FreedomPop GSM LTE Sim Card

The freedompop sim card is now fully 4G LTE now. Yes, you are reading this correctly. FreedomPop now has another official partner in At&t. At&t sims run off GSM. FreedomPop at first was only using Sprint which is CMDA. Now there are 2 LTE partners! This is now a good thing. For the price of the sim which is $4.99 is it worth it?

The new sim will work in phones that use At&t and T-Mobile and fully unlocked devices. The new GSM sim card has great data speeds. Based on my findings I haven't come across any throttling of speeds. Some pings were very high. But as I was out in about yesterday in Collinsville, IL, I saw speeds over 20-30mbps down and 10mpbs up! Must I remind everyone this is 4G LTE At&t networks speeds. Using this new Freedompop sim is the real deal At&t power. I was very impressed and even surprised.

BROWSING

Browsing the internet using Chrome was a smooth experience. I was able to surf the web with no problem at all. Was able to watch videos without any issues and download articles for offline access using the At&t network. This was very awesome.

APPS

My apps were running good with great loading speeds opening and closing and posting and commenting with my social network apps were pretty good. Even the Twitter app runs well.

Using the Youtube app was pretty good as well. Didn't see any buffering and load times of videos was great as well. I even downloaded some youtube videos and downloads were very fast. Took no time at all to download the videos I wanted to watch for later. This is another plus in my books.

As far as messaging goes messaging has been a breeze and very snappy. Using WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Hangouts they all ran very well using the At&t LTE sim from Freedompop. Makes you want to smell the fresh cold air. Ah. The feeling. These apps will barely touch your data. So keep that in mind.

WHAT ABOUT THE CALL QUALITY?

As far as call quality goes? Superb! Now I wasn't using the stock dialer app on my Nexus 5X. I have been a big fanboy and somewhat of a Guru for the application Google Hangouts. Hangouts allowed you to link your project Fi number to the app for calls and texts (SMS). You can also message other hangout users as well. You can even video chat within the application too. This is why I like hangouts a lot. That the fact I can answer my calls and messages right from my Galaxy Tab or even PC. I love the flexibility in this application. But Hangouts had its fair share of downfalls. The thing this time around is that calls came through crystal clear! I was able to talk and no echoes or no dropped calls. Everyone I had a conversation with while using the hangouts app running on the LTE said "WOW" "I can hear very clear now" "Amazing". Those were their exact words as I asked them.

The Verdict

Although a lot of people say FreedomPop isn't a good service and you should skip over their plans and how they set up things, this new sim card is a monster! No, you won't be able to use the stock dialer app with their service, but there are other alternatives out there for calls such as Hangouts, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and Skype. You do have to pay extra for MMS messages even using their app. But if you use the apps mentioned you won't need their MMS plan. That is not included in the $0/month package. With the 100% Free Service, you get 200 minutes, 500 texts and 200MB of data. But, you can send a friend request to earn and share data. FreedomPop did not put a cap on how much data you could get for free but only for the friend requests which is capped off at 500MB. If you download their MyFreedomPop app from the app store or Google Play you earn an extra 200MB for downloading the app using the same login account. So, now you are up to 900MB/monthly for free! They do have monthly plans that you can pay for if you choose to and extra services to enhance your mobile use. But that wasn't their attention getter. This is a phone service that everyone should get now, even if you don't feel you can benefit from it. This will lower costs down of your original phone bills! Knocking off 100s of dollars each month and year. Now, that they are using full 4G LTE on At&t, this is a MUST service!

Overall, you can not beat nor ignore the "100% Free Phone and Internet Service".

FreedomPop, you have finally disruppted the mobile industry!
