Selling is Not an Option for FreedomPop

The data based mobile network, FreedomPop has finally announced it will continue to invest in new technology and network areas in a bid to create a company worth three to four times its current valuation. Recode reports FreedomPop’s founder and CEO had originally looked to sell the company, but was inspired by TV show Silicon Valley to remain independent and seek out new areas of funding. CEO Stephen Stokols has always admitted there was a strong chance the startup could be sold, but eventually decided the current offers were lower than anticipated and could be improved upon with some investment.

FreedomPop has grown to become a major force in the technology sector with one million customers taking advantage of free data packages, which limit use and create charges when data limits are exceeded. Around $30 million has been sourced in funding from a European venture capital company, which coincides with FreedomPop’s move into the European mobile networks field. Numerous bids for the startup have been received and rebuffed by Stokols, who stated a major retailer will soon be stocking FreedomPop hardware in store to help grow the brand. Alongside the growth of the company on an international level, Stokols believes a major partnership with a hardware provider will see FreedomPop increase its value from a reported $250 million to closer to $1 billion.

North American Spine Recently Covered on Good Morning Texas and WDRB

On July 1, WFAA Good Morning Texas featured a segment on the show about North American Spine. They discussed how the AccuraScope procedure worked for those with neck and back pain. Dr.Basem Abdelfattah discussed how the procedure works on the show and how it is used to treat back and neck pain. The host for this segment was Carrie McClure.

The AccuraScope procedure does not involve major surgery and is a minimally invasive procedure. This procedure takes less than one hour to perform so there are no overnight stays at the hospital. The procedure is generally performed in Dallas Texas. They use a small laser smaller than the tip of a mechanical pencil. Many patients come from other states to have this procedure done.

The AccuraScope is used for lower back pain, neck pain, herniated discs, bulging disks, bone spurs, and degenerative spine diseases. An incision is made in lower spine. A steerable catheter is inserted so the laser and camera can do the job. The procedure treats multiple layers of tissue and bone with less trauma to the body.

Many patients that have had the procedure say that the procedure relives the pain and they can get back to an active life. North American Spine doctors will diagnose each patient to provide the best treatment for their condition.
