Amp'd shuts up shop

Last one to leave please turn down the volume

Amp'd, the US mobile virtual network operator, is shutting up shop tomorrow having failed to find a buyer to take on its urban-early-adopter demographic.

Assuming there's no last-minute buyout, customers will be cut off tomorrow, after which there will be no customer services or, indeed, network.

However, the company's FAQ makes it clear that customers with outstanding bills will still be required to pay them.

Those with outstanding credit are less well served, though they can make a claim against the company if they wish.

Handsets and numbers can be moved to another network, though Amp'd handsets will only operate on other CDMA networks.

The good news is that there won't be an early termination penalty for those part-way through their contracts. ®
