7. Is there a free conference call service?
Yes, there is such thing as a ‘free’ to use conference call service, but the phone bill for you and your attendees will end up astronomical, versus the utilisation of an ‘inclusive minutes’ conference call plan. Why? When a provider talks about a ‘free’ conference call, they’re talking about their service costs, however, what they will inevitably be doing is making you dial in to a conference call number such as an 084* number, where you and your attendees could be charged anywhere from 15-35p per minute (each), thus, a 60 minute call with 6 attendees would be winging its way to your phone bills at a total between £54 to £126 just for one call! It’s much better to sign up to a conference call provider that offers inclusive minutes plans, thus, you’ll be charged, usually, at the local dial-in rate, which could be free.
