Tom Newell, product manager at Box, explains how whole home Wi-Fi kits can eliminate blackspots and blanket your home in Wi-Fi.

Life is full of little irritants and one of the most annoying things about modern living must be Wi-Fi blackspots in the home.

Most homes have areas where the Wi-Fi just doesn't reach meaning smartphones, smart TVs, laptops or other connected devices which rely on Wi-Fi just won't work.

But, fortunately, this is one nuisance which can be resolved very easily.

At Box we stock a range of whole home Wi-Fi solutions from leading manufactures which eliminate these dead zones. Forget holding your phone at arm's length for one bar of internet - with these beauties you'll be gaming at the end of the garden.

Until recently, the best way to increase internet coverage was by buying a Wi-Fi range extender or Powerline. In some properties, these worked just fine, but in others there were still blackspots. These technologies do also have drawbacks, the main one being unable to roam around the home wire free on a single network.

With the whole home systems, several nodes are dotted around the property to ensure a mesh of fast and stable Wi-Fi. The bigger the house the more nodes you will need. Most whole home Wi-Fi kits comes in packs of two or three currently, but single add-on nodes can also be purchased.

All nodes transmit the Wi-Fi signal and have a single password, allowing you to seamlessly switch from node to node as you move around the home. You'll always be connected to the strongest Wi-Fi signal.

Box has many options depending on the size of your home and budget. Below we pick out just a few of the many options we stock for next day delivery.

We have the budget friendly Tenda Nova MW3 Whole Home Wi-FiKit available as a single pack up to a four pack bundle depending on your requirements. The four pack will cover 4,000 sq ft!  Set-up is very easy due to them being pre-paired at the factory and the nodes have been tastefully designed as simple white cubes, meaning there is no need to hide them away. The easy-to-use Tenda Wi-Fi App allows you to block unauthorised users with a single tap and supports parental control to help your kids surf safely.

We also have whole home options from other manufacturers, including the very well-reviewed Google Wi-Fi AC1200 Whole Home System and the multi award-winning Linksys Velop Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System, available with both dual and tri band technology.

Also causing some excitement amongst the Box team is the Orbi Mesh Wi-Fi system with Orbi Voice Smart Speaker, a smart speaker with Amazon Alexa built into your whole home Wi-Fi solution. Available at Box soon!
