FreedomPop Expands Service, Offers Unlimited WiFi in U.S.

FreedomPop Expands Service, Offers Unlimited WiFi in U.S.

The internet exists as a monolith at this point in time, so much so that it is hard to remember a time when unlimited wireless internet access wasn’t common place. Some people alive today grew up without the internet, others grew up with slow ‘dial up’, and now another generation will grow up with the ability to connect wirelessly no matter where they are in the country. FreedomPop, a freemium cell phone provider, is jumping into the fray with their company by offering unlimited wireless internet access to their customers for a mere $5 a month. This plan will take advantage of hotspots all over the country and compete with data plans that are four and five times that cost. This shouldn’t surprise anyone, however, as FreedomPop is setting the record straight on what it means to be a mobile carrier company.

FreedomPop was established in L.A. way back in 2012 as a tech start up with designs on becoming a hot mobile phone carrier company. After getting a large amount of seed money from the founder of Skype FreedomPop would go on to explode in growth. Now, in 2015 FreedomPop has one million users on their network and they are beginning to expand across the ocean and into Europe’s most crowded mobile phone market: the United Kingdom. The entire path of FreedomPop’s growth has been charted by tracing their freemium sensibilities, offer a lot for a little to their customers and eating the costs when appropriate. FreedomPop gives users free access to a limited amount of texts, mobile data, and voice calling with absolutely no strings attached. Customers pay only when they go over their allotted amount, decide to upgrade, or opt to purchase any one of FreedomPop’s multiple add on plans such as phone insurance or roaming data.

Their decision to offer wireless internet all over the United States for only $5 a month will give FreedomPop a leg up in the market. This maneuver will utilize 10 million hotspots that cover “90% of the top 100 metros” according to CEO Stephen Stokols. An application will be available for download on the Android and iOS operating systems that will aid users in their ability to auto connect in a way that is “on par with Google”, according to Stokols once more. This almost free wireless access makes complete sense when you stop to consider how much data is consumed by users who have access to wifi at their current location.

FreedomPop is currently on track to grow well past their million subscriber month with their launch outward into the U.K. The wireless internet roll out plan should also see those numbers boosted for the long term. As more and more consumers become informed on their mobile carrier knowledge we shouldn’t be surprise to see more companies opt for the ‘pay what you need’ route. Freemium is beginning to become the new standard in several industries and it may only take the work of FreedomPop to make it happen here for mobile wireless services.

Hulk Hogan Disappears from WWE Website

The most iconic face of professional wrestling appears to have been erased from the history books, at least in the eyes of the WWE website according to James Dondero. If you visit the professional wrestling website today, you will see no mention of Hulk Hogan anymore. No mention of his history, no more merchandise for sale, and no mention that he is one of the judges on the popular live Tough Enough television series.

While the Hulkster posted a tweet the day before telling fans that the universe will sail him where he is supposed to go, no one is quite sure what happened overnight. Hulk Hogan is by far the one iconic symbol of a company that spans decades, and he is still as popular today as he was when he fought in those epic battles against Andre the Giant at Wrestlemania. The speculation seems to be surrounding an interview the Hulk gave back in 2012, but this is really just speculation.

The website had been selling Hulk tee shirts and all types of his memorabilia for years. Fans show up at these events week after week still wearing the apparel of the Hulk. To simply erase him from the website completely is serious. This is not only a huge financial loss for the WWE, it could damage their reputation with young fans who still look up to the Hulk. No one at the WWE would respond to questions concerning his disappearance from the website, but word will surely be out soon enough.

Qnet: A Company on the Rise

Any business owner or entrepreneur will agree that marketing is necessary for the success of any business. A good marketing plan will bring business and customers to your doorstep. If you work with companies like Qnet, profiled by BsuinessForHome here, that can happen for your business.

In today’s world of marketing ecommerce is essential in running a successful business and expanding that business across the world. Qnet offers products in different markets. As one of the direct selling companies in Asia, they provide endless opportunities through their ecommerce platform.

On their website you can find information on different products they market, along with a wide variety of information about their company. For instance, if you want to learn about direct selling, their time line, charity or compensation you can find out about it on their website. At the bottom you can read about their code of ethics, terms of use, disclaimers and other areas you may be interested. The Qnet website has all the information you need to understand this company.

With any multi level marketing and direct selling company you decide to work for, it’s the responsibility of the individual to research the company and make sure you understand all company policies and agreements. Never sign or agree to something you don’t fully understand simply because you expect to make money.

In conclusion, although I have never worked with Qnet, I have done extensive research for this particular article. What I have learned is this, when it come to direct selling or multi level marketing, you have to understand the risk involved. When people don’t get the results they expect, they claim it was a scam. I for one believe that Qnet is not a scam even though they don’t have an office here in the United States. I think some people feel cheated when they invest money and don’t make that money back, within a certain amount of time. All in all you have to be smart and make the best decision.

