DigitalTown CEO, Rob Monster, comments: “FreeUP Mobile is a pioneer in telecommunications and as DigitalTown advocates a ‘mobile first’ approach to the Digital Age, the partnership with FreeUP is perfectly aligned with our goal to have every US – and global – city become a DigitalTown with life-enhancing, habit forming technology available for free on web and mobile. Our mission is to co-create local abundance while achieving digital interoperability locally and globally. In the US, with FreeUP, we’re making it incredibly cost-effective, convenient and simple for everyone to reap the benefits that can be enjoyed when a city becomes a DigitalTown.”

FreeUP Mobile Founder and CEO, Rod Nakjavani, adds: “It’s exciting times for us at FreeUP Mobile as we gear up to roll out FreeUP 2.0 and add more monetization categories to the Rewards app and launch more competitive plans.
