Hack Stalls Voyager Mobile Discount Debut

Company claims malicious network outage will delay plan launch

   

Voyager Mobile’s planned roll-out of a new discount mobile plan on Tuesday was stopped after Voyager’s website was allegedly hacked.

The company was to set to launch its $39-per-month plan, but it says a “malicious network attack” afflicted its main website, PCWorld reports.

Instead of the plan’s launch, this morning Voyager’s site contained a simple note saying it had experienced a network outage and that the launched had been postponed. No new date was set for the plan’s debut.

Running on Sprint‘s (NYSE:S) wireless network, the new plan is expected to feature unlimited calling, text messages and 3G/4G data. The low price had attracted considerable attention.

Under its deal with Sprint, Voyager was to retail smartphones from Motorola (NYSE:MMI) and Samsung that use Google‘s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android operating system.

Voyager provided no further comment on the purported attack, PCWorld said.
