The great thing about living during a time with some of the best resources and machinery is that there are opportunities to create greater products. Cell phones have become a huge part of everyday lives used to search for answers on Google, watch education videos, call clients across the world, and collaborate with others on text editors. Most Americans know about the big name service providers such as At&t, Verizon, Sprint, T-mobile, and Cricket Wireless, but have you heard about the latest startup, FreedomPop? Here is a freedompop review:
FreedomPop is a newly established service provider that is entering a niche market of cheap cell phone planes. Many of the service providers right now are offering expensive contracts that some may not be able to afford. FreedomPop is looking to take some of the customers from the larger service companies and change the market to offer much lower prices.
This new company has been working on free, basic cellular voice and data plans. In addition, they are working on implementing free WiFi hotspots around the world (specifically all across the United States). With FreedomPop anyone can get automatic sign-on access at any of the hotspots around the United States.
This new setup can change the way customers use high speed data. Freedompop claims that 90% of data used by customers is over WiFi. WiFi has become increasingly more popular than data.
During the first quarter of 2015, FreedomPop was able to start rolling out the data plans and experiment with results. It is very important that it works consistently well so the company is taking their time rolling out all of the hotspots and features.
Freedompop is not a liberty to say who provides the WiFi at each station, but most larger retailers will have free WiFi. The company is partnering with a few retailers to roll out the free WiFi. McDonald’s, Starbucks, and Burger King seemed to be already partnered with either At&t or Google, so it will be interesting to see who freedompop will go after.
Overall FreedomPop will continue to keep building hotspots and roll out affordable service plans to bring in new customers and keep them hooked. The basic plans they offer right now include 200 minutes of calls, 500 texts, 500MB data/month. If a customer would like more than that they are going to have pay. With that said, when there are more WIFI hotspots around the globe, it won’t matter that customers are getting low amounts of data every month because WIFI is free for users.
