Plume: The End To Rubbish Home WiFi

'Buffer' no more with our favourite bit of tech from this week

'Routers just became retro'. That's the pitch from Palo Alto-based company Plume, who aim to do away with home WiFi routers in favour of a series of plug-in pods designed to be scattered through the house. As we all know, there tends to be a disparity between the coverage and speed promised by your wi-fi provider and what you actually get. 

That's because it's easy to promise great WiFi coverage when conditions are perfect. But when everyone is home, someone's streaming a movie and you're upstairs and the router lives downstairs, that's not the case.

Plume is a WiFi solution powered by the cloud, meaning it can adapt in real-time to your demands, each plug-in giving the best coverage possible. Available in silver, black or champagne, they also look good – a change from your existing router which, if you're anything like Esquire, is 'hidden' down the side of the sofa behind a pile of old magazines.
