T-Mobile is partnering with Helium (HNT) founders Nova Labs to support the launch of a new 5G cellular service that will enable users cryptocurrency can earn.
Nova Labs and T-Mobile have signed a multi-year agreement as the decentralized wireless communications company plans to launch Helium Mobile to expand services on the Helium 5G network, which is based on its Blockchain-Technology builds.
Under the terms of the agreement, Helium Mobile subscribers will have access to both the Helium network and T-Mobile’s 5G network.
Says Amir Haleem, CEO of Nova Labs and Founder of Helium,
“Nova Labs is committed to building a decentralized network. Our new agreement with T-Mobile offers our subscribers nationwide 5G coverage and allows us to offer mobile products and services that use both networks. 5G infrastructure can become accessible to everyone much faster by empowering the community to help build and use the Helium network, especially in hard-to-reach places.”
According to Dan Thygesen, senior vice president of T-Mobile Wholesale, Helium Mobile is making strides in an area of the telecommunications industry that is still in its infancy.
“T-Mobile is excited to support Nova Labs’ innovation in this new crypto-powered realm by enabling their mobility on the largest, fastest, and most reliable nationwide 5G network in the nation.”
Helium’s cellular service is expected to launch early next year and will provide nationwide coverage in the United States. Subscribers have the opportunity to earn MOBILE tokens as a reward for sharing their data related to the quality of signal strength and location of dead spots and save money on their cellular plans.
The Helium Network was launched in 2019 to support the Internet of Things (IoT). According to the company, there are more than 900,000 hotspots worldwide. There are more than 2,500 Helium hotspots with 5G service in nearly 900 US cities.
