BuyerZone users average cost:
Teleconferencing prices are almost always set on a per-caller, per-minute basis, although there are some other options. Many providers like to provide a block of minutes for a set monthly fee, then charge the per-minute rate when those minutes run out. If you expect to make a ton of conference calls, you can also get unlimited plans.
As you might expect, buyers who planned to hold more conference calls or have more simultaneous users seemed to get slightly better pricing. Buyers who needed only 1 to 4 teleconferences per month pay an average of 4.9 cents per minute, while those holding 5 or more calls per month averaged 4 cents per minute. A penny per minute may not seem like much of a difference, but that is a savings of almost 20%.
The difference is smaller when looking at the number of callers: buyers with fewer than 10 simultaneous callers paid 4.6 cents per minute, and those with 10 or more callers paid 4.1 cents per minute - still an 11% savings.
