Budgets can be strained by a number of seemingly necessary expenses. Internet and mobile phone services are not deemed luxuries by many. Their daily lives rely upon access to the communications companies providing reliable access to both. While the services are necessary, paying huge monthly fees is not. FreedomPop has shown the budget consumer a new way. Singing up with basic FreedomPop service means free phone, text, and data.
FreedomPop launched an ambitious idea right from the offices of a dynamic Los Angeles startup. The concept and business model was — and remains — very simple. Sell customers a solid smartphone at a discount. With the smartphone, a customer can access a free basic plan: 500MB of data, 500 phone minutes, and 500 text messages. If 40% of the customers are pleased enough to upgrade, FreedomPop can then charge reasonable fees for expanded service.
The costs on the expanded service are not exactly outrageous. They are among the better deals — if not the best deals — in the budget mobile service world. For less than $20, FreedomPop is offering a totally unlimited plan. The unlimited plan does not come with gimmicks or special requirements. Customers just have to request an upgrade — that’s it.
Investors positively do see a great deal of promise with FreedomPop. The millions upon millions of dollars in investment capital flowing into the company’s funds are proof of this. Why would investors not feel confident in what FreedomPop has planned? The company is conquering the United Kingdom’s budget market and venturing into other European territories. The launch of an affordable global hotspot overseas has been met with enthusiasm.
FreedomPop has chosen to duplicate the success of the Wi-Fi hotspot service in the United States. The fee for hotspot access is amazingly low. For only $5, a user can connect to millions of different hotspot locations. The amazing deals FreedPop presents are hard to ignore and even harder to turn down.
Traditional internet is the new sphere of influence FreedomPop wishes to have an effect on. Cheap and limited internet service for home and travel can be accessed with an inexpensive modem and equally inexpensive subscription fees. Why pay huge money for a limited amount of internet use when FreedomPop has a cheaper option available? The internet runs on reliable 3G and 4G networks. So worries about downtime shouldn’t be much of a concern.
Those hoping to cut costs, save money, and access reliable service have a leader to turn to. The leader’s name is FreedomPop.
