How much we care
It all started at home, with family..
Greg Tellone always had an entrepreneurial spirit, which started with mail ordering PC parts to his parent’s home in the 80’s and assembling them for sale to friends, family and his father's fellow Officers in the NYPD. By the young age of 25, after several years of working at Cheyenne Software and McKinsey & Co., Greg was ready to venture out on his own.
His vision – to bring his enterprise experience to small businesses who couldn't afford the benefits of a full-time geek. Greg started GTel Networks, Inc. in 1999, from his parent's basement, providing network infrastructure planning and management services to customers throughout the NY Tri-State area. From it's inception, his father Robert Michael Tellone was on the payroll and they were climbing up on the roof together, installing antennas to connect customer locations via Wireless Wide Area Networks.
Two decades later, his 17 year old son Tristan and 13 year old daughter Noelle joined the family business, bringing a new outlook on the future of technology. Tristan’s experience with cryptocurrency and crypto mining has helped countless people with their crypto investment strategies and operations. Tristan's crypto experience and Noelle's passion for helping build the family business, combined with their father's wireless networking and business experience, made the Helium network, a perfect fit.

Robert Michael Tellone
Chief Antenna Mounter
Bob's background in construction, carpentry, plumbing, roofing, electrical and just about any other trade you can imagine, has paved the way for generations of Tellone's to learn how to do anything they set their mind to. In his retirement days, he still enjoys climbing a ladder to do a roof-mount to help the family business.
