, a well-known distributor of VoIP equipment bites the dust. I was aware they were in trouble for several weeks actually. I had several Atacomm customers/resellers ask me if I knew what was up with Atacomm since they weren't receiving Atacomm equipment that they paid for. I was hesitant to post gossip about Atacomm's pending doom and potentially put the final nail in their coffin. I may be a journalist, but I still have to go to sleep at night and wondering if I put dozens of people out of work based on rumor just isn't worth it.
Anyway, I guess this is great new for VoIPSupply.com
, one of their main competitors.
This from their website:
Dear Atacomm Customers,
