Wi-Fi boosters/extenders

Has anyone had one?

We struggle with getting Wi-Fi signal at the far end of the house, which is where my bedroom is, which is where I spend a lot of time on the computer. The signal is there and works, but there is a lot of high latency which I notice when playing games.

We are with EE and they want £10 a month for a booster, but it seems you can buy one for anything from £15 to £250+.

My Granny has a large bungalow and is with Virgin Media who charge £8 a month for the same booster service and it works perfectly.

Does anyone have any experiences? Especially with BT/EE, rather than Virgin. I'd rather pay a one-off price and then the hardware is mine to keep, but I am wondering whether it is better to keep it all in-house and just go with EE's service for £10 a month.

Thanks.
