Ting Promises "Mobile That Makes Sense"
TORONTO, Feb. 2, 2012 /CNW/ - Tucows Inc. (NYSE AMEX: TCX, TSX:TC), a
global Internet services company dedicated to making simple useful
services that unlock the power of the Internet, today announced the
launch of Ting, a mobile phone service dedicated to bringing clarity
and control to US mobile phone customers.
Small businesses and families in the US are overpaying for mobile
service and underserved by their mobile service providers. With Ting,
Tucows seeks to offer a fresh alternative by emphasizing clarity,
usability, a sincere commitment to customer support and significant
"What people are forced to put up with from mobile service providers
just doesn't make sense. It's too complicated, too opaque, too
adversarial, too expensive and frankly too inhuman," said Elliot Noss,
CEO of Tucows. "We're changing that. Ting is a mobile service that
Ting has a very different approach to pricing than the major providers.
Minutes, messages and megabytes are each billed separately. If
customers use less of any than they anticipated, they are credited at
the end of the month. If they use more, they are simply billed the
appropriate additional amount, without onerous penalties or premiums.
Businesses and families can pool an unlimited number of phones and data
devices on one Ting account, offering even greater savings over other
providers' more limited sharing options.
People considering Ting are encouraged to instantly calculate how much
they'll save with Ting by entering past bills from their current
provider into the Ting Phone Savings Calculator on the Ting site (http://ting.com/calculator).
The site offers customers clear, visual snapshots of their usage
throughout the month and a great deal of administrative control over
usage and device features.
The customer support team boasts a "no hold policy" from 8am-8pm ET
Monday through Friday and "geek support" from smart, passionate people
that are empowered to solve problems.
