Dear FreeConference Customer:
On October 15th, 2008, Kevin Martin, Chairman of the FCC (Federal Communications Commissions), announced a proposal to reform "intercarrier compensation". Major telephone carriers, like AT&T, Verizon & Sprint, are aggressive advocates of this reform as they would reap millions from this proposal. Who will pay for it? You will.
"This could be potentially a billion-dollar giveaway to phone monopolies, paid for out of consumers' pocketbooks," said Chris Murray, an attorney with Consumers Union.
What does this mean to you?
In addition to higher phone bills, it would mean the end of free conferencing services such as FreeConference.com. Services such as ours create low–cost options for consumers, incremental revenues for long distance carriers, and additional business opportunities for rural telephone companies.
With the elimination of the current system, we will no longer be able to provide our customers with free conferencing services and you will be stuck with higher phone bills. We will continue to offer conferencing, but we may be required to charge our customers for it. Meanwhile, carriers like AT&T, Verizon & Sprint are raking in the profits.
