SunRocket Tells Customers KTHXBAI, Thanks For The Money

SunRocket customers received a Dear John letter last night informing them SunRocket was kaputsville.

Note to other companies thinking of folding: send that letter before the New York Times article comes out. It’s called, “staying ahead of the curve.”

Two fun facts about the letter, reprinted inside: 1)There’s no mention of any intent to refund anyone’s money. 2) It uses
the word service 16 times.

Reader and former SunRocket customer Patrick writes, “The last line kind of makes me feel like I’ve been serviced in the same sense that farmers borrow bulls to service cows. I’m sure it was “their pleasure”.
