Just thought I would share, I thought it was funny but someone came to the site by typing the search terms “Sunrocket”can not hear“”. Hmm,  is this an indication of Sunrockets service?  Is anyone out there that has had good service from them? First brought up the issue of Sunrocket in the post “Sunrocket VOIP for Phone Service“. At the time of the post it was apparently a hot company which had had an influx of capital. Not quite sure how it is doing now? Nor what kind of service they provide.

Just noticed that it was listed first in a post title VOIP Biggest Losers. Aparently the last two original founders just left.  Hmm does not sound good for Sunrocket.

Sunrocket VOIP for Phone Service

Posted by firstman2006 on September 11, 2006

In the post entitled “VOIP and Calling Cards”  I first wrote about my initial exposure to VOIP as a telephone service.  Then a friend of mine suggested I check out this telephone service that lets you call internationally for a low monthly fee. http://www.sunrocket.com/ provides a service that is very similar to Vonage. According to my friend, I would be able to take it with me and use anywhere, as long as I had a high-speed Internet service I would be able to use it. This would be great to use between the office and home. Currently, we use our cell phones in the office, since there is only one line in the office. I also did a little research last night and checked out several blogs concerning Sunrocket. I had been on a negative sunrocket blog, that told of customers misfortune and poor service when trying to solve a problem. However, the most recent entry was in January of 2006. In more recent blog postings,according to Rich Tehrani, in the post “SunRocket Gets Funding” that Sunrocket had gotten a serious influx of VC. Perhaps with the influx of dinero, they were able to work on their customer support issues. I also suppose like any business, there are going to be people that have a good relationship and people that have a bad relationship. According to Pedro Vera’s Web Log, in August 2006, he had been a satisfied Sunrocket customer for well over 4 months, who had a few minor problems, mainly the cheap phones that he was using, which had nothing to do with the Sunrocket. Another satisfied customer, Mr. Shinney of “Mr. Shinney’s Blog of Goodness” has nothing negative to say, and actually was eager to sign up for his second year of Sunrocket service.

Well, I will have to make the leap of faith and sign up myself. I have already made a tiny leap, and forwarded the Sunrocket url to my boss. I better hurry and sign up so I can give him my affiliate link…another good thing they have an affiliate program so customers can actually make money for telling other people about their experiences with Sunrocket.
