Have you ever watched an old movie, where two people listened on the end of a phone to what someone on the other end was saying? That is how teleconferences used to happen. Since the days of black and white TV, teleconferencing has come a long way. There are speakers, headphones, remote number to dial where multiple people can join in and even International accessibility that wasn’t available before. You don’t even need a landline to be able to communicate with partners, customers or potential clients. Internet teleconferencing has revolutionized how small, medium and even large sized businesses communicate.
There are no reviews for this yet.
Teleconferencing can still be done with phones over landlines. Instead of sharing a receiver with another person, you can opt to have a teleconference over a speaker phone, each person hooked up to their own phone or even a group listening over a speaker. Conferencing can be done by anyone who has a phone connection.
Teleconferencing can also be done via software on the Internet. In most cases, the programs are free or will have a monthly service fee if you use it for business or have additional features requested. The monthly fee for having the software is still probably much cheaper than it would cost you if you were to be making those phone calls over landlines and having to keep track of the minutes you talked. Teleconferencing also allows you to have better connections, without static and background fuzz that is often heard through landlines over far away connections.
Using the Internet to Communicate
Using the Internet to communicate is very popular for many reasons. The first being the low cost to communicate with someone on the other side of the world. Instead of paying sky high land line rates per minute, you can sit at an IP connection and talk over a headset, just like as if you were on a phone line. The only difference is that in most cases it is free for the users. Who can argue with free? Whether your teleconference is business or personal, the Internet allows you to contact anyone in the world and talk, as long as they have an Internet connection. Internet teleconferencing is also becoming popular because it is so easy to use. In most situations, you click on a user and you are automatically dialed in to them, without having to dial yourself!
