Hello,
We’d like to be able to have audio hybrid meetings in MS Teams. Some users need sometimes to connect to Teams meeting with a phone (no internet access or low bandwidth). The Team audio conferencing is included in the MS O365 E5 license but not in the E3 neither E1. We don’t want to subscribe to E5 for everybody. Could we subscribe to Teams audio conferencing as an option for E3 and E1 users? if yes, what is the monthly price per user? In addition, we have several questions about this option :

- Country list coverage for call in and call back?
- Is the option price for unlimited usage? Or is it limited and after we are charged a specific price per minute/country (call back)?

 

Kind regards

Hi @DiVojich 

I would take a look at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/microsoft-teams/online-meetings?rtc=1#customerstoryreg..., which states:

If you have Office 365 E1 or E3, Audio Conferencing is available for a $4.00/month add-on fee1.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/try-or-purchase-audio-conferencing-in-office-365-for...

 

You might want to also consider the Business Voice License that includes the Phone System, Domestic Calling Plan and Audio Conferencing. At around 12 a user/month.

 

In terms of the cost, you can either choose to go toll free and you would incur the cost by way of Communication Credits. Think of this as a pay as you go credit that can be used for this purpose, so the caller does not have to incur a cost or you can use a local number, that will be charged at the local carriers rate.

 

In terms of locations:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/country-and-region-availability-for-audio-conferenci...

 

Thanks
