Like almost everything except air, Internet access costs too much. So I could not wait to get my hands on two new products that offer “free” online access.
The quote marks are there for a reason. The two offerings, FreedomPop and Karma, require up-front cash for hot spot hardware, and offer a limited amount of no-charge bandwidth. They do not deliver blazing speed, since both use an obsolete 4G wireless cellular network, but FreedomPop and Karma are decent options for basic Internet access on a tight budget.
