Awesome! From reading their FAQs, I would have expected that they don't roam at all, but now that I re-read it, they don't say they don't roam, they just say we don't need to worry about roaming charges.
I can confirm that FreedomPop LTE SIM card roams onto regional carrier's tower in Terlingua Tx 79852. I use the FreedomPop LTE SIM card in a 4g router and have never had it disallow streaming (to conserve data, I generally don't load images nor do A/V streaming but if I choose to it works)
FreeUp is showing no coverage in that area but I don't have a FreeUp SIM card to test if it actually will work or not. Can anyone confirm ANY area that FreeUp roams especially if their coverage map shows no coverage?
Unfortunately (for me), I'm seeing 4G coverage all along route 111 according to the FreeUp coverage map and it doesn't mark it as roaming. I see at least one cell tower along route 111 that according to OpenCellID, is an AT&T tower.
Can anyone identify any area where FreeUp shows to NOT have coverage but in actual testing with a FreeUP SIM, coverage IS found?
I went ahead and ordered the SIM card. Honestly, it is probably the only way I'll really know if it will work here or not. Who knows if FreeUp has some way of picking and choosing which towers to roam onto. Worst case, I'll be able to use it when I travel most anywhere away from here but possibly I'll be able to use it here as well.
You (and anyone) can install an app such as Tower Collector to help map out coverage and possibly learn more about the towers we connect to.
