A New Competitor for Telecommunications?

A recent article by details potential competitor to pre-existing large telecommunications companies. The company called FreedomPop, based in Los Angles, California, has raised an additional fifty million dollars towards expanding their network and their company. They provide talk, text, and wireless internet internationally. FreedomPop specializes in free or low cost calling and texts. They carry the major brands of smartphones and are much more suited to a “light” user. A “light” user is considered to be someone who uses less than a gig of data, or spends much of their time connected to wifi.
The company is attracting headlines and major news outlets like Fox News, Forbes, and more. There are several reasons why this company is so attractive to consumers. They don’t have contracts, carry all the major smartphone brands, have good signal coverage, allow unlimited calling and texting between their brand of phones, allow hotspot roaming, and give users free international calling to around sixty countries. The company prioritizes wifi texting and calling, allowing them to utilize the internet to perform these tasks. The appeal is most certainly there when compared to large telecommunication companies like AT@T and Verizon, where usually a user is contractually obligated and pay a decent fee monthly. College students, the everyday worker, essentially anyone who is connected to wifi for a good portion of the day may want to consider checking them out. FreedomPop is continuing to expand and make waves in the industry. As of right now they aren’t owned by their competitors yet, and continue to look for funding.
