It’s been nearly a year since a company called FreedomPop announced its intentions (through a cryptically ambitious press release, no less) that it planned to bring “free broadband” to data-hungry users nationwide.
FreedomPop has spent the past year trying to turn the wireless industry on its ear with its freemium mobile Internet service, but the Niklas Zennstrom-backed company is now setting its sights on replacing people’s pricey home Internet contracts.
Freemium wireless Internet startup FreedomPop made good on its word by kicking off its public beta earlier this month and hocking USB modems and mobile hotspots, but that launch left many of its would-be users asking one question: Where are the iPhone and iPod touch cases the company unveiled all those months ago?
Well, that wait is over… for some people, anyway.
FreedomPop, the wireless broadband company that started out offering free mobile data plans with 500MB of bandwidth for free, today began offering its Hub Burst modem for pre-order with an early 2013 expected arrival date. The modem uses Clearwire’s WiMAX network to provide customers with in-home broadband connections at speeds it claims exceed DSL connections.
So the phone comes with wifi tether preinstalled, but the default settings are for an ad-hoc network and after playing with the settings I still cannot get it to become a hotspot, does anyone know how to fix this?
