Improve your Wi-Fi with the Home Optimizer app

You connect to the internet via Wi-Fi with your mobile phone or tablet? The free Home Optmizer application allows you to optimize the quality of your Wi-Fi, test its speed and offers many other services.

Why no Home optimizer app on iPhone and iPad?

The security protocols of the iPhone and iPad do not allow for the moment to offer an iOS version of the Home Optimizer. However, you can manually change the wi-fi channel of your modem. Apple also offers tips for improving Wi-Fi for iOS and Mac devices.

Install Home Optimizer

  1. Download and install Home Optimizer for free via the Play Store or App Store.

    Mobile or tablet Android 4.2 or higher

  2. Check you are connected to the Wi-Fi network of your b-box modem.
  3. Log in with your MyProximus login and password. Warning: you must use the login and password of the MyProximus account manager.
