Followers of FreedomPop’s saga have actually seen the fledgling data-only company make a few audacious claims: providing free of cost bandwidth, for one, and basing its 4G tool lineup as much on iPhone sleeve instances as on typical access points. Bring one more one to the list– the MVNO is organizing to switch from Clearwire’s WiMAX network to Sprint’s LTE prior to 2012 is over. While FreedomPop is still organizing to go forward with WiMAX for the preliminary implementation, it’s now wanting to utilize tri-mode EV-DO, LTE and WiMAX modems and phone situations just months later on. We’ll see if that leads to existing iPhone 4 and 4S managers getting an LTE fix without having to spring for a new phone; marketing VP Tony Miller wouldn’t advise GigaOM more. Either method, it’s a mixed good thing for data abusers that may find themselves crashing that much quicker with the 500MB regular cap on free of cost information.
