Find information on BlueCurve Pods including features and eligibility. BlueCurve 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 help eliminate areas where WiFi coverage drops or is weak, also known as "dead spots". They are designed to provide extended, more consistent coverage throughout your entire home. They are not intended to boost your Internet speed, or to provide the maximum speed of your Internet tier.

How do I know if I would benefit from using BlueCurve Pods?
If you have rooms in your home with poor WiFi connectivity due to a weak or inconsistent WiFi signal, then BlueCurve Home 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. They are not intended to provide the maximum speed of your Internet speed tier throughout your home.
For example, if you have a speed tier that provides download speeds up to 150 Mbps, Pods will not provide that speed throughout your home. Rather, the Pods will help you connect in areas where you could not previously connect to your in-home WiFi.
How do I get BlueCurve Pods?
You can order Pods online at shaw.ca, by contacting a Shaw agent, or by visiting us a Shaw retail location. Pods are available in a 3-Pack at $10 per month. You can rent a maximum of three 3-Packs per account for a total of nine Pods. Pods are not available for purchase.
