Uber Black Cars now offering Free WiFi powered by FreedomPop at the Indy500 this Memorial Day weekend. Get those smartphone engines running and connect to FreedomPop’s blazing-fast LTE mobile hotspots while riding in style with Uber.
We’re constantly working on ways to work towards providing a disruptive service so that no one is left off the “connected grid”. We launched with mobile hotspots and now offer the first 100% Free Mobile Phone service. This is just yet another model that we’re testing and may expand nationally with any public transportation vehicle from Uber to buses.
At FreedomPop, we’re all really excited to announce our first steps into Europe with the launch of UK’s very first free mobile phone service this summer. We’ve seen tremendous success with offering free talk, text, and data in the US, and we’re looking forward to making this available to everyone, wherever they are. Sign up on a first-come, first-serve basis at freedompop.com/uk to be among our first beta users.
The free tier will include 200 minutes, 200 texts, and 200MB of data. Also, included is free international calling to over 60 countries and free unlimited calls and texts to each other.
We’re also launching Jetsetter, the world’s first global sim that offers free service that will be initially available in the UK, Spain, and France. Beta invites will become available here or at freedompop.com/jetsetter.
We’re announcing an awesome new FreedomPop software update – “FreedomPop Premium Voice” for existing and new customers that will seamlessly enable FreedomPop phones to switch between VoIP and traditional cellular voice networks. This update will help ensure the best possible call quality regardless of data network speeds.
This is a new upgrade option that we are rolling out. New customers can take advantage of Premium Voice today and it will become available for Freedompop customers to upgrade into using a simple app update in Google Play. We’re continuously working on improving our phone technology to bring a better call experience to all FreedomPop customers and further our company’s mission to disrupt the mobile phone industry and rewrite the rules of American telecom.
Seamlessly connect to nearly 10 million hotspots across the country with FreedomPop’s new unlimited WiFi plan. Any smartphone or tablet with any carrier can get unlimited talk, text, and data for $5 per month. Connect to WiFi via the free FreedomPop App (available in the Google Play store) and access a growing network of 10 million hotspots, many of which are closed to the public. With auto-connect access, there is no need to manually connect via device settings or authentication pages.
Now with FreedomPop Nationwide WiFi, consumers have an alternative to high priced LTE data plans and a simple way to cut down on their cellular data usage with the lowest cost unlimited plan on the market.

We’re happy to launch LTE FreedomPop tablets with phone capability and Free LTE Data, Voice, and Text. We’re now selling iPad mini and Samsung Tab 3 with free data plus expanding tablet functionality to include phone capabilities: a unique phone number, voice and texting. Specifically, users will be able to associate a unique phone number with any FreedomPop tablet and make free calls and texts. This functionality does not currently exist for tablets offered by large carriers, partially because of the potential to cannibalize high margin phone plans.
In addition to the popular iPad mini and Samsung Tab 3 tablets, users with existing LTE tablets can also move their existing tablets to FreedomPop and get the same 500 MBs of LTE data, 200 voice minutes and 500 texts absolutely free. Users can bring their own iPad or Tab device or purchase one from FreedomPop. The iPad mini will sell for $319 and the Samsung Tab 3 for $199.
We’re happy to announce our official expansion into LTE with the Samsung Galaxy S4, S3, and Samsung Victory and a new Unlimited Everything Plan for only $20. We’re also launching our newest free app: FreedomPop Free Voice and Text for Android that provides Free Calls, texts, and voicemail.
All new FreedomPop LTE phones will come with the same free service that hundreds of thousands of Americans already enjoy, which includes 500 MB of data, 200 voice calls and 500 texts free each month. Our new “Unlimited Everything” plan for $20 per month provides unlimited talk, text, and data. Tethering will also be included on certain FreedomPop LTE phones so that they can easily and affordably be used as hotspots. After 1GB of data has been used for the month, LTE speeds will be limited to 3G speeds.
