April Fool – Spectrum Internet Launch Superconnected Babies and FTT-Pram

Saturday, April 1st, 2017 (12:01 am) - Score 945

Welsh ISP Spectrum Internet has today announced the launch of their new Superconnected Babies scheme, which is a new initiative that aims to provide superfast broadband connectivity via Fibre-to-the-Pram (FTTPram) technology to 0-3 year old customers.

The scheme, due to begin in late 2017, aims to get the youngest digital citizens of Wales online with superfast broadband access. Spectrum suggests that this will help to foster a new generation of digital “super prams” with on-board multimedia entertainment systems and VOIP call capability/intercom.

The plan claims that up to half a million “babycab” fibre cabinets in South Wales will be used, via WiFi, to connect the super pram network with superfast broadband.

Claire Brown, Spectrum Internet’s Marketing Director, said:

“In this digital age, everyone needs superfast connectivity, even babies. We’ve given my two young daughters the prototypes to test, and they love them. We want to help busy parents so enabling your child to stream their favourite tv content and also being able to notify mum or dad when they’re hungry or need changing through Internet of Things monitors will be invaluable.

From experience, I know parents will also want to Skype their little ones at nursery to make sure everything is ok.”

The prams will also feature the trademarked Spectrobabble, Spectrum’s state of the art “baby-Cortana“, that learns your child’s vocalisations and what they mean. Baby can therefore use voice commands to control the system, or of course, use the baby sized keyboard and trackpad. Further details can be found here.

UPDATE:

In case the┬áhexadecimal code and link didn’t give it away, this was an April Fools ­čÖé .

    How about fibre to the womb?

  2. Avatar Steve Jones says:

    Fibre to the baby might make things easier to digest, albeit some might consider this to be in bad odour.

  3. Avatar Bill Murphy says:

    I think its a fantastic idea, bring on technology the babies and kids are loving it, and I think Fibre Too The Pram is a huge leap forward, perhaps we (oldies) will really start to understand their garbled blurbs and we can even use the pram satnav connected for updates. Brilliant story see you tomorrow the 2nd of April
