Saint Helena Dial-in Numbers – Watch out for excessive costs!

There are some unscrupulous conference call providers out there that will tell you that they provide a ‘free conference call service’, to which, most people believe this means there will be no costs, be it direct from conference call providers, or indirectly, from your telephone service provider. Unfortunately, there’s two key sets of numbers to look out for…

a) “Free” conference call providers. Guess what? They’re anything but free!

b) Ensure, if you are in St. Helena, you are making use of St. Helena based phone numbers.There are “free” services out there that make you call NYC phone numbers; 646-663-6070.

What about attendees from outside St. Helena?

If not all attendees are based in St. Helena, you’ll need to ensure that those participants dial-in to the call with their localised dial-in numbers, be it United Kingdom, China or the United States of America, if you don’t give them access to a localised, country/region specific phone number, they’ll end up paying large fees for dialling internationally.
