FCC and Big Carriers Putting the Squeeze on Your Free Conference Calls

Conference call services are under attack. Currently, large long-distance carriers like AT&T and Verizon are petitioning the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to undermine free conference calling services. If we don’t act now, we estimate the potential cost to consumers and businesses could be as much $80 million annually if they are unable to use their long-distance phone plans to access free conference call services.

When consumers make long-distance calls, including free conference calling, long-distance carriers like AT&T and Verizon pay a small fee to local phone companies to help complete those calls. Today, long-distance carriers are trying to put free conferencing services out of business, hoping that, by doing so, these carriers will not only eliminate a minor cost, but also gain substantial profits by forcing millions of callers to instead use their non-free, pay-as-you-go conferencing plans.

Across the United States, people – like you – use free conference calling services to connect with non-profit organizations, prayer groups, startups, schools, global corporate communities and most importantly, their families.

Today, we need your support to stop the proceedings in WC Docket No. 18-155 before the FCC takes free conference calling services away from consumers nationwide and puts even more money into the pockets of long-distance carriers.
