Things To Know

FreedomPop is one of the dozens of Mobile Virtual Networks Operators that operate in the USA (otherwise known as an MVNO for short).

In the case of FreedomPop, it is an MVNO that operates largely as a Sprint MVNO, although the company also recently began to offer service as an AT&T MVNO.  In addition to being an MVNO partner to a couple of networks in the USA, the company also has partnerships throughout the globe, particularly in Europe with the United Kingdom being a region of major interest.

Besides using cellular data networks for service, Wi-Fi can also be used for phone calls and messaging.  FreedomPop’s service is primarily VoIP based and for some customers this causes a little bit of latency while on a phone call.  When the latency is too high, it may take a split second for what is said by one person to be heard by the person on the other end of the line.  Sometimes this leads to people talking over one another.  For a small fee subscribers can upgrade their line to include Premium Voice, which allows FreedomPop’s service to work over its partner’s voice networks when their data connection is too poor for VoIP to work well.

FreedomPop was founded in the year 2012 by Stephen Stokols and Steven Sesar.

The company claims to be the first in the world to offer a totally free phone plan.  Those with a FreedomPop global SIM card, can travel the world and have completely free phone service with talk, text and data available in more than 25 countries. Free cell phone plans are also available domestically for both consumers and businesses. Those that need a cell phone plan for their business can subscribe to FreedomPop’s free small business plan, and they’ll get unlimited talk, and text with 2 GB of shared 4G LTE data.  A minimum of 2 lines are required to subscribe to the small business plan.

FreedomPop is more than just a mobile phone service provider.  The company also offers Mobile Hotspot, and home internet service.

FreedomPop often pushes customers on its Sprint based plans to buy a phone, however BYOD is supported.  Sometimes it takes a little effort to find the free plan offers without needing to purchase a phone.

The company’s free cell phone plans are designed to up-sell customers to paying service.  The free plans typically have slower data speeds compared to paid plans.  Group messaging/MMS picture messaging does not work without upgrading to paid service.  Some users workaround this limitation by using Google Voice.  Keep in mind that at least one phone call using your FreedomPop number must be made every 60 days to keep your line active.

To date FreedomPop has managed to secure over $100 million dollars in venture capital funding which has allowed the company to grow rapidly and to quickly expand its global footprint.

FreedomPop runs on the Sprint (CDMA) and AT&T (GSM) networks, therefore coverage is the same as what you’d get with Sprint or AT&T’s network. More specifically, your coverage will be the same as Sprint’s prepaid and AT&T’s prepaid network, as FreedomPop does not have the same network roaming partners that Sprint and AT&T have.

When you sign up with FreedomPop, you can choose which network you want to use.
