Frankly speaking, and especially for me. We wanted to have something future proof, affordable for our customers. We wanted to have a reliable mesh Wi-Fi system, we wanted to have low latency, but we wanted to have a very nice designed router and wanted to keep the price low and affordable, and we also wanted to have the best experience we can, we can achieve. So we we ran a quite very long, very exhausting and extensive selection process to find the ideal partner who was able to provide the product and solution to meet our customers and our and our own requirements …” (2nd March 2021)
