article imageFreedomPop brings its offering of free mobile internet to Europe

By James Walker     Jul 10, 2014 in Technology
From today, the mobile network provider FreedomPop is extending its completely free internet and phone access into Europe on a pilot program, initially in Belgium only.
The company has further expansion plans for the UK, Germany, Spain and France in the near future after testing with Dutch operator KPN is complete. The company's freemium business model has proved extremely popular with US users, where it sells phones on the network as well as SIM-only deals with free service access, which you can then pay to expand. US coverage is gained by using Sprint's expansive network.
In Europe, only the SIM deals will be offered with 500MB of free data per month "without compromise." US users will be able to obtain an international SIM too for when they travel to Europe, enabling them to retain free network access.
Steven Sesar, FreedomPop co-founder and COO, said about the announcement “We have proved that a freemium model works economically for the company, our network partners and most importantly, the consumer. We have been getting a ton of interest from international carriers and consumers and are excited to broaden our footprint to all global citizens looking for more value and flexibility.”
The company's philosophy that "The Internet is a Right, and not a Privilege" is supported by Niklas Zennstrom, a co-founder of Skype, and aims to offer "100% Free Internet" over 3G or LTE 4G.
