Network unveils UK’s only voice-integrated WiFi booster
Vodafone has today launched Vodafone Pro Broadband with Alexa Built-in.
The network will be offering customers a UK broadband first with a WiFi Plus booster/Alexa Built-in, hybrid broadband back-up and dedicated WiFi Xpert support from £38 per month.
Vodafone’s new booster includes Alexa voice integration – giving households the ability to listen to music, check the news, set reminders and activate internet downtime, plus many more features using Alexa.
The new hub also supplies whole-home coverage for any household, with a simple plug-and-play set-up and a smart connection via the Vodafone Home Broadband app.
Customers who choose Vodafone Pro Broadband with Alexa Built-in will receive a Super WiFi Plus booster with the ability to:
- Use voice control to listen to music, including Amazon Music, TuneIn and Spotify (coming soon), as well as setting alarms and timers, and creating lists.
- Use Alexa to turn on house lighting, adjust thermostats and lock doors with compatible smart devices.
- Ask Alexa to tell a joke, read the time, answer questions, check the weather and more.
Customers on eligible Pay Monthly mobile plans can also use Vodafone OneNumber to make and receive calls on their Super WiFi Plus booster with Alexa Built-in, using their existing mobile number and allowance.
Customers who are new to Amazon Music can also enjoy a 90-day free trial of Amazon Music Unlimited with their Pro with Alexa Built-in plans.
Vodafone UK consumer director Max Taylor said: “We launched Vodafone Pro Broadband earlier this year to provide customers unbreakable broadband at an unbeatable price.
“Now we’re going one step further by adding this incredible unique Alexa-integrated broadband service, bringing the latest technology into our customers’ homes, making family life even easier.”
