Maximizing Rewards: Optimal Placement Strategies for Your Helium 5G Radio in 2023

It is essential to carefully plan out your Helium 5G deployment strategy.

Maximizing Rewards: Optimal Placement Strategies for Your Helium 5G Radio in 2023

After listening to in-depth discussions with Boris(GM of Helium 5G) and the mobile working group, the deployment strategies for Helium 5G are undergoing a transformation. The team has identified a specific focus area - high-density regions with significant slow-moving traffic - for achieving the desired outcomes. Although there is no definitive answer regarding the location of these areas, we have some general concepts on selecting optimal spots to maximize 5G rewards.

The reason for targeting these areas is sound. Dense urban areas pose a challenge for larger carriers like T-Mobile and Verizon to provide satisfactory coverage, resulting in slower speeds for their customers. Helium's strategy of targeting these areas is a smart move, as it allows the larger carriers to offload some of their customers to Helium's radios, reducing their reliance on their own larger radios. This approach saves them money and generates revenue for Helium through offloading. It's a mutually beneficial arrangement, resulting in a win-win for all parties involved.

Additionally, there will be designated areas that offer greater rewards compared to other locations. These areas are characterized by high data consumption, although their specific locations have yet to be disclosed. However, we can exercise our own judgment to speculate on potential areas. It's been rumoured that these boosted areas will offer up to five times the rewards compared to non-boosted areas, although this information is not confirmed.

Our initial selection is busy beaches, such as Miami Beach, which we believe have the potential to be boosted areas. Why, you might ask? Consider this: have you ever connected to WiFi while at the beach? It's unlikely, as it's not a typical location for WiFi connectivity. Additionally, many individuals enjoy live-streaming their beach experiences and these areas typically see slow-moving foot traffic with visitors spending extended periods of time there. Given these factors, we believe that popular beaches will serve as an excellent location for maximizing 5G rewards.

Transportation hubs, such as train stations, buses, and subways, are also prime locations for boosted areas. Typically, individuals are not connected to WiFi networks while in transit, making these locations ideal. Furthermore, it's important to consider that people waiting for transportation are often consuming data on their mobile devices, either browsing social media or streaming videos on platforms like YouTube or Netflix.

An ideal location to deploy radios is a bustling downtown street, where people are constantly on the move - either walking to the next store or commuting to work. The streets of New York City serve as a perfect example, with countless individuals engrossed in consuming data on their mobile devices. Essentially, any city with a lively downtown area would be a suitable choice for radio deployment.

Lastly, we would like to highlight the potential of commercial areas like grocery stores, strip malls, and schools as excellent sites for 5G radio deployment. These areas tend to see high volumes of foot traffic and slower movement, making them well-suited for keeping people connected to your radios. Although WiFi could be available at some of these locations, most consumers do not connect to these networks and stay on their mobile data.

Although there are numerous potential sites to install these radios, our focus is on the most strategic areas. While we may not have listed them all, we are prioritizing areas with a concentration of people who may not have access to Wi-Fi, resulting in slower internet speeds. These areas are ideal for our radios, as they can provide a solution to the lack of connectivity.
