What is FreedomPop, you may wonder?
This is a new service that will launch in Spain with a free WhatsApp to go with it. This new service allows users to have limited minutes and data for their phone plan, and pay when they want more minutes and data.
This free app they are launching will offer free calling with the WhatsApp regardless of how many minutes they have used previously. (Sahali Riaz)
Why is this app so new and different? Well, “It has “completely cannibalised traditional mobile services in Spain and shaped a unique opportunity for companies looking to embrace the new OTT world we live in,” said Steven Sesar, FreedomPop COO and co-founder.” (Sahali Riaz) This app is only available in the USA or the UK at the moment, but information shows that more than 70% of Spain’s mobile customers already use the app, which is great. The standard free voice feature is in beta mode.
They hope to have as many as 100,000 subscribers in Spain in 12 months. FreedomPop is a very secure company, in my opinion. The company did fundraising on its own and now they have $109 million dollars in total funding, which is very good. The new funding will be used to grow and expand their market in Europe. This app and the way they have revolutionized, as it were, texting, is a very good thing for all, regardless of income.
Check out this review of FreedomPop
Freedom Pop has become one of the top suppliers of mobile communications for those seeking out the best in free talk, text and data plans. As the only provider of a free mobile service in the U.S., and as a provider of free and paid services in certain areas of Europe the company is currently going from strength to strength. One of the areas FreedomPop users were looking for changes in the service was the provision of Smartphones that could be purchased through the cell phone provider.
The first cell phone to be offered by FreedomPop has now been revealed as a Motorola Moto E; provided in a certified pre-owned condition the phone is guaranteed to pass muster for all the uses a FreedomPop user could require. These high quality phones are provided with a 30 day money back guarantee and a one month free trial of the premium unlimited talk, text and 1GB data plan for just $49.99. FreedomPop users who choose to purchase the cell Moto E are not required to stay on the premium paid plan, but can instead choose to revert to the free plan providing 200 voice minutes, 500 texts and 500MB data.
The growth of FreedomPop has been speedy and includes global movement into Europe and Asia, which has seen the development of a partnership with Motorola rumored for a number of months. The second generation Moto E is a high quality Smartphone that includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processing chip and a five megapixel main camera. As the FreedomPop plan does not require a contract to be signed between the user and the provider that allows the service to be canceled at any time without penalty.
