LOS ANGELES, — 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.
“Major broadband providers are charging in excess of $500 per year for home Internet, and continuing to raise their prices – leaving consumers desperate for ways to cut down on their monthly bills for home Internet,” said Stephen Stokols, FreedomPOP‘s CEO. “FreedomPOP‘s early success in the wireless market has put us in position to offer home broadband users significantly discounted alternatives.”
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.
FreedomPOP‘s free wireless Internet model brings a new level of competition not seen in the US broadband market to date. Unlike most European markets, capped data plans for lighter consumption are not available in the US, leaving consumers to sign up for unlimited plans that can range from $45 to $60 per month.
Founded in 2011, FreedomPOP is America’s new telecoms company backed by Mangrove Capital, DCM and Skype Founder Niklas Zennstom’s Atomico. Its aim is to provide disruptive Internet services ensuring that no one is left off the “connected grid.” FreedomPOP launched its free broadband service on Clearwire’s 4G network earlier this year and is scheduled to go live with Sprint in early 2013.

FreedomPOP first announced plans to offer an iPhone sleeve back in March and since then it has been gradually releasing details of its innovative business strategy. The all-data Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) will resell first Clearwire’s WiMAX and then Sprint’s CDMA and LTE data services, but only after customers use up their monthly allotment of free data.
