Amp'd sez network goes dark at midnight, suggests Prexar

Chris Ziegler

The latest word from Amp'd -- also known as the Defunct MVNO That Wouldn't Die -- is that its network will finally be shut down (for real this time) tonight at midnight. Interestingly, the latest text message sent out to customers still using its phones suggests that they port to Prexar Mobile, a darkhorse that has just acquired "strategic wireless assets" from Amp'd, presumably in a bid to make the port process as seamless as possible. Customers will be able to continue to use their Amp'd phones (though without all the Amp'd content, we'd guess) and will have to sign up for a Prexar plan, at which point they'll be granted 100 free text messages. Whoopee.
