Like all European networks, KPN Belgium is GSM based. FreedomPop Belgium will be a SIM-only service, FreedomPop will not sell phones or broadband devices there. No date was given for the start of Belgian service and details of service plans are not final but there will be a free plan that includes 500MB of data per month.
FreedomPop international SIMs will be available to FreedomPop's US subscribers for use in Belgium and the other countries that FreedomPop plans to offer service in. In an interview with FierceWireless, FreedomPop CEO Stephen Sokols said that FreedomPop SIMs will be free. Sokols also said that the expansion beyond Belgium will probably not happen until early 2015.
Sokols said that FreedomPop's plans to offer GSM based service in the US are "progressing" but declined to say whether the US service would be T-Mobile or AT&T based. Current US FreedomPop service uses the Sprint network. The CEO also said that FreedomPop has been seeing a consistent 15-20% per month in subscriber growth. The company said in February that it had over 100,000 customers. A 10% growth rate would mean over 145,000 uses today.
