How to run a speed test
First, open a Web Browser (Firefox, Internet explorer, Google Chrome, Safari). Next type https://speedprobe.konnect.com into the address bar and press enter.
Note: This site will only work on a Konnect Satellite Service. We need you to use this speed test as it will provide us accurate results for the latency as well as the speed.
Give the test time to run and you will see the results for the latency, download speed and the upload speed.
If your speeds are lower than expected, we recommend turning your modem off and on again. We know it sounds like an IT cliché, but it really can help. To do this, you need to unplug the modem or switch it off at the wall, then plug it back in or switch it on again. Once you’ve done this, Power it back on and wait for the connection to reconnect.
When this is done, you will see:
Power – On
System – On
Transmit – Flashing
Receive – Flashing
WiFi – On or Off (depending on your settings)
Please then run the steps above again to refresh the results of your speed test.
If the speed is still lower than expected, please give us a call so that we can investigate the issue.

If reducing the video quality you are streaming in does not resolve the issue, please run a speed test and get in touch with our customer services team so they can investigate the issue for you.

Making the most of your service
How to schedule downloads overnight
To make the most of your priority data, we recommend running major downloads overnight when your usage won't be deducted from your priority data. This is between 1 am and 6 am. But don't worry, you don't need to stay up to do this, you can schedule it to take place automatically. There are lots of free tools available online to manage your downloads. We’ve found a neat and up-to-date list of the 10 Best Download Managers for Windows on beebom.com and recommend you take a look. For Mac users, there is a similarly handy list of the Best Download Managers for Mac OS.
All have their pro’s and con’s and we’re not affiliated with any of these providers, but if you find yourself frustrated by slow downloads or needing large files that you could download in advance, these tools could take a load off your daytime Internet use and let your downloads happen when you’re not in a hurry
How to download video and TV overnight
Make the most of your priority data by downloading the latest series overnight and save your priority data for when you need it during the day. Most streaming services allow you to download content on their apps which you can then cast to your TV. Casting is when you send content from your phone or tablet to your TV. You'll need an extra piece of equipment that is connected to your TV, but these can be bought for less than 10€.
We also recommend PlayOn, which is a paid-for app that allows you to download films and TV shows to watch later. With this tool you set content to download at a set time so you don't need to stay up to set it running and your content will be ready for you the very next day. You can find more information on their website.
How to schedule updates overnight
Not only is it frustrating when your computer starts an update at the beginning of the day when you're trying to get to work, but it eats into your priority data unnecessarily. Instead, we recommend scheduling updates overnight. Here's how.
The first thing to do check the active hours settings on your computor. These are the times when you typically use your device and when it shouldn't automatically be restarted for updates. On Windows you can check and update these settings by clicking on the Start menu icon and selecting “Settings”. Then click on “Update & Security”. The “Windows Update” screen displays by default. One of your choices is to Change active hours. The current times set are displayed directly below and you can modify them by clicking on that choice and following the steps.
If you want to check for pending updates, simply follow the same steps as above. The “Windows Update” screen will show if you have updates available. You can then manually set these to update. To schedule updates for later, Microsoft, have a detailed explanation.
It's less simple to set a Mac to update overnight and for a major update it might be worth staying up a little later and setting it running overnight. To prevent your Mac from updating automatically, you need to open System Preferences and click on App Store. You'll then see the options for automatic updates on macOS. To disable automatic updates, click on the tick mark next to Automatically check for updates to uncheck it.

What payment methods can I use for my monthly payments?
We would like you to provide us with your SEPA (IBAN) details so that we can take your payment automatically every month. This will save you the trouble of thinking about paying for your internet service as the payment will simply happen each month.
I've paid, but my invoice is not yet showing as paid in the customer portal.
If this happens, it's nothing to worry about, it can take a few days for our systems to update. If it is still showing as unpaid a full week after you made the payment, there could be an issue, so please get in touch with us. Otherwise this is nothing to worry about.
Why do I see a name other than Konnect on my bank statement?
Konnect is using a Payment Service Provider named ADYEN. This might be the name you will see on your bank statement. Please don't worry, this is completely normal.

As per our Anti-Fraud policy, a pre-authorization might be sent to you (1 EUR/GBP/USD) to verify your payment method.
Don't worry, nothing will be debited from your bank account.

Refunds will be made to the payment method used to sign up to your Konnect subscription unless you request otherwise.
I received a suspension notification, what is it about?
If you have overdue invoices, we may need to suspend your account. This means you will not be able to use the service.
This suspension does not mean we've terminated your contract, it is only temporary until you settle your account with us.
How can I end my suspension?
If you have been suspended, please first check your emails.
Make sure you haven't missed any of our payment emails with a link where you can pay. If you have, please use the link to pay your outstanding balance.
