Ting Simplifies Rate Plans
Ting introduced new rate plans today that completely revamp the way the MVNO charges for service. The company previously offered fixed allotments of data, voice, and text messages, which could be customized individually. The new plans join the rest of the industry in offering unlimited voice and texting standard, and unlimited 2G data when high-speed data run out. Three main plans offer different high-speed data options. The "Flex" plan starts at $10/month, plus $5/month for each 1 GB of shared high-speed data. Ting's "high-speed" data includes 4G LTE and 5G access. The step-up "Set 5" plan runs $25/month for 5 GB high-speed data, all of which can be used for mobile hotspot. Finally, the "Unlimited" plan offers 12 GB high-speed data, 12 GB of which can be used for mobile hotspot, for $45/month. An Unlimited Pro plan offers 35 GB of high-speed data for $60/month. Ting operates on the Verizon and T-Mobile networks.
