Pros / Thanks to its free 500MB offer, it's a fine choice for extremely light users.

Cons / Its website is confusing and there's no telephone support, so figuring out which plan you should pick can be tough.

 Verdict / However cheap its tiers might be, terrible support and slow WiMAX-era speeds make FreedomPop a disappointing mobile broadband provider.
