FreedomPop today announced a major transition for the company: it is now offering LTE. FreedomPop is an MVNO that has heretofore sold access to Sprint’s WiMax and CDMA networks. The company has long planned to offer LTE access, and today that plan became a reality. FreedomPop is selling the FreedomSpot 5580 LTE mobile hotspot as its first LTE-capable piece of hardware. The mobile hotspot will fall back to Sprint’s CDMA 3G network in areas where LTE is not yet available. (Sprint recently expanded the reach of its LTE network to 151 total markets.) FreedomPop customers are able to access up to 500MB of data for free each month, though they can pay for more access if they so wish. FreedomPop plans to sell more LTE-capable devices, including the “FreedomPhone,” later this year.
