This collaboration marks a significant milestone in MNTD.’s mission to change the wireless industry, aligning with the Helium Network’s vision of a decentralized and inclusive communication ecosystem.

MNTD., with its extensive experience in the wireless industry, has been a long-time supporter of the Helium Network. The company’s commitment to decentralization and its proven track record as the first third-party IoT Hotspot vendor for the Helium Network make it a reliable partner for the new Helium MOBILE network.

“The Helium Foundation is thrilled to continue working with the MNTD team as one of the most long-term aligned vendors in decentralized wireless. The MOBILE Network continues to see steady growth on both its supply and demand side over the last several months.” says Scott Sigel, COO of the Helium Foundation. “As MNTD broadens their scope beyond IOT into the MOBILE Network, community builders and users will be better served thanks to a larger vendor ecosystem including MNTD’s expanded product and service offering.”

Before the announcement, MNTD. submitted a Helium Improvement Proposal, HIP 117, positioning itself as the first-ever MOBILE Hotspot Vendor on the Helium network.
