Most conferencing systems can accommodate hundreds of participants in one conference call. The host is able to place all guests on mute to eliminate background noise from large numbers of participants.
The price of your conference will depend on how many participants there are and where they are dialling in from.
Participants using a toll-free dial-in number on a landline will not be charged. The use of a mobile phone may incur charges from the mobile phone carrier. If participants use a local dial-in number from outside the local calling area in Australia or internationally, they will incur long distance charges on their phone bill.
