FreedomPop has made a name for itself by offering its users limited data, texts, and minutes for free as well as offering upgraded phone plans for as low as ten dollars a month. Users on the free mobile plan are able to add minutes, data, and texts for as little as one cent if they need to or they can upgrade their plan to increase their limit. By industry standards FreedomPop offers the absolute lowest phone plans and saves people a minimum of $80 a month on an individual phone plan compared to industry giants. According to an article written in Mobile World Live the mobile phone company plans to launch their WhatsApp messaging app in Spain for free.
Currently WhatsApp is free but limited in both the United Stats and England however the upgraded plans range from $9.99 to $59.99 for additional data. The reasoning behind this generous expansion is because according to FreedomPop’s data a whopping 70% of users in Spain use WhatsApp as a daily messaging system and that 70% makes up 90% of the texting community. FreedomPop’s goal has always been to provide a system where anyone can communicate for absolutely free and because nearly the whole country uses WhatsApp to text it only makes sense to foot the bill to keep their mission going.
Along with the free service FreedomPop will be offering a standard plan that offers free voice, data, and roaming in thirty-one countries. Applications for beta testing are being currently being accepted until they fill their target quota. FreedomPop only launched their services in England last year and they are already predicting they’ll have 100,000 users however they expect at least 500,000 in Spain. The company plans to continue their global expansion by taking it one country at a time.
