Ting currently offers service on every US network except for AT&T. They originally offered plans on Sprint and T-Mobile, and as of February 2020 also provide service on Verizon. In August 2020, they were purchased by Dish Network.
Ting does not offer plans per se, but rather you can select how much data, talk, and text, you want each month. Their data is $10/GB, so any service with high data use will be quite expensive.
The plans that are available to customers directly through Ting's web interface are not supportive of typical nomadic internet needs.
Ting's standard line-up of plans is based on a 'choose your own adventure' model - where you can choose the number of lines on a plan, and then from a range of voice minutes, text messages, and data by the MB/GB.
While the plans don't require you to include voice/text, the price per GB ($10) can quickly add up.
Voice, text, and data is shared amongst all the lines ($6/line) on a Ting plan.
T-Mobile Merger Notes
Sprint is now part of T-Mobile, as per the merger that closed on April 1, 2020. The two carriers still operate fairly independently with their own towers and frequency bands. As of August 2020, new Sprint customers are directed to T-Mobile to sign up for their plans, however some of Sprint's legacy plans are still available in store or over the phone.
Customers on existing direct Sprint plans will be able to retain those plans for the next three years without price increases or changes to features.
At present time - aside from Boost being sold to Dish Network - there are no changes to 3rd party, reseller, non-profit or MVNO plans sold on the Sprint network. However we are continuing to monitor the situation and will update as appropriate.
