FreedomPop to Offer Mobile Service
Jun 10, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- FreedomPop said it is announcing the first completely free mobile service with free voice, free text and free data.
In a release, the Company noted FreedomPop's service will give users a guaranteed 500 MBs of 4G data for free, unlimited texting, and 200 free anytime voice minutes each month. In addition, FreedomPop users will enjoy free unlimited calls to each other.
"This is not only disruptive, but game-changing," said Jonathan Chaplin from Newstreet, an investment firm focused on the telecom industry. "This move completely marginalizes the voice network by leveraging VoIP over cellular and is extremely threatening to already declining voice margins." The FreedomPop service will be available on several Android phones later this summer.
"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. FreedomPop is changing the mobile market for good with the sole intent of bringing better value to the consumer," said Stephen Stokols, FreedomPop's CEO and co-founder. "FreedomPop's mission is to ensure that everyone has access to affordable, convenient and essential communication services. With this launch, we've just taken a very big step towards delivering on this promise." ((Comments on this story may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org))
