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. ®
Re: Yeah everyone knows drug dealers have no money
Those people who know how to read know the average drug dealer has no money. As been shown in study after study, the average drug dealer lives at home with Mom and the salary only works out to less than minimum wage. Only the guy at the very top of the drug distribution pyramid makes good money.
e.g. Chapter 3: Why Do Drug Dealers Still Live with Their Moms?, Freakonomics by Levitt & Dubner. Steven Levitt is the Alvin H. Baum Professor in Economics at the University of Chicago, where he is also director of The Becker Center on Chicago Price Theory. Dubner is a journalist.
Yeah everyone knows drug dealers have no money
What! living in a city makes you a thief, punk ass cretin
aside from every major business activity what else could
possibly be going on in a city your a racist mall walker
go fuck yourself
anonymously.The reason they failed is obvious they didn't have
a product worth buying.
"Urban-early-adopter" is a euphemism for high-school dropout drug dealers and thieves. Anyone who thought they’d build a business based on the demographics of the lowest economic level was pretty stupid.
