Ting Wireless Coverage Map
About the Ting Coverage Maps
Ting® is a newer prepaid cell phone service provider that offers service on the Nationwide Sprint® Network, like Boost® Mobile and Virgin Mobile. Though generally reliable in areas where coverage exists, venturing outside those areas proves to provide patchy coverage at best. It appears to offer the same coverage as Sprint, but zooming in closer may reveal otherwise in certain areas.
Coverage Available from Ting
Ting offers coverage[+] on the same network as Sprint®, though Sprint’s coverage is spread further. Though coverage is available nationwide, it is not as far spread and as reliable as coverage provided from other major networks such as AT&T® and Verizon®. 3G, 4G, 4G LTE, and WiMax coverage are available, though not in all areas. Virgin Mobile also offers standard 2G data coverage in some areas. Ting has dead zones in the western United States and in less populated areas in the east. Voice coverage appears to nationwide, though there are many areas where roaming is possible.
Ting makes it difficult to see data coverage on a national level. The map looks good at first glance, until you realize this is just voice coverage. You must zoom in or search your address to get a more accurate picture of the data coverage available in your area.
Coverage Maps for Ting
- 3G Map: The 3G map shows a lot of coverage on the east coast, with a lot of “no coverage” in the central United States, and a decent amount of 3G coverage in the Western U.S. More dead space exists in Western states. If you travel on a regular basis, then another network may be a better choice.
- LTE Map: The 4G LTE map is similar to, but spottier than the 3G map. You must zoom in to a specific local area to find out more about the available coverage, but it appears to closely match the 3G network. You must have a compatible device in order to use the 4G coverage.
- WiMax Map: There is very little nationwide WiMax 4G coverage available with Ting.
Important Information About Ting Coverage Maps
The Ting coverage maps are designed to help you get a good idea of what you could expect from the coverage based on where you live. However, just because the map indicates that service should be available in your area does not mean it will be. You will not be able to use the 4G, 4g LTE, or WiMax data services unless you have a compatible device. If you do, and coverage is not available, it should default to 3G service.
