Sprint MVNO Ting to support GSM starting in February 2015
Ting, the MVNO that currently runs on Sprint's network, made a curious little announcement today. In a rather epic video on YouTube (as epic as SIM cards can get, anyway), Ting announced that it will support GSM phones starting in February 2015.
WIth its SIM, users are free to switch to the Ting and bring their unlock GSM devices with them. It isn't clear which carrier network Ting will be piggybacking for support, but its projected GSM coverage map can be found here (opens in new tab).
In a blog post, Ting's Andrew Moore-Crispin describes how he service will work:
Are you any more likely to consider using Ting when it supports GSM phones in 2015?
