Ting Slashes Data Prices for Two-Year Anniversary
Ting, an MVNO that operates on Sprint's network, today celebrated its two-year anniversary by dropping its mobile data prices. Before today, Ting offered various data plans (XS, S, M, L, XL, and XXL) that ranged from $0 to $60 per month. The XS plan still costs $0 per month for zero data, and the S plan still costs $3 for up to 100MB. The M, L, and XL plans have been lowered to $12 for up to 500MB, $19 for up to 1GB, and $29 for up to 2GB, respectively. The top-end $60 plan has been axed, and Ting lowered the overage rate from 2.25 cents per megabyte to 1.5 cents per megabyte. Ting also added 100 free minutes to its top voice plan and 800 free messages to its top messaging plan. The new plan rates are effective beginning today.
