Many companies, including Vonage, 8x8 and AT&T, typically offer calling within the country for a fixed fee and a low per-minute charge for international. Broadband Internet access (cable or DSL) is required, and regular house phones plug into an analog telephone adapter (ATA) provided by the company or purchased from a third party. Use of this technology outside of GoToMeeting/GoToWebinar is not supported by ASHRAE. 

  • Skype is software that allows users to make telephone calls over the Internet. Calls to other users of the service and to free-of-charge numbers are free, while calls to other landlines and mobile phones can be made for a fee. Additional features include instant messaging, file transfer and video conferencing. Not supported by ASHRAE.
