LOS ANGELES, CA – Following the success of family mobile phone plans in the U.S. market, FreedomPop today is launching the mobile industry’s first pre-paid family plan and the world’s first ever free family wireless bundle. Effective today, families can stay connected for free enjoy and unlimited voice calls and texts, plus up to 1GB of free data. Families can have as 10 lines per family plan with a $5 line fee per line. They can also purchase larger data plans starting at just $15.
In addition, FreedomPop is also offering an extra bonus 500 MB of free data for each family member -- the bigger the family, the more opportunities for free data. Family mobile phone plans have been a priority for the top carriers over the past two years, but carriers have increased data allotments instead of lowering the price point of the plans, making families pay for extra data they don’t use or need. FreedomPop is addressing the need for more affordable family mobile plans with the new plan aimed at value conscious lower data usage families. “For families with kids and home wifi, paying a premium for unlimited data is just a waste of money. Many families can’t afford more than $150 per month for mobile phone bills, and they are forced to pay for heavier data plans they don’t use,” said Steven Sesar, FreedomPop’s COO. “Now families can be connected for free, with no reason for any family member to be left off the grid.” Currently, similar family plans with the major carriers containing an equivalent amount of data, minutes and texts can cost $70 and upwards per month, with most carriers not currently offering an option for less than 10GB of data per month. With FreedomPop’s new plan, families can save more than $1,000 each year on family mobile phone service costs alone. Additionally, FreedomPop sells more than 200 models of refurbished and used certified phones at FreedomShop.com, which enables its customers to purchase a newer model phone at up to 80 percent off retail prices. FreedomPop phones may be used on either the AT&T or Sprint network. FreedomPop’s family mobile phone plans are available starting today at www.FreedomPop.com/family.
