If you do business with Liberians or have family and friends
living in Liberia, you may occasionally need to hold a conference call in order to communicate with the group.
You can do this from any country using our international
conference calling service. While we provide local and toll free international

you can use the app's dial-out feature to dial attendees in Liberia directly. Their phones will ring and they'll
be joined into your group audio call.

Telecommunications in Liberia
According to CIA World Factbook, Liberia had just 10,000 fixed line phone subscribers
in 2014. In contrast, it had more than 3.2 million mobile phone subscribers. That's 79 mobile phones for every
100 people. The fixed line sector is stagnant and very limited. Much of the nation's telecommunications infrastructure
was damaged during the civil war.
Liberia Telecommunications Corporation holds a monopoly on all fixed line services in Liberia. What phone services
the country does have are clustered in Monrovia, the capital of Liberia.
Four mobile cellular service providers, Lonestar Cell, LiberCell, CellCom, and Comium, provide mobile services
to some other towns and rural areas. Competition for mobile cellular services in Liberia is robust, resulting in
some of the lowest calling prices in all of Africa according to Budde.com.au.
As of 2014, Internet usage rates remained low in Liberia for a total of just 4.3 percent of its population. Mobile
operators offer Internet services using various wireless technologies. However, with limited bandwidth, costs remain
high and speeds slow.
Making International Calls to or from Liberia
To make an international phone call from Liberia, you must first dial "00"
which is the exit code. Next, dial the country code for the country you are calling followed by the phone number.
To call Liberia from another country, dial your country's exit code followed by Liberia's international country
code of 231. Next, dial the phone number.
About the Republic of Liberia
Liberia, the "land of the free," is a country
located on the West Coast of Africa.
The Republic of Liberia is bordered by Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Guinea, and the
Atlantic Ocean. Liberia was formed as a settlement for freed slaves from the United States in 1822. It became a
republic in 1847.
The country has had its share of political unrest. For example, Samuel Doe led a military coup in 1980 which put
him in a position of power for nearly a decade. His authoritarian rule came to end after Charles Taylor and his
rebellion led to a civil war where Doe was killed and the nation suffered. The war ended in 2003 and a transitional
government took over. Today, the country is led by President Ellen Sirleaf and a long-standing U.N. peacekeeping
mission is set to wind down its role starting in mid-2016.
July 2015 estimates put Liberia's population at 4,195,666. Years of civil war and government mismanagement have
adversely affected Liberia's infrastructure and economy. As a result, despite its wealth of natural resources,
Liberia remains a low income country that depends on foreign assistance.
Liberia is one of the world's poorest countries. Some of its exports include palm oil, iron ore, and rubber. The
world's largest rubber plantation is in Liberia. Though rich in timber and diamonds, these industries have suffered.
U.N. sanctions were planned on timber from 2003 to 2006 as timber exports were believed to have been funding rebels
in neighboring Sierra Leone. The U.N. also banned Liberian diamond exports from 2001 to 2007 due to the country's
role in the Sierra Leone blood diamond trade in the late 1990s.
The economy began looking up from 2010 to 2013 thanks to continued peace, progress in rebuilding, and favorable
commodity prices. The Ebola virus, however, soon arrived. Not only did this adversely affect the economy, the Liberian
government had to spend its limited funds on fighting the virus.
Corruption is an ongoing problem in Liberia. The country scored 37 out of 100 in the 2015 Corruption Perceptions
Index. International Conference Call Features
