xFi Pods for Gig Service?

xFi Pods for Gig Service?

I recently upgraded to gig speed from 300mps. I already had 3 xFi Pods in the house but they don't seem to help now. Does anyone know the max speed of these Pods? I'm wondering if they can't handle Gig speed and I should just get rid of them?

By the way, so far I'm dissapointed in gig speed....

The pods will not support Gig speed.

The 1GB plan is only supported with the right hardware and only on an ethernet connection.  I get about 500 down with my iPhone7 sitting next to my XB6 Gateway/Orbi.

Hi @golfnbike13

 

Thanks for posting to the Forums. What type of modem are you using?

Hey @golfnbike13

 

@RobertWy makes a good point. Pods are intended for coverage not speed. If you have WiFi dead spots, the pods will help with the coverage problems, but they will not deliver your max speed tier. I also wanted to re-emphasize that speed delivered to devices is dependent on the device's capabilities. Most devices cannot reach a full gig speed. I hope this helps.
