Atlantic Broadband has launched Enhanced WiFi services for residential and business customers in New Hampshire, Maine, eastern Pennsylvania, southern Maryland and Virginia service areas that were acquired from MetroCast last year.

Enhanced WiFi (E-WiFi), which Atlantic Broadband first launched in its existing markets in 2017, is a WiFi mesh system.

"The quality of the in-home WiFi experience and business-based WiFi performance is critical to daily life and commerce today," said Heather McCallion, Vice President of Products and Programming for Atlantic Broadband. "After Atlantic Broadband acquired the MetroCast properties last year, we significantly boosted Internet speeds for all of our residential and business customers. With today's launch of E-WiFi, our customers will have access to powerful technology that will take internet performance to new heights."

E-WiFi service utilizes multiple wireless mesh access points (APs) and routing algorithms designed by AirTies to provide whole-home coverage.

Atlantic Broadband E-WiFi features:

  • An extendable wireless mesh network that provides WiFi coverage throughout the home or business
  • Video stream prioritization designed to eliminate buffering
  • WiFi noise cancelling and connection steering
  • An E-WiFi app that allows customers to monitor and manage their home network, establish a network for guests, and to troubleshoot their network remotely
