ET Deals: Free 4G LTE Internet for GSM Connected Cars from FreedomPop

If you’re using a GSM-based connected car – one that works with T-Mobile or AT&T – the FreedomPop SIM card will likely work without a hitch. You’ll be able to use the nationwide 4G LTE network right from your car without any long-term contract. And even if your car doesn’t support it, this data-only SIM card should work with other unlocked GSM devices too.

Once you pay just $0.01 for the three-in-one SIM kit, it will ship for free (a $6.99 value). Even better, you’ll get a one-month free trial for the 2GB Premium data plan (normally $24.99 per month). If that’s a good fit for you, you can keep that level of service going for as long as you’d like. Or if you’d prefer to pay nothing, you can drop down to the free 200MB basic plan.

Just remember that FreedomPop uses an “Automatic Top-Up” feature that will charge you for more data if you go over your allotment. If you don’t want to be charged, keep a close eye on your usage.

Note: Terms and conditions apply. See the FreedomPop website for full details, compatibility, and availability.
