Following the success of its free basic voice and data services in the U.S., U.K. and Spain, FreedomPop announced its plans to expand the service to Mexico. The US-based startup MVNO has signed a strategic partnership with Dish Mexico, a satellite-based pay-TV and internet provider that is jointly owned by Dish and MVS Comunicaciones.
FreedomPop said it will offer a base level of text, voice, and data 100% free every month, ensuring that no Mexican is left off the connected grid. In addition, all users will get unlimited use of Whatsapp.
FreedomPop has seen tremendous demand for its free service and expects to reach 1 million users within its first few years. Users will also be able to purchase additional services like data rollover, a second international number from any country, online security, micro-financing and international calling for a nominal fee. They will also get unlimited free calling to other FreedomPop users in all the countries where the company is available.
