Sprint MVNO FreedomPop, could be the subject of an acquisition by a major carrier. Talks started to ramp up after Sprint decided not to go after T-Mobile earlier this month. FreedomPop CEO Stephen Stokols has confirmed that his company is the target of a possible buyout, but could not give out more information. Could it be Sprint that has the interest in FreedomPop?...

They use sprint network so network wise they suck. Once they are owned by tmobile that will change a bit.

i have the freedom pop hub burst which uses sprints 4g wimax, 10 gb of data for $20 per month, i use it for my business. 2 computers checking emails/facebook/sometimes watching video and i have never gone over half my alotted data. There is no customer support that i know of. monthly payments are taken out of your credit/debit card automatically with no way to pay in advance. it is by far the cheapest option out there and it works for me, now if you are not in a 4g wimax area then you might have a problem

Sounds like a soft drink. Maybe Coca-Cola is going to buy them? Free hotspot with every case of Coke?

Bought a hotspot free with free data. Can't go wrong with that! Great as a backup. Got me out of trouble a couple of times
