MobileMonday Toronto Hosts Ting

Canadian Company Aims to Revolutionize the American Mobile Market

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 5, 2011) -

Attention: Business and Technology Editors

On Monday December 5th, MobileMonday Toronto, Canada's leading mobile industry networking group, hosts Ting, a Canadian company that recently launched a mobile phone service in the United States.

Ting, owned and operated by Tucows Inc., aims to revolutionize mobile phone service with a mission to bring clarity and control to mobile services and help consumers save money. Taken from conception to launch in less than a year, TING aims to challenge the top three American telecom providers who collectively manage a quarter of a billion subscribers. In the United States, consumers have become investigators in trying to decipher charges on their monthly phone bills. Frustration levels are high and consumers have become desperate for alternatives.

"We are delighted to have Ting present at MobileMonday Toronto", said Alexander Bosika and Jim Brown. December has become a successful carrier anchor event to close the year with topical discussions on new products and services from innovative telecom providers. We expect Ting to present a compelling case for simple, clear phone services that consumers expect today."

Ken Schafer, EVP Products at Tucows noted that, "MobileMonday Toronto has become a fantastic mobile industry platform where professionals network and discuss the latest in mobile innovation, trends and best practices. I'm thrilled to be able to share, for the first time, what we've been working on at Ting with the Mobile Monday audience."

The December 5th meeting will take place at the MaRS facility, located at 101 College Street (south east corner of College and University).
