Cablevision today announced FreeWheel, a wireless service that relies wholly on WiFi networks rather than cellular networks. FreeWheel will offer unlimited voice calls (via VoIP), messaging, and data for $30 per month. Cablevision's Optimum Online customers will be able to use the service for just $10 per month. At launch, the service will work with the Motorola Moto G, which Cablevision is selling for $99. FreeWheel service can be accessed anywhere WiFi is offered. Customers will automatically be connected to Optimum Online WiFi hotspots when and where they are available. Cablevision claims to have 1.1 million public hotspots available. The service will be most heavily marketed in the New York City region, which is Cablevision's home market and where it has the densest number of access points. FreeWheel offers international calling and does not ask customers to sign contracts. The service and device will be available beginning in February.
Motorola's second-generation G earns solid marks thanks to tasteful improvements to the hardware and evolutionary improvements to the specs. It's a mid-range middleweight that puts up a good fight amongst its competitors.
Motorola's first Moto G has been their best-selling phone ever. It's just enough phone at a really great price.
