Hi @amr.elsabaa 

Welcome to this customer-helps-customer community where I am also a customer.
This is an interesting question: the users of the SmartWifi Pods will express their preference for these pods. And the users of the tplink deco m4 will express their preference there.

The advantage of the SmartWifi Pods is that you can rent them from Ziggo; if they don’t work in your specific situation, you can return them. I use the SmartWifi Pods myself, I have a subscription of 350/35 and I have 350/35 on three floors. So they work perfectly and they are rather easy to install.
But more comments will probably follow with different opinions.

Thanks very much for your reply , it's really helpful as you said it can reach 350/35 in all your floors , 
meanwhile,i have already renting tplink deco m4 and my subscription is 1 Giga , but the max "actual" speed that the main deco which is connected by cable to modem is 500 mega only , and the speed in the other rooms are 100 and sometimes less than this 😞 ..

Hi. I'm also a customer (well.. almost). But I'm a user of a couple of Decos (X60) for ~1 year, so may share my experience and the result of a couple of tests.
When Decos are connected wirelessly in a real apartment (a couple of walls between them) the maximum speed between them was 400-600 mbit/s. Quite the same for Deco's wireless clients (MacBooks, to be more specific). Just to be clear: the wireless connection may have a lot of "moving parts", once I was getting quite a terrible connection just between a deco and a laptop just because the laptop was up for more than 2 months, and a reboot fixed it.

The best result when the laptop is wirelessly connected to deco in my experience is ~700 mbit/s. 

I'm not using (and don't plan to use) SmartWifi Pods, so cannot say anything about them.

Fortunately, you have rented your current TP link deco m4. I have no experience with these TP Links myself, but there will be others who have experience with them and may be able to help you. In another case, you can always do a comparative test: rent a SmartWifi Pod and try if it works better. And then you send back the pod that you like least.

Anyway, I think it matters whether the pods are connected wirelessly to the modem or with a network cable (minimum Cat.6). And I myself have more confidence in a wired connection.
