LOS ANGELES, Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- FreedomPop, America's first free mobile service company, today announced its new paid mobile phone pricing plans for unlimited voice and text. The new plans are aimed at destroying the current industry pricing model and start at $4.58 per month, making a year's worth of service equal to less than a month of most large carriers. FreedomPop will continue to offer its free phone plan as well, which includes 200 voice minutes, 500 texts and 500 MBs of data 100 percent free.
"With these new pricing plans we are declaring war on an industry that has for too long taken advantage of consumers and only widened the digital divide," said Stephen Stokols, FreedomPop CEO. "We not only offer 12 months of comparable service for the price of 1 month, but all the billing complexity that frustrates users is gone. There is no need for an annual contract when the total annual cost is under $100."
The company also announced that since it launched its free phone service in October 2013 it has experienced significant demand, signing up nearly half a million users to its beta invite list. To meet this demand, the company recently announced a "bring your own device plan" and is continuing to add additional devices to its portfolio, giving customers access to the latest smartphones. Today, FreedomPop added its highest quality smartphone to date, the Samsung Galaxy II at an introductory price of just $169 and plans to offer new LTE phones later this year.
"We're working hard to add high quality devices to meet the growing demand from new users. The Samsung Galaxy II is our most advanced device to date and we plan to add even more high-end options in the weeks to come," added Stokols.

FreedomPop provides disruptive mobile services so that no one is left off the "connected grid." Launched in 2012, FreedomPop is rewriting the rules of the American telecoms industry and is backed by Mangrove Capital, DCM and Skype Founder Niklas Zennstom's Atomico. The company offers consumers access to free high-speed Internet and mobile phone services nationwide.
One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, William (Bill) Meehan, director of utility solutions for Esri, will take a closer look at the current state of spatial technology and ar...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
