I’m new to Lumos’ services.
For a seamless transition, we recommend you install your new Lumos service before disconnecting your current internet plan. This way you can ensure you have uninterrupted internet access during the switch.
Yes, it is possible to set up your internet before moving into your new place. However, please note that internet service providers typically require your physical presence for activation and installation purposes. Therefore, you will need access to the property in order to complete the process. These factors mean the best time for activation is usually the day of your move-in.
You can place your router anywhere in your new home. Unlike cable internet, Lumos ensures your home Wi-Fi network has a strong signal in every room, no matter how far you are from the router. To get the most out of your Wi-Fi signal, place your router in a clear and accessible space, away from large appliances which can emit electronic interference.
Yes, if you move to a condo or apartment, you will likely need to obtain permission from building management or your homeowners’ association to hook up your Lumos Fiber Internet. Check with management or association leadership to confirm.
Yes, you must be home for your fiber installation appointment because our installer will need access to both the outside and inside of your home to complete your installation.
Lumos is building our fiber optic network across North Carolina and Virginia, with future expansion into South Carolina, to bring faster internet to local residents and businesses. Visit our New Construction page to learn where we’re going next and sign up for updates on availability in your area.
