The internet of Things is about technology that allows devices such as kitchen appliances, cars, street lamps, and other electronic devices to sync with each other. This makes it possible for devices to connect and share data using the same network in order to increase their efficiency and decrease waste. According to Jason Hope, The Internet of Things has the potential to change the way that businesses operate and is a really big advancement.

Smart technology is convenient and is the way of the future and will make our daily lives safer. Public transportation can have significant improvements because of the Internet of Things and there can be better monitoring of maintenance issues for trains and even better mapping of bus routes.

Right now in the world of cell phones, one of the biggest subjects is data. Everyone offers talk, text, and basic phone options, but when you get to data plans, they can really be expensive. A lot of cell phone companies are now offering free or large data plans to use on your phone, but when you want to use your table, laptop, or home computer, you have to have a separate home internet plan or you have to pay a large amount of money for a hot spot unit and a hot spot data plan, and again it is for a limited amount of data. This can be very expensive, plus when and if you are able to add more data, it usually runs you the cost of at least $5 per GB which you can use pretty fast. So of course, everyone is looking for that great deal of either unlimited or a significant amount of data on a hot spot type plan. Well FreedomPop is now offering that service.

FreedomPop is offering the newest thing in cell phone deals; they are on a mission to take customers away from other companies by offering free plans that include basic text, talk, and data plans and have now added another bombshell: unlimited Wi-Fi service with free sign-up hotspots for just $5. With other companies charging a large fee for internet and hot spots, internet plans, and expensive top off fees for hot spots, this is quite a deal. Statistics are showing that up to 90% of data being used is from use of Wi-Fi.

They will be offering ten million hotspots to well over 100 million people in all the large key cities.This will enable customers the use of several devices off of one hot spot and would mean they could run their home computers, laptops, tablets, Kindles, and iPods off of one hot spot using it for internet service. Right now they are offering services through an app for iPhones but as of yet, have not offered an app for a Windows app and are working to get their service to equal that of Google’s. This Wi-Fi service is brand new to FreedomPop and has just been added because they wanted to be sure that the service would work without any problems. FreedomPop is planning on adding a minimum of one million customers this year with this service. The company is planning to extend their service to Europe later this year.

FreedomPop has also announced that they will be offering services in Britain, but will be a sim-card service only. This means that you can only bring your sim card with you, not your phone from another carrier. They will be offering a basic free service that will offer three services including 200 talk minutes, texting, and MB’s of data which is what most companies in Britain are offering. This will also include free calls to 60 other countries, free calls to other customers of FreedomPop, and a set amount of data which will roll over for other months. They are getting ready to launch a new program called JetSetter which is a free data roaming program that will be available later this year. It will give customers free data (high speed) each month to use in Britian, France, and Spain and will be expanding to other countries later on.

Helsinki is now offering its citizens city-wide, free, unrestricted, top-of-the-line, high-speed wireless internet access. Although it is not completely a blanket coverage, there is a Wi-Fi hotspot nearly everywhere in the city. In addition, their free wireless is faster than most paid wireless options and does not require users to enter passwords or any personal information.

Keith Mann has learned that it all began recently while city officials were having Wi-Fi installed in their buildings. While in the process, specifically in preparation for a 2006 meeting of Asian and European heads of state in the city, they decided to go ahead and make it free to the public. The government of Helsinki is able to afford this because the income tax of Finland is so high. However, most people in Finland have less of a need for free wireless than anyone. Finland is known to have Europe’s most generous data plans.
