In Short

Ting is an MVNO (or mobile virtual network operator) wireless carrier that provides service in the United States using Sprint's CDMA, 4G WiMAX, 4G LTE and EV-DO network. Launched in February 2012 by Tucows, Ting has also announced that they will add support for a GSM network as well, though they have yet to name the network. Ting service does not require a contract, rather plans are prices in various tiers for voice, text, and data. Unlike other carriers where set limits are placed, Ting adjusts these month-to-month to match actual service usages.

Devices can be purchased via Ting's website to use on the network, and are generally the same models as popular Sprint devices. Ting has also recently added limited support for Windows Phone 8 devices.
