Has FreedomPop introduced a game changer in the free government cell phone industry?
As PCmag.com said, “you don’t get a ton of talk time or data. FreedomPop will give you 500MB of 4G data, unlimited texting, and 200 voice minutes each month. In addition to this, all calls between FreedomPop members will be free.”
An Incredible Offer
This incredible offer will undoubtedly cause some sleepless nights for executives at all the companies competing in the Lifeline Assistance program because it completely bypasses that business model.
According to FreedomPop, their innovative program allows customers to earn additional free data by participating in surveys, downloading programs, and even by referring friends.
If you need more than the 250 free minutes offered in free government cell phone programs, FreedomPop allows its customers to purchase unlimited voice calls a paltry $9.99 per month. And if you need additional data usage, you can also buy a contract-free monthly plan.
We can already hear the questions forming in your head. “Is this some kind of scam? How can FreedomPop pull this off when no one else is able to?”
How Do They Do It?
Without getting into technical details, let’s just say they use a completely different technology called VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol), that routes calls over the internet instead of routing them over traditional wires and towers.
Stephen Stokols, FreedomPop’s CEO and co-founder, said, “The quality of over-the-top VoIP services is now at a stage where we can deliver the major mobile services completely free to consumers.”
Our first question was, what kind of smart phones will be offered? If you read the reader comments here at FreeGovernmentCellPhones.net, you know that current participants in the program have registered many complaints about the quality of their phones.
Without being specific, FreedomPop says they’ll offer “popular models consumers are familiar with.” We anticipate that iPhones and a broad selection of Android phones will be part of the program.
FreedomPop says it will launch the service before the calendar turns to fall. But you don’t have to wait until the leaves start falling off the trees to sign up. Visit FreedomPop.com/phone for more details.
Way to go, FreedomPop. This is the kind of service and the kind of cell phones that low income Americans have been waiting for.
