Broadband & Business

UK broadband provider Griffin Internet has offloaded its Voice-over Internet Protocol (VoIP) arm to focus on its core business, it has been announced.

The internet service provider (ISP) gained the service when it completed the acquisition of the Fused Group in October 2010, reports ISPreview.co.uk

And while the ISP could have chosen to expand into the area of broadband-based telephony, it has decided to sell up to Worldwide IP-Services, which trades as MicroTalk.

Griffin Internet's Managing Director Andrew Dickinson commented: "This was not a line of business for Griffin prior to the acquisition and whilst we operate the best voice-ready broadband aggregation network in the UK, the actual VoIP services are not on our roadmap at this time."

He explained that the firm had chosen to sell to Microtalk due to the fact it operates its own infrastructure.

As such, Mr Dickinson said the firm will be able to migrate customers away from the ex-Fused servers and onto their own network as soon as possible.

Back in November, the ISP was ranked as the 76th fastest growing technology company in the UK by the Sunday Times Tech Track.

This was the fifth time in six years that the broadband provider had made the top 100.
