FreedomPop announced a new plan today, offering unlimited talk, text, data and tethering for just $20 per month. The one drawback, however, is that you’ll only get 1GB of 4G LTE data before the company slows you down the 3G speeds for the rest of the month. Still, it’s a pretty good deal compared to what most major carriers are offering here in the U.S.
The company originaly launched in 2011 with a plan to sell mobile hotspots and an iPod Touch case that transformed the media player into a full-fledged phone. Since then it has transitioned into a low-cost carrier, even offering up free service as a way to hook in new customers. After announcing today’s “Unlimited Everything” plan FreedomPop should have a better shot at holding on to those subscribers in the long run.
FreedomPop also unveiled its first round of LTE-enabled Android phones, which you can buy straight from the carrier. The list is heavy on Samsung devices, including the Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4 and Samsung Victory. The company already offers supports a number of Apple smartphones as well including the iPhone 5 and several older models for an Apple fans looking for a cheap data plan.
