Yet Folks Still Use Webex

Has anyone else heard of Freeconference.com?

“FreeConference.com offers a terrific value to consumers free conference calls with no strings attached. The company deserves credit for coming up with an innovative online business model that actually works… The site makes it easy to learn about FreeConference and to do business with the company.”

That’s not (to my knowledge) promotional text written by the company’s PR reps. It’s what one of the judges in the Webby Business Awards competition wrote when the company won first place for telecommunications in 2003. And this Google Answers checkup on them is solidly positive.

Why isn’t this company everywhere right now?

we use freeconference and webex. webex lets you do WEB conferencing though. as far as i know you can't get that with freeconference. if you can, tell me!

There are lots of free conference call companies. I use freeconferencecalls.com...

FreeConferenceCalls.com, by the way, redirects to FreeConference.com. The mystery deepens. OK, not really. But I'm still geeking out over this; pretty cool.

And the Web conferencing element is a good point, Ali. All right, Webex has my permission to continue.

Good catch. eh. It's a conspiracy I tell ya.

That is interesting though -- I'm pretty sure the calls I have been on say "welcome to free conference calls dot com".

Having done some research into this before, another good one is http://www.mrconference.com/. That _only_ holds 30 people, but will let you own your own room 24/7 and not have to schedule ahead of time like freeconference.com.
