We recently switched to Ting from AT&T and are happy about the huge difference in price. However, cell service including voice, text and data during hurricane Irma and several days after the storm was anything from horrible to non-existent when we needed it the most. Other carriers ( especially AT&T) had good coverage throughout the storm. Also, several weeks before the storm we took a trip from South Florida to Kissimmee and had multiple areas where we had no voice, text or data service along the FL turnpike.
Having the nice price is great but if the reliability isn't there when you need it the most, what good is a cell phone? We really wanted to like Ting because of the price but are now considering switching back to AT&T.
