What customers say about "Key Specs"
Xfinity xFi Pods WiFi Network Range Extenders
  • It works perfectly but you can get 3 pods for 119$ from xfinity.
  • Got one only for the kitchen. My laptop in the kitchen was only getting 2 and every so often three wi fi bars. Now it's getting all five and the connectivity is also faster.
  • Pods are basically repeating the signal from your main router they also will pick up a signal from each other.
  • This Pods work Great i recommend the Pack of 3.This part will turn your house into a entire network. For me is Great No problem at All.
  • Bought a single pod and it only caused problems - talking to an xfiniity tech we were told that they are designed to work in groups of three. They won’t support a single pod.
  • Wanted a 3-pack but this was only one. Not a good price for 1.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Xfinity xFi Pods WiFi Network Range Extenders
  • It certainly looks better than the standard router we have all got used to. It looks like a very small speaker.
  • Compared to my old setup the velop units are great. They are neat (about the size of a pint glass) and easy on the eye (no antennae).
  • It certainly looks like it's built to fit in with the decor of a modern home.
  • The first days I did not notice it at all because it completely merges with the outlet. Perfect size.
  • It resembles a hexagon, which does not quite fit into the decor. And as for me, it is too large and can block an adjacent outlet.

What customers say about "Network Specifications"
Xfinity xFi Pods WiFi Network Range Extenders
  • So far this does seem to be helping our connectivity issue, although it actually seemed to take days before the improvement showed up.
  • If they do work they will allow you to go from room to room seamlessly and not have to worry about speed changes.
  • You need at least 2 for it to work. 1 has to be plugged up next to the modem, and the other(s) have to be plugged up in your dead zones and bands work great.
  • There is no difference in the connectivity/speed/use of internet in the kitchen area of our house after we installed this.
  • In my case my TP-Link high powered router worked better because the pod(s) to weak and the signal were unstable.

What customers say about "Features"
Xfinity xFi Pods WiFi Network Range Extenders
  • I highly recommend it. The installation took three minutes. Plug and Play.
  • Pods can be plugged into indoor electrical outlets and quickly self-installed using the xFi app, so you’ll be up and running in no time.
  • In many homes, the xFi Gateway can deliver all the speed and coverage you need. For homes with connectivity issues, Pods can help extend your WiFi coverage.
  • Easily monitor and control all your WiFi activity on your home network directly through the xFi app.
  • If you lack outlets, this is not for you, as it will take one place in the outlet and look not very beautiful.
