8×8 To Snatch More Subscribers In VOIP Bailout

Santa Clara, Calif. — Another VoIP company is going out of business and will recommend 8×8 exclusively to its abandoned subscribers.

An 8×8 spokesperson would not reveal the name of the VoIP firm exiting the market, citing contractual obligations. The company did say in statement announcing the deal that the VoIP firm in question had roughly 12,000 subscribers.

As the undisclosed provider winds down its business over the next three months, 8×8’s Packet8 residential VoIP service will be offered up as an alternative to its stranded subscribers. 8×8 will offer these customers a specially priced calling plan, a free month of service and a free Uniden 165P 5.8GHz VoIP phone.

8×8 forged a similar, though not exclusive, deal with SunRocket’s liquidators two months ago. That deal netted 8×8 over 20,000 former SunRocket users, the spokesperson said.
