HomePod will work on whatever network the connected iOS device is currently using.

No. Apple says so on their site: HomePod will NOT work on a "guest" wifi network. It needs a WPA2 password. Took me over an hour to figure out that was a problem. Apple does not do a good job explaining what needs to happen to set up the HomePod—e.g., in their hopelessly inadequate tiny "instruction booklet" that comes with the device, they should state clearly that HomePod will not work on "guest" wifi. That frustration alone means I'd rate my HomePod experience as less than satisfactory (Grade B-)—even though the device itself is great.
