It appears that in the next few days, mobile virtual network operator RingPlus will be no more. But another MVNO, Ting Mobile, will be looking to benefit from major US wireless carrier Sprint’s upcoming shut down of RingPlus. Ting (which is operated by Tucows) currently provides coverage to 245,000 devices across 151,000 accounts, and during the final quarter of last year, it managed to gain over 4,000 new customers and 10,000 handsets.
Sprint has threatened to discontinue service to mobile virtual network operator RingPlus for non-payment, and it could happen by February 11th. Apparently, the MVNO has filed a lawsuit against the major US wireless carrier, claiming that Sprint is involved in fraudulent practices. Moreover, RingPlus is seeking in its filing to stop or at least postpone the shut down.
Sure, February 11th is still some five days away, and it is possible that RingPlus’ legal action could change Sprint’s decision, but for current customers of the MVNO, it may be best to start considering other options now, specifically in terms of looking for another mobile operator in which to port one’s phone number.
RingPlus, a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) that uses Sprint’s network, has added two more free plans to its range of wireless services. These two are the Truly Free Plan, which comes with no overages, and the Pepper Plan, which offers optional extra inclusions for a fee.
