The mobile operator is trying to spruce up its offerings, adding a refurbished Apple iPhone 5 to its line-up for $349. There is also talk about FreedomPop possibly expanding its operation overseas...

Hell yeah. After seeing 200 Kbps downloads on my HTC One M7 I can't believe anything Sprint says about speed or coverage...

Just don't see where FreedomPop goes. They will run into the same issues everyone else faces -- data caps. With net neutrality gutted by the government, the big mobile players are going to stomp all over the MVNOs (or assimilate them) in the next few years.
