Received your new router and need help getting connected?
Watch our video below on how to set up the fibre equipment in your home
Yes, you can use your own router if it supports Point-to-Point over Ethernet (PPPoE) protocol, but you will need to configure the router and you may need to seek advice from your router manufacturer on how to do this.
When setting up your own router you may be asked for a "PPPoE username" and "PPPoE password". The seethelight network does not use these parameters so you can enter anything you like in these fields however it is recommended that they are not left blank.
Another parameter you may be required to enter on the router is "MTU". seethelight recommend this be set to 1492 or 1500 bytes.
Please be aware, the router we issue to you when you sign up with us is fully supported by our technical team, and we are able to troubleshoot any issues you may experience with your router. If you do decide to use your own router we cannot always guarantee our remote diagnostics will be conclusive. Therefore, you should retain the router we provide when you sign-up to us, as you may need to re-install it for us to perform any required diagnostics.
If all equipment has been previously installed in your property, then seethelight aims to have your services live within 10 business days from the order date. If your fibre equipment has not been installed, seethelight aim to have your service live within 6 weeks, providing there are no unexpected delays.
Complete a contact form on the seethelight website https://www.seethelight.co.uk/contact or contact Customer Services on 0800 331 7638. If the Fibre to your property is not installed, the timescale could be up to 6 weeks. The specific timescale will vary on a property by property basis and is dependent on many factors, some outside of the control of seethelight.
There is a one off activation fee payable at point of sign up, of £50, in addition to a £8.95 router delivery charge.
seethelight do not provide a television service, however we currently have an offer on to receive free Sky Original TV Bundle for a year when you contract to any of seethelight's broadband packages or products. See www.seethelight.co.uk/sky for more details.
No. seethelight's bundled products include line rental or you can choose a voice service on its own. seethelight operate over brand new fibre-to-the-home networks owned by Open Fibre Networks Ltd.
OFNL's network is open access and there are currently four service providers who are in a position to offer telephone and broadband services. For more information please visit https://www.ofnl.co.uk/availableisps
Unfortunately seethelight only operate on fibre networks installed by OFNL.
If the required fibre equipment is in your property already then we can make the connection remotely and post your router. Otherwise we'll arrange for an engineer to attend and install the equipment required before you get started.
