Full disclosure - Ting is my mobile provider of choice. I may write about the constant tug-of-war between the big four American carriers, but at the end of the day, I refuse to sign a two-year contract with anyone, and T-Mobile has precisely zero coverage in the drastically non-urban corner of the US that I'm from. Thankfully, I have options. Ting is celebrating its two-year anniversary this week, and it's doing so by slashing its data prices.
While I personally had not heard of Ting until today, the Tucows-owned Sprint MVNO operates on a pay-per-usage billing model, providing voice and data service on Sprint's complete network (including LTE). The company launched its first Android app in the Play Store today, designed to help you monitor your Ting account.
The Ting app may not be jam-packed with features, but it is decidedly clean and simple, and there's nothing wrong with that.
