Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 10, 2012
FreedomPop, the disruptive new wireless broadband internet company, announced it will officially begin taking orders today for its new 4G iPhone Sleeve. FreedomPop plans to launch its beta program this summer where users will be given up to 1GB of free data every month.
This comes at a time when other mobile carriers, including AT&T and Verizon are increasing prices for broadband data plans and charging exiting customer additional fees to upgrade devices. “The timing couldn’t be better for our product,” said Mauricio Sastre, FreedomPop’s VP of Product. “Carriers are throttling data and increasing prices and users are desperate for affordable alternatives. As the mobile industry flexes its joint oligopolistic power, we want to ensure that we are keeping them honest,” added Sastre.
With FreedomPop’s Freedom Sleeve, users will be able to supplement existing plans with free data or even replace wireless internet plans altogether. The 4G iPhone Sleeve not only unleashes the iPhone at speeds up to 10x current 3G, but also allows up to 8 other devices to connect to it and doubles as a battery charger that can extend battery life up to 6 hours. “FreedomPop is one step closer to disrupting the wireless broadband internet market and providing all Americans with access to free, fast, reliable wireless internet on the most popular mobile device in the world” added Sastre.
Founded in 2011, FreedomPop is building a new wave telecom company. Its aim is to provide disruptive wireless internet services to all Americans and ensure that no one is left off the “connected grid.” FreedomPop’s initial service will launch in 2012.
