Managing my package and optionsOpen Close
How can I buy an option or renew early?
Nothing could be simpler than purchasing an option or renewing early! Contact the konnect distributor who you bought your package from or visit a konnect store to place your order.
When will my option be activated?
If you bought the option with one of our packages, it will be activated at the same time as the package.
If you buy the option later, it will be activated as soon as you purchase it and it is added to the active package (this will take just a few minutes).
How can I check my plans and options?
To view your plans and options, please go to your My konnect Customer Portal. Under the ‘My services’ section, you can see your active plan, your options and your top-ups.
How do I change/renew my plan?

What if I run out of data?
If you have a konnect Simply package you may use up all your data before the plan is due for renewal. If this happens, simply contact your local konnect distributor or visit us in store to renew your package. We'll even give you an extra 20% of data for free if you renew early. If you find yourself running out of data regularly, you may wish to consider a konnect Simply package with more data or one of our konnect Unlimited packages.
How can I renew my package?
In all areas where Konnect operate, you can renew your package in a Konnect store or our partner stores.
In Cote d’Ivoire and The Democratic Republic of Congo you can also renew your package over the phone. Simply give us a call and we can guide your through the process and renew your package over the phone for you.
When can I renew my package?
You can renew your package at any point during or after your current plan, but only during our working hours. Depending on where you live you will either need to visit us in store or you can pay by Mobile Money. Even if you are paying by Mobile Money, you will need to make your renewal during working hours as you need to give us a call before making any payments so that we can activate your package or renewal for you.
How can I pay for my renewal?
We offer multiple payment methods in store. This includes Mobile Money if you are in Cote d’Ivoire or The Democratic Republic of Congo, but please remember to charge your wallet before visiting us.
In Cote d’Ivoire and The Democratic Republic of Congo you can also pay via Mobile Money when you give our customer service team a call. It’s important you call Konnect customer service to renew and don’t simply make a payment so that we can activate our renewal on our side. See our contact us page for phone numbers and opening times.
I’ve paid for my renewal, but haven’t received my plan?
The most likely reason for this would be if you have made a payment without calling into our customer service team. If so, we might have received your payment, but won’t know what you would like to use it for. That’s why it is important you don’t make payments unless you are speaking to us directly. When you are on the phone to us and make a payment, we are able to activate your renewal or new plan immediately.
If you have paid without calling us, you’ll need to give us a call now so that we can find your transaction and allocate it correctly.
See our contact us page for phone numbers and opening times.
I’ve made a payment to Konnect accidently?
If you send a payment to us by accident, we can arrange a refund for you. Simply give us a call so that we can look up the payment and arrange the refund for you. See our contact us page for phone numbers and opening times.

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.
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
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.

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 counted towards your priority data. This is between 10 pm 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 very cheaply.
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 here.
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 here.
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.
