Netgem expands TV service to SuperStream WiFi Mesh

March 25, 2021

Netgem has announced a series of upcoming launches with ISPs starting with InternetTY, a fast-growing FTTH player in the Liverpool, Manchester, North Lincolnshire and Staffordshire areas. Netgem has also confirmed the upcoming launch of SuperStream with leading Irish provider Pure Telecom, and UK ISP Origin Broadband is also set to start marketing the service.

Netgem has introduced SuperStream, a Wifi Mesh product with simple set-up, coupled with a powerful quality-of-service tool for ISP Customer operations, as an extension of the TV QoS Management service already deployed with UK & Ireland ISPs. Moreover, Netgem has expanded the principle already established with its Netgem TV service, and created a new ‘Mesh-as-a-Service’ commercial model, suited for fibre ISPs wishing to adopt Wifi Mesh at scale. This follows the successful launch of SuperStream in October last year across Full Fibre ISP ‘VIDEOFUTUR’ in France, with all Fibre plans systematically offered with the Netgem TV & WiFi Mesh solution.

Ben Wragg, head of network transformation at InternetTY, commented: “Our network is Gigabit+ speeds capable and customers’ expectations is that WiFi must be super strong in every room. These days even in relatively small properties WiFi coverage can be tricky – we wanted to complement our offering with a Mesh service that is simple to install and cost effective, whilst bringing us the back office tools we need to meet our customers high expectations. Netgem was in balance the perfect offer in the market for that.”

Sylvain Thevenot, Chief Commercial & Customer Officer at Netgem Group, commented: “Our experience deploying SuperStream in France across thousands of Fibre homes confirmed that our service has a true mass market appeal with more than half of customers adopting SuperStream WiFi Mesh with their Fibre Broadband & TV plans. In addition, building on 20 years+ of experience working with Operators, we have added the WiFi Mesh complete Quality-of-Service features to our existing Cloud based service tool for Customer operations, and we are very pleased to make our first deployments of SuperStream with Netgem TV in the UK & Ireland.”
