FreedomPop says it will zero-rate data used by the WhatsApp app for its Spanish customers. That means that data consumed by WhatsApp messages and calls will not count against the user's allotment of free data. Considering the fact that WhatsApp has accounted for over 90% of messaging in Spain, this is definitely big news for those in the country.
To celebrate their success, FreedomPop has announced that users may take advantage of the free unlimited texts and calls through WhatsApp by simply plugging in a FreedomPop SIM onto their device. After doing so, FreedomPop will subsidize the data used by the app. In addition to free texting, FreedomPop will be offering standard free voice and data and free roaming across 31 countries such as the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal and many others.
To enjoy the service, which is expected to begin sometime this summer, FreedomPop has started accepting beta registrations on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you are interested, you may visit FreedomPop.com/Espana for more information.
