xFi Pods cell phone network extender - signals dropping when moving about house

New xFi and xFi pods user here.

 

We recently upgraded to the xFi advantage and gig speed plan. On our network is also a Verizon internal network extender because we do not get good coverage inside our house. Currently we also use the wi-fi calling feature on our iPhones. The network extender is connected via ethernet to the gateway. I thought having the wifi calling feature turned on would give us best chance for making calls.

 

Before the upgrade we did not have hardly any issues, but now, just moving throughout the house my wife has told me that calls will drop. Is this an issue with wifi calling and the device connecting from pod-to-pod? If so, I thought a mesh type network is supposed to prevent that from happening? Or does anyone have any experience with a similar cellular network extender and issues with the xFi gateway?

 

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
