FreedomPop launches free unlimited home broadband

FreedomPop, America's new free Internet company, today announced the public availability of its new Burst home router device, offering 100 percent free high-speed Internet in the home or small office. FreedomPop's new home broadband device provides speeds faster than typical DSL and comparable with most major cable providers. The Burst wireless modem router is $89 and requires no additional installation requirements, contracts or cancellation fees, and can connect up to 10 devices wirelessly.

FreedomPop home users will receive 1 GB of free data each month and can earn unlimited data by adding friends to their network via email and social media networks, and engaging in partner promotions. The company also offers heavier data users a variety of cost-effective plans, starting at under $10 per month - 80 percent cheaper than today's DSL or cable offerings.

The $10 monthly plan, ups the cap to 10 GB while keeping speeds limited to 1.5 Mbps. From there, the cap stays at 10 GB, but for $5 or $8 more a month you can boost speeds to 3 Mbps and 8 Mbps respectively. In the paid tiers, FreedomPop is charging a half-cent for every megabyte overage.

FreedomPop's free wireless Internet model brings a new level of competition not seen in the US broadband market to date. It uses Clearwire's WiMAX network, which has been losing rather than gaining customers since Sprint (and now Virgin and Boost) switched away to Sprint's own LTE network.
