MVNO FreedomPop is adding free data for WhatsApp to its basic free plan in the US. Customers get unlimited WhatsApp, plus 200 MB for other internet services and 100 minutes at no cost. In addition, FreedomPop said customers can make use of unlimited, free international data and texts to any US mobile line in 31 countries around the world, with no additional fees. This includes the US, UK, Germany, France, Portugal and Italy. The US WhatsApp SIM follows FreedomPop's launch in Spain last month, where the MVNO is also offering a zero-rated WhatsApp plan.
