FreedomPop frees you from your bills!
We will be covering the increasingly popular services provided by FreedomPop in this FreedomPop review. If you haven’t heard of them, FreedomPop is a new service out of California that is trying to change how cell phones connect to each other. Traditional cell phone services are notorious for overcharging even the most basic transactions that a normal internet connection would think nothing of providing. This includes charging full price even if you use only a small amount of the service plan.
What Does FreedomPop Offer?
FreedomPop’s first major change addresses the second point. They offer a fairly standard basic plan of about half a gigabyte for free. You’ll want this for those short calls that are otherwise too small to pay an exorbitant fee for. This means not having to worry about calling your mom every month, if that’s all you need to use the plan for.
The next and much bigger change is switching to a Wi-Fi network. They are trying to push Wi-Fi as a standard replacement for cellphone connectivity and internet, rather than the normal cellular network. Wi-Fi on a phone is nothing new. The reason it is not more widespread is that phone companies used to have complete control over phones and prevented alternate services from being available, but now companies like Google are trying to integrate Wi-Fi as seamlessly as other cellular networks.
What Is So Great About Wi-fi?
The idea is to show their users that they are a reliable service provider and convince them that the upgrade to Wi-Fi is a great deal. The Wi-Fi deal is much improved over normal services plans. At just $5 a month, you get all the services you would with an unlimited cell plan, from talk to text, and even internet browsing.
