Ting, the MVNO that as of now runs on Sprint’s network, made an interesting tiny proclamation today. In a fairly epic video on Youtube (as epic as SIM cards can get, in any case), Ting declared that it will support GSM phones beginning in February 2015.
With its SIM, customers are allowed to change to the Ting and by bring their network unlocked GSM devices with them. It doesn’t state any words which carrier system Ting will be piggybacking for support, yet its anticipated GSM scope guide can be found here.
In a blog entry, Ting’s Andrew Moore-Crispin depicts how he service will function:
On Ting, your CDMA and GSM devices will be able to coexist under a single account and will share a single pool of minutes, messages and megabytes. At the end of the billing cycle, they will appear on a single monthly bill. As far as we can tell, this is a North American first and we’re pretty sure it’s a worldwide first too.
Are you any more inclined to consider utilizing Ting when it upholds GSM phones in 2015?
