The service will be available on FreedomPop's HTC Evo Design smartphone, which will be available for $99. That already is a 65% discount. Freedom Pop says that it will offer customers more choices later this year with a selection of popular Android models. Stephen Stokols, FreedomPop's CEO and co-founder, said that a consumer paying $1500 a year for a mobile service can save up to $1000 a year for the same plan with his service.
FreedomPop offers free 4G data through hotspots and fills in the gaps using Sprint's network. Earlier this year the company started using 4G service from Clearwire and added Sprint's pipeline in April.
"The historically staid mobile operator industry is not only ripe for disruption; it is being disrupted today by creative pricing and service delivery strategies. Combining more economical voice over IP-over-cellular technology with emerging freemium business models such as these provides choice for customers looking for mobile service alternatives while pressuring incumbent carriers to respond as well."-Rich Karpinski, senior analyst, Yankee Group.
