Building the largest, most useful 5G network is a goal of the MOBILE subDAO, but not all locations are created equal. Although network builders are able to set up radios anywhere, it’s important that these radios are deployed in areas that will have real usage. This is where Service Providers, like Helium Mobile, can help guide the “shape” of the network as it deploys more widely over the coming months and years.
Although the logistics of this functionality are still in development and we believe that a governance change needs to be proposed to support this economic change, we believe that Service Providers should be able to influence where radios could be deployed by increasing rewards for particular geographic areas depending on where their customers are frequently using service. By boosting these areas, the demand side of the network (real subscribers) can meet the supply side of small cell deployers.
