FreedomPop Uncorks ‘Free’ Mobile Service | Broadcasting & Cable

Taking aim at cellular and traditional phone services and cost-conscious consumers, FreedomPop has introduced a beta version of a free mobile service that serves up to 500 megabytes of data, 500 text messages and 200 "anytime" voice minutes per month for free. And that offer is good "for life," the company said.

The startup also launched a no-contract, premium-level service for heavier users that runs $10.99 per month. The initial service will be offered on the HTC Evo Design smartphone, an older Android- and Wi-Max-based model that FreedomPop is selling for $99. Other Android-based handsets that can use the FreedomPop services will be offered later this year.

"FreedomPop's mission is to ensure that everyone has access to affordable, convenient and essential communication services. With this launch, we've just taken our largest step to date towards delivering on this objective," company CEO and cofounder Stephen Stokols said, in a statement.

New Option for Low-Cost Home Broadband | OCLC WebJunction.org | freedompop | Scoop.it

The low cost broadband service options being provided by FreedomPop and C2C are not long-term solutions. Still, the options are important because they are attempting to meet a very serious need. If you do not have home internet service, when your child has a homework assignment that must be researched and completed online and the library and local community technology center is closed, what are your options? McDonald’s?The parking lot outside a building with open wifi? Low cost home broadband is a serious need that requires multiple solutions now.

 

The data caps will likely frustrate some users, particularly folks new to home internet access. How many of us really know how much bandwidth we use? Fortunately, FreedomPop provides an ongoing record of usage and the number of days remaining in your month. Individuals who must keep track of their usage learn quickly to pay attention. Organizations who partner with C2C and FreedomPop will likely integrate managing data use into their technology classes.

 

What makes the C2C and FreedomPop offer unique is that it opens up a low cost home broadband service option beyond:

FreedomPop's home broadband service goes live. Can you survive on 1 GB a month? | GigaOM Tech News

FreedomPop's home broadband service goes live. Can you survive on 1 GB a month? | GigaOM Tech News | freedompop | Scoop.it

FreedomPop launched its home broadband service on Wednesday, taking the freemium model it uses for mobile data to the residential broadband market. FreedomPop is offering 1 GB free of charge to any user who signs up for service and buys its $89 home WiMAX router.

 

Anyone who does more than check email on their home PC is surely going to use more than a single gigabyte in a 30-day spell, but as with its mobile service, FreedomPop is offering ways for users to earn more free data and selling premium data plans with bigger buckets of data. The bottom line though is heavy home broadband users aren’t going to sign up with FreedomPop – these plans aren’t designed for Netflix or file sharing  — but the virtual network operator is making a compelling case to casual data users, selling home connectivity for as little as $10 a month.

 

FreedomPop is offering four tiers of service, all of which tap into Clearwire’s WiMAX network available in 70 cities (as an MVNO FreedomPop resells Clearwire’s WiMAX capacity today and will soon resell Sprint LTE connections as well). The first tier costs nothing, giving customers 1 GB of monthly data with speeds throttled to under 1.5 Mbps. Every additional megabyte beyond the one-gig cap costs a cent, so going way over that cap could be a mighty expensive proposition. For instance, Streaming a 2 GB HD movie would cost you an additional $20.
