Is there a toll-free call option for phone conferencing?

This article identifies the options to avoid toll charges for current conferencing solutions.

Unfortunately, ACCC no longer offers a toll-free phone conferencing option. However, there are workarounds available to avoid incurring toll charges when using the WebEx tool.



Remote participants are able to join the WebEx meeting via the web, and are then able to use the "Call Me" feature for the WebEx audio connection.


In this case, the participant would enter a valid phone number where they can be reached,


and the WebEx system will call them after entering a valid phone number.



Alternatively, if the remote participant has access to a smartphone, they can install the WebEx app and join the meeting through the app, which will offer the same "Call Me" feature.
