Sun Rocket Goes On Sale

All they are missing is the guy who used to do the tv ads for a chain of electronics stores in New York and a few other markets called Crazy Eddies. You see, Sun Rocket, the VoIP player started by some ex WorldCon/MCI types wasn't getting enough subscribers to their offer, so now they are starting what could become a VoIP price war.

The news leaked out earlier in the week, but being on the road, I didn't pick up on it. To their PR person's credit she called, but I was doing the Pulver Party day travel and missed her call and given the short week I failed to call her back. I'm sorry, that's so unlike me. Anyway, I'm not impressed when a company launches saying what they are doing out of the box is giving great value, then they have to lower their pricing so quickly.

My question is, if somone signed up with the original plan pricing will they get dropped to the new deal?

Let me give you another thing to to ponder. My credit card has built in 90 day price protection. If the price lowers by 10 dollars a month after I bill it to my card do I get to ask for the 10 dollars credit for the previous 90 day period and then for each 90 days thereafter....
