New Network. New Possibilities.

Affordable connectivity without complexity

The People’s Network enables us to connect with our world in ways never before possible by delivering secure, ubiquitous and affordable wireless coverage. The People’s Network is built for internet of things devices to send small quantities of data, not for smartphones or computers that need to transfer large amounts of data.

Join The People’s Network

In minutes anyone can plug in a Helium Hotspot, provide wireless coverage, and start earning Helium tokens, a new cryptocurrency on the Helium Blockchain. The Hotspot delivers connectivity for devices and requires the same amount of power as an LED light bulb (12W).

You earn Helium by mining for providing wireless coverage or when devices connect to your Hotspot.

Network Highlights

The People’s Network empowers and rewards anyone to provide connectivity for a new class of low-power, IoT devices.

Owned and Operated by You

Rapid coverage can be deployed virtually anywhere by anyone in minutes by plugging in a Hotspot and onboarding with a smartphone.

LongFi – 200x farther than WiFi

With the LongFi open, wireless protocol devices can connect over miles of range, and a typical city is covered with only 50 to 100 Hotspots.

Multi-layer Security

Network traffic is encrypted from device to cloud, and the Helium Blockchain is used to onboard and validate Hotspots and devices.

No Cellular Data Plans

Send device data for a fraction the cost of cellular, without needing sim cards or ever paying overage fees.

Years of Battery Life

Since LongFi is optimized for low power consumption and there’s no need for cellular, devices on the network can last for years on a single battery.

Open Source. Always.

The People’s Network is completely community-owned and operated by its participants, with all core technology available under open source licenses.

In Good Company

"With Helium... owners will always know where their pets are even over miles of range, without needing to replace batteries for years."

Greg Gotts

"Based on our experience working with Helium, their new peer-to-peer wireless network shows great promise to enable new types of connected devices to provide more and better information for our community.”
