Plume announces tech agreement with WightFibre

Smart home connectivity vendor Plume has announced a new agreement with WightFibre to provide the tech behind its new residential WiFi offer.

The new deal will see customers in the Isle of Wight offered WightFibre Whole Home Wifi, powered by Plume. The mesh network product promises to provide improved WiFi coverage, with every full fibre customer receiving one Plume SuperPod to increase their network’s range. One SuperPod will be included in the basic broadband package, while customers can pay an additional £9.25 per month to receive an additional two Plume SuperPods. 

John Irvine, CEO of WightFibre said: “Most broadband problems experienced by customers are actually caused by poor in-home Wi-Fi coverage. WightFibre is delighted to team up with Plume to bring our customers the best ever broadband experience with personalised Wi-Fi, security and parental controls included.”

Niall Robinson, VP business development at Plume said: “We are delighted to partner with WightFibre to bring the full suite of Plume Smart Home Services to its customers. Plume membership enables WightFibre to bring a uniquely differentiated offering to its subscribers that meets the needs of the evolving smart home, both now and in the future, through a highly scalable services delivery platform.”

The announcement follows similar deals signed with VOO in Belgium and Sunrise in Switzerland.

The vendor earlier this year also signed deals in the UK with TalkTalk and Virgin Media.
