XB7 XFiPods and 802.11ax

I have a XB7 Gateway and a couple of gen 2 PODs and was wondering if this combination supports the 802.11ax WiFi protocol?  Looking at bring a few WiFi 6 capable devices online soon.  Tried to change it with the gateway admin but it’s managed automagically now due to the Pods.  Any FAQs or doc would be helpful.  Thanks

Hi there! This is a great question! As a third-generation gateway, the XB7 does supports dual-band 802.11ax (WiFi 6). So, you should not have a problem using your new devices! We hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns!

FWIW, I do know that the XB7 supports 802.11ax / WiFi 6, but I'm not certain that the Xfinity Pods do. @ComcastAirelle Can you confirm or deny please ?
