FreedomPop announced Wednesday the launch of a new global hotspot and SIM card that will give users access to a free data connection in more than 25 countries.
According to FreedomPop, the new hotspot uses carrier aggregation across global operators to offer a seamless data connection.
Covered countries currently include United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Ireland, Portugal, Greece, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria and Czech Republic. The provider said it plans to add 15 more countries, including some in Asia and Latin America, by the end of this year.
The global hotspot is currently available for an initial price of $49.99 with the necessary SIM available for $10. FreedomPop’s wireless plans come with 200 MBs of free data per month, with the option to purchase more data for $10 per 500 MBs.
To fund the global hotspot initiative, FreedomPop raised more than $109 million in financing.
In 2016, FreedomPop said it also plans to expand into additional countries and announce more strategic partnerships with top global mobile carriers.
