Why is satellite Internet more expensive than mobile or wired internet?
Each technology has its own specifics, advantages and disadvantages. The advantage of satellite internet is that it does not require any special infrastructure, such as mobile or wired internet. All you need is mains electricity. Even in case of lack of power supply, there is an option of mobile satellite communication.
There are however some extra costs associated with the connection as you need special equipment to connect. Satellite internet users need to pay for the equipment and the cost of the tariff plans themselves. We regularly hold promotions on the cost of equipment together with our partners and agents to make the service more accessible.
The cost of our satellite tariff plans has decreased significantly in recent years, while the speeds have increased, but it is not possible to achieve an identical cost with mobile internet.
Advice from Konnect! We strive to offer our customers the best and regularly hold promotions for both new and existing customers, form additional options and new tariff plans. Join our social networks to be aware of all offers!
Why is the satellite internet equipment so discounted?
We periodically conduct subsidy programs for new subscribers together with our partners and agents to make the product more affordable.
What is unlimited satellite broadband?
With unlimited tariffs from Konnect you get access to the internet without limiting the amount of data you can use. However, if many customers are using the service at the same time, the speed is adjusted so that everyone can use the service with optimal performance. Depending on which tariff plan you choose, we provide you with a certain amount of priority data, which is protected from these speed adjustments.
Advice from Konnect! Unlimited tariffs for individuals on the satellite "Express-AMU1" come with an additional option – the "Turbo-button". This allows you to get the maximum speed on your current unlimited tariff for 3 extra hours. Additional services on other unlimited tariffs are in development and will be available soon.
In addition, all unlimited tariff plans for individuals have weekend tariff from 49 to 9 rubles. ("Weekends" and "Holidays"), which can be connected in the low season.
Are there any restrictions on the volume of traffic on unlimited tariffs?
All our unlimited tariff plans have no traffic limits. This means that you can't run out of data. Each tariff also includes a set amount of priority data when your speeds will be highest: 15 GB for the tariff plans "Internet unlimited 10" and "Internet unlimited 10+", 25 GB for "Internet unlimited 20" and "Internet unlimited 20+" and 50 GB for "Internet unlimited 40" and "Internet unlimited 40+". To get the maximum speed, it is important to choose a tariff with sufficient priority data necessary for your needs.
What upload and download speeds can I expect?
Our satellite internet offers speeds comparable to fixed broadband and even ultra-fast broadband. Our fastest tariff plans come with download speeds up to 100 Mbps. With our unlimited tariffs, the maximum possible speed is 40 Mbps.
All our tariff plans allow you to use the internet for any purpose: browsing the web, sending e-mail, social networks, streaming music and videos, etc. The speed can vary and depends on multiple factors. If a large number of subscribers are using the network, this may affect your browsing speed.
If you notice that your connection is slow, you may want to switch to a higher tariff plan by leaving a request in your customer portal or by contacting the support service of the agent or dealer who you purchased the equipment from.
