FreedomPop, the mobile virtual network service provider, is known for free service from when the firm is found. The latest offers from the firm confirm that it provides free mobile service and internet service. It is a great opportunity for everyone to get the free option offered by the service provider. Though the offer is found to be more beneficial for light users while making a general FreedomPop review, people who wanted heavy data or more services, the firm provides the options with additional payment.
While choosing the FreedomPop services, users get a variety of options at free of cost. It includes 500MB of 4G data, 200 voice minutes, and unlimited texting services per month. It should be noted text messaging uses the data and hence it can eat up the free data. Interestingly, there is no contract or any cancellation fee or any other hidden fees. The service provider uses the network of Sprint to give service to its customers. Users would also have the option to add data packs to their plan and use it if required.
Once the data usage crosses 400 MB, users will be charged $10 to add the “top up” plan into their account. But, if the user doesn’t want it to be charged, he can switch off the option in the FreedomPop website account. The free service is for one year, and after that, all the users will be charged $10.99 per month for the same plan, but there won’t be having any contracts or cancellation charges like before.
If the user crosses the data limit without any top ups added into his account, he will be charged at $0.02 per additional MB. But, users can bring their friends to the network or by taking surveys, offers, download software, etc., and get bonus data. The users can choose $5 Wi-Fi-calling option, which allows users to utilize Wi-Fi hotspots to make calls, text, and data for $5 per month. Another plan that charges $10.99 per month gives options for unlimited calling and unlimited text but 500 MB data. Again the $20 per month plan offers unlimited calls, text, and 1GB 4G data. After the use of 1GB 4G data, users would get unlimited 3G data.
FreedomPop is based in Los Angeles, California. The firm is backed by tech majors and investment firms. It includes Intel, DCM Capital, Partech Ventures, Mangrove Capital, Axiata and Atomico. In January 2016, the firm announced its entry into international roaming and offered international free data of 200MB 3G/4G data every month in 25 countries including the U.S. and the U.K.
