What if you could get 5G from your neighbor?
This is the vision that has motivated us from the early days of Helium — a distributed future where wireless infrastructure is built, maintained, and controlled by anyone and everyone, including your neighbor. Fast forward to the present, that vision is now becoming a reality just two years after officially launching the Helium Network in 2019 with over 256,000 Hotspots live across 22,000 cities and 144 countries.
Today we take another huge step in our mission with the announcement of a new Helium 5G partnership between DISH and Helium Inc. An innovator in the telco space, DISH understands the tremendous impact blockchain can make on the industry and the benefits of an $HNT incentive model. Through this partnership, DISH will be extending Helium 5G coverage with customers deploying their own compatible 5G Hotspots.
