FreedomPop has made a number of public announcements about its expansion into various foreign markets. The company was not exaggerating. Spain is the new territory in which FreedomPop has debuted. The company is sure to experience the same success here as it did in the United States and the United Kingdom.
FreedomPop debuts in Spain in a unique way. The company’s launch is through the WhatsApp messaging service. Interestingly, all calls through WhatsApp will be both free and unlimited.
The traditional business model FreedomPop employs is to present subscribers with a set monthly amount of free phone, text, and data. Upgrades come with a fee. About 40% of FreedomPop’s users upgrade to expand their usage.
Per Mobile World Live, the reason for the unique debut is due to WhatsApp’s massive popularity in Spain.
FreedomPop feels its service will grow massively and expects around a million users in only two or so years. As long as exceptional, cost-effective service continues to be provided, there is no reason why FreedomPop won’t succeed again.
