Telenor Rawaan takes you on a never before seen musical journey across Pakistan

Telenor Rawaan takes you on a never before seen musical journey across Pakistan

There is no denying the fact that Pakistan is filled with tremendous natural beauty and a plethora of cultural diversities. This was recently highlighted in a delightful music video called “Rawaan” sponsored by Telenor in which some of the major tourist attractions of the country have been highlighted. The video portrays the journey of a music producer who is in the midst of capturing some of the most breath taking sights and sounds of the country. The video not only promotes various cultures but at the same time also spreads the message of love and peace in a manner that is not only serene but at the same time quite soothing to the soul as well. The music composed in the video is a perfect blend of Sufi poetry and local folk songs stringed together in a single truly mesmerizing bundle. With the recent acquisition of the 4G spectrum, Telenor has come a long way from just being a simple network provider and has taken into its stride to not only provide their customers with the best services but in the process of doing so, also bridge the gap between various cultures of the country. In order to cater the high demanding communication needs of the country, Telenor Rawaan is most certainly a step in the right direction. It is a metaphorical manifestation of this very endeavor. The mystical voyage for enlightenment mirrors Telenor’s own philosophy of looking within the customer. Traveling across the land, it becomes evident how every region and its people have their own unique flavor and it is precisely these striking differences that unite us. In the way a garden unites all varieties of flowers rooted in the same soil. This symbolizes precisely how Telenor recognizes the differences that make each of its customers unique and allows Telenor to deliver customized, personal solutions. And finally the epic journey of self-discovery signifies Telenor’s own limitless journey driven by the ambition to fulfill its core value; ‘Customer First’. You can also be a part of this amazing journey. Just use the hashtag #TelenorRawaan on various social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and be a part of this new revolution to bring the different people of our beloved country even more closer to each other.

Say Goodbye to regular Wi-Fi signal drops with Plume Pods

Say Goodbye to regular Wi-Fi signal drops with Plume Pods

In today’s wireless world where everything is seemingly connected over a local Wi-Fi network, we often seem to face a common issue where we do not get full signal strengths in all the rooms of our house. Agreed? There are some people who besides having two-three routers in a house sometimes complain about drop in signals especially if there are lots of doors and walls. All this is about to change with Plume Podsan adaptive WiFi network system which uses multiple pods throughout your house to give you the best coverage possible. The concept behind Plume Pods may sound similar to a standard mesh network, but Plume has developed a self-learning system which adapts to your house, your devices and surrounding WiFI networks to consistently deliver a fast and reliable WiFi connection. Simply connect a pod in each room and enjoy uninterrupted connectivity throughout the house. Each Pod is about the size of a small night bulb and plugs right into the wall. The Pods also come with an Ethernet port but you only need to connect one pod to your modem using a regular LAN cable. “Plume is a cloud coordinated WiFi system that exponentially increases the signal strength and quality of your WiFi. It monitors your WiFi activity and balances your network load without sacrificing the performance of one device over another. Plume utilizes multiple WiFi channels in the same home to communicate between Plume Pods, eliminating congestion as your WiFi demands change and increase. Our cloud algorithms figure out which band to use for each device to ensure your devices have access to the speed they deserve, avoiding interference along the way. Plume WiFi adapts to the physical space you live in, your online devices, your household, and even to your neighbor’s WiFi usage patterns (yes, their networks also impact your environment!). It adapts real-time to your personal needs.” As far as pricing and availability is concerned, the company is in the final testing phase before the Pods go on sale this fall. If you pre-order today, you can get a pack of six Pods for $234 with each additional Pod costing $39. Once the devices are floated in the market, each Plume Pod will be retailing at $49. Pre-orders are currently only limited to the US but the company says that it is planning to open them up to other countries as well before the official launch. So what do you guys think of this new handy little device? If you’re like me who uses multiple routers to cover the entire house, the Plume Pods can very well be the solution to all our Wi-Fi related problems. Source: Plume...
