    It looks like Verizon fios is now providing a new wifi 6 router with fios service.
    https://www.verizon.com/home/fios-fastest-internet/ (scroll down to near the bottom of the page)

    Will we get the upgraded router to replace the old ones we have?

    What needs to be done to get upgraded?

    Good question to ask the Board at next Virtual Board meeting.

    I'm hoping they monitor this forum.

    Not specific to SouthernWalk... but FIOS in the past wouldn't proactively upgrade equipment. I wouldn't be holding my breath...

    Previously I would hope to get a promo that included a service upgrade and hope to get the new device in the package deal.

    I doubt they will with a current contract in place and it probably would cost Verizon a lot to swap everything out. I wouldn’t hold my breath on that. It would depend upon what’s in the contract the HOA has with them.

    I have no idea what's in the contract and I believe it is hard to see the contract. I would like to believe there is some sort of tech upgrade clause. In any event, it would be nice to know.

    I found this, it says the new router costs $15 to rent, I think the routers we have are $10 to rent. Wifi extenders are $10 to rent.

    a month ago i called our special SW # and asked about the new home router. they said no problem and shipped it- it was here in two days. i went to UPS in Broadlands next to Marco's and shipped back the quantum router. there is no extra rent for the home router versus the quantum router. performance is a bit better, especially with wifi 6 very close to it.

    A little off topic - but does anyone know when the 2 year contract between Southern Walk & Verizon ends? Thanks.
