Now, he can disappear upstairs and watch endless sports – golf, cricket, football… he’ll watch anything. He has his peace and quiet, or rather he leaves us in peace to watch a kids’ film together.

If I get a spare moment, I’ll catch up on police dramas such as The Bay and Line Of Duty or watch a film while I’m having a relaxing bath because we now have wi-fi up there. At the end of the day, it’s really nice to all come together to sit down in front of a film on the TV – that’s our family time.

Having wi-fi all over the house gives the whole family peace of mind as well as complete flexibility – we can use every room in the house with the guarantee that it’s there.

If Poppy’s having a toddler tantrum when I’m trying to get her dressed or change her nappy, I can show her a video on my phone to distract her.

The hub has made a real difference to the speed of our internet and I think it’s good value, too, especially if you had a larger house and needed to extend the signal.

As the children get older, we’ll need the internet for so many different reasons and it’s good to know that a strong, reliable wi-fi signal is always there.”

Isabella understands things are loading when she sees that wheel going round, but Poppy, who is two, has no tolerance for it.

The biggest difference has been having wi-fi signal in those upstairs blackspots – and it’s a bonus to have wi-fi in the garden at last.

We put a disc in the furthest point of the kitchen, so now if I want to send a work email while keeping an eye on the kids outside it’s easy to do that. Now we’ll be able to FaceTime the grandparents in the summer and show them what mischief the girls are getting up to out there. There’s no way we’d have been able to do that before – we live in a village with no 3G.

And now we’ve got a signal all over the house it’s so much easier for the family to keep in touch. Tom would often FaceTime to let us know when he’d be home from work just as I was putting Poppy to sleep and it’d go in and out of signal, but now he can say goodnight to her if he’s going to be late.

Tom is a real sports fan and with our new wi-fi he finds it much easier to watch it on his phone. Before, it’d be hard to load so we’d all have to sit and watch boring football matches on the telly, which caused some protests from us girls.

“BEFORE we tried this, we had no signal at the back of the house so it’s made a massive difference.

With two children and another on the way, we do put a big demand on our wifi and it’s only going to be put under more pressure.

We’ve got two laptops, two iPads, three phones, the TV and Sky Box, Alexa, our Philips Hue System (which works the lights on an app) and a smartplug. When we’re all at home and they’re all on, we used to  nd that things slowed down.

Isabella, four, likes to ask Alexa for Baby Shark, Poppy wants to watch Peter Rabbit on CBeebies, while Tom might be finishing off work on his phone.

Before we tried BT Complete Wi-Fi, we had a dodgy signal in the two top rooms – the bathroom and my daughter Poppy’s room.

YouTube and iPlayer were slow to load, especially with impatient children who don’t understand it can take a while. But since setting this up, we immediately noticed things were downloading at the click of a finger. There are now less tantrums as the girls don’t have to wait for things to download.
