New cheap carrier!
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.
