Dixon's Freetalk VoIP service has been axed just a year after launch. Vonage, Freetalk's rival will inherit all of Freetalk's members and will provide the new service. Simon Turner, speaking at Freetalk's launch last September said, 'This is the most significant development in the telephone market since the launch of the mobile phone and will transform the way we use phones. The days of old style fixed-line phone calls are numbered.' And he's right! But why then are Dixons ditching it?
