Either way, here are 12 interesting facts about World Global Network you need to know.

#12. Very new

World Global Network (written WOR(l)D Global Network) has only been around for about three years. Although, it’s more like double that in MLM-years.

#11. Truly a global network

Despite being around for less time than it takes to get a college degree, they’re everywhere.

Headquartered in the UK, they also have offices in Miami, Moscow, Dubai, London, Singapore, and Dublin, and they operate in over 100 countries.

#10. Unique product market

For MLMs that is. They traffic in cellular devices, which is pretty much unheard of in network marketing.

It’s a little complicated to sort out what all they offer, but basically they have proprietary phones on their own community-built network that supposedly has better coverage for a lower cost.

#9. Innovative product

Unlike many MLMs who have products that are questionable or repetitive at best and downright non-existent at worst, theirs is clear-cut, useful, and pretty innovative.

Their technology, or product, is project mCell 5G technology. Basically, a wireless network is created by members who install hubs everywhere they can (in their homes, offices, etc), basically becoming the builders of the network. This allows users to tap into a huge variety of networks for optimal coverage that includes 3G, 4G, WiFi, and LTE-U5G.

Basically, World Global Network users are sticking it to the man by creating their own, privately owned communication network, thereby kind of deregulating telecommunications.

#8. They have space phones

Phones that work in space? For when the zombie apocalypse come and we all have to move to Mars?

Well, not quite. But still cool.

Basically, the user-installed wireless hubs are called “space stations” and their phones are called “space phones”. When users are near a “space station”, their phone uses that signal instead of its regular service, meaning you’re not using up your allotted data, texts, or calls. Everything is free.

So you’re not going to space, but still, it’s pretty cool. Their spacephone 5gs is the first phone built pre-connected to the internet, you never run out of data, and you have worldwide coverage in more than 100 countries on their independent mobile network.

#7. Wearable technology

Wearable technology is a huge buzzword that’s been gaining a lot of traction the past few years, and is predicted to become a huge part of our lives.


WGN has entered this market with the HELO, a wristband that monitors your health and predicts disease. Basically a super-Fitbit.

#6. Now using brand new tech from Toshiba

The HELO wristband uses new technology developed by Toshiba that integrates Bluetooth, a new heavy duty processor, and flash memory into one tiny package.

Soooo….what does that actually mean?

Well, in the HELO, it means that it collects data and detects changes with extremely high precision and then uses to Bluetooth feature to relay the information, in detail, to your smartphone. [1]

#5. New augmented reality glasses

This company is really hitting up all the latest tech trends and buzzwords. Augmented reality is right up there with wearable technology, and they’ve announced a new product to keep up.

LUMINA smart glasses are wire-free and give the wearer high quality “infotainment” experiences using wide screen display, high-resolution, and built-in stereo sound (not to be confused with Limu). It’s also got a 13MP camera, compass, GPS, microphones, HD video recording, gyroscopes (what?), and accelerometers (whaaaat???). [2]

Basically, the ultimate YouTube Celebrity or Adventure Travel Blogger starter pack.

#4. Top talent working with them

Basically a bunch of tech and business all-stars. Think Chicago Bulls in 1996.

They’ve got the inventor of Socialmatic, a Polaroid camera, a top 20 Top Direct Selling CEO (ranked right below the CEO of Mary Kay), and the top selling CEO in the world in 2014. [3]

#3. Award-winning compensation plan

They’ve got a pretty unique model for compensation, and it seems to be working well.

In fact, it was actually ranked as number 10 in the Best MLM Compensation Plan Poll for 2014. [5]

Basically you own a little piece of the network, so every time a user connects to it, you’re helping them generate revenue, which they then share with you.

The exact amount you make is a little vague. According to their website, it “depends on the number of micro-cells installed worldwide and the time each user spends on the network.” But when you install microcells, you get a MINIMUM of 30% a year of the value invested in your personal microcell.

#2. Top 100 MLM company

In 2015, only a couple years after starting up, they’d already been listed as one of the top 100 MLM companies in the world. What have you done in two years? [6]

#1. Expensive start-up cost

Starting up with this company isn’t cheap, but you do get a lot more than some pamphlets and a protein shake (no offense, ViSalus or Isagenix).

For the HELO healthband, they have two start-up packs. $349 gets you started with your own HELO healthband and $1,149 gets you HELO healthbands for the whole family.

For the phones, they’ve got a “lite” start-up package for $199.99, and a “suite” start-up package for $349. You get a phone with this. Of course, you need the bigger one to make money, as is usually the case.


World Global Network is no doubt one of the hottest tech MLMs right now with a pretty cool concept.

They have an interesting compensation plan with opportunities to make some good side money if you get people on board. You probably won’t get rich, but if you are set on MLM, this wouldn’t be a bad one to try.

