Ting Mobile has some exciting news for its customers. Earlier today, the mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) announced that it has struck a deal with Apple. Based on the announcement, the MVNO will start selling the latest iPhones as well as offer AppleCare protection for these devices. Not to mention, certified used iPhone devices may be procured directly from Apple through Ting. Each iPhone purchased is eligible for financing of up to 24 months.
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.
Ting has decided to drop its data prices, and the carrier is doing it in a very unique way. After its customers go beyond the first gigabyte, each gigabyte of mobile data used thereafter, shared or combined across all handsets under one account, will be priced at $10 a gigabyte. For current customers of Ting, the price drop will apply in their next full billing cycle. As for new customers, the change in data prices will take effect immediately upon sign up.
Consumer Cellular, Ting, and Republic Wireless were among the wireless carriers that scored the highest ratings in terms of customer satisfaction, according to the results of the latest survey conducted by Consumer Reports. What about Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, the so-called Big Four wireless carriers in the United States? Consumer Reports rates them near the bottom of the rankings.
Have you got an unlocked AT&T or T-Mobile handset, and are currently looking for an inexpensive carrier for your smartphone? Look no further because mobile virtual network operator Ting has just announced that its GSM network service is now in "open beta." This means that you will not need an invite to be able to sign up for this service.
Do you subscribe to mobile virtual network operator Ting? You can now take advantage of its plans to get an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Ting has just announced that it will start activating unlocked iPhones on its network, provided that the devices are compatible with Sprint's network.
This is good news for Ting customers, especially those eyeing to get the newest iPhone models. Moreover, the MVNO is getting the iPhone 6 much sooner than expected, or at least compared to previous iPhone versions.
Following in Google's footsteps, Ting, a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), is taking on traditional telecommunications and cable companies by offering a fiber-based gigabit-capable broadband service.
Ting officially revealed its plans of acquiring Blue Ridge InternetWorks, a web service provider based in Charlottesville, Virginia that has already started creating its fiber-based broadband network.
Ting further plans to take advantage of Blue Ridge's 35 miles of fiber network and expand it in order to offer residents of Charlottesville gigabit speed broadband service at a price range not over $100.
Mobile virtual network operator Ting has officially announced that it will be providing both GSM and CDMA service to its subscribers beginning 2015. As of now, Ting uses Sprint's CDMA countrywide network, but the wireless service provider is planning to partner with a major GSM carrier in order to provide coverage for SIM card carrying smartphones previously not compatible for use with Ting's plans.
Ting has not specified yet which carrier it will be partnering with, but based on its forecasted GSM coverage map, there is a good possibility that the service will be provided using T-Mobile's network.
Mobile virtual network operator Ting will be introducing the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S on customer plans later this September. This should be delightful news to iPhone owners who currently do not have plans of (or have not gotten around to) owning the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Beginning September 29th of this year, Ting subscribers can activate their iPhone 5S's or iPhone 5C's that were bought through Sprint to the MVNO's plans. Or, they can choose to buy a reconditioned handset from Ting partner company Glyde, or from authorized sellers like eBay or Amazon.
