No more deadspots

With Whole Home Wi-Fi you can have your favourite TV, films, music and games in any room you wish. Three brilliant discs create a complete Wi-Fi network - which means no more notspots. Even when there's a laptop connected in the kitchen, smartphones upstairs and a tablet in the lounge - they all stay connected, all the time.

The technical bit

Whole Home Wi-Fi is an "intelligent self-configuring wireless network". That means it knows where you and your devices are, and when to switch them from one disc to another to give you the strongest and fastest connection it can. The three discs might be small, but their four built-in 2500 11ac 2.4GHZ and 5GHZ antennas pack a mighty wireless punch.

I have an old house with thick walls and a kitchen extension. Wifi coverage is a problem and the extenders I am currently using struggle with the number of devices that are used by our household. So I have been looking at pulling the trigger on a Mesh system and as Google wifi isn't here yet this looked like a good bet.

The normal price for this is £299.98 but if you scroll down they have a customer return used one for £207.88 - they had two but I just ordered one. OK it only has 6 months warranty but for almost £100 off I don't have a problem with that.

Thanks op. I got the other one

I think most hotukdeals won't understand the concept of mesh networks and how they differ from standard wifi extenders and repeaters. Wifi Mesh networks will be the way forward - Linksys Velop and Negear orbi are also alternatives but for a much more expensive price.

£207 for a product usually costing £300 is a good deal if that is what you are in the market for.

Have been looking at these (mesh networks). No doubt they will come down in price in time but right now this is a great price! Thanks again op!

There is also 8% Quidco bringing the effective price below £200!

Yes, it genuinely seems to have good reviews - certainly in comparison to the BT Smart Hub 6!

Agreed but isn't it easier for me to moan that my internet service is rubbish and blaming the router/provider not understanding that they can't account for every situation. Although its not helped by BT having Ryan Reynolds hanging from a helicopter and still getting wifi signal.

Also gets a good review on this months PC Pro

If this does what it says, then hats off to BT. My router is in the attic and I have had to run a cable to the end of the house to allow for an wireless access point as the back of the house wasn't getting wifi. While I am not complaining the constant switching of the wifi from the access point to the main router gets frustrating. If this does what it says its defo a game changer

I've no issue with my wifi signal but dan imagine those living in older houses might. good I'm formative thread and good discount but if only 2 at lower price hardly constitute a deal, but thanks for contributing to understanding of 'mesh networks' agree could be future of not just home wifi but used wider to connect whole communities rural or even replace 4g

Why did you put your router in the attic?!?

Really got no idea lol! It was installed when Virgin used to be NTL so years ago.

I've got 6 access points and still can't cover half the house, I reckon 4-5 of these kits would do the trick if you can expand them with more identical units?

I have a router and 4 others acting as repeaters and I don't cover the whole house so I'm not expecting miracles but will write up my findings when I have installed and fiddled a little!

Dammit, would have bitten at this price. Went down to 250 at Maplin a few weeks ago for a day or two, now back up to 300 everywhere

If you leave BT, will these work with other providers?

Yes, as long as you have an internet connection you are good to go
