    Wow, another subscription for the consumer! Plume has announced you will need a subscription in order to purchase their products. wonder how much data they will be collecting and reselling about you.

    I sure hope this is not the future. I remember when antivirus software start the subscription trend and just about every major software now requires a subscription.



    Plume is launching a $60/year subscription service for its Wi-Fi routers

    Why not just have a router for free wifi? Sounds like snake oil.

    It is no different than those who purchase antivirus when the freebie is just as good. The problem is, some users will have to pay up to four subscriptions just for the internet if they get this
    1. Internet
    2. modem
    3. wifi
    4. for x amount of connected devices
