A comparative analysis of Plume’s Adapt WiFi vs. other WiFi services

We compared Adapt against Eero, Orbi, and Google Nest systems using 7 measures of customer experience. See how it stacks up.

Communications Service Providers (CSPs) need a smarter way to respond to expectations for better connectivity and performance in an evolving market. An enhanced Quality of Experience (QoE), which measures performance through the consumers’ viewpoint, is one way CSPs can differentiate themselves.

We believe that Plume’s cloud-based Adapt WiFi service—a prominent feature of our HomePass suite—provides the highest performing and most reliable connectivity solution available today. To support this claim, we developed a comprehensive set of test cases based on the QoE to see how Adapt performs against other popular WiFi solutions in both the service provider and retail markets.
