MikroTik CHR Licensing

The CHR has 4 license levels:

  • free
  • p1 perpetual-1($45)
  • p10 perpetual-10($95)
  • p-unlimited perpetual-unlimited($250)

60-day free trial license is available for all paid license levels. To get the free trial license, you should have an account on Mikrotik.com as all license management is done there.

Perpetual is a lifetime license (buy once, use forever). It is possible to transfer a perpetual license to another CHR instance. A running CHR instance will indicate the time when it has to access the account server to renew its license. If the CHR instance will not be able to renew the license it will behave as if the trial period has ran out and will not allow an upgrade of RouterOS to a newer version, as well as disable some cloud functionality.

In case you experience low speeds of internet traffic via CHR, please check what license level you are using.

"MikroTik CHR - Basic" and "MikroTik CHR - Standard" comes with free license level, which has a limitation up to 1 mbps upload speed per interface! Extended license should be purchased and installed by the user itself.
