VelocityTel has it gone bankrupt? Or hacked to death?

I received this message a week ago and have had no service or can not contact the company in over a week!

Anyone else having any problems?
email I received:

Attention Valued Customer,

I tried replying to both emails addresses and am getting them returned undeliverable.


The last I can identify that our phone service with VelocityTel worked was 9/21. I haven't been able to launch any of their URLs (VelocityTel, Telemedium and/or Velocity West) or reach anyone by telephone. We used their service for our business and have confirmation of lost new business due to no phone access. I am in the process of porting our phone number to a new carrier in as expedited a manner a possible.

we are in the same boat, were told by new provider 4-6 weeks to port number


reply to Kulardenu
We have been going thru the same issue. A week ago, signed up with PhonePower via their website. Today the number porting is complete.....back in business. It was a very smooth transition. So far so good. Good bye VelocityTel

What gets me is I just paid my bill a few days before the outage. I even tried to contact a partnering company from 2005 if they knew anything and never got a response. Seems very odd they claim to be hacked and yet being a tel-co there is no news story or any information on this whatsoever. Where does one set a complaint too. Texas Atty General or the one in my state (Michigan)?

I have absolutely zero communication with them now via phone or email. Not even any news about it on the Net either... If anyone knows how to contact them please let me know!

Anyone have a better Telco solution?


reply to Kulardenu
We used to be a Telemedium/Velocitytel customer and have sinced moved over to Cytracom. They were able to port all of our numbers over quickly.
