What customers say about "Key Specs"
BT Mini Whole Home Wi-Fi AC1200 Mesh Wi-Fi for Seamless (Pack of 3)
  • Connection speeds on our ground floor are excellent and good on the first floor.
  • Got speeds up over 100mb over whole semi three bed house, tripled my speeds in all rooms.
  • These work brilliantly improving the speed on par with sitting in the same room as the router. A very happy household.
  • I went from having 7 mb/s download speeds in room to 170.
  • This provides a robust Wi-Fi signal but halves the speed in the process.
BT Whole Home Wi-Fi Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System (Pack of 3)
  • The BT disks have great range, speed and reliability! Very easy to set up.
  • I ordered the three disk pack and it has given me 100% coverage.
  • 3 disc because I live in a large old house with very thick walls. The reception is now full speed in every room! Including the attic!!!!
  • The Whole Home system delivers much better wireless than my stonking big Netgear R8000 Nighthawk x 6 AC3200 which drops off massively once distance to router increases.
  • I now have high speed WiFi coverage across the entire house. Works a charm with the 4K netflix stream in the far corner of the house!

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
BT Mini Whole Home Wi-Fi AC1200 Mesh Wi-Fi for Seamless (Pack of 3)
  • Looks good & are small in size.
  • The disks are small and come with their own plug-in power supply.
  • Quite small so not too obtrusive. Works well.
  • Solid performance. Good size of this one. Powerful device.
  • Has small size, nice speed, good range. A great product.
BT Whole Home Wi-Fi Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System (Pack of 3)
  • Each disc is about the size of a smoke alarm and are not unattractive in the scheme of things.
  • The main product picture is a little misleading - all the discs are the same size, somewhere between a saucer and side plate sized!
  • The discs are largely made of metal and appear very well built. The system is very easy to setup using the free to download App.
  • The BT nodes are circular and stand on a chrome stand. At first they feel heavy and solid until you realise that most of the weight is in the stand.
  • Bigger than expected, at size of small side plate, but not ugly.

What customers say about "Network Specifications"
BT Mini Whole Home Wi-Fi AC1200 Mesh Wi-Fi for Seamless (Pack of 3)
  • It works wonderfully! Has dual band, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.
  • Brilliant. I have the 3 disk system with dual band. I like it.
  • These have worked brilliantly. Dual band is good for me.
  • Good range on 2.4GHz, I like that. Would recommend.
  • The range of each disc isn't great, so you need one in each room vertically. Doesn't have triple band, only dual.
BT Whole Home Wi-Fi Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System (Pack of 3)
  • Excellent, fast, reliable wifi .. similar to how Superhub 3 could do it runs 2.4 & 5Ghz network on one SSID - but this actually works!!
  • No more dropping your WiFi and restarting it to pick up the strongest signal. It will also put each device on whichever band it decides is best (2.4 or 5g) and it is consistently fast no matter where I am in the house.
  • The backhaul from disc one that is connected to the router via LAN with backhaul between the other disc number two is via wifi at 5 GHz with good signal.
  • Tablets happily run on 5GHz and security cameras run on 2.4GHz.
  • Excellent speeds and coverage, but android devices with both 2.4 and 5ghz appear to lose connection with 'authentication error'.

What customers say about "Features"
BT Mini Whole Home Wi-Fi AC1200 Mesh Wi-Fi for Seamless (Pack of 3)
  • Using the app to control them. Great features.
  • Devices will connect to the closest disc seamlessly as you move them around the house.
  • I'm not a huge fan of the app. It hides too much from you about how these devices are configured and operate.
  • The BT app is rubbish and keeps crashing.
  • Too many issues with the app. Could not get past setting up the first disc. App failed to find any additional discs.
BT Whole Home Wi-Fi Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System (Pack of 3)
  • You can manage each disk separately with app.
  • Using the app on my smart phone, I found the best spots in which to place the other two discs. The result is that I have Wi-fi throughout the house and no dead spots or weak spots at all.
  • The control app is relatively easy to use and you can set some basic child controls which effectively just stops internet connectivity to selected devices during scheduled times.
  • The App is ok, nothing to get too excited about but does the job.
  • The Whole Home Wifi app is OK. It kept showing alerts to update Whole Home Wifi software even though I had set it to update automatically.
