Ahead of the company’s plans to roll out LTE service and a new iPad clip through Sprint’s network later this year, wireless provider FreedomPOP announced today a new roll over data feature that allows users to keep their unused data from one month to the next. As to be expected from FreedomPOP, the service will also let users share data with friends as part of its social broadband feature that it enhanced last month.
FreedomPOP told us the new roll over data feature is now available to all users. It also said that “30% of FreedomPOP’s users have opted into this value-added service within the first 24 hours it’s been live.”
FreedomPOP is a wireless provider offering customers free 500MB to 1GB per month data plans through devices such as its $99 WiMAX sleeve for iPod touch or the recently announced $89 Burst 4G home wireless router. It also has an iPhone 4/4S case that is awaiting FCC approval. Last month the company announced an additional $4.3 million in Series A1 funding, increased additional data rewarded for referrals from 10MB to 50MB, and expanded its social broadband sharing platform.
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.
