Plume pods optimize home networks to ensure all devices achieve the fastest speeds possible
MONTRÉAL, Jan. 24, 2018 /CNW Telbec: Bell today announced the launch of Whole Home Wi-Fi, Canada's first Wi-Fi service that brings smart and fast Wi-Fi to every room in the home while adapting to changing user requirements.
Bell has partnered with Plume to deliver new access points, called pods, that work with the cloud-based networking intelligence of Bell's Home Hub 3000 modem to deliver a fully adaptive Wi-Fi service.
Whole Home Wi-Fi learns how households use the Internet and continually optimizes the home network to ensure all devices receive the strongest signal and the fastest speed available throughout the home. The Bell Wi-Fi mobile app also allows customers to manage their entire home network remotely, including parental control over every Wi-Fi connected device.
"The number of Wi-Fi enabled devices Canadians are using throughout their homes is growing fast. Backed by Fibe Internet, Bell Whole Home Wi-Fi offers them the full coverage and control they want from their in-home Wi-Fi experience," said Rizwan Jamal , President of Bell Residential Services and Small Business. "Whole Home Wi-Fi is another example of the connected home technology that has made Bell the innovation leader in residential communications."
Plume pods plug directly into standard electrical outlets to deliver whole-home Wi-Fi coverage free of dead zones. This mesh network solution also learns the household's schedule and user routines to ensure the network is optimized during peak usage hours.
The Bell Wi-Fi mobile app for Android and iOS enables quick and easy pod and device setup and lets you quickly view the location of each pod and all connected devices in real-time, track bandwidth optimization, share network access with guests, and change the Wi-Fi network name and password.
Initially available to qualifying customers in Ontario and Québec, and soon in Atlantic Canada and Manitoba , Whole Home Wi-Fi pods are available for $5 per month for a 4-pack and $2 per month for added singles.
