WELLINGTON, New Zealand, May 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Nova Energy has announced the launch of Plume - an innovative new offering of smart, modern home internet services to New Zealanders.
Plume services deliver reliably fast internet to every room in the house, controls for guest use and family features that allow child-appropriate web browsing which can time out, when it's 'lights out'.
"We know modern households want a consistently strong WiFi signal in every room of the house and some would like greater parental controls, so we've partnered with Plume to bring these services to New Zealand," says Michael O'Donnell, Nova's GM for Sales & Marketing.
All the Plume features can be easily managed through a simple mobile app, giving users full control.
Adaptive WiFi™ delivers consistent internet access with SuperPods creating a network throughout the home, so every room gets reliable WiFi. HomePass® gives users control over what devices and content children and guests can access.
This means parents can put usage limits on devices, have them time-out at night, and keep track of all internet use. It also means adult websites can be blocked for certain devices.
"Nova is excited to provide this innovative new product range to New Zealanders. We want to give our customers the best possible internet experience and Plume's new technology will definitely help us deliver that, particularly for customers who currently have WiFi signal issues, or families who want to create healthier internet habits," says Michael O'Donnell.
"We're incredibly excited to bring Plume to New Zealand," says Plume co-founder and CEO Fahri Diner. "Partnering with Nova is a big step in Plume's continuing mission to deliver the best-connected internet experience to the world."
Nova's new Plume service includes a starter pack of two SuperPods, which easily plug in around the home to improve WiFi coverage, along with an on-going monthly Plume membership. New customers will also receive a free three month trial, allowing them to experience the service first, before paying a cent.
