Conference Call Macau
Like Hong Kong, Macau is a "Special Administrative Region" of the People's Republic of China.
China's Special Administrative Regions are autonomous territories that fall within China's sovereignty but are
not actually part of Mainland China.
Macau is a former Portuguese colony and was administered by Portugal until December 20, 1999 when Portugal transferred
sovereignty back to China.
According to the World Bank, Macau is one of the world's richest cities with a GDP per capita by purchasing
power parity being the highest in the world (as of 2013). Population estimates vary for Macau. As of the end of
2013, Macau's statistical agency put the population at about 607,500.
Telecommunications in Macau
As of 2012, the World Fact Book estimates that Macau had 162,500 main lines in use and another
1.6 million mobile cellular phones. Macau is served by a relatively modern communication system. Throughout both
Portuguese and Chinese administration, Macau has maintained its own telephone numbering plan. This means that calls
to mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan are considered international calls.
Macau's country code is +853 and its international call prefix is 00. Macau does not have a trunk prefix nor does
it use area codes. Numbering patterns are as follows:
- Residential, business, and government numbers
- 28xx xxxx
- Cellular numbers - 6xxx xxxx
- Macau is a landing point for a submarine cable
network (SEA-ME-WE-3) that connects to Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. In addition, Macau is home to one satellite
earth station and a HF radiotelephone communication facility.
Macau was one of the first regions in the world to phase out GSM mobile networks with most GSM networks in the
region decommissioned in mid-2012.
As far as Internet usage in Macau goes, its Internet user penetration rate is 65 percent — one of the highest in
the world. However, its user penetration rate for fixed broadband service stands at just 27 percent. This could
indicate a lack of competition in this segment.
Liberalization of the telecommunications market is underway in Macau. In 2001, the monopoly over cellular services
was terminated, resulting in a rush to mobile cellular phones and a decline in fixed line phones. Macau's mobile-cellular
teledensity is more than 200 per 100 people. The fixed line market was opened to competition in 2013. The cable
TV market was liberalized in 2014.
One of the major telecommunications service providers in Macau is CTM (Companhia de Telecomunicações
de Macau S.A.R.L). CTM was formed in 1981 through a joint agreement between the Macau government and Cable and
Wireless, a UK telecommunications operator. Today, CTM offers fixed line services, mobile services, Internet services,
prepaid services, and more to consumers and businesses in Macau.
Macau conference calls how it works
Communicating with Friends, Family, and Colleagues
If you have contacts in Macau, you have many communications
options including: traditional long distance phone calls, Skype calls, email, instant messaging, Web chats, and
group audio conference calls.
While you're likely familiar with most of these options, you may not be aware of the intricacies involved with
international conference calls. For example, a regular in-country conference call involves issuing a single phone
number for everyone to dial. This number can either be a local number for the call's host or a toll free number
so that participants won't incur any toll charges.
This works well domestically but becomes problematic internationally. If you give your colleagues in Macau a toll
free number for a USA international conference call, that toll free number, which is specific to the United States,
will not work in Macau!
Macau international conference calling
The answer is to use an international conference call service that offers toll free international access numbers.
This way, you can give your contacts in Macau a toll free number that's local to Macau. They'll simply dial as
they normally would while the international conference call service provider routes the call from Macau to your
conference — wherever in the world it may be hosted.
Communicating with Others Around the World from Macau
You can also use an international conference calling plan from within Macau to communicate with your colleagues
around the world. As the moderator of the call, you can issue international access numbers specific to your participants'
countries. Over a hundred countries are supported with toll free and local international access numbers. For instance,
your colleagues in Canada will dial a Canadian number while those in France will dial a French access number. Those
located within Macau will simply dial either a local number for Macau.
Either way, they all connect to your international conference call with minimal fuss. Should anyone need operator
assistance, it is readily available.
As the moderator of an international conference call, whether located inside or out of Macau, you can choose how
you want callers to connect. Your choices are local numbers, toll free numbers, or moderator dial-out. Rates vary
based on the countries involved and the choices you make. Some countries have different rates for mobile phones
