With data plans getting more and more expensive, there is a new way for consumers to have access to data and wifi plans for a bargain. FreedomPop, a newcomer to the mobile carrier industry is offering access to its Wi-Fi network for only $5 a month. This type of service is truly the first of its kind. For $5 a month, the plan also comes with unlimited talk and unlimited text, along with the access to its Wi-Fi network. The Wi-Fi ability is ran through the FreedomPop’s mobile app that allows its user to login to over 10 million different hotspots throughout the United States, in which some are not available to non FreedomPop users.
A representative from FreedomPop was quoted saying, “With auto-connect access, there is no need to manually connect your device through the settings or authentication pages. Now with FreedomPop Nationwide Wi-Fi, consumers have an alternative to high priced LTE data plans and a simple way to cut down on their cellular data usage with the lowest cost unlimited plan on the market. FreedomPop’s mission has always been about ensuring that everyone has access to affordable and essential communication services.”
The story on FreedomPop was originally created on RCR Wireless. TechCrunch, another website that analyzes new technology on the market, recently had a interview with the founder and CEO of FreedomPop, Stephen Stokols, about the new Wi-Fi plan. He stated that FreedomPop would go from 10 million to 25 million different locations where a mobile hotspot can be accessed to connect to Wi-Fi. Their plan is to locate their mobile hotspots in stores such as McDonald’s, Starbucks, Burger King, and Best Buy.
The new mobile carrier also offers other plans. The next plan, the premier plan, which is only $9.99 a month, also comes with unlimited talk, and unlimited text, access to its 25 million mobile hotspots and 500MB of data. With the premier plan, a customer can choose to get a phone from FreedomPop’s line up or bring their own device. They can also use their phone all throughout the world. FreedomPop is a cost saving mobile carrier that allows its customers access to a service that has become almost a necessity.