Still, I’ve been involved with network marketing for over ten years so I know what to look for when you consider a new opportunity, and this is far from the best one.

    Sounds like it was more the sponsor, less the company.

    Just keeping it 100

  • Gwen Jul 6, 2017, 9:24 pm

    This is absolutely a scam! Just try to return the product and see what happens! No phone number to call. Customer service email states they will not accept emails. I returned my Helo 3 months ago. I still have not received a refund.

    • Shawn Jul 18, 2017, 2:35 am

      Mine has been since April!!!

      Hi Gwen,

      Did you receive your refund yet?

    • Mike perretta Aug 5, 2017, 12:35 am

      Wrong. I am a representative of World Global Network.

    • Leo Hokkanen Aug 7, 2017, 12:28 am

      Why would you want to get a refund for the best wristband in the marketplace? Voted #1 Direct sales product! I guess you didn’t make any money with it after a week and decided to call it a s…
      One thing i can tell you … World has a history of success… and it continues to grow, with or without you!

    • Lester Sep 5, 2017, 7:37 pm

      So what happened to your refund? I need to know cuz I ordered one for my wife and paid it with credit card through one of their downline salesman who promised the product will be delivered within 10 days…it’s been 2 months already and nothing came…please let me know how you went about getting your refund so I do the same thing..thank you

    • Seth Weisel Sep 14, 2017, 6:09 pm

      I’m having the same trouble! I have a defective product! I have a friend who apparently has a friend that reps these guys and he gave me a number to call, but they just put you on hold for HOURS! Then they give you an option to leave a message so that they can get back to you, but they never do. Total SCAM!

      • Jeremy Page Oct 7, 2017, 9:36 am

        Wow, sounds messy

  • Jan Jul 19, 2017, 11:49 am

    After watching several videos for two weeks, I still can’t find anywhere in print what the compensation is. It seems to change depending on what video you watch. Does anyone in this company have it in writing?

  • Brian Aug 26, 2017, 2:34 pm

    Desperate people need to wake up. Paying money up front to earn money is a scam. Ignore all internet baloney and find yourself a real local job.

    These types of “businesses” in the MLM world are too large to fail. They know it’s only going to make them richer. They get away with it as they give a disclaimer that most people won’t earn money and those that do average $500 a year. You are “working” for pennies an hour or less.

    • Jack Feb 4, 2018, 5:15 am

      So I guess paying lots of money to buy a fast food franchise restaurant is a scam? Or paying money to buy inventory for a startup restaurant business is a scam? You clearly don’t know how a business works. Stick to your 9-5. Network marketing compensation is based on personal performance. People don’t make money because they give up or they’re too afraid to step out of their comfort zone.

      • Barrington Miller Mar 28, 2018, 10:23 am

        That’s so true, I am a dreamtrips member and I really think this is one of the few companies that actually offers a service that almost everyone wants.

  • Thomas Carson Sep 16, 2017, 9:08 am

    I had my helo-x for about 2 weeks.Iwoke up and removed the unit and it came to two pieces, the back piece was left on my arm maybe the electronics are fantastic ,but the casing they are held in seems very shoddy. I live in Philippines have given unit back to the provider awaiting results.If world global is interested in acquiring a genuine market .I suggest they do something quickly .They can send me an “e”mail explaining how such a well built and expensive unit can just disintegrate on your arm I am very disgusted with the outcome of their product

  • Kristine Brown Sep 21, 2017, 5:30 pm

    I have been involved with World since late November, and although most of this article is accurate, I can see that the writer may not have done all their research. Please contact me directly and I would be happy to give you all the incredible details of this top notch company that you DO NOT want to miss out on!

    • Jeremy Page Oct 7, 2017, 9:32 am

      MLMs change and evolve constantly, hard to keep up with changes!

    • Jeff Dec 13, 2017, 7:33 am

      Well said!!!

  • Corey Larson Nov 4, 2017, 3:18 am

    I would like to reassure anyone taking a look at this opportunity, and say keep an open mind! No company is perfect, with technology and health and wellness, there will always be growing pains! I love my helo lx, it is very accurate, and the panic button is like no other. I have heart disease that runs in my family, and I have high cholesterol, so a device that monitors my heart 24/7 noninvasive with bio parameters for a couple hundred dollars is worth every penny and then some! And being able to have a business we can work from our phone? 190+ countries world wide, traded on stock market, and being FDA approved in 2018! Do your research 100% and get ALL your questions asked from knowledgeable people before starting any venture, good luck in all you do!! Remember we only have one life to live, no one is promised tomorrow, and make the most of your life, don’t put all your eggs in one basket!!

