Hi There!

I have a client who is looking for a cost effective but good quality external conferencing setup so they can link 15 store managers together for 2 hours once a week (Just audio)

Their teleco provider wanted to charge a huge amount ($60 for 15 minutes). 

I found 
www.allconferencecalls.co.nz
 and a few others, but I was curious if anyone here had any experience using services such as this or could recommend something?

Zeon: Put in Asterisk on VPS with 2talk trunks?


+1 for that!
Grab some cheap IP phones (cisco phones are less than $100) and you are away laughing.

Perhaps I wasn't clear. They don't want to do this themselves, they are looking for a provider that can do it for them, like a hosted arrangement where each location has a dial in number.

Why would it be ITPro if I want to use Telephone lines for Telecomferencing? (So I know where to put it next time)

Why not just get an account with a web-conferencing service like http://www.meetingburner.com/ or http://www.gotomeeting.com/ and then use that rather than sign up for an expensive Telecomferencing service? Many of them even have a bundled conference line that you can call into - all for about $20/month.
