Chateau 5G s a high-speed, dual-band home access point with LTE/5G support for really fast Internet anywhere, anytime. There are many options to choose from, depending on your needs: from CAT4 LTE up to the CAT20 LTE and the ultra-fast 5G. But LTE is not the only option Chateau also features 5 x Gigabit Ethernet ports and a full size USB port.

I'm glad this is finally available to the public, previously it was only for ISPs and you had to place bulk orders.

Sadly I still get no 5G coverage at home, so I cannot justify the purchase.

Do you have any idea of the pricing, please?

Thank you.

Let me know if you are going to get one, I think the 5G part is future proof

Isn't it weird that the device specs. stating only LTE Category   20 (2.0 Gbps Downlink, 200 Mbps Uplink) and make no mention of 5G? I know with carrier aggregation speeds go higher but would a LTE-A network get near 5G speeds?

I agree, from the brochure:
Code: [Select]
5G NSA (5.0 Gbps downlink, 650 Mbps uplink)
5G SA (4.2 Gbps downlink, 900 Mbps uplink)
LTE category 20 (2.0 Gbps downlink, 200 Mbps uplink)

Yet its WiFi 5 with Gigabit ethernet ports.  ::)  Not very future proof there.

Presumably being RouterOS it supports LAG/LACP though?

Yes, pretty much anything like that
