Got an email today from FreedomPop for their mobile wifi service - device - $9.99 and $19.99/month for 8gig

I have been using Your Karma for almost a year now and have been very happy with it.  This FreedomPop deal seems pretty tempting - anyone have experience with them?

  I still don't understand, "100% free plan comes with 4G LTE every month. However, for just $3.99/mo you’ll receive 500MB of 4G LTE data with nationwide 3G fallback." So there is a 100% free 4G LTE plan for 500M data? Does the 4G LTE actually work?

Despite the Sprint hype, some areas do NOT have good 4G LTE signal levels.  When that happens, IF you only have the free plan or the unit you have is 4G only, you may have a problem.  I have a different MiFi unit that can do either 4G or 3G.  When I do NOT have good 4G LTE signal levels, my unit falls back to 3G and a slower transfer rate.

4G LTE actually works if the signal quality is at a certain level - yes.  I like Sensorly coverage maps   BUT that is dependent on actual users using their app.  IF nobody runs there app in a given area, it shows white despite signal quality may exist in the white area.

I converted to 500MG per month at $3.99 per month with an additional option to bank unused portion total= $7.98 per month.FreedomPop Data Rollover your unused data and maximize your FreedomPop value -- up to 500MB/month!  This is in addition to the 500 MB for free on the free plan, so up to a total of 1 GB can be banked each month up to a total of up to 20GB of Rollover data.  The additional UP TO 500MG each month of free bandwidth comes from friends which can be gotten in the support forums.  Personally, I have banked 6.59 GB because of some months of very low usage.

Just be sure to use it at least every other month to avoid it being frozen out They froze one of mine and still collected from the credit card while making it impossible for me to use it.

The censorly map does not have much coverage at all. According to FreedomPop coverage map, I am completely in the 4G coverage area. But it was not working - haven't checked for a long time though. Is the 4G really LTE or some old WiMax coverage?

rated:
FreedomPop uses Sprint as their backbone, so the Sensorly coverage map should be set to Sprint.  WiMax is officially toast.  4G LTE is real, but signal quality is YMMV.  I also follow a bunch of guys who tower hunt for fun.  They have sections for each part of the country and keep up with tower changes.