  • Yvonne Nov 16, 2017, 2:13 pm

    What you don’t talk about is the terrible customer service so clearly they have paid you to write this review.

    I’ve been waiting two months for a refund.

    What they don’t explain clearly is that you don’t get full use of all of the apps unless you may a very high monthly charge. Oh but then they say you get a credit of $75. Approx to use on product. Which now means you are selling or distributing this product.

    My device worked for three days…that’s right three days. I no longer can access my account and have not received a refund

    • JP Dec 20, 2017, 7:08 am

      Nobody paid me.

      I’m self-made.

      But hearing a lot of “customer service” complaints from WGN

  • Terry Peterman Jan 9, 2018, 4:36 pm

    I got sucked in to the MLM, and only because I thought the product was something I could get behind. Both my wife and I used the HELO for several weeks. My wife is a loyal FitBit user, and she compared both. The Helo LX didn’t come close to matching the accuracy of the functions of FitBit, but here’s the real kicker. I calibrated my Helo for blood pressure monitoring and it seemed pretty accurate and consistent. Then I tried testing my blood pressure with the device off of my wrist. Miracle of miracles! The blood pressure reading was exactly the same! Just to be sure I didn’t have a faulty device, I did the same test with my wife’s Helo, same results! That’s quite impressive that it can take all my readings while sitting on the bedside table. Run, don’t walk if approached with this amazing business opportunity!

  • Eileen Ochsner Jan 27, 2018, 10:22 pm

    This product is horrible. Mine broke. I spent over $300 and the thing did not work. I called the company numerous times and had to leave messages. When I finally got ahold of someone, they had me do a video showing it did not work and they still did not respond. I wrote a complaint through the BBB and they would not respond to the complaint. I would not buy this nor sell this to anyone.

  • Kim Feb 3, 2018, 4:38 pm

    I signed up in this company almost 1 year ago. I have I tried really hard for 6 months to build a business hardest business ever to build! I paid the $59 a month and in December wanted to pre-order the phone for $499 to use up my accumulation of the $59 which was credited each month to be $75. They wanted $65 for shipping and $35 for sales tax on the pre-order. I didn’t order it. Then we were told all along that it would do oxygen saturation as well as glucose blood level monitoring and a mosquito repellent as well as other features in October of 2017. All they’ve come out with his another new Helo. To talk about the monitor for blood glucose is over $300. In 40 Years of direct sales and one company that pays my bills for almost 40 years that is quality and reputable this company is nothing but a bunch of mumbo-jumbo hype garbage trash save your money. Beware, don’t give them a penny of your money! We also bought stock huh what a joke worst investment ever! We’ve lost quite a bit of the money the shares on February 2nd 2018 closed at $7 and something. We purchased it at $26 a share! They need sued!

    • JP Mar 23, 2018, 12:59 am

      Sounds intense.

  • Leo Sep 22, 2018, 7:08 am

    It’s a SCAM!
    I bought two Helo LX Plus and both do not work properly at all. Even if I moved the entire day, the recording is stuck at only 500 steps. And I was then told that it doesn’t work with apple phone but only android. I wasn’t told about this when I bought !
    My friends bought 4 pieces on HELO LX and all didn’t work as well. The heart rate readings, BP readings were highly inaccurate.

    The presentation about product and business is fantastic. But they were all illusions. They sell dreams and hopes but they are not going to fulfill them at all. Each time I complain about the product (not working properly) or business backend glitches (commissions cannot be withdrawn), the customer care service reply was very standard…… there is nothing more that can be done. So it’s either you quit the game or continue to deceive others to join so that you can make some money to minimize losses.

    This is the worst MLM company that I have joined. I bought a business builder pack USD$1,500 on 26 July 2018 and I brought in another 6 people who also bought USD $1,500. I became a team developer within a month on 24 August 2018 and they are supposed to refund me USD$1,500. But nothing materialized. They denied me of refund of USD$1,500 saying that I did not place the downline properly and I missed the weekly dateline. First of all, all these were not told to me at all. I was only informed after my refund was denied.

    Everything was geared towards their advantage and people like us will be shortchanged.

    I am writing now not to voice my frustrations but rather to warn those innocent people not to be deceived into WGN Helo SCAM.

    The business fundamental is fantastic especially a tech healthcare MLM model which is unheard of. That was the biggest attraction for me. But only if the Italian founder FABIO is going to fulfill each and every of his promises. After 2-3 months with WGN, I can see their direction clearly. They only want to recruit and recruit to make all the money and they are not committed to fix any glitches, faulty products.
    This clearly communicated that this MLM is going to be short lived. So better don’t part your money and time with World Global Network at all. Never trust Italians! They are the biggest liars and cheaters!

    Let’s stop WGN from cheating anymore people
