» Sun sets on SunRocket | IP Telephony, VoIP, Broadband | ZDNet.com

"SunRocket, an innovative VoIP service that claimed 200,000 subscribers, announced today that it is closing for good this evening.
As of now, the site’s up but as if that tells us something. Could stay up for months as a frozen moment in time.
Yet meanwhile:
Om notes that this morning, Sonya Jefferson, then Director of Routing and Carrier Services for SunRocket sent out this memo:
Unfortunately this email contains very bad news. We have just been informed that any and all last ditch efforts to keep operations running as well as a potential sale of the company have not gone through and that SunRocket will cease operations at COB today. As such, today is my last day and everyone else you may have worked with at SunRocket. … Regarding outstanding and future invoices: Sherwood Partners out of Palo Alto will be handling the close down of all invoices, current and outstanding."

I too was amazed on hearing about the abrupt shutting down of SunRocket. From then, I went browsing to find the best VoIP provider that can offer seamless transition service from SunRocket. Finally, I noticed the promotional offers of Lingo for SunRocket customers located at http://www.lingo.com/shop/promotions/sunrocket.jsp. I though this could be a better option for ex-SunRocket customers.
If you want to switch to a new phone service, I would suggest you to go with Lingo. They have good plans for SunRocket customers. Moreover, they have a good coverage over US and 22 countries across the world. Above the all, anyone can avail of its annual international calling plan just for $195.
