Until recently, we only talked about 5G as an innovative idea, but now we see the result of purposeful work, ”says John Tully, co-owner and chairman of the technology company MikroTik, emphasizing that 5G capabilities are becoming more available on a daily basis, while opening up Latvia new opportunities for the export of technologies produced here.
Due to the limited quantity, the LMT 5G router is currently only available in Ādaži, it will be available to the rest of Latvia gradually, along with the development of the company’s 5G network.

The company states that the product is intended for worldwide distribution and, as a router manufactured in Europe and NATO, it has good market potential.
