FreedomPop Phone Service Launches with Free 200 Minutes, 500 Texts and 500MB Data Each Month

FreedomPop jumps into the mobile operators' business with its all new IP-based voice and messaging communications services. The point of worry for other operators is its free phone service plan that it is now offering to become a full-fledged mobile operator

FreedomPop has officially started selling its smartphone with premium package plan from today i.e. Tuesday, October 1st. It chooses HTC Evo Design as its first carrier smartphone that will come with free first 200 minutes, 500 texts and 500 MBs of data per month. The broadband provider will charge you for anything above these limits.

It is buying 3G and 4G data from Sprint and offering it as its own VoIP-based communications services. The new mobile operator is not using "the usual MVNO model of reselling another network’s traditional voice and messaging service" for its virtual network.

FreedomPop chooses $99 WiMAX-powered refurbished HTC EVO as its first carrier smartphone, though it has plans to offer other Android smartphones in future. Why Sprint’s WiMAX instead of LTE?

FreedomPop CEO and co-founder Stephen Stokols told GigaOm , "In a lot of places Sprint has both networks; WiMAX is stronger, like LA and NYC. We also wanted to launch a $99 phone. That’s hard to do on LTE.”
