The Plume membership offered specifically for TalkTalk customers includes Adaptive WiFi, HomePass guest access, parental controls, and the Plume app. The monthly fee includes a two-SuperPod starter pack. Additional SuperPods, devices that fit fit into electrical wall outlets to spread the internet from the modem to all areas of the home, are available for £69 each.
Adaptive WiFi provides pervasive WiFi coverage throughout the home, while HomePass allows members to personalise guest access, create unique passwords, and control who gets on their network, for how long, and what they can do. Advanced parental controls offer further personalisation, enabling parents to precisely control when and what services their children have access to.
“We’re continuously looking for ways to deliver great connectivity around the home and we know that fast, reliable Wi-Fi coverage is really important to our customers, particularly as the amount of time they’re spending online is increasing. Plume’s easy to use and personalised service aligns directly with TalkTalk’s core values of providing simple and reliable connectivity,” said Phil Amy, director of product at TalkTalk.
“Since launching Plume in the US, we’ve received a tremendous amount of interest from the UK. We are thrilled to deliver a new level of personalisation, connectivity, and security in the home to TalkTalk subscribers. TalkTalk is the perfect partner to expand Plume’s reach to a wider audience and continue our mission of delivering new, high quality services for the connected home,” said Sri Nathan, co-founder and head of business development at Plume.
Plume has been expanding its penetration in the European market. Maltese cable operator Melita recently teamed up with it to launch Stellar WiFi, powered by Plume, a service bundle that provides two Plume SuperPods.
