DNP  FreedomPop announces new hotspot with access to Sprint's 3G network

FreedomPop, the famously “free” data-only internet provider, promised an upgrade from WiMAX to Sprint’s LTE by the end of 2013, and while the company may have missed that mark, it is now offering access to the carrier’s 3G network. A new $40 Overdrive Pro hotspot, available today, will connect to Sprint’s 3G in addition to 4G courtesy of Clearwire’s WiMAX network. Users will get 500MB of 3G/4G coverage for free each month, and can choose a monthly 2GB plan for $20.

FreedomPop says it will release several devices running on Sprint’s LTE spectrum later this year, in line with the carrier’s build-out. Even the addition of Sprint’s 3G is a big step up, though, as FreedomPop’s own network doesn’t exactly blanket the US. If you already own one of the company’s hotspots but want to upgrade to this one, you’ll be able to swap yours via customer service. Check out the full press info past the break.
