  • Question

  • If we add PSTN Conferencing and Cloud PBX licenses to a E3 user this allows them to audio conference and dial calls on the PSTN network correct?

    How many conference minutes are included with this licenses?

    How many local and long distance minutes are included with this license?  How do I find international calling rates?

    Are these now available in every US market?  Can you get a block of continuous numbers?

    Thank you for the information.

  • THis is What Microsoft saying about  the PSTN calling conferencing plans 

    The PSTN Services are available via different subscription offers:

    PSTN Domestic Calling (domestic calling only);

    PSTN Domestic and International Calling (domestic and international calling);

    and PSTN Conferencing (VoIP meetings including PSTN dial-in and dial-out connectivity)

    PSTN Conferencing    There is not a specific cap for the number of dial-in minutes allowed for each PSTN Conferencing subscription, but we reserve the right to restrict and shut down dial-in or domestic dial-out PSTN conferencing to limit abuse and/or fraud and to maintain service performance. We also reserve the right to modify or remove PSTN conferencing dial-in number(s) previously assigned to you to maintain good quality of service.

    How many local and long distance minutes are included with this license?  How do I find international calling rates?

    PSTN Domestic and International Calling    3000 calling minutes per user/per calendar month which includes inbound calls originating from any country and outbound calls to US domestic locations –OR- 600 international outbound calling minutes per user/per month (whichever cap is reached first).

    Are these now available in every US market?  Can you get a block of continuous numbers?

  • To finish off SunilkumarS response; you can indeed acquire a continuous block of numbers from Microsoft. Alternately you also have the option of porting any DDI number blocks you might own with an existing carrier over to Microsoft.

    Please remember that when in doubt, it's always best to just jump on the phone and have the discussion with an official representative or third party consultant. Where advice is given regarding subscriptions and finances, it's always sensible to have said advice confirmed via email so you have a point of reference if you commit to something that pans out to be different from how you understood it being.
