Over the past 10 years the telecommunications industry has exploded in growth. We went from small flip phones where texting was about as high tech as it got to smartphones who rival many computers in power. This had led to a dramatic increase in the choices of phones and phone providers.
The fact that there are so many different players in the telecom market means that different companies are trying different things in order to gain customer share. Traditional phone companies have their customers sign up for a contract and then sell them a phone which is subsidized by the plan over time. The new telecommunications provider FreedomPop has decided to take a different route.
Instead of having to pay every month FreedomPop offers people subscribing to their service the ability to pay for what they use. Better yet, when you stay under a certain amount of data, minutes and texts your bill is free. You heard that right- you do not pay a dime.
This plan is great for people who tend to use their phone on wifi and do not make a ton of calls or texts. If you do want to use a little bit more of the network like googleplay you are only required to pay for what you use. Not only that- if you pay for network usage and you do not end up using it the minutes, texts or data rolls over to the next month.
This new partnership with Motorola means that FreedomPop members can buy a phone that typically retails for 250 dollars or more for the low price of 49.99. Not only that- the phone will come with FreedomPop service built in.
While these phones tend to be low to mid range they are a fantastic option for a backup phone, a phone for an older person or as a fun toy for your child.
