Service degradation after upgrade?

After upgrading to Panoramic 500 mbps from old style Cox provided router with 100mbps service, the internet reception in other rooms of the house is now much(!) worse than before the upgrade. I'm spending more money each month for less service!!!  Probably curable with PODS (yet more cost).  Proceed with caution if upgrading to Panoramic service from other Cox routers.

    I had the same problem.  I upgraded to Gigablast several months ago and the Panoramic router dropped my wifi speeds to below what they were before I upgraded.  I bridged it and connected my Netgear Orbi as the router and it made all the difference.  I agree; the Panoramic router IS JUNK.

    Cox is the worst service ever you can have.
