Ting to Launch Shared Data Plan Four Months Ago
|Published:||Jun 19, 2012|
Tucows, a global provider of domain names and other Internet services, recently announced that its mobile phone service Ting would unveil a shared data plan on February 2, 2012, four months prior to this announcement. "Putting multiple devices on one plan was pretty straightforward," explained Ken Schafer, EVP Products, "the main challenge was figuring out the time travel part."
Starting February 2, 2012, Ting customers will be able to share data, as well as voice and texts, across unlimited devices on one account. Each active device will cost just $6 a month. The value gets better as the total usage increases, amounting to huge potential savings for businesses and families. There are never any overage penalties or premiums and there are no limits or fees on features like tethering. “Again, we think this just makes sense for mobile phone users,” explained Tucows CEO Elliot Noss. “People are wasting a ton of time and money on multiple accounts.” “I think we showed tremendous initiative and hustle by launching this in the past. It appears our competitors will be following suit in the near future.”
While the Ting announcement actually comes a day after the big shared data plan announcement from Verizon (NYSE:VZ), the Ting plan itself will precede Verizon’s June 28 launch by nearly five months.

Noss also hinted at plans to launch a shareware site.
Ting is a new mobile phone service that brings clarity, usability and significant monthly savings to US small businesses and families.
