Griffin jettisons VoIP services unit

Business internet services provider Griffin has sold off the VoIP assets that it acquired when it bought Fused Group last October.

Griffin rescued DSL and leased line specialist Fused from administration in a pre-pack deal, but its hosted VoIP business was very much a sideline and according to managing director Andrew Dickinson, it was not of any interest to Griffin.

"This was not a line of business for Griffin prior to the acquisition and actual VoIP services are not on our roadmap at this time," he said.

The unit's new owner, Worldwide IP Services, which trades as Microtalk in the UK, specialises in SME networks and conducts some business through comms resellers. It plans plans to begin migrating Fused's customers onto its own network in the near future.

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
