Some services charge a monthly “rental” fee for a connection device. FreedomPop, one of the newest Internet service providers, has found a great way around those expensive monthly Internet plans!
Sign up for FreedomPop and get a “FreedomSpot” hotspot device for $34.99, plus 3GB of super-fast 4G Internet service free! After a one-month trial period (starts when your device is activated), FreedomPop is just $19.99 a month for 2 GB of data. That’s far below the average monthly cost.
If your house doesn’t do videos, gaming or heavy Internet use (for example, you only need to check e-mail a couple times a day), consider using FreedomPop’s 500 MB data plan for only $3.99 a month. There are charges for any data beyond the 500 MB.
FreedomPop launched in October of 2012 and is growing rapidly. The company was introduced by the people who invented Skype! To provide the best service possible, FreedomPop recently partnered with the same company that manages big-time carriers T-Mobile and Sprint.
FreedomPop does not recommend heavy streaming (especially with online gaming) on their data plans. Plans are best suited for everyday usage like casual web surfing, checking emails, and streaming an occasional movie. We’ve been happy with our FreedomPop service so far—it’s fast, easy to use, and works well on the go. We ordered the FreedomStick several months ago and use it as an emergency backup when we can’t find WiFi on the road.
With the company’s recently expanded customer service division and new mobile logistics plan, we had no problems contacting customer service to make adjustments to our data plan.

FreedomPop has worked well for us so far; we’d love to hear from any fellow FreedomPoppers in the “comments.”
