Next generation technology expands in home Wi-Fi coverage and capabilities.

  • Atlantic Broadband

 

QUINCY, MA–Atlantic Broadband has launched Wi-Fi Your Way, a managed home Wi-Fi solution powered by Plume HomePass that will provide expanded Wi-Fi coverage with enhanced reliability and superfast speed in every area of the home.

The new service, which uses Plume’s cloud-based artificial intelligence (AI) technology and is accessed via the Wi-Fi Your Way App, features:

  • Adapt continually learns and self-optimizes proactively to deliver greater speed and coverage throughout the home.
  • Control provides intuitive tools for personalization, allowing the user to set guest and child access controls (including age-appropriate content filters).
  • Speed Test capabilities are built-in so customers can easily monitor internet speed and performance.
  • Guardprovides best-in-class online security powered by AI that detects and protects in real time. The system halts suspicious activity, blocks ad and malware and quarantines any compromised devices.
  • Sense uses Wi-Fi-connected devices to provide whole-home motion awareness in real time for peace of mind and among many use-cases, provides alerts if there is motion when a customer is out of the home.

The Wi-Fi Your Way App (for iOS and Android devices) guides customers through an easy self-installation of SuperPods, which plug into a wall outlet to provide superfast whole-home coverage. The SuperPods work with any Atlantic Broadband gateway or modem. Customers lease the SuperPods rather than purchase them, keeping upfront costs down for customers.

“Home Wi-Fi is the way customers most commonly experience our internet service, so it must be the best it can be,” said Heather McCallion, Vice President of Products and Programming for Atlantic Broadband. “As in-home Wi-Fi becomes increasingly important to our customers, their in-home networks must be reliable, fast and deliver the connectivity they need to work and learn from home. Now, through our partnership with Plume, Atlantic Broadband’s high-capacity, fiber-rich network will be joined with a powerful in-home network to deliver a phenomenal Wi-Fi experience with wall-to-wall coverage, personalized controls and superfast speeds up to 1 Gig.”  

“Plume is thrilled to enable Atlantic Broadband to deliver an unparalleled in-home experience by providing access to an expanded and highly personalized managed Wi-Fi experience featuring high-speed connectivity, parental controls and guest access, tightly secured devices and more,” said Tyson Marian, Chief Commercial Officer at Plume. “Now more than ever subscribers need access to an expanded set of in-home experiences to enrich their daily lives––by rolling out Wi-Fi Your Way powered by Plume HomePass, Atlantic Broadband has introduced a powerful solution to meet the needs of the ever-changing smart home.”
