TORONTO, Aug. 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Ting customers experience whatever the opposite of sticker shock is.
For people considering a switch to Ting, the proposition just got better.
Ting has lowered its data prices. Once customers exceed the 1 GB level, every gigabyte of mobile data, pooled and shared across all phones on an account, is just $10.
For new customers, the pricing is effective upon signing up for Ting. For existing customers, the price takes effect with their next full billing cycle.
“At just $10 a gig beyond the first, Ting’s pay-for-what-you-use approach is the best choice for most American cell phone users,” said Michael Goldstein, VP of Sales and Marketing for Ting (and who is always available for interviews, just saying). “Because minutes, messages and data are pooled and shared across all phones on an account, Ting’s pricing is unrivalled for families, businesses or any other account with more than one phone.”
"Ting has always been about saving people money while, at the same time, offering a smarter, friendlier and ultimately happier mobile experience,” said Elliot Noss, CEO of Tucows. “This new data pricing means people can save even more on their mobile bills while needing to think about their data use less.”
New Ting data pricing details
Ting data pricing has been cut at every level beyond the $3 / 100 MB Small level.

Offering better data pricing has been a top priority for Ting. "We've been lobbying our carrier partners for a while to get better wholesale data rates,” said Goldstein. “We were successful and we are immediately passing these savings on to our customers."
