As reported by FierceWireless, mobile virtual network operator FreedomPop is introducing a new cloud based wireless platform that businesses can take full advantage of when setting up their own branded wireless offerings. The service is called Carrier in the Cloud, and it is basically an extension of the MVNO’s proprietary SaaS platform.
FreedomPop’s retail expansion efforts are beginning to bear fruit -- the mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) is launching its wireless services and mobile devices in over 1,100 Target locations across the United States, as well as on Target’s official website. Basically, the partnership will see the retail giant offer FreedomPop’s SIM cards for five bucks and Android powered smartphone devices starting at a very affordable $59.
As far as freemium wireless service providers go, FreedomPop is one of the most popular in the United States. A big reason for that is the mobile virtual network operator’s basic offering, which offers 200 minutes of voice calls, 500 text messages, and 500 megabytes of data every month, and is 100 percent free of charge, in every sense of the phrase.
Not that keen in getting an unlimited plan? FreedomPop is introducing a new yearly plan that tickle your fancy. The mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) is adding another annual option specifically designed for those who do not mind not getting unlimited, but still want to take full advantage of the carrier’s free wireless service.
With the Federal Communications Commission’s recent decision to overhaul the Lifeline program, mobile virtual network operator FreedomPop sees an opportunity for business. For those not familiar with Lifeline, it is a program that subsidizes telecommunications and mobile devices as well as wireless services for low income users.
Mobile virtual network operator FreedomPop has apparently inked a collaboration with the second biggest wireless carrier in America. This week, the MVNO is launching SIM cards and an LTE mobile hotspot that will work on AT&T’s network. According to FreedomPop, the new SIM card only costs $10 and can be used on any certified GSM handset in order to gain access to AT&T’s LTE network. On top of that, FreedomPop also took the opportunity to unveil an LTE mobile hotspot that is priced at $30 and already comes with 2 gigabytes of free data.
With the rising number of unused smartphones, it is only logical that manufacturers would look for a way these devices can still be appreciated. Banking in on this idea, FreedomPop has recently launched an online store where they will be offering refurbished and used smartphones. The online store is called FreedomShop and is currently available for customers based in the United States, Mexico, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
Mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) FreedomPop has decided to team up with Dish Mexico in order to start providing free wireless services in Mexico. If this partnership proves to be a successful model, the carrier is looking to replicate its success in other mobile markets as well. Dish Mexico is owned by Dish and MVS Comunicaciones and is game in collaborating with FreedomPop in bringing free voice calls, text messaging and data access to Mexican mobile users. FreedomPop is tasked with overseeing the operational side of the partnership at the same time powering the mobile service, while Dish will take care of the distribution and customer service, and provide local expertise.
FreedomPop, the United States based mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) basically known for offering free voice call and data services, is now offering zero rated data from instant mobile messaging platform WhatsApp. This means that mobile users in the US can now send text messages, videos, and other content without ever worrying about facing data fees.
FreedomPop already provides its customers with international calling, domestic voice calls and text messaging and data. Now, the American wireless carrier mainly known for offering free voice and data services is debuting a brand new worldwide roaming product at a special offer price. Its Global 3-in-1 SIM card is targeted at mobile users who travel around the world a lot, but want to do away with paying roaming charges if they can help it. FreedomPop’s newest kit comes with a GSM compatible SIM card (ideal for regular, micro, and Nano SIM card sizes), as well as a free trial of the mobile operator’s Global Unlimited Talk, Text and 1 Gigabyte Data offering.
