8×8 Inc., provider of the Packet 8 VoIP service, is offering special rates to SunRocket Inc. subscribers in a deal negotiated by 8×8 and the firm managing SunRockets closure.
8×8 on Wednesday did not identify that firm.
8×8 said it will waive all typical start-up costs for residential plans and offer one free month of service.
SunRockets July 16 shutdown was sudden; the company has yet to release any official word about why it closed its doors. Its customers were left stranded until several providers including Nuvio Corp., Vonage Holdings Corp. came to their rescue.
“While we are very sorry to hear about SunRocket’s financial issues, we want their former customers to know that 8×8 is very committed to providing the best possible communication services, features, prices and customer service to our new customers from SunRocket, said Bryan Martin, 8×8 chairman and CEO, in a news release.
