Ting isn’t too bad either for pricing but can’t speak to service quality but we have a few people that use them and haven’t heard much complaints.

Walmart has the prepaid no contract Straight Talk plans that can be on VZW, T-Mobile, or AT&T.  Grab a BYOD kit either from a Walmart store or order online.

I keep a mobile hotspot deactivated and ready to add a service plan to for my customers if they have an outage.
