Pollen Mobile gets a seed round from various VCs and angels to accelerate the development of the world’s first privacy-focused, user owned and operated mobile wireless carrier.
Tough industry. Pagarba tried to do a disaster emergency broadband like device using Lora , Blockchain, p2p communication protocols, encryption and other security features, but it's hard to compete against the Verizons and At&Ts.
And now first responders networks exist with far monetary backing plus Elon Musk has his satellite internet .
I do wonder how pollen is different vs helium and other internet communication startups and platforms though.
Pollen empowers its user community to build, own, and operate a decentralized network infrastructure utilizing blockchain, the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) spectrum, and other open source technologies.
The project has already deployed infrastructure in San Francisco, New York City, and Los Angeles, and last week completed its first nationwide hardware drop.
Sounds like helium in a way. Hopebox had some similar ideas and implementations but geared more towards emergency and disaster communication and saving lives.
