FreedomPop, the California based company operating in the US and UK, will launch a new MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) called Unreal mobile.
Until now FreedomPop focused on its free-of-charge mobile plan for customers with small needs, making money from their other plans.
With Unreal Mobile, they offer a full service carrier using the Sprint network.
Unreal will offer unlimited data for $15 per month, with no contract. Not only that, but Unreal Mobile number can be used on any device, meaning not only on smartphones but also on tablets and computers.
The way it works is a SIM card is needed for the main smartphone, that works with a regular voice network, then Unreal Mobile, with VoIP technology, allows the user to use different devices with the same number.
This announcement is a direct result of Sprint and T-Mobile merger.
Mauricio Sastre, FreedomPop SVP Strategy and Carrier Relations said “A year ago, there was no way Sprint would have allowed us to offer Unreal. Today, however, their hands are tied, as Sprint and T-Mobile are held up in regulatory approvals contingent on their ability to demonstrate that competition won’t suffer.”
