Re: XFi pods - slow speeds

I have the same problem with my network. I have unplugged all the pods, moved the router to a central location, and used ethernet connections where possible to it.

I am getting 200-300 plus now in the majority of the home.

I have tried several times to optimize the layout but it does not change the outcome - a degraded network across the house (unless you are beside the router).

Clearly this is not what I was expecting for the investment. Disappointing to say the least.

From the article here;

xFi Pods and Internet Speeds

Will xFi Pods provide maximum Internet speeds throughout my home?
Pods are not intended to provide the maximum speed of your Internet speed tier throughout your home. For example, if you have a speed tier that provides download speeds up to 200 Mbps, Pods will not provide that speed throughout your home. Rather, Pods will allow you to connect in areas where you could not previously connect to your in-home WiFi.

Pods will not exceed the maximum provisioned speed of your Xfinity Internet tier of service. Pods have a maximum throughput of 200 Mbps over a WiFi connection in laboratory settings. Other factors can affect speeds.
