Ting Wireless recently announced that they plan on expanding service by offering plans that operate on a GSM network. Currently Ting offers no contract cell phone plans that run on Sprint's network. The pseudo carrier offers plans a la carte, so you only have to pay for what you want to use. Don't want talk or text? You can sign up for data only. Do you want to be able to just text without a need for voice or data? You can choose that as a plan as well. The new service is set to go into effect in February of 2015 and from the looks of their coverage map, it would appear GSM based Ting will be operating as an MVNO on the T-Mobile network.
Ting says you'll be able to manage all of your devices from within one account. If you have both CDMA and GSM devices in your account, you can share your minutes, data and text with all your devices at no additional charge. Ting claims this to be an industry first. To signup for this new service all you'll have to do is pop a Ting SIM card into your GSM compatible phone.
Joe is the founder of BestMVNO.com. He started BestMVNO in 2013, because like many of you, he was unhappy with the high price he was paying his wireless provider for cell phone service. After researching how to cut costs on his phone bill, he came across the terms 'MVNO' and 'prepaid wireless', and learned there was a way he could keep using his favorite network without having to pay a premium price for it. Since then, through BestMVNO.com, Joe has been sharing his research about MVNOs and prepaid wireless so that others can learn how to save money on their own phone bills. Joe's current provider is T-Mobile Prepaid. For inquiries Contact JP
