FreeConferenceCall.com International Expands Beyond Twenty-Five Country Threshold

In a Span of Eighteen Months, FreeConferenceCall.com Launches Service in Twenty-Six Countries Throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas

LONG BEACH, Calif. – In January 2011, FreeConferenceCall.com announced it would begin offering its conferencing and screen sharing services outside of the United States, and today, the company’s international network has grown to twenty-six countries in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas.  Businesses and consumers all over the world are saving millions of dollars by using FreeConferenceCall.com International, which gives users the opportunity to make domestic and international conference calls for the cost of a regular domestic phone call - without additional fees - and the ability to share files and other content online with interconnected free screen sharing. 

FreeConferenceCall.com has revolutionized conference calling with a high-quality, reservationless conferencing service that is used by over 20 million callers around the world each month.

“In today’s global economy, businesses and consumers have to be able to communicate efficiently and affordably with colleagues all over the world,” said David Erickson, Founder and CEO of FreeConferenceCall.com.  “Our technology allows them to do that without having to waste time and money on travel.  We’ve grown our international network very quickly and will continue to expand so that our customers have a high-quality, dependable and cost-efficient platform to conduct meetings from their offices with anyone around the world.” 

FreeConferenceCall.com, the largest privately owned conferencing provider in the U.S., strategically built its network country by country, as each nation has different telecommunications regulations.  In most of the countries, there had been very little to no access to conference calling and very little infrastructure.  In a very short amount of time, the company visited each country and analyzed the market and regulatory environment; focused on the quality of the country’s voice and internet capacity to handle FreeConferenceCall.com’s proprietary high definition conference bridges; installed the technology; interacted with incumbent providers; and launched marketing efforts in the country’s language.

Erickson added, “What we’ve accomplished in such a short amount of time is significant.  We take great pride in providing our customers with the highest quality service, and we were able to overcome numerous obstacles around the world to ensure that customers get the quality they’ve learned to count on from us.  And the results speak for themselves, as the usage in these new countries continues to grow every month.”

The FreeConfereneCall.com network is entirely digital and high definition, handling traditional phone traffic, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) traffic, and the online meeting traffic of screen sharing simultaneously.  The network is monitored 24/7 and includes live customer service, while providing free innovative features including:

  • Conference calling for the price of a regular domestic call within the home country or international conferencing with other countries in the FreeConferenceCall.com network (currently 26 countries plus the United States) with the same call number
  • Ability to conference without a reservation for up to 96 callers (up to 6 hours) on one call at no additional cost
  • Conference call recording, playback and download features – all for free
  • The ability to distribute, archive or send recordings for free to listeners via RSS and podcast
  • Free international access numbers to every country in the network, including the United States, Canada, Mexico, and many countries in Europe, Africa and Asia
  • A free call detail report sent via email after every call
  • An online meeting feature makes it easy to conduct free screen sharing sessions, online presentations, webinars, demonstrations and more

FreeConferenceCall.com International was recently named the winner of two Stevie® Awards in the 9th Annual International Business Awards, the world’s premier business awards program. The company won the gold for Best Telecommunications Service of the Year and it also won the Bronze for Telecommunications Company of the Year, finishing behind Qualcomm Incorporated.
