Konnected is a small start-up company offering a waterproof, fully self-contained, plug-and-play internet module tailored to the marine & RV market.
They also offer software that creates a captive portal with the ability to monetize the WiFi service that you provide to others. Konnected handles all of the technical details, money collection and revenue - and shares it with you. You are able to control access times, bandwidth and data limits for each user.
The device ships pre-configured and can be purchased outright or financed. If you purchase the device outright, you have the option to suspend your data service for up to 6 months at a time. The Konnected Router is a completely remotely managed network device.
