THE GOOD

1GB of data free every month:

FreedomPop offers an amazing 1GB of data free per month for their home users. This could be exactly what you've been looking for if you are on a budget and have simple Internet needs. You only pay the one-time fee for the modem and router, and then you get free data every month. Few 4G mobile broadband providers offer a free Internet package at all, and of those that do, FreedomPop is by far the most generous, so if this service interests you, FreedomPop's free plan deserves a closer look.

Affordable monthly rates:

FreedomPop is the perfect solution if you are looking for 4G mobile broadband Internet on a budget. Their most expensive plan comes in well below many companies' cheapest plans while still offering reasonable download speeds. Their data limits may be a bit lower than some other mobile broadband providers, but the tradeoff could still be worth it if you don't use the Internet that often. FreedomPop even offers a free monthly plan, though you do have to pay for the equipment. Few companies can match FreedomPop in terms of price, so if this is your primary concern when searching for a 4G mobile broadband provider, be sure to keep FreedomPop on your list.

Usage alerts keep you informed:

For a few dollars more, FreedomPop will send you email alerts that let you know when you are close to reaching your data limit for the month. The company is also working on making these alerts available via text message. This could be a really useful tool to have on your side that could save you from costly overages on your plan.

Purchase or earn more data:

If you find yourself frequently exceeding your monthly data limit, you will appreciate that FreedomPop allows you to purchase or earn additional data easily. You can earn data in one of two ways. You can participate in partner offers and promotions, or you can refer friends to FreedomPop. For each friend that you refer, you will get 50 MB for free. But what's really cool about this offer is that you continue to get 50 MB for free every month that your friend keeps their account with FreedomPop. And if you refer a lot of people, that could add up to a lot of free data for you.

THE BAD

No unlimited data plans:

All of FreedomPop's mobile broadband packages have data limits, with the highest being only 10 GB. This is rather surprising since many of FreedomPop's competitors offer unlimited plans, which can be really useful if you frequently watch videos or listen to music online, as these activities can use up your data quickly. Though FreedomPop does allow you to purchase or earn additional data, it just isn't the same as having access to a completely unlimited plan.

Must sign up online:

If you're interested in signing up for an account with FreedomPop, you are unable to do so over the phone, and must instead apply online. Though this may be ideal for many people, if you have questions or would like to speak to a real person about the mobile broadband packages, being able to sign up by phone or with an authorized dealer may be a superior option. That said, this shouldn't be a major issue for most people, and if you do need to speak to someone about FreedomPop's Internet plans, you can always contact a customer support representative prior to sign-up.
