Why Develop on the People’s Network?

Helium offers a ubiquitous, highly-secure and decentralized network for IoT devices, at a fraction of the cost of its competitors.

The People’s Network utilizes an unlicensed 915 MHz spectrum, and enables developers to build low-power devices using off-the-shelf components, pre-certified LoRa modules and onboard them frictionlessly.
