There's an innovative company out in Los Angeles that's made it their goal to provide 100% free internet and mobile service. You might have heard of them — they're called FreedomPop . They hit the market in 2011 with the mission to provide all Americans with free service or at least an affordable upgrade. And as a special offer for Mobile Nations readers, they're now offering the Nationwide MiFi 4082 Hotspot for 80% off for the holidays, with free 4G internet service included.

Let's see the math…

  • Nationwide hotspot: $29.99
  • Power Bank 2000mAh USB battery: FREE, no strings
  • 2GB one-month internet trial: FREE, no strings
  • 500MB: FREE every month after trial, no strings
  • Shipping: FREE, no strings
  • Tax: Uncle Sam still needs to get his, sorry (varies by state)

So not only are you getting a serious price cut on a hotspot with a free 500MB of data every month, FreedomPop is tossing in a 2GB data trial for the first month (normally that'd cost you $19.99) and a free 2000mAh USB battery, and free shipping. That's just $29.99 (plus tax), out the door with all that and 100% free wireless internet service for any device.

And seeing as it's that time of year, maybe consider getting a few for your friends and family. You're giving them free internet when they need it out on the go, and they won't even have to pay a monthly charge if they don't want to. All they have to do is charge the battery!

Here are the details
