Re: Wi-fi router extender

hi my mom and i are a customer and i got your notice about the new upgrade,and i want to know if it's free ,or do i have to pay for the new equipment?my mom has the hbo boz,i just have a digital box that let's me watch travel channel,and all my favorite channels.and i'm not a savvy person who knows how to hook things uo i got a power box from comcast but i'm sending it back,because of to many wires,and they told me to use youtube to hook everythign up but i can't follow along on youtube.so if we get the equipment upgrade,we would need someone to come in and hook everything up for us.plus i don't have a smartphone i have a safelink phone,and no internet on my phone.so i can't do anything on my phone onliy texts,and messages.

Hello, Hickma204. Thanks for reaching out to us with your questions! It sounds like you are referring to the xFi Pods. You can read more about them here:

In short, they are extenders that help increase the range of the existing wifi signal within your home. It is important to note that they are not boosters and do not improve the strength of wifi signal, just allow for devices to connect from further away. 

These devices are self-install but come with install instructions and can be purchased in a 3-pack here: https://comca.st/32Zu7h8
