FreedomPop Offers Multi-Month Plans Where You Can Save When You Buy in Advance

freedompop-multi-month-plans
FreedomPop, in its efforts to provide its customers more diverse options, has come up with a new set of multi-month plans. These plans are suited for customers willing to purchase more than a month of service at a time in exchange of a discount.

It seems like these options match the ones offered by Mint SIM, in terms of their included data amounts and plan length. But as for the pricing, FreedomPop seems to be offering cheaper plan options.

FreedomPop's new prepaid plans look like this:


  • 2GB of data plan - $24.99 for one month, $41.97 for three months, $71.94 for 6 months, and $119.88 for 12 months
  • 5GB of data plan - $34.99 for one month, $56.97 for three months, $107.94 for 6 months, and $179.88 for 12 months
  • 10GB of data plan - $59.99 for one month, $74.97 for three months, $137.94 for 6 months, and $239.88 for 12 months

The discount gets bigger with the number of months you purchase in advance. When you look at the price per month, the plan looks like this: 

  • 2GB of data plan - $24.99/month becomes $13.99/month (3 months), $11.99/month (6 months), and $9.99/month (12 months)
  • 5GB of data plan - $34.99/month becomes $18.99/month (3 months), $17.99/month (6 months), and $14.99/month (12 months)
  • 10GB of data plan - $59.99/month becomes $24.99/month (3 months), $22.99/month (6 months), and $19.99/month (12 months)

Using the 10GB of data plan as an example, you get to save $40 per month when you purchase the plan in advance. 

These plans already include unlimited talk and text, hard capped data, and no overages. Additional data can be purchased at 2 cents/MB, which adds up to $20/GB.

  2. Might've had me interested up until I read "hard-capped" - kids aren't known for self-control, but they've always got to have data even if it's slow (good for learning such discipline). $20/GB for more is absurd nowadays. MintSIM has unlimited 128kbps fallback, which is enough for my kid to watch YouTube at low resolution if he's desperate enough (& he has already done so).

    Heck, for an effective $25/line - INCLUDING taxes & fees - MetroPCS & Boost have 4 unlimited lines $100/mo. If you've got a family to equip, there is no better deal that I'm aware of.

    Not bad, FreedomPop - you're finally realizing you need to get with the times, but nowadays that means never being without data - even if it's slow. At the very minimum you need to cut that overage price in half, though. I'd also add the option of unlimited fallback data for $2-4/mo (depending upon if it's 64kbps or 128kbps) - that way you'd meet MintSIM's features, but still technically beat them on price.

    Still not gonna beat the carriers' own MVNOs when it comes to unlimited offers for families, though.

  3. Where can one get more info about this? Don't see anything on the Freedom Pop website about these plans.

  4. Never mind, I found out the info I was looking for. Looks like the "catch" is MMS & voicemail aren't included in the prices shown in the chart. Once the $7.99 add on is purchased, Red Pocket is still a better deal. . . . . .

    1. Wait, basic (dial-in) voicemail isn't free?

    2. No it's not. FreedomPop is basically a data-only service with an optional VoIP calling and OTT messaging app. You don't have to use the FreedomPop app.

      I use Google Hangouts with a Google Voice number for calls and messaging instead of FreedomPop's app. Voice/Hangouts includes unlimited free visual voice mail and voicemail transcription as well as MMS, all of which cost extra with the FreedomPop app.

  5. I know that the FreedomPop haters will descend on this article, any minute, so I'll go on record as saying that I've used FreedomPop for a number of years and like it. There are a few things I'd change but I'm still reasonably happy with it just the way it is.

    I think the AT&T products are their best offerings but I also use and like their Sprint and Global products, as well.

  6. What network do the paid plans run on? Does this include "real" voice service or VoIP service?

    1. Great question, no mention of that on their site. A bit disconcerting that you have to give an e-mail address to get any info.

    2. Nothing mentioned about voice and text limits?

      Delete
    3. FreedomPop SIMs use AT&T. Most of the phone and hotspots they sell are on Sprint although a few are on AT&T.

      Last sentence of the post; "These plans already include unlimited talk and text".

    5. It uses VOIP service.

  7. FP needs revenue to keep it's investor happy but when 90% of your users pay nothing that makes it difficult to survive.

  8. Was not aware that freedom pop still existed. It would seem I'm doing just fine without them--and that's a good thing.

    1. Well the small number of posts here is evidence that they could probably go away and no one would miss them.

  9. VOIP-only is DOA

  10. Freedom Pop can't be trusted.

    Well, as far as a BYOD to FreedomPop, Huawei's are getting more scarce.
    Word is that Best Buy has already stopped ordering Huawei phones & will cease selling them in a few weeks (i.e. Huawei Mate10 Pro, etc.)

    1. Best Buy is promoting through displays in their stores the Cricket promotion of Huawei Elate $65 phone reduced to $35 with a $30 refill card and activation bundle.

  12. Freedompop is very good for the free plans. But they have not thought through their paid ones. For example, MintSim is better as it is soft capped and you get a real number even though slightly more expensive. I would be more nervous about committing longer term to Freedompop

  13. Freedompop is preventing multiple orders for the same address.

  14. Those 1 cent sims were so good.

  15. Yeah, this is all nice but what about how it compares to MintSim?!
