Powerline adapters

Hi, would Now TV supply free powerline adapters in the case of weak WiFi signal in some parts of the house? If so, how would I request these? Asking because my previous ISP used to do this. 

Thank you.

NOW don't provide anything else other than the router. If you want powerline adapters you will need to fork out for these on Amazon etc.

FYI that I do not work for NOW, just a NOW customer trying to help

Powerline Adaptors will only get you to one other place in the property, and you said places.

 

Though if you get a set of PLAs with a WiFi capability at the far end, that will at least cover what’s in range of that WiFi. Like this one:-

I was very happy with one of these to get the internet, and WiFi, out to my garden office over the mains cable that ran out to there.

 

But you might want to consider a proper WiFi mesh system instead.

Line 3. Overhead, without any fuss, the stars were going out…..
