$50 Million in Funding Opens the Door to FreedomPop’s New Global Hotspot

FreedomPop is on the move globally. Ironically, thanks to a massive new round of investment raising, those who subscribe to FreedomPop services can also move around globally without losing their access to the service. FreedomPop is hard at work at developing a fantastic new global hotspot service.

Access to the hotspot is afforded after paying a nominal fee of $49. This is a one-time fee. The SIM card required to access the hotspot is only $10, and the SIM card comes with free upgrades.
