RIDGELAND, MS — C Spire, a telecommunications and technology services company that provides wireless communications, 1 Gig consumer internet access as well as a full suite of internet, wireless, IP Voice, data and cloud services for businesses, is partnering with smart home services provider Plume to introduce a new Smart Wi-Fi solution that solves the internet coverage "dead spot" problem in homes for its next-generation residential broadband program, which features ultra-fast gigabit speed internet access, award-winning live streaming TV and premium digital home phone service.

The solution, which is powered by Plume, is being offered to new and existing customers of C Spire Home, the division that manages the company's residential fiber program. Subscribers get the Plume app, two SuperPods that plug into home wall sockets and services like content filtering, online security, remote Wi-Fi access and more for just $10 per month.

"Smart Wi-Fi is advanced technology that gives our FTTH customers more control of their home internet experience and more coverage than ever before," said Ashley Phillips, general manager of C Spire Home, noting that the service features Plume Adaptive Wi-Fi, parental controls, AI Security and HomePass, which lets users control guest and child access to their network, set up profiles and pause internet access.

More Bandwidth on Demand Anywhere in the Home

Phillips said Smart Wi-Fi gives consumers of the company's residential broadband service more bandwidth on demand in any room of the home with Plume Adaptive Wi-Fi, sending the ultra-fast signal to the area where it is needed the most. "The best part about this service is that homeowners can control everything from one easy smartphone or tablet application."

Using AI to Constantly Monitor and Improve Performance in Real-Time

Smart Wi-Fi systems have been growing in popularity across the U.S. in recent years and Plume's Adaptive Wi-Fi goes a step further. The cloud-based software uses artificial intelligence to constantly monitor and improve performance in real-time. This provides a more robust solution as more homeowners demand ultra-fast residential broadband internet access to power a variety of new smart home applications, including door openers, door locks, security cameras, digital voice assistants, Wi-Fi thermostats, multi-player gaming, streaming video and other IoT devices.

Since 2014, C Spire has rolled out its ultra-fast gigabit speed internet access and related services in 24 Mississippi markets, boosting overall broadband connection speeds by over 200 percent with similar expansion plans this year in neighboring Alabama. The services have boosted home values and improved the overall quality of life for everyone.

Residential fiber is part of the C Spire Tech Movement, which is committed to moving communities forward through technology with a focus on broadband access, workforce development and technology innovation.
