In order to provide coverage and receive earnings each hotspot needs to be at least 900 feet apart. Having two or more hotspots in the same house doesn’t provide any additional coverage.

This is why we need hosts (you) to help deployment companies spread out the hotspots.

Earnings vary quite a bit from month to month, and location to location. You can estimate your earnings with our Radio Frequency Simulation portal by clicking here.

There is nearly zero cost. The Hotspot uses a small amount of power, roughly 5W at peak. This is less than a standard LED light bulb. In a city like San Francisco, it will cost you roughly $0.48/month.

Expected bandwidth utilized by devices is 1-5 kb/s (very little).

The short answer is yes. However, as with all devices connected to the internet (smart TV’s, Alexa’s, computers, phones, etc…) there is some level of inherent risk. Please check the security article that Helium released here for more information on the security measures they take to keep your network safe.

No, hotspots need to be 900 feet apart from each other in order to receive maximum earnings and provide new coverage.  Encourage nearby friends and neighbors to apply. The stronger the network, the more you earn.
