Sky has introduced a new device to help customers improve wireless broadband coverage throughout their homes.

The Sky Wireless Booster is designed to reach parts of the home which previously may have struggled to receive a signal from the router.

It will be available for free for a limited time from Boxing Day (December 26th) for new and existing customers who have a Wi-Fi 'blackspot'.

According to Sky, 37 per cent of all UK households with broadband experience range issues in an area of the home.

And with consumers increasingly using mobile devices such as tablets to get online, this may be affecting their user experience.

"Designed with Sky customers in mind, this state-of-the-art Wi-Fi Booster takes broadband to parts of your home that your router alone may not typically reach”, explained Lyssa McGowan, Director of Communications Products at Sky.

"Further building on Sky’s wireless leadership, customers with Sky Broadband and our new boosters can benefit from greater connectivity, whether they’re enjoying TV in the kitchen, checking Twitter in the bedroom or Skyping on the sofa."

Sky subscribers seeking a booster need to go to sky.com/mysky to apply. They need to do so by January 30th 2014 in order to take advantage of the free offer.
