Amp’d Customers So Not

According to Mashable, Los Angeles-based mobile service provider Amp’d will shut down at 12:01am Tuesday. Existing customers will be able to port their phone numbers to a new service, but Amp’d won’t help them do this, and their will be no customer service after Monday. Amp’d assets will be sold in an auction.
The company had 200,000 customers in April, but dropped half of them when they failed to pay their bills.
Thus far, no comment from Amp’d original, Lil’ Bush.
