FreedomPop Establishes WiFi Add On Service
If you have been paying any inkling of attention to the world of cell phones and their carriers then you likely know what’s been going on with the company FreedomPop. FreedomPop has risen to prominence over the last several years thanks to their interesting approach to business, taking an essentially free service and giving it away. Now FreedomPop is taking a next level approach to getting their product out to the masses by offering an unlimited WiFi option for just an additional $5. IF that offer sounds interesting, keep on reading.
For the better part of the past year we have seen FreedomPop’s CEO Stephen Stokols focus on installing an infrastructure of WiFi hotspots all over the continental United States. At the time of this writing there are more than 10 million FreedomPop specific hotspots available for customers to latch on to, spanning just about every large metro area in the country. These WiFi spots are for customers only and are not available to the general public. With the new $5 monthly plan these WiFi spots will open up to paying customers, giving them access to WiFi just about anywhere in the country.
The WiFi service expansion plan is perfectly in line with FreedomPop’s goal of offering a service built out of ‘add ons’. CEO Stokols pointed out that his goal was to create a sort of digital buffet for customers to pick and choose from, rather than forcing them to pay for everything all at once like most other cell phone carriers. This has given FreedomPop a leg up in an industry that has been saturated with high priced options that don’t focus on the customer, instead focusing on getting the most money to the company.
This newest expansion will be available immediately to paying customers and the WiFi spots are going to be available in a slew of places, including popular retail establishments like McDonalds and Best Buy. CEO Stokols is focused also on expanding the amount of available hotspots to the 25 million mark within the next year or so, expanding the available spots for connection in a dramatic fashion.
While this move will give FreedomPop more leverage at home, it is far from the only move currently being made. FreedomPop has gone global with movements into Asia and the United Kingdom in the past year, creating a hallmark for success for the company to continue pushing in.
