More funds are coming FreedomPop’s way as the company recently received another $50 million in financing. That’s only a few months after the $30 million last year from Intel. FreedomPop is a startup that aims to deliver free mobile phone and high speed Internet service in various areas. The service launched in the UK just before 2015 ended and is expected to be ready soon in some parts of South America and Asia.
FreedomPop recently introduced the Global hotspot and SIM that can be used in Europe and the US. So far, there are 25 countries lined up to receive the free mobile data service including the US, UK, Germany, France, Bulgaria, Ireland, and Norway among others. The free data global plans feature 200 MBs per month of data. That may be small for some people but you can always buy 500MB more of data for an additional $50.
The new Global hotspot costs only $49. The SIM is sold separately for only $10. That’s only the early launch price so it might change anytime.
FreedomPop aims to be one of the top 10 global service providers today. Its expansion in more than 40 countries is something too look forward to. These are key markets where people want to be connected to the Internet all the time. The idea really is that a person can be connected to the mobile Internet for free even when in another country sans the expensive roaming fee. With FreedomPop’s Global Hotspot, wireless Internet can be enjoyed at a very low cost. It’s not really free but the price is very minimal. No extra fee will be required if you’ve already paid for the initial service.
Some other countries where the Global Hotspot can be enjoyed include Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary Italy, Ireland, Italy, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, United Kingdom, and United States.
