Galaxy Tab 4

FreedomPop has announced that it will offer 500MB a month of free 4G LTE data for tablets that supports Sprint's network, along with direct sales of Apple's iPad mini and Samsung's 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3 on their website.

The deal is the same as FreedomPop's previous offer for smartphones, which includes 500 messages and 200 voice minutes for free per month as well. If you want you can pay $7.99 a month for 500 voice minutes and unlimited texts, or $10.99 a month for unlimited voice and text, but the 500MB of data stays the same.

If you go over 500MB a month with those FreedomPop plans, it will cost you one cent per MB or $10 per GB a month. However, there's also a plan for unlimited data, voice and text for $19.99 a month. FreedomPop is also selling the iPad mini starting at $319, along with the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 starting at $199.

What do you think of this offer and is it a good deal for tablet owners with 4G LTE hardware?

I can get a better deal using Freedom Pop.

My Sprint prepaid plan is $60 a month.
Freedom Pop is only $79.99 for a full 12 months.

In switching my line over next week.

Doesn't FreedomPop use WiMax? If so, it's not using Sprint's LTE network, and has very limited access areas. Very few locations are set up with WiMax.

I was told they do have LTE plan if your device supports it. Otherwise it's wimax.

I got my freedom pop Hotspot with same free 500mb deal. But you need to watch out. Once you subscribe there are whole lot of hidden subscription with fees per month if you don't disable them right away.
Please read reviews of subscribers and make sure you disable those options with fees. It is very complicated to navigate around the site (comparing other providers)

Pros: definitely free 500MB and speed is acceptable for the tablets.
Overage charge is acceptable, only $0.02 per MB once you pass 500MB

Cons: hidden fees. Upto $35 extra per month if you don't watch out.
Spotty signals. Never had good experience while driving. Full signal on one spot but no signal across the street. (I'm in LA area)
Hard to trust "free" stuff now days. You will keep an eye out on your bank accounts more frequently for weird charges. So far no extra charges on my account (been with FP for 2 months)
I was told I need to pay money to talk to the customer service. (One of those weird subscriptions you'll need to pay) probably every options besides plain 500MB data, it will cost you.

This is my experience with FP so far. But yeah, if you can score free data why not get it?
Oh and please check and double check for your area for reception. Just because you have signals for sprint doesn't mean you will get same signal strength for FP.

The WiFi hotspot deal also gives you 500 mb free, which seems like a better deal, allowing you to use any WiFi device.
