FreedomPop came on the scene years ago offering cell phone service that was free of cost as well as a low-cost cell phone service to those who needed it. Adding different service plans to their roster made them more popular, especially once they added their unlimited service plans, which have become very popular. Since many phone companies have unlimited service plans, FreedomPop knew it was the best idea to create several plans that have unlimited minutes, text messages, and data. Although the data is unlimited, the 4G data is limited to 1 GB or more, depending on what’s purchased.
Along with having great cell phone service that reaches every corner of the United States, FreedomPop also offers Wi-Fi service that’s unbeatable in price. The Wi-Fi service that FreedomPop has is unlike other services offered, especially since it’s unlimited and only costs five dollars each month for the user. Accessing the Wi-Fi is done through an application that is downloaded from an app store, and the application will be under the FreedomPop name. The user is only billed once a month for five dollars to use the application as much as they want, and they can always share the Wi-Fi with other devices.
Other services customers should look into is the portable hotspots, which can be used with the several plans that FreedomPop offers. Although 500 MB of data is given free with the portable hotspots, but this may not be enough data for those who need constant Internet service on the go, so additional plans can be purchased for the portable hotspot. Those that have the need for home Internet service can obtain it through FreedomPop as well, and 1 GB of free data is offered along with any plan that is chosen. FreedomPop can be the best service provider for a customer with technology needs.
Not everyone realizes, however, mobile advertising options exist to get more data without having to spend any money. Yes, the advertising endeavor not only benefits FreedomPop, but also those who are subscribers.
With FreedomPop, subscribers are able to complete surveys on behalf of third-party advertisers affiliated with the company. Upon properly completely the surveys, extra data is added to an account. All that is required to procure more data is to make a time investment. No real money investment is required.
CBR Online goes into great detail about mobile advertising and its many facets.
Mobile advertisements could impact budget phone services quite a bit and in a positive manner. Those in need of saving money on mobile service are going to find any ad deals to be purely positive.
Most mobile phone services providers tend to score big bucks when it comes to making money off of international travelers. Some of the largest carriers in the United States charge more than just an arm and a leg for any kind of service accessed outside of the United States. FreedomPop has made a name for itself with the services it provides in the U.S. The discount service provider makes it possible for many individuals to actually access free mobile phone services as long as they stay under a certain limit, and then even if they don’t, they can purchase data or additional minutes for pennies on the dollar. The company is now looking to do this in order to help expand its services to the rest of the world for travelers.
Currently, FreedomPop just raised $50 million in order to cut down on the bills someone needs to pay to access international services. With the $50 million it raised, the company made deals with external companies in other countries to allow for improved services at discounted prices for world travelers. Now, individuals are able to pay $49 for access to the international hotspot service and $10 for the roman SIM card. This gives them access to networks in 25 different countries (focused mostly in North America and Europe). This number is likely going to grow to 40 by the end of the year. Much of the money obtained from buying into the international hotspot is going to go towards finalizing deals with other companies in other nations, including those in Asia and South America.
