FreedomPop rolled out a new family plan (2 to 10 lines) for $5/line/month. It gives you unlimited talk & text with cellular voice (Premium Voice), MMS/Group Messaging and Visual Voicemail. It uses Sprint.
Minimum two lines. It includes free 1 GB data shared across lines (with additional data packages available.) And at the moment there's no BYOD.
Agree. We used it for the first month free trial and it was great. For now, not willing to pay $3.99/month for it. FP's VOIP still has some work to go... Our numbers are all in Google now so we've just been using the free data to make calls via Hangouts.
Calls on Hangouts for us are very clear and smooth but have some latency. We have a mix of BYOD (using Sprint's LTE) and the GSM LTE SIM (on AT&T's LTE). The LTE SIM gets faster peak/average speeds but has more latency....
Seems like the use would be for those who need unlimited premium minutes, but little data. Premium voice is only $3.99/mo for a free plan. A similar single phone plan would be their Premium 1GB which is $19.99/month, so, cheaper than that. Assuming Premium 1GB actually has the same "free" services. So, I can see this being of value to those who need the minutes. We're data folks, don't need minutes, need data! But not bad.
Does anyone use this family plan? Does the plan use AT&T? Is it true cellular now that Red Pocket owns FP. $10 for 2 lines of unlimited T&T and 1GB of shared data sounds great. Website shows you can BYOD unlocked GSM phone.
