Thank you for choosing Brightspeed for your internet service! If you are providing your own modem for your service, there are a few things you'll need to know about installation and activation.
Important: If you have not already done so, please verify that your modem is compatible with your new service. If you are re-using a newer Brightspeed modem, it will most likely work. To be sure, check our compatibility page and then contact us with any questions.
If you are re-using a Brightspeed modem that you already have:
If you are using a non-Brightspeed modem, you will need to chat with us to get credentials (PPoE, vpi/vci, and password), which you will manually enter to your modem using the GUI.
You won't be able to connect your modem without these credentials.
Note about line activation: Your line should be activated no later than 7 p.m. on your service start date, at which point you can connect your modem.
