I have a couple of intelligent wifi pods (free with my package) and gig1. The problem I have is that the pods max out at about 350Mb so I never really realise the gig1 potential. It also makes LAN file transfers slow.
I see that Plume now does wifi 6 pods.
Are there any plans for Virgin to release these to customers?
I received and setup the new pods last night. They took a few minutes to settle down (while they auto adapted to get the best configuration). I gave them the same ssid and password as the existing wifi on the hub and then switched off the wifi on the hub.
I have to say that the difference is amazing. I am now getting just under 940mbps down (939.79 mbps on the last speedtest) and 51mpbs upload. My phone connects at 1.2gbps on Wifi 6.
Basically the pods are a bit of a con, if you have the pods you have to have the 2.4G Wi-Fi turned on, so it connects everything to the 2.4G as opposed to the 5G so slows down the Wi-Fi connection significantly to anything connected via the pod. I previously used BT whole house hubs which operated on 5G and had much faster connections….. when i connect to my 1Gbps now, I’m lucky if I get 200mbps
