HOLLY SPRINGS, N.C., Oct. 21, 2015 — As other fiber Internet providers pass over smaller metros in the race to bring fiber to big cities, Ting, a division of Tucows Inc. (NASDAQ:TCX) (TSX:TC), steps in to ensure cities and towns of all sizes can benefit.

Ting is announcing its intent to make Holly Springs, NC the next town to get symmetrical gigabit (1,000 Mbps download and upload speed) “crazy fast fiber Internet.” Holly Springs will join Charlottesville, VA and Westminster, MD where Ting Internet is already available. Demand assessment will begin in Holly Springs in the last quarter of 2015. That demand will guide construction, which could then begin as soon as the first half of 2016.

tingIn the meantime, Holly Springs residents can express interest in Ting Internet and sign up for updates at ting.com/hollysprings.

Holly Springs is an organized community that planned ahead to get fiber Internet access for its tech-savvy citizens; a partial fiber network already exists in the town. Also, Holly Springs has promised to make it easier for Ting to get to work by easing some of the red tape around construction and other permits that can otherwise slow things down.

“We’re very happy that Ting chose Holly Springs as the next place to bring crazy fast fiber Internet. In the past 25 years, Holly Springs has grown over 2,600%. Young families with school-aged children are driving that growth. World-class Internet access will help us continue our forward progress and inspire the next generation of great ideas,” said Mayor Dick Sears.

“The need for faster, more reliable Internet access across the US has been recognized by the highest levels of government,” said Tucows CEO Elliot Noss. “The problem of slow, expensive and unreliable Internet access is national but agreements like the one reached with Holly Springs further demonstrate that the solution is local.”

“While Google Fiber and other providers race to get started in big cities, we’re finding that there’s also a lot of interest from, and opportunity in, smaller cities and towns that might otherwise get passed over,” Noss said.

Ting disrupted the mobile industry with its launch in 2012 offering shockingly fair pricing, usable interfaces and no-hold, no-transfer customer support. Ting received the top honor in Consumer Reports annual cell phone service ratings survey for 2014.

“If there’s one industry that needs Ting perhaps even more than mobile, it’s cable and Internet access,” said Noss. “For too long, people and businesses have dealt with middling speeds, contracts and caps. We plan to bring world-class Internet to more towns and cities all over the US.”

TORONTO, Oct. 20, 2015 — Irrepressibly cute cellphone and Internet service provider, Ting, a division of Tucows Inc. (NASDAQ:TCX) (TSX:TC), is once again trading coffee for consideration.

In 2013, the upstart handed out thousands of $5 Starbucks gift cards to anyone who calculated how much they would save by switching to Ting. At that time, people generally had to buy a new phone to join Ting and were calculating whether the monthly savings more than covered the upfront cost.

Now Ting, at over 170,000 subscribers and growing fast, has a new offering. They have added service on a GSM network, which means most phones, including the vast majority on AT&T, can be unlocked and brought to Ting simply by popping in a Ting GSM SIM card.

If people can bring their phone to Ting, then Ting believes they will.

So, for the next three days, ending at midnight on Thursday, October 22, AT&T customers are invited to check their active phones, one per customer, at ting.com/byod_coffee to see if they are Ting compatible. For each phone checked, whether they prove to be compatible, Ting will provide a unique promo code worth $5 at any Starbucks location.

“If you can bring your phone to Ting, the calculation gets very simple. You are going to have a better customer experience and you are likely going to spend less,” explained Michael Goldstein, Ting VP of Sales and Marketing. “But sometime people need a more immediate incentive to take that first step. Until a better incentive comes along, we’re going to stick with coffee.”
