"Later this year, Comcast will launch no-configuration, adaptive xFi pods that can be paired with either the xFi Wireless Gateway or the xFi Advanced Gateway, which will help customers extend their Wi-Fi coverage to even the most remote areas of their homes. The company has made an investment in Plume, a leading developer of distributed Wi-Fi software and systems, and is working with them to combine the technologies of Plume and xFi into a unified experience that improves throughput and consistency to individual devices and provides even easier and more seamless whole-home Wi-Fi coverage."

 

There will probably be a big announcement when they are available.

Well,

 

The service is still being rolled out in many areas.

 

I just had my Gigabit service installed this week.

 

The pods seem to be pretty "elusive" at the moment. I say this for the following reasons:

1. I can't seem to order them online. Despite references to ordering a self-install kit.

2. My local flagship store (well its new and the tech called it a flagship) does not have the pods and told me a technician needed to bring them to me.

3. Store set up apointment and I hade severla conversations with the original installer and several supervisors today and cancel the follow-up visit.

 

There are Plume pods available elsewhere ($179 for 3). But 3 from Comcast are only $119. I think I will just wait it out and see if they become available!

 

I can say the 3 different Comcast reps did suggest other options like EERO or Plum (from other sources). I think I will just wait.
