your new network's Ssid and password to your old network ones. Your devices should then auto connect to your new WiFi without them noticing the difference

Hi, they can only be added to other Mini Whole Home discs, not the original. So you could buy 2 x twin pack to get a 4-disc setup for £140

It due to them guaranteeing a Wi-Fi signal throughout your home. I believe it’s part of your contract but the only loan items.

Ah I see, thank you. Had only heard Sky advertising the guarantee of wifi at home. To be honest I was just so shocked that this experience with BT was actually helpful and in no way stressful, that I didn't want to spoil it by asking too many questions!
if I wanted to use these in the garden to improve wi-fi coverage could I, or could I point one towards the garen to improve coverage out there?

You could place one of the discs on the window sill near the garden. And it would extend the Wi-Fi into the garden.

You just need to make sure that the distance between the window sill disc and first disc (connected to router) has a good backhaul connection.
Thanks

Thanks for the information
Are these compatible with the standard ones.
This looks to be a great price, but from reading a review it appears they create their own network. So you need one of them to plug directly into your router (on which you need to disable the wifi). This essentially means you're only actually getting one unit to place elsewhere and extend your network.

Not saying it's a bad deal, but the triple pack makes way more sense.
Am I right in thinking the mini units are less powerful that the normal size units. AC1200 vs AC2600

Hi, unfortunately not, they they can only be used with additional discs from the BT Mini Whole Home Wi-Fi range

Correct, upto ~300Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and ~866Mbps on the and 5GHz using a 2x2 antenna configuration.

It's worth noting that the original (AC2600) uses a 4x4 antenna configuration, to get the full benefits of the extra performance the connected device would also need a 4x4 antenna. Not all smartphones will have 4x4.

Or 2 x twin packs
Looks good Chanchi! Not everyone lives in a property where a three piece mesh network is needed etc, so for this price, this will suit quite a lot of people who want less dropouts or slightly improved range!
Bring on the discount on the Premiums! (when they are released...)

Bizarre. Thought extenders were for wired connection boosting? Thus, not very helpful for wifi issues!
They’re free with BT broadband

You might be thinking of BT Complete Wi-Fi disc (black ones), which is part of the BT Plus subscription, so not completely free.
Cracking deal op, many thanks. Ordered two pairs and managed to get a further £13 off using a rewardgateway thing from work where you can buy instant curry's vouchers and save 8%. Quidco should add a further 5% so 4 discs for £121.78 (assuming my maths are correct).

Yes each disc has its own power supply. Plug 1 disc into your BT home hub or router ethernet port and wait for the blue light. Use app to name it. Use app to find a spot with good signal for the next disc and plug that in there. Wait for the blue light again and so on. I have 1 disc showing a average signal strength (orange light) but it's still working well.
Cold. Would hate to have anything to do with BT in my house

Never heard of the mini before.

IMO been the best ISP I’ve ever had (and I’ve had a lot!!!!) but everyone has their own opinions. Bit like bum holes.
Are these just powerline adapters? Because if so, there are much cheaper options available

No they create a wifi "mesh" around the house so you don't need to connect to individual adapters, as you do with the powerline adapters. They are really the next generation on from the powerline.

So they cover everything between the two adapters rather than each offering their own radius of coverage?
Sort of, but they create a mesh or blanket of WiFi coverage covering the whole area of the house they cover, I guess like 4G etc does outside of the house, so once your device logs into the WiFi it stays log in until you leave the area of the house the discs cover.
