FreedomPop Continues to Expand

Based on a recent article previously posted on rcrwireless.com, FreedomPop, a virtual network operator, has announced that it will give discounted or free services to new customers. This promotion will only apply to new customers and will only last until November 27th. Those who are interested will be able to purchase a Motorola smartphone for only $40, which is only a fraction of the regularly priced $230 product, or a Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone for $100, which is regularly $450. Even though these are not the most up to date models, they have been completely refurbished and work as if they were knew. This deal also includes a free text messaging, 1 gigabyte of cellular data and month of unlimited voice calling. After a month users will be placed a basic plan.

FreedomPop is a fairly new company, having only launched in late 2012, but it has already hit about 1 million customers. The virtual network operator was able to provide so much to its users because it has teamed up with other companies who are very influential. Intel Capital has given a large, undisclosed, amount of funding which has allowed FreedomPop to expand its services. Axiata Group, a telecom operator that has230 million customers across India, Malaysia, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Cambodia, Singapore and Sri Lanka, has also invested $10 million. This allows FreedomPop to continue to use its lower priced business model to continue offer free mobile service plans to millions of its mobile users. These are just some of a few of the many investors that FreedomPop has gotten in the past year. It all started in June with $30 million from Partech Ventures, DCM Capital and Mangrove Capital.

Expanding is the one thing that FreedomPop is focusing on. It has already proven that customers are happy with the services that it is offering and that it is able to get funding from other companies. The next step is to expand from the wholesale relationship it has with Sprint to a commercial partnership, where both businesses work together as equals. This partnership might not be with Sprint. FreedomPop is looking to partner with multiple different carriers that have already established, trying to see which one will be most beneficial. There have been many offers but CEO Stephen Stokols has gone on the record stating that he wants to wait and see how much FreedomPop will grow before trying to find a suitable partner.
