I’m considering a mesh network set up for our home. I have a router and repeater which works ok most of the time but has weird lacunae.
A friend of mine who is reasonably technically sophisticated (and an Apple guy) has a Plume set up which he really likes. It does not get as much play as Eero on this message board (or any that I could find).
There are a few things that interest me about this:
- You can buy a lifetime subscription to the service if you like it. Although expensive ($200) this eliminates the monthly fee and you come out ahead long term.
- If you are a subscriber you can buy any updated hardware at a steep discount, and each piece of hardware has a five year warranty.
- Xfinity seems to believe in their tech as they are setting Plume hardware. https://www.xfinity.com/learn/internet-service/wifi/xfi-pod-3pack
- A “real world” test shows that it works better than some of the other popular options
Just wondering if others have any experience with this system (or other mesh networking options).
