We founded Helium to build an open, affordable, and secure global wireless network owned and operated by everyday people: The People’s Network. Toward this goal, building out an expansive network infrastructure was the first step in our journey. And we knew it wouldn’t happen overnight.
We’re just three years into this, which is a relatively short time period when taken in the context of our ultimate goal. Still, we’ve already seen successful use cases for both large and small scale demonstrations of what a people-powered Network community can become.
Recently, however, questions have come up about how the Network works, progress on the Network and what’s next, and I’d like to address these concerns directly.
