Ting slashes data prices

TORONTO, Feb. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - On the two year anniversary of its launch, shockingly likeable mobile phone service Ting, a division of Tucows Inc. (NASDAQ: TCX; TSX: TC), surprised its customers with a big drop in data pricing.

The new rates are on display at ting.com/rates and the changes are detailed at ting.com/blog.

Current customers do not need to move to a new plan. New customers do not need to come from any particular provider. There is no requirement to buy a new device or make any particular commitment. Ting is simply dropping their usage-based pricing for current and incoming customers alike.

The deepest cut was made to the unit pricing on the heaviest data usage. That went from 2.25¢ per megabyte to just 1.5¢, a significant benefit to small businesses, families and data-hungry individuals.

"After two years of fantastic growth, we are in a position to provide even greater cost savings to our customers," explained Elliot Noss, CEO of Tucows. "We are thrilled to be able to do so. People love saving money and we love making customers happy."

Ting has now surpassed 50,000 accounts and 80,000 devices on the service.

Ting customers will begin enjoying the new rates in their next billing period that begins after today. Others are strongly encouraged to calculate their potential savings at ting.com/calculator.
