Helium (HNT) blockchain founder Nova Labs has partnered with T-Mobile to launch a new 5G mobile service that will allow users to earn cryptocurrency.
Nova Labs and T-Mobile have signed a multi-year agreement under which the decentralized wireless communications company plans to launch the Helium Mobile service to expand services on the blockchain-based Helium 5G network.
The new agreement will give Helium Mobile subscribers access to both the Helium network and T-Mobile’s 5G network.
Nova Labs aims to create a decentralized web. The agreement with T-Mobile will provide our subscribers with 5G coverage throughout the country and allow us to offer mobile products and services using both networks.
Now the community will be able to quickly take advantage of the 5G infrastructure, as it will be able to participate in the development and use of the Helium network, especially in hard-to-reach places, said Amir Halim, CEO of Nova Labs and founder of Helium.
Helium’s mobile service is expected to launch early next year and provide coverage throughout the United States. Subscribers will have the opportunity to earn MOBILE tokens as a reward for transmitting data related to signal strength and the location of dead zones, and save money on cellular tariff plans.
The Helium Network launched in 2019 to support the Internet of Things (IoT). According to the company, there are more than 900,000 access points to this network in the world. More than 2,500 Helium hotspots with 5G service are located in almost 900 US cities.
