Yes, here they are again, FreedomPop. That little carrier that would from southern California. From peddling their wares on Slickdeals and eBay, to pushing their freemium plans on social networks, FreedomPop seems to be popping up everywhere. Of course, the question you might be asking at this moment is, who or what is FreedomPop.
FreedomPop is another MVNO that operates on the Sprint network. They offer a basic plan that includes 200 minutes of talk, 500 text messages and 500MB of data. This is where FreedomPop turns the big boys on their ear, their basic plan is 100% free. There’s no bill, no taxes, no fees, no contracts, nothing. If you need a bit more, for $7.99 a month you can upgrade to 500 minutes of talk, unlimited text. Another $3 a month increases your talk time to an unlimited level. For a few bucks more a month you can expand your data limits as well.
FreedomPop runs off the Sprint LTE network. They use a VoIP technology for routing your voice calls over your data connection, which is a much cheaper way of operating than the typical pay by the minute setup that some others use. While Sprint may be a bit behind in the LTE race, they are making up ground. Still, coverage may be spotty in some areas, but the overall speeds and performance are untouched for such a low rate. In fact, for about $70, you can sign on for that first year of service. This can save the light user about $1000 a year over conventional plans.
