Through the new plan program, Facebook Members can sign up at NetZero and receive one free gigabyte of wireless data per month to give way to their friends via Facebook. NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband subscribers who receive free minutes will be able to claim them minutes via the NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband app and use them with any data plan, including the 200MB/month free plan.
How to get your own free 4G data:
Anyone with an active Facebook account can join the program and share data with their friends. To use the data however, participants must have a NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband data plan (including the free plan) and purchase either a NetZero Stick or the NetZero 4G Hotspot connection device.
Currently NetZero offers five plans, all of which are compatible with the NetZero giveaway. The plans include the Free – 200MB per month, the Basic – $10 for 500MB per month, the Plus – $20 for 1GB per month, the Pro – $35 for 2GB per month, and the Platinum – $50 for 4GB per month. After each month, participants of the giveaway will once again be awarded 1GB of free data that they can then reallocate to other Facebook friends of their choosing.
Additionally, to use each of these data plans, subscribers will need either a NetZero 4G Stick or the NetZero 4G Hotspot connection device. Throughout October, new subscribers will be able to purchase both devices at a discount with the stick being offered at $25 (normally $50) and the hotspot being offered at $50 (normally $100). The stick was designed with Laptops, Notebooks and Netbooks in mind, while the Hotspot allows up to 8 devices to connect simultaneously including tablets, smartphones, notebooks and netbooks.
