In 2014, when it moved to the Sprint LTE network, FreedomPop began to offer a $20 unlimited plan as well as its free service that gives users 200 MB of data, 200 voice calls and 500 text messages free each month. The $20 Unlimited Plan allowed unlimited talk, text and data as well as free tethering on all new LTE phones, allowing users the advantage of using their smart phones as hotspots as well. The plan gave users 1 GB of 4G data and reduced the speed to 3G after that amount has been used. It also beefed up its smart phone lineup to include the Samsung Victory and Galaxy S3 and S4. In January, FreedomPop launched a new global hotspot and SIM that offers free data in 25 countries and plans to expand its coverage to an additional 40 countries before the end of the year.
The new global plan allows users 200 MB of data and charges $10 for an additional 500 MB. The new global plan can be use with any connected device or smart phone as well. The global hotspot is currently priced at $49.99 and will eventually cost $99.99. The global SIM is only $10 and will be updated remotely as new countries are added. FreedomPop aggregated cellular networks around the world allows users a seamless single data connection.
In an interview with Carrier Wrap, a feature of RCR Wireless News, Stephen Stokol, co-founder and COO of FreedomPop, explained how the free wireless internet and mobile phone services allows 25 different networks to plug into its platform. In many markets in other countries, the FreedomPop brand is unknown because it is partnered with familiar well-known brands in these areas.
