[SailfishDevel] How can I check if there's internet connection already on? To avoid extra connection request dialogs

Hi All

I have some data that needs to be communicated over network, but can wait
for a while: updating feeds in the background, synching high scores,
sending stats, etc.

These things need to be communicated at some point, but can easily be
delayed without any big harm and I don't want to pop a multitude of
"Connect me!" dialogs in front of the users without much need.

Can I somehow check whether internet connection is already established
and/or monitor connection state to notice when it's on?

Cheers,
Artem.

P.S.
In MeeGo (and I think in iOS nowadays too) there was a way to tell to OS
that you want to communicate over net "some time soon" and OS was bundling
such requests to happen together. There isn't anything like that in
Sailfish OS, is there?
