Securus defeats GTL by way of forfeiture February 9, 2017

Securus Technologies has established its place at the forefront of the prison communications industry. Yet some of its competitors, notably GTL, have insisted on being poor sports and disrespecting the venerable industry giant. Securus has graciously handled the ruthless vitriol and wild lies of its wayward competitor. But finally, it said enough is enough. GTL had built a bridge too far when it deludedly claimed that its video visitation technology was clearly superior to that of Securus.


The giant was waked from its benevolent slumber. It thundered at its opponent to present evidence of its parity or to cease its empty pleading at last. Securus, thus, offered a challenge. GTL would pit its video visitation system against that of Securus and the results would be judged by a third party. But GTL, in its craven frailty, declined. By forfeiture, then, Securus solidified its position as the undisputed heavyweight champ of the world of inmate communications.



Juggling two opposing interests


Despite the limp jabs of its opponents, Securus has performed admirably in a difficult and unique business climate. Securus has always viewed its sole mission to be in serving its customers and delivering the solutions that they need in a way that maximizes their individual satisfaction. While this may sound like a trite sound bite, it becomes much weightier when it’s considered that the two main customer groups who Securus serves are often at considerable odds. Those customers are prisoners and the guards whose job it is to control them.


How can one company create a product that serves two diametrically opposed customer groups simultaneously? The answer is in high-definition, low cost calls to inmates and a suite of investigatory tools and controls which help guards keep illicit activity in check. The needs of both of these customer groups can be met simultaneously through understanding both their needs and delivering with top-quality products.

FreedomPop Ties With WhatsApp Launches in Spain This Summer April 26, 2016

It has been confirmed that US-based MVNO FreedomPop will be launching its services in Spain offering limited free voice and data this summer. FreedomPop said it will mark the occasion offering their subscribers with free data for WhatsApp usage. All one has to do is simply install a SIM card from the company in their devices and free texting and calling will be offered to WhatsApp users. For a minimal cost, the free package can be upgraded to obtain more calls, text, and data allowance.

FreedomPop plans to target 500,000 to 1 million Spanish users in the next couple years. It will also offer users free roaming access to 31 countries, which will include the U.S., U.K., Germany, France, Portugal, and Italy, among others.

Stokols would not reveal which carrier FreedomPop will operate in Spain, except that this will be a major national carrier that will be announced when they launch it this summer.

Nicholas Constantinopoulos, president of Mobile World Congress in February told Mobile world Live that more operators are open to partnering with MVNO for monetizing data.

FreedomPop has raised an additional $50 million in financing. FreedomPop said it plans to continue its international expansion with launches in additional countries by the end of 2016.

FreedomPop’s New Attitude February 12, 2016

FreedomPop is the name of a mobile phone service company with wireless internet capabilities based out of Los Angeles, California. The company is local but has been looking to expand its base across the world, and has had some success recently.

Only this past January, the company announced that it had raised $50 million in financing for future projects, in addition to the $30 million already raised just six months earlier after launching its first service in the United Kingdom. The total amount of money raised was upwards of $109 million.

The funding from this latest fundraiser will be used to launch a brand new global hotspot and continue the growth of this mobile application to multiple countries and continents all across the world. The app is already known for having a unique way with cellular networks and allows its customers to have a single data connection anywhere across the world. Along with providing service in the United Kingdom, FreedomPop is also available for usage in other countries, such as France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain, to name a few locations. The company expects to have coverage available to well over forty countries by the end of 2016.

Before the mobile app can be used, however, customers will have to buy the device first and will then have access to the service. The global plan already in place readily offers 200 megabytes of data in all countries that have access to FreedomPop’s service and is also compatible with just any about smartphone. The company also offers a 500 megabyte data plan, for an addition $10 to whatever was originally purchased.

According to FreedomPop CEO Steven Sesar, the money gained in the past fundraisers will allow FreedomPop to thoroughly compete in the market and become a top global service provider.
