FreedomPop: A Company Moving Up The Ranks With Incredible Agility

FreedomPop will soon become a household name for wireless and mobile phone service. It’s affordability in Wi-Fi and mobile service supercedes most, if not all, other Wi-Fi providers. It’s Wi-Fi network is owned by a number of various ISPs and popular assemblage. There are many places FreedomPop’s Wi-Fi operates, though providers were not disclosed in an interview by Steveball/Shutterstock from FreedomSpot’s CEO Stephen Stokols. Some of the names of these highly publicized malls and other popular areas are: Starbucks, McDonalds, Panera Bread, Walmart, and Home Depot. Also included are such great names as Google,and AT&T Since FreedomPop is not joining with Boingo, the airports at present, will not have their Wi-Fi.

This FreedomPop review says they have developed an Android device to tie the various networks together. This app will act as a schematic for the ten million Wi-Fi locations. When thse locations are available the app will log device to the access point when they are accessible. This implements reliable links at Wi-Fi locations that utilize encrypted connectivity. When ISP’s acquire newer Wi-Fi technology FreedomPop will be able to move its app to new login automation. Although FreedomPop plans on superceding Sprint in terms of technology, FreedomPop will be engaging the usage of almost any device one has lying about that has a Wi-Fi radio. FreedomPop can connect these old devices that are now defunct from major cellular service. Though FreedomPop is in it’s infancy they are climbing at a swift competitive rate with their Wi-Fi economy. They are producing a low-fee Wi-Fi connection with unlimited use at 10 million WiFi locations. The company reports that 90% of mobile user data is Wi-Fi connected. Their Wi-Fi capabilities can utilize a users’ multiple devices through their Android app. There will soon (within two weeks at the time of the article dated 1/21/15 submitted by Ingrid Lunden) be an iPhone app as well. The company is offering, though somewhat limited usage, 200 minutes of calls, 500 texts, and 500MB data/month. According to Stokels this is a “standalone service” since it becomes a manner of bringing on new users from other providers or possibly from no providers at all. A business plan to attract abandoned phones( a user phone with no connectivity or cellular provider) is underway though, admittedly this particular enterprise does not create too much revenue.

FreedomPop is based in L.A. and is supported by many investors which include Skype’s investment company called Mangrove.

Stanford University Expanding Free Tuition for Low Income Students

Stanford University in California is taking steps to help students fight the burden of debt.

The renowned center of learning is offering free tuition for children whose parents earn less than $ 125,000 per year, and accommodation and free for those whose families entering less than $ 65,000 a year meals.

Families with incomes under $ 125,000 must have ‘typical assets’ that are worth less than $ 300,000.

Folks at Handy have learned that students will be required to pay a contribution of $ 5,000 per year for their summer jobs, their savings or work part-time during the school year, which will also pay parents. Stanford also stipulates that this contribution can be covered by external grants or student loans.

The university annually supports large number of students from families with ample resources, and in 2010 the financial aid director said that on average families who have children in college have annual incomes of $ 125,000.

In total donations to Stanford reach $21,000 million.

Student loan debts have become a large problem in America, and according to a 2013 study, 69% of young people coming out of college had overwhelming debts they could not pay.

FreedomPop Is A Great Way To Save

I live on my cell phone, and I also have a tablet, a laptop, and a smart TV. I need the internet in my home constantly, because I’m always on one mobile device or another. It got worse when I purchased a smart TV, because then I wanted to stream movies through my TV, so I could watch them when I got home from work. I am very tech savvy, and I had joined a company that was supposed to give me unlimited internet. Things changed over time, and unlimited internet became only a few hundred gigabytes a month.

I figured that I could live within the means of my limitations, and even with my excessive internet use, I never went over my limit. My problem was, my bill was still pretty high for the internet, and each month the price changed. I never got the same price for any two months, even though I was with the company for one year. I was not very happy about the price changes, and I never could get a straight answer, as to why the price kept fluctuating. I decided it was time for a change, after my contract was up. My company did beg me to stay though.

Even though my company said they would give me different deals, none of them compared to what I found at my new internet company, FreedomPop. I absolutely love FreedomPop, because they have lowered my internet bill significantly, and I’m able to enjoy internet at home, as well as while I’m on the road with their Photon mobile hotspot. FreedomPop offered several different hotspots that I could take with me, so I would have Wi-Fi to use on my mobile devices.

I can even allow others that are on the road with me, to connect to my hotspot, so we all can share the internet. I chose to switch my phone over to FreedomPop as well, in order to save even more money. I save so much money now, I’ve put the difference in a savings account, and it’s really stacking up over time. I can’t explain everything that FreedomPop has done for me, but I can definitely say that I’ve saved a lot of money.
