- Unlimited data, text and talk that is almost 8X more affordable than the average U.S. cell bill
- New Outdoor Helium Mobile Hotspot helps communities expand the Helium Network: Mobile service backed by people-powered Hotspots and the nation’s largest 5G network
Helium Mobile has launched its no-contract nationwide $20/month phone plan with unlimited data, talk, and text. In the last year, major carriers have quietly reduced data limits, increased contracts tied to phone financing, and raised pricing. With a bring-your-own-device policy, Helium Mobile’s subscribers have the freedom to keep or change their phone or service when they want, putting control back in the hands of customers.
“Traditional carriers think they have Americans over a barrel. At Helium Mobile, we believe that cell phones are an essential service and unlimited data, text and calls are table stakes,” said Amir Haleem, CEO of Nova Labs, parent company of Helium Mobile. “We are tired of carriers that hide high subscription rates, roaming and additional data fees behind free phone upgrades that lock you into years of expensive plans. Americans deserve better.”
Designed for popular apps like YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, or Snap and people who want unlimited data to post, stream and game, Helium Mobile’s mission is to bring affordable, reliable cell service to Americans.
With rising inflation, the average American spends $157/month on their cellular plan, making an essential utility cost prohibitive for many families. Helium Mobile’s $20/month plan finally makes unlimited service available for everyone.
Reliable Nationwide Coverage, Data Privacy and the Opportunity to Earn Rewards:
- A new kind of coverage: Helium Mobile’s service combines the people-powered Helium Network and the nation’s largest 5G network.*
- It’s your business: Subscribers want service and that’s what Helium Mobile provides. No strings. Your data will never be sold to third parties.
- Rewards: Subscribers that help map Helium Network coverage earn MOBILE rewards which they can use to pay for their phone plan.
Fed Up with Coverage Dead Zones? Be a Network Builder With Outdoor and Indoor Helium Mobile Hotspots.
Helium Mobile supports people-powered coverage and enables customers, not carriers, to become network owners and operators. As with other industries like Airbnb or Uber, when you reduce monopolies and let customers be owners, service improves, costs go down and everyone benefits. This is one of the ways Helium Mobile reduces costs and improves coverage where it matters most - to our customers.
Subscribers have been held hostage by expensive coverage that ties them to one or two potential carriers at their homes. With Helium Mobile Hotspots, subscribers can own and set up ‘mini cell towers’. Dead zones can become a thing of the past when anyone can become a builder and set up a hotspot to expand the network for themselves and the community.
Starting today, the Outdoor Helium Mobile Hotspot™($499) and Indoor Helium Mobile Hotspot™ ($249) are available for purchase nationwide. To learn more and order a hotspot, visit hellohelium.com.

Questions? Read Our FAQ.
Why is Miami’s plan $5 and the nationwide plan $20?
Miami is our pilot launch region and subscribers from that region will continue to have access to our $5 plan. $20 is our nationwide plan.
Any plans to expand that $5 plan elsewhere?
Miami is a pilot and will continue at the $5/month rate. Users will be legacied in and new subscribers in the designated area are still eligible for the $5 plan. Nationwide, it will be the same service and offering at the $20 price point.
Do these new plans still rely on the Helium Mobile Network?
Our service is backed by the people-powered Helium Mobile Network and the nation’s largest 5G network.
Why is your $20 plan better than others in the market?
Other plans have data caps which trigger hefty fees if you go over. Our plan is unlimited data, talk and text.
Subscribers that help map the Helium Mobile Network earn MOBILE rewards, which they can use to pay for their phone plan.
You mentioned not having a cap on data, but the fine print says the plan could throttle you after 30 GB of data.
To put it in context, 30GB of data allows you to stream 120 hours, play 750 hours of music or scroll through 10 hours of social media every day, all month.
You will still have unlimited data after using 30GB, the speed may be reduced but you will not have any additional fees.
Is Dynamic Coverage a differentiator?
Dynamic coverage means that Americans have reliable coverage anywhere in the US with our Hotspot coverage combined with the nation’s largest 5G network.
Essentially, you get great coverage with unlimited data at a fraction of the price of competitors.
