Cheap cell phone service provider adds Verizon as network partner


Ting, a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) that currently partners with Sprint and T-Mobile, is adding service over the Verizon network later this year.

“We expect that combining the best-rated cellular network in the U.S. with Ting’s award-winning customer service will further enhance our already very compelling offering,” said Tucows CEO Elliot Noss. Ting is a division of Tucows.

Ting customers will be eligible to use the Verizon network following integration with the Verizon system later in 2019.

Ting is adding service on Verizon’s network, dropping T-Mobile 

Meanwhile, Ting has extended its network provision agreement with Sprint through September 2020 and informed T-Mobile that it won’t renew its agreement effective December 19 of this year.

As a result, Ting will migrate away from the T-Mobile network by December 19, 2020.

Two team members have used Ting in the past. The provider has a “pay for what you use” model that’s best for people who don’t use their smartphones a lot. There’s no unlimited data plan option.

We don’t know what, if any, changes Ting will make to its rates once Verizon becomes an option for customers.

In the meantime, Ting is offering a limited-time deal that breaks from its typical pricing structure. If you sign up by July 31, you can get unlimited talk, text and 20GB of data for $20 through 2019. Service is on Sprint’s network.
