Verizon Communications has contacted its existing VoiceWing VoIP service customers to say it is withdrawing the offering from 31 March 2009. The company does not report how many VoiceWing subscribers it has on its books. Deltathree, the VoIP company that ran the back-end services for VoiceWing, has been a casualty of the economic downturn, and has been delisted from the Nasdaq Stock Market. Verizon decided VoiceWing did not fit with its portfolio of products and services, having recently launched ‘The Hub’ a multifunction touch-screen home phone that connects to a broadband line. It is also planning to introduce a new VoIP package utilising its own fibre-optic connections.
