Ting Mobile Carrier to Launch in 2012
Buy smartphone from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now

I think we can all relate to the love hate relationship with mobile carriers. I know I love my smartphone and the ability to surf the web anywhere, but I hate the bill. I have always thought there was room in the mobile market for a company with lower cost. In fact, a few pre-paid firms out there are arguably a better deal than traditional post-paid service.

A new wireless carrier is set to launch in the middle of 2012 that will be cheaper than the others out there. The network will be called Ting and is from Tucows. The network will be reselling Sprint connectivity. As you can see from the photo the Ting website already has a calculator up to show you how much cheaper your bill could be.

Ting will offer monthly service with minute allotments along with text, email, and data allowances as well. The coolest part is that all of the allowances are separate. That means if you sign up for 100 voice minutes as an example and only use 50, you will be bumped down to the lower priced plan for voice. Ting will have no contract. This sounds like something interesting that pre-paid users might want to consider.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
