FreedomPop made headlines for its debut in Spain. This foray into Spain marks the mobile service provider's expansion into a third country where it offers its free and affordable wireless service.
Now that FreedomPop is in Spain, users can easily get connected to the service by simply picking up a FreedomPop SIM card and inserting it onto their iOS or Android device. They will then be able to enjoy 100 minutes, 300 texts, and 200MBs of data each month at no cost. Additionally, FreedomPop customers in Spain will enjoy zero-rated service for data used on the popular messaging app, WhatsApp. In addition to these services, the FreedomPop SIM card may be used for roaming in 25 countries such as the United States, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Italy and Portugal; at no additional cost.
In line with its launch, FreedomPop is offering its customers free WhatsApp, unlimited talk, and 2GB of data for the first month of service. With this promotion, the mobile service provider hopes to entice as many users as possible. Launching in Spain, FreedomPop hopes to draw in more users since it is a country noted to have over 90 percent of texts via WhatsApp.
Apart from this, FreedomPop is planning to launch a new feature that would allow users to share mobile data between friends. According to the company, users can request data from their friends; particularly those with unused data. As a promotion, each user will be getting an extra 20MBs of free data per month that they can use to share with their friends. This also aims to help users get a chance to earn unlimited free data.
This is the third country wherein FreedomPop is now available following its launch in the United States and United Kingdom. The provider aims to reach 500,000 up to a million of new users in Spain in a lifespan of a couple of years. So far, the company claims that there have already been 100,000 locals who signed up for their beta service. FreedomPop still hopes to continue its international expansion by adding more countries to its list by the end of 2016.