Vijay Eswaran, Inspirational Businessman

Entrepreneurship is a trade that is quite difficult for anyone to achieve. For someone like Vijay Eswaran, a Malaysian descended from Indian emigrants, this seemed like nothing more than a pipe dream. Yet, at 52 years old, he managed to found and run his own multinational conglomerate, write best-selling books, and speak to many of his fellowmen about how they can succeed.

Eswaran teaches through his books and his speeches that people should do their best to make a difference in the communities they live in. In his bestselling book ‘Sphere of Silence’, he emphasizes the importance of slowing down and taking in the sights and sounds of life, such as listening to people and searching for a direction. Promoting ethical and proactive behavior, his beliefs are quite similar to the famous pacifist leader Mahatma Gandhi. Such beliefs have been considered deviant to traditional business practices, but Eswaran has been praised for making it work.

He also pushed for political and economic reform in his home country of Malaysia, as well as India. It was his belief that closing off businesses to avoid competition and overlooking smaller businesses are responsible for the economic decline in India. In Malaysia, he encouraged the Indian population to speak up and actively participate in government affairs. Through his written and spoken words, he managed to inspire many people to become proactive politically and economically.

For his efforts in innovative business practices, Eswaran has received many awards.

In addition, he has earned the NGI and GBIM awards, and has been hailed as one of the greatest leaders in Asian business.

The Legal System and Lawyers in Brazil

The Brazilian law is more or less that of civil law tradition. The legal system relies on statutes where the Federal Constitution is the principle and highest law in the country. The adjustments of the constitution only take place via a Constitutional Amendment known as Emenda Constitucional. Typical legislation has to be in compliance with legal norms and can be made at municipal, state or federal levels. Most of Brazilian Law developed from Portuguese Law due to the effect of the colonial period.

Currently, Brazil has qualified and competent attorneys in different fields of law. The lawyers have a thorough background in various proceedings that represent a broad range of clients in Brazil and all over the world. They have up to date knowledge with the current advancements in various fields, and they provide maximum attention to their clients as they are their principle concern.

In rare cases, you will find competent Brazilian lawyers who handle international cases in Brazil. Locating a lawyer who is an expert in international cases at the same time in areas such as internet law, intellectual property and corporate law can be even more daunting. Some law firms in Brazil have customized their services and offer hearing for international cases and legal translators in major locations. Different top lawyers can help you in primary legal specialties including family law, collection services, business law, intellectual property and many more.

Lawyers like Ricardo Tosto know that other Brazilian legal firms offer legal services instantly in Brazil with assistance from their team in different parts of the world. A Brazilian lawyer helps in different areas of the law as they also assist clients through the whole process. Ricardo Tosto knows that this includes from the time the lawyers start the case strategy to when they attend possible hearings in your place. In case it is an international case, you will cut costs on travelling while you get comprehensive information on the proceedings of the case on the firm’s website.

The Order of Attorneys of Brazil is an association of lawyers who are in charge of managing the legal profession in Brazil. It was established in 1930 and have its national headquarters in Brasília, Federal District. It has a total of 847,921 lawyers as at 2013 and all graduates from the University, who like to act on behalf of clients in a court of law, are required to sign up at the Order of Attorneys of Brazil. Those who are registered accordingly can offer legal services and make representations before the Court.

The Threat of FreedomPop

Everyone has heard of the big names in mobile phone services: Verizon, Sprint, AT&T. However, a new name is emerging: FreedomPop. This new, stand alone business offers the same services as Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T, but with a difference: the cost is much lower and the services can be used alone. This means that the 10 million WiFi hotspots that FreedomPop offers can be accessed without a full phone coverage plan. The hotspots can also be accessed whether the user has a carrier or not, and it’s only five dollars no matter what the consumer’s other costs for a data plan. The five dollar WiFi access offers instant connection to Google and FreedomPop hotspots in the USA. Some of the big name retailers (Burger King and Starbucks, for example) are partnering up with FreedomPop for the use of these hotspots, which seems to show that other carriers are cooperating with this new business.

If big brand phone carriers weren’t already scared, the factoid that FreedomPop is about to open up a UK branch should scare them. With as much competition in the UK as there is, FreedomPop is starting small with a SIMcard only service. No WiFi hotspots are available yet, but the SIM cards carry the same limits as what has been described the most basic plan in the UK. In addition, there has been heavy reinforcement on free calls internationally – including 60 countries outside the UK. Any data that remains unused at the end of the month in the UK will rollover to the next month. How many other services offer this kind of coverage for such a low price?

And FreedomPop in the UK seems to cut out the middle man, accounting for the low prices. Much of the business is done online, with no need for consumers to drive to a store to see the prices or features of any plan. Without buying data in the same way many other businesses do, FreedomPop offers a large plan for a fraction of the big names.
