Sponsored access to mobile applications and content

Watch how Freeway can transform your business

Acquisition, Engagement, and Monetization

Freeway sponsored data services bundles mobile connectivity with applications. It lets content providers acquire, engage, and monetize consumers by removing the access barrier of mobile data. It helps mobile operators increase network utilization and raise ARPUs.

Freeway enables someone other than the consumer – a sponsor – to pay for the mobile data, freeing consumers to use and deepen their relationship with apps and content.

What is sponsored data?

Sponsored data – sometimes referred to as “zero-rated” data – allows consumers to explore and experience apps without impacting their mobile data plan.

Sponsored data temporarily removes the data charges to use a mobile app. A sponsor pays for the mobile data on behalf of the consumer.

Sponsored data reduces friction, is app and content specific, and is easily targeted to reinforce consumer behaviors.

Sponsored data promotes engagement

The prohibitive costs of mobile data results in billions of consumers rationing their use making it more challenging for content providers, application developers, and advertisers to reach, acquire, engage, and monetize these users.

  • More than 80% of consumers in Southeast Asia, Latin America, and other emerging economies have prepaid data plans. Wi-Fi is not prevalent and mobile data is expensive relative to household income.
  • Even in postpaid markets such as the United States, consumers regulate their consumption of mobile content, such as video and audio, in fear of exceeding their data plans.

Sponsored data removes the barrier of data charges, reducing consumer hesitancy to explore apps and content
