The program, Skype, is not conducive to hold large amounts of connections for chat conferences. No video.

I'm running into an issue and need a program that can support 100+ connections without crashing as a replacement to Skype.

I only want voice talking on this, I don't want video or text.

I have four recommendations so far, Whats Up, Tango, TeamSpeak, and Ventrillo.


I went to TeamSpeak and have learned a lot. Apparently, you can't have third party servers host for you for free unless you are a non-profit.

  1. I don't know how to set up my computer as a server.
  2. I'd like it to be free
  3. One time use for 1 hour
  4. All platforms supported, but if that isn't possible then Windows XP and up.

I have Windows 7 (but not Windows Server).

  • voice only. I don't want video and no texting. I don't want people complaining that they can't connect and they are dropping out all the time. I don't want to be spending my time doing administrative things for it vs. using it for the meeting I need it for. – user3300 May 26 '14 at 14:52
  • Thank you. And thank you for leading me to this site. I didn't know about it. I've used Super User for my Windows Server class. – user3300 May 26 '14 at 14:55
  • Ok. I thought they looked the same as if ran by the same group. Now I patiently wait. I have four recommendations so far, Whats Up, Tango, TeamSpeak, and Ventrillo. – user3300 May 26 '14 at 15:01
  • What operating system(s) must be supported by the clients? Must it be free (application & service), or what's the budget? – Izzy May 26 '14 at 15:21

What you're looking for is an audio conferencing solution. If you're in the US, you can use http://www.freeconferencecalling.com/free-conferencing.html:

  • free
  • it supports up to 1,000 callers in a single conference call with up to 25 callers able to speak at any given time.
  • conference calls are limited to 6 hours per single call.
  • the conference can be recorded.
  • not restricted to phone: most popular VOIP services like Skype can be used to call.
  • Thank you. So this is by phone and not by computer? – user3300 May 26 '14 at 16:14
