UK multiplay telco Vodafone has launched Vodafone Pro Broadband with Alexa Built-in which it claims offers customers a UK broadband first – a Super WiFi Plus booster with Alexa Built-in, hybrid 4G broadband back-up and dedicated WiFi Xperts support from £38 (€45) a month.
Vodafone’s new booster includes Alexa – giving households the ability to listen to music, check the news, set reminders and activate Internet downtime, plus many more features by using their voice. The new hub also supplies whole-home coverage for any household, with simple plug-and-play set up and a smart connection using the Vodafone Home Broadband app.
There’s also access to Alexa skills, such as the ‘Dinnertime’ skill – allowing customers to pause the Internet on selected devices for 30 minutes of downtime by saying “Alexa, turn on dinnertime” – so children and adults will have less distractions when the family comes together.

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.
