How to Make a Conference Call on MTN, Jio, Airtel & Glo (Code)

Making or activating a conference call comes in handy, especially when working from home. Conference calls help to collaborate on various projects or assignments and so forth. 

While making these calls should not be challenging with various online video conferencing tools such as Zoom, Google Meet, Skype, Telegram, and even WhatsApp, everyone worldwide does not have access to stable internet. This is especially the case in Cameroon, Nigeria, Ghana, India, Zambia, South Africa, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Pakistan, Philippines, Indonesia, etc.

This has resulted in using alternative means such as cell phones, which are pretty expensive on their own.

You can still make a conference call on any mobile service provider if you intend to have a meeting consisting of less than seven participants.
