Ting First to Market with 6G Mobile Network Technology

For immediate release

Ting mobile is very pleased to be the first carrier in North America to lay claim to offering 6G Mobile Network Technology.

The brand new 6G Mobile Network Technology promises to be at least twice as fast as the 3G standard for cellular data and market tested as feeling 2.7 times more legit than the 5G iteration of 4G network technology that forward-thinking mobile marketing and communications teams have already coined.

Ting turns five

Happy birthday to us, happy birthday to us. Etc.

Today, Ting is five years old. From our first public “hello world” blog post to today, it’s been quite a ride. Before we get too retrospective though, here’s the thing that probably hooked you to come here: The giveaways!

Five days of giveaways!

The daily promotions have ended! Thanks for your participation. Winners have been selected on Facebook and on the blog.

Watch us celebrate Ting’s fifth birthday from the recorded Facebook live stream below:


Ting drops data prices to $10 GB beyond the first gig

Today, we’re dropping our data prices to $10 per gigabyte beyond the 1 GB Large level.

If you’ve been looking at Ting but the data cost just seemed too high, you should re-do your calculations.

If you’re already a Ting customer, you simply pay less for data, starting with your next full billing cycle. You don’t have to call and threaten to cancel your account in order to get transferred to our retention department for us to extend this new pricing to you. Just as well really, given that we don’t actually have a specific retention department.

Take a look at the rates page to see some changes.

    They’re some of the most popular Android and iOS phones for sale in the Ting shop. If you’ve been thinking about an upgrade or know someone who could use one, now is a great time to take a look. So is tomorrow though, or next week. The price drop is permanent, you see?

    List of phones:

  • iPhone 4s refurbished [CDMA] (Black, White)  $166 now $138
  • iPhone 5 refurbished [CDMA] (BlackWhite)  $248 now $237
  • iPhone 5s refurbished [CDMA and GSM] (Gold, Silver, Space Gray)  $353 now $338
  • Galaxy S5 refurbished [CDMA] (Out of stock)  $338 now $298
  • Galaxy S6 [CDMA] (Black, White) – $633 now $597
  • International roaming on CDMA is no more

    When traveling, you typically have two options: 1) Pay often exorbitant international roaming fees or 2) Go local: Grab a pay as you go SIM card at your destination or an inexpensive “burner” phone and pay local rates instead.

    We’ve always advocated the latter, local approach. A local SIM card—purchased at your destination or ordered before you embark on your journey—will be cheaper than the cost of international roaming in just about every case. Even factoring in the purchase of a cheap burner phone, you’ll likely come out ahead.

    For now at least, Ting customers using the CDMA network exclusively won’t have this choice to make. International roaming on CDMA is no longer possible. Sprint (Ting CDMA network services are provided on the nationwide Sprint™ network) recently turned off international CDMA roaming.

    To be clear, roaming with Ting on a GSM network is unaffected by the CDMA roaming shutdown. If you have a phone that uses Ting on a GSM network or an active Ting GSM SIM card, you can use your Ting service internationally paying Ting GSM roaming rates. That said, we still advocate using a local SIM and a local prepaid phone service when traveling.
