Wireless service provider Ting today dropped the price of its data to a mere $10 per gigabyte, making plans more affordable for its customers. Specifically, this is the cost of data after the first gigabyte.
At just $10 a gig beyond the first, Ting’s pay-for-what-you-use approach is the best choice for most American cell phone users. – Michael Goldstein, VP of Sales and Marketing for Ting
Starting today, it’s cheaper than ever for current and potential subscribers to sign up for Ting. Nearly every rate plan is getting a slight shakeup which benefits the user. Here are the affected plans and their respective pricing.
- Medium (Up to 500 MB): Was $12 Now $10
- Large: (Up to 1 GB)Was $19 Now $16
- XL: (Up to 2 GB)Was $29 Now $20
- XL+: Was $15/GB Now $10/GB
For those who already have Ting, the new plans are more aligned with how the rest of the wireless industry sets plans. By adopting the new setup, it is easier for potential customers to make comparisons with other carriers.
Ting is a no-contract service provider who supports devices that run on Sprint (CDMA), AT&T (GSM), T-Mobile (GSM) and Verizon’s (CDMA) cellular networks. The carrier offers phones from a variety of hardware makers (Samsung, Alcatel, BLU, HTC, Huawei
Kyocera, LG, and Motorola) but also has a Bring-Your-Own-Device policy, too.
