LOS ANGELES, Aug. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FreedomPop today announced a major new milestone: its expansion to Sprint's LTE network, guaranteeing high-speed LTE coverage across the US. Along with its network growth, the company is introducing a new FreedomSpot 5580 LTE mobile hotspot that will provide FreedomPop customers 500 MBs a month of 100 percent free access to 4G LTE network speeds with nationwide backup access on 3G.
"With LTE network coverage reaching critical mass, we are now able to offer our customers the fastest 4G service for free," said Stephen Stokols, FreedomPop's CEO. "We're taking our free Internet model to the next level, giving customers unprecedented access to the best mobile network performance available."
The FreedomSpot 5580 LTE mobile hotspot becomes the company's first device to run on Sprint's expanded nationwide LTE network, providing average speeds of 6 to 8 mbps down and peaks speeds as fast as 25 mbps. The portable hotspot fits in the palm of your hand, weighs only 3.5 ounces, and allows connectivity of up to 10 wireless devices. The FreedomSpot also boasts a bright, 1.54-inch OLED display, 10 hours of battery life on a single charge, GPS over Wi-Fi, and advanced security. As with previous FreedomPop plans, users will automatically receive 500 MB of free data each month, while having the ability to leverage their networks to share and request extra bandwidth from friends, and earn additional data by participating in partner promotions.
The company is also planning to introduce several other devices on Sprint's LTE network later this year, including smartphones through its new Freedom Phone plans.
