FreedomPop is a mobile phone carrier for the consumer on a budget. Limited free plans are offered to customers in the US and Mobile World Live reports that it will be making its way overseas soon. The carrier plans to launch its service in Spain this summer alongside a free unlimited version of WhatsApp Messenger.
Spain is believed to be littered with users of the WhatsApp Messenger, FreedomPop says that 70 percent of cell-phone users in Spain use WhatsApp, which accounts for more than 90 percent of the total texting done with-in the country.
FreedomPop plans to give residents of Spain a way to communicate with friends and family with their new launch 100% for free by subsidizing any data used by the WhatsApp messenger.
FreedomPop launched in September of last year in the UK and announced that more than 100,00 consumers use their service. They project that they will be even more successful in Spain, aiming for the 500,000-1,000,000 mark by the time their service hits the 2 year mark.
In January of 2016, FreedomPop raised fifty million dollars in financing, planning to use the money to expand its market through-out Europe, Asia, and South America, FreedomPop is gradually becoming a force to be feared by other companies in the mobile-phone carrier market.
