I have been using a Hitron CGNM-2250 WiFi Modem that I had set to bridge to a Ubiquiti Amplifi Wi-Fi in an effort to get greater, consistent speeds from my 150 Mbps service. For whatever reason I never received advertised speeds before or after I made the change. As I own the Hitron and am renting a Hitron for the cottage, I decided to sign up for a new 2yr value plan that froze the cost of all my existing services for 2 years (except my movie add-ons). Shaw froze the cost of the now Internet 300 at $88/month (a loyalty promotion they gave me last year) and sent a tech out with the new XB6 modem, now being marketed as the Shaw BlueCurve Gateway. I'll be taking my old Hitron to the cottage for my seasonal 75Mbps service.
After talking withe the tech I learned that it uses the same technology at the Ubiquiti Amplifi (and others I'm sure) that 'blends' the 2.4 and 5.0G networks to give you the strongest possible signal at all times. Well, all I can say is so far so good. I am actually reaching speeds of 150Mbps over my WiFi and presumably the 300+ over the ethernet (I only have my A/V Receiver directly connected).
He also mentioned that today was the launch of the BlueCurve Gateway and BlueCurve Pods (Mesh Extenders) and the BlueCurve Home App to manage your Wi-Fi.
