Search SD for other threads on FreedomPop to get a feel for the service and the high pressure marketing, as well as ways to take the most possible advantage of it.
BEFORE THUMBING DOWN, REREAD THE TITLE AND THE BODY OF THE POST. The majority of the negative comments seem to be people skimming and not taking time to read the whole post.
Specifically, there is NO INCOME REQUIREMENT for WIRELESS service if you live in a zip code with an AVERAGE income below a certain level. My zip code has half million dollar homes, and has large low income apartment complexes and it manages to qualify. There ARE income requirements for discounted WIRED service, or the "cheap computers" (which suck)
If you aren't offered discounted service you either do not live in the right area, OR do not meet the income requirements. That doesn't make it a bad deal. It doesn't make it YMMV. It does not make it unable to be duplicated. Thumbing it down because you don't qualify is unjustified.
For example anyone in zip 77020 can get 1GB of FreedomPop for free, or unlimited MobileBeacon for $10.
Thumbing this down because you do not live in a qualifying zip code is no different than thumbing a Fry's deal down because you don't live near a Fry's or an Amex deal down because you don't have an American Express card. The title is clear, specific, and correct. IF you live in a qualifying zip code, you can get the deal. If you don't, I'm sorry that sucks for you, but it's not a reason to bury the deal and keep it from the people that do.
http://everyoneon.org/ is a charity. So, the ethical frame for these deals is different than that for most slickdeals.
Everyoneon.org is a kind of broker. On the behalf of deserving segments of the population they are negotiating with vendors for discounts. At the end of the day if you pick up one of the offers they have negotiated your relationship will be with the vendor, not everyoneon.org.
Clear (and now sprint) has long had a number of $10/month unlimited offers for their wimax service targeted at nonprofits. And the nonprofits can pass that thru to their staff, clients, etc. For example some schools do this for their students. For example some libraries have hotspots they loan out.
Each of the other vendors (Comcast, RCN, the job training providers, the hardware, etc. etc.) have a distinct story. Some of the offers are reasonable, others - it seems to me - are pretty weak. I make me think how the skills of slickdeals power users could be useful to a charity like everyoneon.org.
