How to save money on mobile service

By Andrew Moore-Crispin

Last week, we posted a poll on the Ting Facebook page asking Ting switchers how much they’re saving on mobile service since switching to Ting. Savings are relative to respondents’ previous mobile carrier bills.

While we’re not going to claim this poll as scientific (accurate to +/- 5%, 19 times out of 20) the results were nonetheless illuminating.

The poll was broken down into eight options:

  • $0 or less than $0
  • $0 – $10
  • $10 – $20
  • $20 – $30
  • $30 – $40
  • $40 – $50
  • $50+
  • Keep your nose out of my personal affairs!

We’re aware of the fact that “mobile that makes sense” means big savings as people start paying for what they use without buying in to unlimited or worrying about overage penalties. After all, it’s not just a pithy slogan. That said, the results of this poll surprised even us a bit with the vast majority, 20 of the 35 respondents, saying they’re saving more than $50 each month with Ting vs their previous mobile carrier.

The results of the Facebook poll:

  • $0 or less than $0: 0
  • $0 – $10: 2
  • $10 – $20: 1
  • $20 – $30: 2
  • $30 – $40: 5
  • $40 – $50: 5
  • $50+: 20
  • Keep your nose out of my personal affairs!: 0

So, in answer to the headline promise: How to save money on mobile service? The answer: for most of us, it’s as simple as paying for what we use.
