Ordered Fibre To The Premises (FTTP)? Then you’ll need to connect it to your Openreach modem (also known as an Optical Network Terminator or ONT) using your hub’s WAN input port.

To help make setting up as easy as possible, read our article to prepare for your engineer visit. Then let your engineer take care of everything. Just have your hub ready for when they arrive.

If you’ve ordered a Hybrid Connect device, then you can get connected and online straight away. Just plug in your hub, following the steps below and add your device as shown on the packaging or read the setting up Hybrid Connect page.
