SETUP
Before using your Turbo Hub, please ensure you have the following:
•A Bell Turbo Hub Flex Plan
• Your Mobile Directory Number (MDN) or phone number
If you don’t have an account or a Turbo Hub Flex Plan or number, get
set up by speaking with a Bell account representative at 1-888-4MOBILE
(1-888-466-2453).
Choosing a location for your Turbo Hub
Always select an indoor location, preferably close to a window but avoiding
direct sunlight. A window location generally will give the best conditions for
accessing the Internet.
For best results, place the Turbo Hub away from microwave ovens and other
transmitters (e.g. security/alarm systems) as they can cause signal interference.
Using the stand provided, you can position your Turbo Hub upright by inserting
the tabs of the stand into the slot on the bottom of the Hub.
