In the last few years, BT have switched their main focus from phones to WiFi routers. Their latest offering, the BT Whole Home WiFi System, shows why they are still the king of the market. By utilizing the power of mesh networking, you can enjoy superfast internet speeds throughout your entire home, without any blackspots. You’re free to stream Netflix in the living room, tune into internet radio in the kitchen, and play online games in the bedroom- all with perfect connectivity!
Mesh WiFi is the future
Mesh WiFi means you’ll always get the fastest possible connection, across your entire home. Using a process called band steering, the network automatically links your device to the unit with the best connection speed. Unlike traditional extenders, each mesh WiFi unit has the same powerful signal strength as a standard router. Wherever you go, you’ll get a strong, seamless connection that never drops out. It’s the ideal option for busy homes with plenty of devices online at once, and is also a top pick for larger properties where a regular router just won’t cut it.
Setup takes just minutes
Although the BT Whole Home WiFi system uses some powerful tech, setup is a breeze. With the accompanying app, you’ll be walked through the whole process. Each unit only takes a couple of minutes to set up, so you should be up and running in no time. You can even name each disc as you go along, to make things easier to manage further down the line. By default, the units all come with a metal stand attached, but you can remove this to allow for wall-mounting if you prefer. A nice extra touch is the presence of a removable card with the network name and password on it. This saves you from having to check the unit itself every time you want to connect a new device- you can just keep the card handy instead.
Advanced parental controls
The BT app lets you do more than just set up your mesh network. It also gives you full control over who can access what, making it great for parental control. For instance, you can group your kids’ tablets together, and then set times when the internet is strictly off-limits. Whether you want to enjoy family mealtimes without everyone glued to their phones, or stop the kids from staying up past their bedtime, everything you need is right at your fingertips. You can even set up guest WiFi networks, so that visitors can use the internet without having access to your own devices.
The BT Whole Home WiFi System comes complete with its very own built-in antivirus protection. That means your network will always be kept safe from hackers, and you can continue to do all the things you love online with complete security. The firmware will automatically update itself, too, so once the system is up and running, you’re all set!
