A Brief Review Of FreedomPop’s Service

When you’re looking to get a new cell phone plan, there are many other options you can consider besides just a regular plan with a major carrier. In fact, you might see a monthly deal with the carrier that looks good, but end up having to pay much more because of activation fees, data usage, and other service fees. And unfortunately if you’re still under contract with your carrier, you’ll get slapped with an early termination fee when you try to leave. But instead of going through all of that, FreedomPop might be a better choice for you. This brief FreedomPop review explains who they are and what they do.

FreedomPop is actually the first of its kind free cell phone plan provider. Well, no it’s not all free, you have to buy your phone, but you have the choice to go with a free plan with limited talking, texting, and data usage, or you can go with one of their premium plans. FreedomPop premium plans include a WiFi plan that you can use the phone over WiFi networks for $5 a month, and an unlimited plan for $20 a month that uses areas covered by Sprint’s network with unlimited calling, texting, and data usage, although internet speeds for the data usage will slow down after the monthly cap is exceeded.

All of this is possible because of FreedomPop’s partnership with Sprint, allowing users in Sprint’s service areas to use mobile services. They started out in 2011 with Clearwire 4G, but added Sprint later to expand coverage, and in recent years have started what’s called the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) option where users who may have terminated previous cell phone contracts can then move those phones under FreedomPop. In addition, you can also get home internet plans without having to go through a cable company or major DSL provider.

Now on the downside, this service is not for everyone, such as those who do a lot of traveling in rural areas or who need a wide coverage map. And their home internet plans may not be the best idea for those who use the internet for a lot of gaming or Netflix watching. But if you primarily stay in urban areas where Sprint’s service is available and your mobile usage is low enough that you could save money with their services, you may just want to give FreedomPop a try.


FreedomPop Marches Into Spain

FreedomPop is coming to Spain and doing so in an incredibly unique way. The budget mobile phone service makes its debut in the country through the popular WhatsApp service. Mobile World Live covers the news and reveals FreedomPop sees WhatsApp as being the basis for eventual growth potential in Spain. The management of FreedomPop optimistically looks to the future and sees up to one million subscribers in two years.

FreedomPop launched in the United States from its Los Angeles office with a desire to make a mark in the budget mobile phone industry. The business believed – correctly – people would notice a mobile service that provides totally free phone, text, and data. Also correct was the notion a solid number of subscribers would pay for expanded service.

All of this proved true and FreedomPop was a hit in the U.S. and a big success in the U.K. The company is now expanding across 31 countries thanks to raising $50 million in investment funds.

Spain is an interesting territory for the company to enter. WhatsApp makes up a massive amount of texting use in Spain thanks to the app being totally free. FreedomPop is sure its previous business model of success will repeat itself in Spain.

The Growth of FreedomPop

RCR Wireless recently talked about the funding fuel expansion of FreedomPop with its CEO and cofounder, Stephen Stokols. Stokols has several years of experience leading in the wireless industry. For the past few of those he has been leading the company to become one of the largest of its kind in the world. “Its kind” refers to it being a MVNO (mobile virtual network operator). This in turn refers to wireless communications service providers who do not own the wireless network on which they work. Instead the MVNO purchases rights to a preexisting network who does own it’s a network. FreedomPop has this kind of relationship with Sprint.

And this strategy has been enormously successful for FreedomPop. It has grown in so much in popularity in recent years that it has succeeded in receiving tens of millions of dollars in funding. This funding has been a huge blessing for FreedomPop who without it would not have been able to remain an independent entity. You can view the article in its entirety at
