Today the Helium Network, also known as “The People’s Network”, is live with 28,000+ Hotspots in over 3,800 cities worldwide. There are also another 200,000+ Hotspots on backorder, from a flourishing ecosystem of Hotspot manufacturers, that will soon be deployed. The current Helium Network is well on its way to becoming the largest and fastest-growing global network with a strong forecast for over 600,000 Hotspots in the next 18 months. The best part, the accelerated growth is almost all community-driven around the world. It’s been quite the journey, one that I’m particularly proud of, but today marks the next chapter in what is sure to be an important milestone in the Helium Network: the path to 5G.
