Ting Will Pay ETFs for Contract Breakers Who Switch
Ting, an MVNO that runs on Sprint's network, recently announced that it will pay the early termination fee of anyone who cancels their contract with their existing carrier and switches to Ting. Rather than offer a direct reimbursement or cash, Ting will credit the account of switchers with up to $350 per line, the typical maximum ETF charged by other carriers. The promotion runs from February 1 to February 28. Ting sells new and refurbished smartphones, and accepts select handsets from Sprint. Service plans start as low as $9 per month for 100 voice minutes, 100 messages, and 100MB of data.
