FreedomPop, though unknown, is about to become the next big name in Mobile Virtual Network Operators as venturebeat reports on its latest innovation.
Initially a service that offered SIM cards affording free basic mobile plans, FreedomPop is taking the world by storm with their latest creation WhatsApp. Founded back in 2011 this company made its mark through giving away mobile plans that included free talk time, text messaging and even the ever coveted data. Now FreedomPop’s newest app gives users zero-rated access, meaning through WhatsApp you can talk and text regardless of your remaining data and is completely free to use. It is expected to launch in Spain within the next few months, and while it will be limited specifically to that area, FreedomPop is optimistic that its popularity will soon spread.
Despite controversy arising from Europe and India, WhatsApp expects their launch to go well, and hopes to disrupt the local markets in other areas. Like most text and talk apps around the world WhatsApp’s appeal is that you simply open your app and have free talk time or texting regardless of your plan. It currently holds the place of most popular texting app in Spain, and FreedomPop by making this app zero-rated hopes to gain traction throughout other areas of Europe. The true selling point for FreedomPop is the fact that it offers free roaming in over 30 countries including the U.S., the U.K., Germany, France and Italy.
With the goal to change mobile service as we know it firmly set in their minds, there is no telling what heights FreedomPop will achieve next. For now, millions wait as the impending launch date draws near, and millions more eagerly hope for its launch in their own country.
