What customers say about "Key Specs"
Plume SuperPod AC3000 Tri-Band Whole Home Wifi System
  • It covers all the corners of my house really well. I recommend buying very good SuperPod.
  • I extended the two SuperPods out from my router to cover the full length of my house, then downloaded the app and set them up. And its work amazing.
  • I've tested a lot of Wifi Routers in my time and this was my first mesh system. I have a 4800 sq ft home across two floors. It's currently covered with 3 APs.
  • In our home we have gigabit fiber internet and the Plume SuperPods have truly helped us tap into the potential of this high speed connection.
  • Downstream and upstream speeds are way better than the previous Wi-Fi router we had.
  • The SuperPods are pretty much top-of-the-line using a triple band WiFi interface. However, even though the guts are fast, I found the range was not very impressive.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Plume SuperPod AC3000 Tri-Band Whole Home Wifi System
  • Even though they are about the size of the palm of your hand, the SuperPods themselves are pretty powerful.
  • The small size is another added plus. Hats off to the customer service team for walking me through the first steps and hats off to mesh WiFi!
  • When I first held the superpods it had a good weight to it, an inspired quality.
  • Also, I’m not sure about the design as Wifi’s are supposed to placed high up in a room.
  • With it being directly plugged into a wall jack the device will always be low in the room as that’s typically where wall outlets are. And you can hit it.

What customers say about "Network Specifications"
Plume SuperPod AC3000 Tri-Band Whole Home Wifi System
  • The Plume SuperPods are an AC3000 Gigabit WiFi system, which provide faster speeds than the AC2200 system I was using.
  • Amazing product! It will continuously optimize the network as Wi-Fi networks do change over time as more Wi-Fi devices are plugged in and being used.
  • This system is a tri-band unit which can truly repeat Wi-Fi without slowing down, not the cheap dual-band units.
  • It has two 5GHz bands and a 2.4Ghz bands, and all 3 bands can operate simultaneously to bridge data across the extenders and provide Wi-Fi access to devices!
  • There is no default admin login and password. You sign in using credentials established during registration. This ensures that your router does not have a gaping security hole in its side.

What customers say about "Features"
Plume SuperPod AC3000 Tri-Band Whole Home Wifi System
  • Its intuitive user interface, to its awesome feature set for managing wireless homes.
  • I love the built in parental controls and ability to filter out adult content as well. Keeps my kids safe online.
  • The Plume app is solid and gives you the ability to assign devices to individuals in your family and then apply controls, protections, and rules to each person.
  • Advanced features need more refining like being able to set limits per person rather than per device, or receive warnings when content is blocked via a child-friendly filter.
  • Can only access settings from an app not a desktop browser.
