Ting is one of the newer MNVOs in the market, backed by Sprint’s network and offering rate plans that only charge you for what you use. They first opened shop two years ago, and in celebration of making it this far they’re permanently dropping prices on their rate plans.
Most of the price slashing came on the high end of Ting’s plans, especially in the data packages. Using between 100 and 500 megabytes of data will now cost a dollar less per month, but using between 500 and 1000 costs five dollars less. Even better, using between 1 GB and 2 GB of data has been shaved down thirteen dollars, which is a pretty substantial markdown. On top of those rate changes, once you’ve reached the 2 GB cap, you’ll only be charged 1.5 cents per megabytes as opposed to the previous rate of 2.25 cents per megabyte. This change also applies to minutes, which received a 0.1 cent reduction. To complement this rate change, the top XXL tier of minutes, messages, and data has been removed entirely, which you can see in the chart above.
These new plans take effect immediately for both new and existing customers, and they definitely look more attractive if you’re a heavy data user. Anybody on Ting happy to see these new prices?
