Do not buy without testing - try today free of charge!

For a period of four weeks - you have an opportunity of a free trial (a demo) of the viaGIA high-speed Internet. The only thing you have to do is to activate this trial directly from our telecommunication socket in your apartment. Connect the attached data cable to your computer and try out our viaGIA Internet, without engagement and in the comfort of your home. In this demo mode, the viaGIA Comfort tariff is available for you.

If no service has been (or is) used in the socket where you wish to activate the demo (e.g. viaPhone telephone service or viaTV television service), just insert the data cable into it and connect the computer. Here you will find a detailed procedure:

  • Switch on your computer and connect the attached data cable. Insert the other end into any of the telecommunication sockets* in your apartment.
  • Open an internet browser (e.g. Internet Explorer), in the Address line enter and press the Enter key.
  • Your computer is connected to the opening homepage of the viaHome services. Here you will find additional information and you may activate the demo of the Internet service viaGIA.
  • The trial period may be activated without any delay. Upon completion of information, free access to the full internet is activated within 15 minutes. If you plan not to stay in your new apartment at the beginning permanently, we recommend you postponing the activation until you have sufficient time to try out the service – after a permanent move-in. You may use the free trial (demo) for a period of four weeks as from the date of activation.

If any service has been (is) active in the socket already, activation of the demo proceeds directly on the user’s Customer Portal:

  • Switch on your computer and connect the data cable to the computer. Insert the other end of the data cable into the respective telecommunication socket in your apartment*.
  • Open an Internet browser (e.g. Internet Explorer), in the Address line, enter and press the Enter key.
  • The computer will connect to your secured website on the viaGIA Customer Portal containing a list of the services. If the demo has not been activated yet, the home site will read “Activate DEMO viaGIA” (in Czech: Spustit DEMO viaGIA), and you should click on it. Subsequently, you will be redirected to the list of sockets in your apartment, in which you will choose the one, on which you wish to activate the demo. The demo should be activated within 15 minutes.

Verification is performed through the security private certificate, which needs to be installed (if you don`t have the certificate, ask our Contact centre for it). Upon activation, information on opening the Demo service will be displayed for you.

Demo may be activated for every customer only once.

* For the purpose of the demo operation, one socket is activated, namely the one, in which you connected the cable; in the course of the demo operation, it is not possible to change the socket (it is possible only within the LAN network of your apartment – on condition that you have a LAN apartment; for further details see the information on the home LAN in Download).

It is possible to connect nearly every standard computer, which is currently on the market (although the older ones as well) and which has a network interface (connector RJ-45 – compatible with the attached cable). It is possible to use practically all operating systems (e.g. Windows, Linux, MacOS, etc.). The computer should have the DHCP function activated (automatic allocation of an IP address – in Windows, this function is activated as a default value). For the purpose of a higher security of the computer preventing a possible attack from the Internet, we recommend using a firewall and an anti-virus application.

Note: For technical reasons, the free trial is available only for the viaGIA service.
