Shaw WiFi Pods are WiFi extenders that work with your BlueCurve Gateway and BlueCurve Home app. They ensure wall-to-wall WiFi coverage in any home, and are easily activated on your home network using the BlueCurve Home app.

Pods are designed to provide extended, more consistent coverage throughout your entire home by eliminating "dead spots" — areas where WiFi coverage is weak or drops. They won't boost your Internet speed or provide the maximum speed of your Internet tier.

Features

  • Easy Installation
    Designed with simplicity in mind, pods plug directly into any electrical outlet and require no wires to get going. Visit Setting up and activating Shaw WiFi Pods to get started!

  • BlueCurve Home app Integration
    Guided setup via the BlueCurve Home app allows for quick and easy activation of Pods.

  • Wall-to-wall WiFi Coverage
    Pods are designed to provide extended, more consistent coverage throughout your entire home.

  • Tri-band Radio (Fibre+ WiFi Pods only)
    Allows for communication between the BlueCurve Gateway and the Fibre+ WiFi Pod to run separate from the pod and its connected devices for uninterrupted communication.

  • Multiple Ethernet Ports (Fibre+ WiFi Pods only)
    With a second ethernet port, Fibre+ WiFi Pods can now provide a wired connection to a second device.

  • Adaptive Mesh
    With WiFi mesh technology, access points work together as one to create a single WiFi network. In larger homes, more access points can be added to ensure full coverage.

  • Unique Design
    Pods have a unique, angular design, and fit in perfectly with your BlueCurve Gateway and BlueCurve TV equipment.

You will need: 

Do I need pods?

Do you have rooms in your home with poor WiFi connectivity? If so, pods may be a good solution. Pods help extend the range of WiFi coverage in your home to hard-to-reach areas, or areas with poor WiFi signal.

Will pods improve my Internet speed?

No, pods won't increase your Internet speed, and are not intended to provide the maximum speed of your Internet subscription tier. Pods will only help you connect in areas where you could not previously connect to your in-home WiFi.

How do I get Shaw WiFi Pods?

You can order Pods online at shaw.ca, or by contacting a Shaw agent. BlueCurve Pods are available in a 3-Pack, and Fibre+ WiFi Pods are available individually. You can rent a maximum of three 3-Packs per account or up to six Fibre+ WiFi pods.
