This Conferencing service is a cost-effective, efficient and convenient. A customer can simply dial in to the bridge to automatically start a conference. The application dials out to one or more numbers belonging to each individual and as people pick up their calls; they are automatically placed into an audio conference. The service also allows them the flexibility to dial in and join/re-join as necessary. The charges for calls using Insta conferencing are based on flat billing and will be independent of the voice plan / add-on packs, which the customer has subscribed. Charges will be levied based on the actual number of participants in the conference and the respective duration for which each of them participated.
