Is there a way for me to bypass the boost pod review period?

I just upgraded my speed to gigabit and upgraded to the xFi complete to get the unlimited data.  I went from using my own modem and router to using the Comcast provided system as my old modem didn't support gigabit.  My question is can I skip review period for the boost pod that's included with the package I'm paying for.  I had wifi boosters with my previous setup because I needed them.  The distance from the modem/router to my PC is about 50 feet through eight walls, four of which are the shower parts of two bathrooms.  Sometimes speeds will be 300+ Mbps for a little bit other times it be at speeds in the attached picture for hours.  Also for some reason the modem recognizes my PC as a Windows 10 device but I am definitely on Windows 11.  And all of my drivers across the board are up to date.
