What Is Ting

What is Ting?

Ting might refer to US cell phone service (Ting), the hip-hop meme (The ting goes) or the soft drink (Ting).

1) the cell phone service
Ting is a no-contract carrier that offers pay for what you use rates as opposed to requiring customers to select a plan. See What is Ting Mobile for more detail.
2) the meme
Here’s what we know: the ting goes “skrrah, pap, pap, kat-kat-kat, skibi-ki-pap-pap, and a pu-pu-pudrrr boom!”
3) the soft drink
From the maker: “It’s a Paloma. A Montingo (sic) Bay. A tingle in the Dark. It’s whatever you need it to be. It’s a lightly sparkling citrus cocktail chameleon.”

So that answers that.
