FreedomPop today announced the launch of its new Wi-Fi service, which pulls together more than 10 million hotspots nationwide.
The freemium MVNO will sell plans offering unlimited voice, text and data for $5 per month. Customers will gain access to FreedomPop’s aggregated Wi-Fi network via an Android app that automatically connects and authenticates. The service is available to any Wi-Fi-enabled smartphone or tablet regardless of compatible service provider.
FreedomPop declined to disclose which Wi-Fi providers it is partnering with for the service. But the coverage map the MVNO shows particularly dense Wi-Fi coverage in metro areas.
As Gigaom pointed out, FreedomPop’s Wi-Fi service should show up in businesses like Starbucks, McDonald’s and Walmart.
FreedomPop, which offers free and low-cost tiers for wireless service, has estimated it will have one million subscribers by the second or third quarter of this year. The MVNO has begun selling its own branded devices to keep up the customer demand for its service.
