Tech Friday: Low cost or free wireless data based on apps

Posted By on July 4, 2014


For those of use experimenting with free wireless plans and wondering if it is possible to have free cellphone service WITH data, Freedompop is inching closer. So far my experience has been marginal with both the limited free phone service and wireless hotspot. Usually when using data I push my 500MB per month limit and found it worthwhile to pay the $3.99/mo to “bank” data for the future. Freedompop is weak in the customer service department and getting things straightened out is a test of patience … growing pains I suppose? Anyway, a recent Tech Crunch article highlighted a new approached being experimented with as a way to give customers additional free or low cost data — apps centered. For those using their mobile device for only a couple primary apps, this might be the ticket?
