Pretty much everything we own today requires WiFi. It has become a vital part of our daily lives rather we realize it or not. Thus, it is often incredibly frustrating when you try to extend your WiFi connection to another part of your house. Most routers today cannot create a wide enough coverage area to fill in all the areas we need. Most have to use extenders now and that can be a costly/painful system to set up. Luckily for us, companies are seeing an area that they can fix and that is where Plume WiFi comes in.
Plume WiFi pods are a new device that are designed to increase your WiFi coverage of an area. It connects directly with your ISP and uses your electrical wiring in your house to help to make your WiFi network stronger everywhere. This of course could make it a very appealing option to the less tech oriented, as they are supposed to be pretty plug in play. However, their costs may not be one of their best selling points out there. Especially since you have to buy at least 6 online. No word on if they will be sold in-stores anytime soon.
They are currently slated for a fall release and will be sold for $49 USD per unit. The good news is that you can pre-order them for $39 per unit.
How do you feel about this concept? Do you think they will work like advertised? I am not sure, but it does sound pretty convincing!
