Best Buy Kills Connect


11,000 customers are cut off.

MINYANVILLE ORIGINAL As if having the CEO walk out on you wasn't bad enough, Best Buy (BBY) is hanging up its coast-to-coast mobile broadband service, Connect, the company said Thursday. Best Buy confirmed to All Things D that it would "suspend operations" on June 1.

Connect had signed up approximately 11,000 subscribers for its branded service, which boasted -- among other features -- "real human support." The service accessed Sprint's Nationwide 3G Network and let customers connect up to five devices with up to four hours of usage time.

According to All Things D, existing customers will be given various options to either transfer their service to another provider or receive a gift card.

What with also closing 42 stores and all, it kind of looks like it might be putting itself up for sale.
