Since there is absolutely no support of 802.11k in RouterOS, answer is pretty clear - Routerboards are not compliant.

Any news from Mikrotik?

Wifi4EU completed (in April 2019) the second call and other thousands of municipality will receive their voucher..

This is a very very big opportunity for Mikrotik

They will need years to get close to competitors

I think MT has lost its train.......
Or it's not in their plans, maybe.

802.11k is just 11 years old. Take some time to implement :)

I don't think MikroTik (and Ubiquiti and other lowcost WiFi equipment providers) are interested in "big money" things like subsidized municipal WiFi.
They will not get such contracts anyway, and those that do get them generally deliver equipment that is a little more sturdy. At its price, of course.

I'm using mikrotik only as hotspot controller, and Aruba for APs, they are expensive, but work way better than any mikrotik ever will.

Yeap, I agree. In my country at least, it is certain that the job will go to the company with the worst price and the most kickbacks to the politicians and other public sector parasites that will push for them (ignoring of course better and cheaper solutions).

hello, tell me pls, the snippet from ue works on your mtik?
Ofc it works, you just need to unblock it in walled garden so it can load before user is authenticated to hotspot. Also their default snipet has typos different " and ' check that.

It is just a different world. A world that requires certifications, guarantees, physical quality, support, etc etc.
The reason that the equipment that is compliant with that is so much more expensive is that it costs money to do all that.
MikroTik WiFi is just for hobbyist and wannabe 1-man WISP, and maybe some small office usage in low-income countries.
Projects like municpal WiFi are another market segment. You don't want MikroTik to be in there or it will become just as expensive as the big guys.
