  2. Will you have inventory, ready to ship, as soon as you start taking orders?

Yup im also intrested how this will work ?


I am also very interested in the SenseCAP M1 gateway.

Hope you had a wonderful Dragon Boat festival.

We at MIIATech would love to be the first to test this product for future sale and user feedback. We already work with Nebra and looking for more partnerships.
Anyway, welcome to Helium! The best community in the world.

Hey guys,

really looking foward to purchasing 1 of your hotspots.
As your European distribution is through DISTRELEC, who don’t ship to Germany unfortunately, will you be hacing alternative distributors for Europe, especially Germany?

Kind regards,

EDIT: Nevermind, found their Germany specific website ^^

I am from India and i strongly need 4 devices on the first order, so which frequency i should choose?
