FreeConference Adds Web Conferencing Features

Los Angeles-based FreeConference, a provider of free conference calling services, said this morning that it has added web conferencing features to its lineup of services. The company, which had previously only offered the free conference calling services, said that its new SharePlus Desktop Sharing service will allow users to share any application or presentation from their desktop. The new service is currently free while the service is in beta. FreeConference is one of the companies taking advantage of FCC regulations which allow rural telcos to charge extra for connections into their network, which are used to pay for the free conference calling services.
