Not sure which forum this should be in so just throwing it in here for now...


I'm looking for recommendations for a conference call provider for a regular meeting for a club I'm setting up. Will have members from across NZ, nothing international at this stage, though that could happen in the future. But ideally anyone can dial in with a mobile and get clear comms.


Cheap (ideally free), good quality calls a must.


A quick google shows up but just wondered if anyone had experience with using them or others.


Thanks in advance.

Free to setup, but I believe everyone pays their way on it.  Can't vouch for quality...

You could setup a 2talk phone number as a conference line for $6.90/month or whatever their local number charge is if you just want it to be phone only based.


(Callers can connect via computer and share screens etc if you like)


Otherwise something like might work




If everyone has a smartphone + wifi or data then using an app is going to probably give you much better audio quality than phone

I've used Zoom for multi hour conference calls and works great.
