Virgin Media has announced a new series of WiFi updates that allow your network to automatically improve itself.

The company says that all its customers with a Hub 3 router will have "a smart cloud-based, adaptive system that is continuously evolving and ingeniously tackles many of the problems that can hold people back from getting the best performance from their WiFi."
To take advantage of the new feature, customers simply have to download Virgin Media’s free new app Connect, which acts as a control panel for the intelligent WiFi system. Connect will then start scanning the whole house to look for black or weak spots. If it can fix them, it will. In rare instances, customers may need to order a WiFi booster, which is free for customers with Full House or VIP status.
Richard Sinclair MBE, Executive Director of Connectivity at Virgin Media, said: "Intelligent WiFi will allow our customers to make the most of their broadband while also helping to easily overcome any connectivity conundrums around the home. With families using more devices than ever before, it’s vital they can all be online whenever needed.
Whether it’s streaming UHD movies on Netflix, playing the latest games online or video conferencing, Intelligent WiFi has your back."
