Plume's self-optimising network can be set up in minutes via the Plume mobile app, and includes high-performance SuperPods—beautiful, tri-band Wi-Fi devices that plug directly into the wall.
Plume enhances TalkTalk's existing products by constantly analysing and adapting to each member's unique environment, which enhances Wi-Fi signal and streaming capabilities. Adaptive WiFi fills every inch of the home with a strong, reliable signal, ensuring a consistent experience across every device.
HomePass allows members to personalise guest access, create unique passwords, and control who gets on their network, for how long, and what they can do.
Advanced parental controls offer further personalisation, enabling parents to precisely control when and what services their children have access to. The ability to freeze Internet, block access to adult sites, or set access schedules makes for ultimate peace of mind.

TalkTalk was founded in 2003 to give people more choice, better value for money and make telecoms accessible to everyone. TalkTalk has always challenged the status quo by launching first of a kind products and services including free broadband at a time when people were paying above the odds and the first network-level parental controls with its HomeSafe product.
In 2016 TalkTalk became the first internet provider to scrap separate line rental charges across all its packages and offer a fixed price guarantee with the promise of no broadband price rises during the length of a contract. In addition to offering totally unlimited broadband as standard, TalkTalk has led the way in providing free security and privacy features for all of its customers, while competitors charge extra for these services. In 2012 TalkTalk TV launched, offering a flexible TV service that has quickly become Britain's fastest growing TV service with over 1.3 million customers.
TalkTalk recently strengthened its commitment to provide faster, more reliable connectivity by launching its Great Connection Guarantee. This means that new Faster Fibre Broadband customers are free to leave at any time during the first 30 days of their service going live if they're not fully satisfied with their new fibre connection. The Great Connection Guarantee is only be available to customers who are new to TalkTalk and sign up to a Faster Fibre plan. New Fibre customers will also receive a Wi-Fi Hub; with a Wi-Fi signal that can't be beaten by any other major broadband provider, TalkTalk's latest router has been rated as a 'best buy' by consumer champion Which? and recommended by Good Housekeeping.
This is the latest demonstration of TalkTalk's commitment to fairness and value, leading the industry as the first and one of the only providers to guarantee customers no mid-contract broadband price rises for up to 24 months.
