Need a UK teleconference service? Avoid this common mistake…

When you’re looking for a teleconference service, there’s a lot to think about. And many of us certainly are on the look-out for the perfect teleconference provider. Conference calls are such valuable business tools, but they have all kinds of other uses beyond business, too. Anybody who has ever wanted to speak to more than one person at a time would find group phone calls beneficial. And in the midst of the coronavirus lockdown, conference calls are earning the recognition as the wonderful tools they are. From fighting loneliness during self-quarantine, to continuing education through isolation, as well as helping people to work from home and religious services to run, conference calls are truly proving themselves. That’s why choosing the right teleconference service might be more important than ever. But too many people fall into the trap of incurring unexpected or unnecessary costs by choosing the wrong teleconference service.

How much are conference call costs from a mobile?

Lots of people are curious about how much a conference call costs from a mobile. Here, we’ll look into conference call charges in general, as well as thinking about the cost of a conference call with Vodafone, EE, o2, Virgin Mobile and Three. In short, with the right provider conference calls shouldn’t cost money. They should be included in callers’ bundled minutes, essentially erasing conference call charges.

It’s no wonder so many people want to learn about conference call charges. It’s totally logical, for two key reasons. Firstly, there’s how useful conference calls are. Being so simple and so versatile, conference calls form a big part of many people’s lives. As such, knowing conference call costs from a mobile is important. After all, part of what makes teleconferencing so great is the fact that it is mobile. You should be able to do it from anywhere! And another wonderful aspect is how accessible conference calls are – at least the way WHYPAY? offers them. Most people don’t have fancy conference call phones. Nowadays, many don’t even have landlines. Being able to conference call from a mobile is a brilliant thing. But knowing just how much it will cost you matters too.

Showing our working: How we calculate how much you save on conference calls

Here at WHYPAY? we calculate how much money our users are saving on conference calls by comparing the cost of calling our 03 number (usually FREE) with the costs of calling 6 other popular conference providers in the UK.

Many alternative UK services provide a dial-in number that has a high per minute cost. WHYPAY? on the other hand provides a UK 03 dial-in number. The charges associated with an 03 number are the same as a bog-standard UK 01 or 02 number. This means calls are included in any free calls/minutes on ALL UK mobile and landline networks. Whether it’s unlimited daytime and evening minutes on a BT landline contract, or 4000 minutes per month on an EE mobile plan – calls to WHYPAY? must be included in your allowance.

The free conference call business model: How can it be free?

A lot of people have (very valid) questions about the free conference call business model. It’s not surprising people are curious. Conference calling is part and parcel of daily life – and not just in business. That such a powerful and ubiquitous tool should be free can seem quite remarkable for two reasons.

Firstly, we tend to associate value with cost (pretty logically). How can something that’s simple enough to be free be so useful? Actually, it’s in part the fact that they can be free that makes them so valuable for many demographics. For example, free conference calling allows charities to maintain internal and external communications without eating into their budgets. That means they can do even more good, and foster collaborations with other organisations. At the same time, they aren’t having to use funds that could be put to researching how best to achieve their philanthropic goals, or hiring talented people who can help them do so. Likewise, free NHS conference calls mean telecommunications aren’t using up money that should be put to treating people.

How to make a conference call from landline phones

If you’re wondering how to make conference call from landline phones, you’re in luck. With the right service provider not only is it really easy, but it won’t cost you! To conference call on landlines, look for a conference call provider offering dial-in numbers. Ideally, these will be 03 numbers like WHYPAY?‘s, which are included in callers’ bundled minutes.

It’s true that these days, we seem to be using our mobiles for almost everything. There’s even been debate in recent years about whether we should replace desk phones in offices with mobile devices. But most of us are still regularly using landlines, whether personally, professionally or both. And in both capacities, we might want to hold conference calls.
