Issues calling webex conferences

Post by chuckda4th » Fri Oct 02, 2009 7:17 am

Anyone else have issues calling webex conferences specifically using their Ooma line?

I have a weekly conference that I typically have to dial into 2-3 times before I can hear anyone else. They can always hear me fine. It's especially strange considering I can hear all the webex prompts to enter in the meeting number and whatnot, and have no issues until the voice says "entering conference", when I hear the "beep beep" that I'm entering the conference then there's a bit of an explosion sound, and then I can't hear anyone.

I've never had an issue dialing in using my cell phone or other landlines first try, nor has anyone else on my weekly conference.

Any ideas?

I just tried a GoToMeeting on my Internet connection and had no problems with Ooma - Not Webex, but WebEx like.

I have also experienced the same issues as you. Have you been able to resolve this?

Some conferencing sites are making money by charging higher than normal connection fees to the callers phone company. The last example I heard about the fee was 4 times normal. Phone companies are starting to fight back by blocking calls to these greedy sites. That is probably what you have run into.
