SunRocket's Gravedigger Speaks
Also, Packet8 in talks for sub takeover
Nearly six days
after the SunRocket saga began, someone involved with the shutdown finally speaks. Sherwood Partners, the company handling the liquidation of SunRocket, aimed this statement at our inbox:
SunRocket, one of the largest VoIP providers has shut down its service. An affiliate of Sherwood Partners, LLC is managing the process as the Assignee for the benefit of creditors.
Sherwood expects to enter into agreements with other service providers to transition the customers of SunRocket to such providers. The customers of SunRocket will be informed of this opportunity to transition to another provider via email as soon as an agreement is reached.
Creditors will receive a notice within the next 30 days in regards to the general assignment and for the filing of claims in the liquidation process of SunRocket.
At 4PM reports emerged
that Packet8 was in negotiation with Sherwood to acquire the remaining customers alongside other operators. As we mentioned this morning
, many SunRocket customers aren't waiting. We're told current device config files need updating Friday, so the deal needs to happen before then, or what's currently passing as service goes dark.
