Helio LogoNo doubt you’ve heard the rumors about Helio: “Its biggest backer – SK Telecom – was pulling out, and that Helio wasn’t making any money.” According to Business Week Helio has reported earning about $100 a month per user – on par with other MVNOs (mobile virtual network operators). Unfortunately, we don’t know how many users Helio has, but given that Cingular and Verizon report average revenue per user to be $50 a month, we’d say their in a pretty good position to rake in some cash. Course you gotta factor in the fact that Helio is still an MVNO; meaning they have to pay some hefty fees to Sprint or Verizon for use of their “lines”. I’ll have to get down to 3rd St here in Santa Monica and see if they opened up their store yet.
