Thank you for reaching out, Nathan. You will be able to manage your HoloPort settings from a mobile device, but you will not be able to run the Holo hosting software on your mobile device at the moment. The Holo software is still under development. We will be releasing more information after Closed Alpha testing and this will give you more detail on benchmark performance. You can view the HoloPort specifications to see how we've optimized the devices for HoloPort based hosting:  https://store.holo.host/pages/compare


Best,

When do I get my HoloPort?

  To install a holoport and achieve it to run efficiently is there a minimum requirement for internet speed and bandwidth? and would you advise the use of a VPN?

@Michael - we have not announced a date when we will begin shipping, but you can stay tuned by watching our blog https://medium.com/h-o-l-o for future updates.

I thought you had starrted shipping, as I just watched a box unwrapping in Australia via youtube

@Chris - the video you've seen is a 1st wave test unit being unboxed. HoloPorts purchased from Indiegogo and the HoloPort store have not begun shipping yet. To speak to your other question, there is not a minimum requirement for internet speed or bandwidth. You will be able to set limits on how much bandwidth your HoloPort will use. You will not need a VPN to be a host. If you're interested in joining our community to talk about these topics I suggest you join our Telegram group https://t.me/channelHolo.

Thanks, I'm not a fan of telegram, I prefer to send a message and get a direct reply rather than being bombarded with everything and everyone conversing in a chat group, maybe im not using it correctly.

I am a little disappointed  with the replies I have received so far, it all seems a bit wishy-washy 

We need designed parameters to evaluate if the Holoport is a sound investment and a realistic framework of fuel fee's earned as electricity cost vary greatly geographically.

Looking at the purchase costs alone, a holoport is a reasonable investment, I simply want to work out if it is a realistic investment 

Hey Chris, I understand Telegram may not be for everyone, that's why we have Freshdesk here. :)


Regarding wishy-washy replies: we can't give you clear and honest answers about information we simply do not know yet. Which is also why we are not trying hard to convince people to buy a HoloPort  yet, because the cost-benefit calculations aren't available yet. Purchasers so far have primarily bought their HoloPorts because they want to support the network and the success of Holo and Holochain, and trust that it will also be an asset with a reasonable return.
