Can you have more than 6 pods?

We have a very large house (8,500 sq ft - 3 levels) and I recently installed 6 pods.  They seem to be working well, but could probably use a few more.  For whatever unknown reason - the cable line enters our house through the basement (not ideal) - which is where the gateway is located.  I'm trying to find out if there is a maximum number of pods that can be installed.  Thanks for the help!

Re: Can you have more than 6 pods?

Hello @cdmiree ! Thank you for your question. There is no specific limit as to how many xFi pods you can add in a household, however pods can hurt as much as they can help if poorly or incorrectly installed. It would also depend on the placement of the modem (which you provided). A recommend good rule would be 1 pod per 1k sq ft is probably the best (maybe even less depending on the layout).
