It's already raised $16 million. I'm more concerned that the data-sharing angle of it won't pan out. Why do you think the business model isn't sustainable?

I find it hard to believe this will ever become a sustainable business. It needs the backing of someone with deep pockets such as Google to give it a fighting chance.

FreedomPop is an interesting startup. I like the business model of getting megabytes for referring friends, but I'm not sure I follow how sharing with your social network will work in practice. What incentives people to give up their data, and at what point do they do that each month?
