Cablevision has launched its WiFi-based phone service that was announced in January. In contrast to typical mobile carriers, the Freewheel phone (currently a $100 second generation Moto G) does not utilize 3G, LTE or any other type of signal in order to maintain low costs. In cases where you are constantly in range of wireless hotspots, this shouldn’t be an issue, and the device is preprogrammed to connect to any of the 1.1 million Optimum hotspots in the New York area or “Cable WiFi” networks With no contract, it’s only $10 a month for Cablevision’s internet service customers or $30 per month for those without the service.

The company might roll out the service as an app for other smartphones as well, and promises unspecified features on the way.
