Ignite WiFi Pods (formerly known as Fibre+ WiFi Pods) are WiFi extenders that work with your Ignite WiFi Gateway (formerly known as Fibre+ Gateway) and Ignite HomeConnect App (formerly known as BlueCurve Home App). They ensure wall-to-wall WiFi coverage in any home, and are easily activated on your home network using the Ignite HomeConnect 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.

WiFi Pods Features

Here are some of the key features of our WiFi Pods:

  • 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 Ignite WiFi Pods to get started!

  • Ignite HomeConnect App Integration
    Guided setup via the Ignite HomeConnect 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 (Ignite WiFi Pods (Gen 2) only)
    Allows for communication between the Ignite WiFi Gateway and the Ignite WiFi Pod to run separate from the pod and its connected devices for uninterrupted communication.

  • Multiple Ethernet Ports (Ignite WiFi Pods (Gen 2) only)
    With a second ethernet port, Ignite 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 Ignite WiFi Gateway and Ignite TV (formerly known as BlueCurve TV) equipment.


To use Ignite WiFi Pods, 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 Ignite WiFi Pods?

You can order Pods online at shaw.ca, or by contacting a Shaw agent. Ignite WiFi Pods (Gen 1) (formerly known as BlueCurve Pods) are available in a 3-Pack, and Ignite WiFi Pods (Gen 2) are available individually. You can rent a maximum of three 3-Packs (Gen 1) per account or up to six Ignite WiFi pods (Gen 2).
