In any conference call, no matter what conference bridge or provider you use, the clarity will decrease somewhat as you add more participants. The more conference participants, the more likely the use of cell phones, cordless phones, speakerphones, headsets, background noise, and other low-quality transmission problems.

Since all lines are bridged together, a conference call can never be better than its worst connection. This can be managed and mitigated by having participants put themselves on mute via the *6 key unless they’re speaking or placing your call in one of our specialty conference modes.
