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
Gone are the days when people used to complain and sing about their mobile phone carriers being inadequate in terms of poor customer service, poor internet speeds or even being overly expensive. These days, one can migrate from one mobile carrier to the next easily and more cheaply different with a few years back. Even though switching is no longer a headache, picking the most appropriate carrier is a process that requires very serious attention to details.
First of all, it is important to ensure that the network one intends to migrate to has better services and rates when compared to the present one. It is also important to have a look on matters related to the transfer charges if any to avoid instances where one plans for a network transfer that might never take place. Depending on the type of contract one is in, an Early Termination Fee is required to make the transfer.
The easiest and most appropriate way to know the ETF fee is by calling the network one wishes to migrate from and make an inquiry. Most networks do not like losing clients and with such a call, they will keep trying all means to distract the client about making the migrating move.
Every network has their deals and they change a lot when matters related to changing the network are concerned. There are networks that offer plans that are almost similar which implies the need for the user willing to migrate to conduct very thorough research.
The world of telecommunications has changed a lot. These days, there are numerous mobile phone carriers that have played a very integral role when matters related to making communication much easy and affordable are concerned. However, one network has managed to remain unique and very affordable. FreedomPop is the pioneer in matters related to offering wireless voice, data and text services.
The company is located in Los Angeles, California and it is in the business of proving services that are affordable and of good quality. Different with very many mobile communication service providers, the company also offers free data, text and voice packages per month.
In the very recent past, the company has experienced a lot of success in getting venture funding for expansion. It has already expanded its services to the UK market and plans to make similar moves in the Asian region as well. FreedomPop made a serious debut as a virtual mobile phone operator and continues to penetrate even bigger markets so as to offer its quality and cheap services to more people.
