Is Verizon CR1000A router with extenders a mesh network?

Hey community,

I have a Verizon CR1000A router with one Fios Extender and one WiFi mini extender right now.  I'm on the gigabit connection without phone or TV service. I'm curious if there's worth in me replacing this setup with a mesh router network (considering specifically the TP-LINK Deco EX75). Does this current setup count as a mesh network? I have the same SSID across all three devices, but the connection speeds aren't the best in all parts of my four-level town house. Any insight would be appreciated. 

Thanks!

The CR1000A plus extender would be considered a Mesh network. To improve connection speeds, make sure your extenders are using Coax or Ethernet to connect back to the CR1000A, which is something Verizon's extenders have as a built-in feature. If you are using wireless uplink anywhere, your wireless speeds will be penalized.
