Eligible Ting Mobile Plans
Ting Mobile does not actually sell phone plans. Instead, the company bills its customers at the end of every month based on usage. Rates are not exactly the cheapest around.
Ting charges subscribers $6 for every line they'd like connected to their Ting Mobile account. Talk is billed at a starting rate of $3/month if 1-100 minutes get consumed. Those who do not use any minutes in a month get billed $0 for talk. Ting says the average customer uses 101-500 minutes a month which corresponds to a cost of $9. Text messaging also starts at $3/month if 1-100 text messages get sent. Customers who do not send any text messages during a billing cycle will pay $0 during that billing cycle. The average customer is said to spend about $5/month for text messaging service which corresponds to an allotment of 101-1,000 text messages a month. Data starts at a rate of $3 for the first 1 to 100MB of data consumed. The average customer spends about $10/month with Ting for data usage which covers usage of 101-500MB of data a month. Adding it all up, the average Ting consumer spends $30/month plus taxes and fees to get up to 500 minutes, 1,000 text messages and 500MB of data.
