- Is the Unlimited Conference
Call plan suitable for your requirements?
Long distance charges may or may not
apply to some or all of your participants.
Why get a plan if the access number is a long distance
call for the participants?
The real question is whether or not your participants will be charged extra, on their end, for calling into your
And the answer to that question is dependent on what type of long distance service they have on their home, office
or cell phone plan. For example, most cell phone plans include nationwide long distance.
Long distance calling is included with many cable and local phone company residential and business plans. Some
customers have unlimited long distance plans.
In other words, calling an access number in another state can be free even without toll-free access.
Reasons to use the unlimited conference call plan
Your conference call participants may be using a flat rate long distance service, cable
long distance service or VOIP provider or a cell phone that has built-in long distance calling. e.g. no extra charges
to make a long distance call.
Any of these 'long distance included' services mean that the location of the access number is unimportant and you
can benefit from the cost savings of using this Unlimited plan.
Said another way, if your attendee has 'nationwide long distance' included with their phone service, the geography
or area code of the access number becomes irrelevant even if the access number is in New York, Iowa, Nebraska,
South Dakota or New Mexico or wherever in the USA it happens to be located.
Users of this plan have decided that it's not necessary or appropriate to pay for the
participants 'toll free' access to their conference calls.
Customers that sign up for this Unlimited plan enjoy the economics of being able
to host multiple, unlimited number of monthly conference calls and pay only one flat monthly fee.
Customers simply want to lock-in a predefined monthly conference calling cost. So no
matter how many conference calls they host during the month, they pay only the monthly plan fee that fits their
You may already reimburse your employees or associates for monthly long distance charges.
Why pay a premium to add the cost of 'toll free access' to regular intra-company conference calls or calls where
offering a 'toll free' number to the participants may not be necessary.
- AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile favorite number
These plans give users free calling to 5 (or more depending on the plan) numbers of their choosing.
T-Mobile has long advertised its MyFaves plan, Verizon has it's Friends and Family plan and AT&T also has a
plan that permits a wireless subscriber to call up to five favorite numbers with no fees.
Many of our customers mention that they use their cell phones to conference with their associates and simply set
up their assigned conference call bridge access phone number as one of their favorites. Therefore no airtimes fees
when used in this fashion.
- Unlimited Long Distance
Calling Plan Users
- Most local phone companies offer monthly calling
plans that provide included voice calls throughout the U.S.
If a participant has an 'unlimited long distance' plan on their home or office phone line and dials the assigned
access number. It would be equivalent to dialing a toll free number, there would be no extra long distance costs
for the participant.
- Accessing the Flat
Rate Unlimited Plan from Canada
- Because of widespread availability of unlimited
long distance plans for Canadians which include calling to the lower 48 U.S., many of our Canadian customers are
using this unlimited conferencing plan. This permits our Canadian users to access our unlimited flat rate conference
call plan without incurring any extra long distance fees from Canada.
- Using Skype to access
- We have some customers that dial-in to our conferencing
bridge using Skype. This is reported to work well in cases where the participant may be in another country.
