Free Mega Conference Calls For Skype Users

by Bruce Stewart

Skype and Vapps have teamed up to offer a service that claims to support up to 500-person conference calling for free to all Skype users. It's great to see Skype offering more innovative free services, though I'm a little sceptical of how well 500-person Skype conference calls would actually work. If anyone is creating some very large conference calls with this new HighSpeed Conferencing service and wants to invite me in to the call to squash my scepticism, by all means let me know.

Of course, the new Radio Handi service offers similar free conference-calling capabilities to all SIP-based VoIP callers for conferences calls of up to 20 participants.
