Frequently Asked Questions
Free money? Whats the catch? This is too good to be true!
There is no catch! It’s 100% free to become a host. We assume all of the risk ($$$ and time to install) and in exchange we take a share of the profits.
Why does it need to be at my house/apartment?
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 us spread out the hotspots.
How much will I earn?
Our average host earns ~$100 each month for hosting a hotspot. However, earnings vary quite a bit from month to month, and location to location.
How much electricity will the hotspot use?
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.
How much of my Internet / Wi-Fi bandwidth will it use?
Expected bandwidth utilized by devices is 1-5 kb/s (very little).
Is it secure?
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.
Can I host more than one at my house?
No, hotspots need to be 900 feet (300 meters) apart from each other in order to receive maximum earnings and provide new coverage.
