FreedomPop today made available a new service that allows customers to share their mobile data with one another. The idea is to let subscribers who won't/can't use all their data in a given month share it with those who need it. In conjunction with the service, FreedomPop released a web-based dashboard that lets subscribers see how much data they have, as well as how much data their friends and family have (discoverable via Facebook and Twitter). Users can gift data to friends and family, as well as make requests for data from those in their circle. FreedomPop also rewards users for referring new customers with a 50MB monthly allotment in addition to their base data plan. FreedomPop resells access to Clearwire's WiMax network, though it will eventually switch to Sprint's LTE 4G network. FreedomPop offers 500MB of mobile broadband for free each month, with additional gigabytes costing $10 each. The company isn't selling phones; rather, it is offering a mobile hotspot and a laptop dongle. It expects to begin offering VoIP-based voice service in April.
