At this time, the Bobber 500 will not be available for any other countries outside of the US.

Bobber 500 Profitability 

Bobber 500 will provide wireless network coverage for IoT devices and cellular devices (like cell phones) operating in the CBRS band. In deploying a Bobber 500, users will earn HNT cryptocurrency by offloading cell data for carriers like DISH Wireless and GigSky. 

HNT cryptocurrency is freely exchangeable to other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or fiat currencies at many popular cryptocurrency exchanges. Please refer to public data sources for HNT prices and places to trade.

Bobber 500 will always mine at least as much as a Bobcat Miner 300 but has the added capability of earning additional rewards by attaching a cellular radio. The rewards for cellular mining will vary depending on a number of factors including: 

  1. Location of the Gateway 
  2. The Capability of the Small Cell Radio
  3. The speed and Reliability of Your Internet Connection
  4. The Number of Roaming Partners on the Network. 

Additional Hardware

In addition to the Bobber 500 Gateway, in order to mine MOBILE you will need to buy a FreedomFi plug-and-play compatible radio certified to operate in the CBRS band. Any radios certified to be plug-and-play compatible with FreedomFi gateways will work with the Bobber 500. We currently offer several radio and gateway bundles on out website as well as links to partner sites for compatible radios. To check out radio offerings, visit the Bobber 500 page here.
