Re: Free or good value/low cost teleconference services in Europe?
- I sent this message a while ago, but don't see it on the list. Sorry,
if it's coming twice...
I'm now experimenting with Intercall, based in London:
My objective is to find something that includes those people who can't
use the Internet to participate in a phone call. So it has to be a
service that some people use only via the telephone.
My experience with Intercall so far is very helpful human service. I
have a support person who phones me up to check I know how to do
everything and there is easy access to a (human) support operator
during the call for all call participants. I haven't had the bill yet,
but I think it's going to be expensive.
I'd like to find something less expensive - like
highspeedconferencing.com (which is free if you ring in from skype) -
but which is reliable for me hosting calls in PT and which has
toll-free or local numbers from Portugal
