i3 Broadband, a fiber-based Internet service provider (ISP) in central Illinois, is rolling out i3 Smart WiFi Powered by Plume. The service is based on Plume Adaptive WiFi, which continually monitors a home's Internet usage and self-optimizes to distribute the WiFi signal to devices and areas of the home that need it most.

"We always strive to offer our customers the latest in broadband technology, and i3 Smart WiFi provides another way for our customers to have a world-class Internet experience," said Dan Kennedy, president and COO of i3 Broadband. "Want to improve WiFi coverage to all parts of your home or control your family's Internet consumption? i3 Smart WiFi gives you unmatched coverage along with industry-leading control."

The service uses Plume SuperPods, hexagon shaped devices that plug into a power outlet and carry signal throughout the home. Each home is required to have one SuperPod that acts as a router replacement. Depending on the size of the home, additional SuperPods will be recommended as needed to provide whole-home WiFi coverage.

The Plume app can be used to set parental controls, grant guest access, and protect against cyber-attacks and malware.

i3 Broadband is currently offering i3 Smart WiFi in all of its active service areas. Customers may call their local i3 Broadband retail store to enroll and have pods shipped directly to the home.
