In response to the latest outbreak of COVID-19, our technology partners at Cisco have come forward to help those impacted by the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) by offering free 90-day Webex licenses to businesses who are not Webex customers, the company announced on March 2.
According to a Cisco blog post, the company has also enhanced its free Webex account offerings to help its existing customers meet their increasingly changing needs as they enable a significantly higher number of remote workers.
The additional features include:
- Unlimited usage (no time restrictions)
- Supports up to 100 participants
- Offers toll dial-in (in addition to existing VoIP capabilities).
Additionally, through our partners and the Cisco sales team, we are providing free 90-day licenses to businesses that are not Webex customers in this time of need. We’re also helping existing customers meet their rapidly changing needs as they enable a much larger number of remote workers by expanding their usage at no additional cost.
The Free Webex personal account on webex.com is available in the following countries:
- Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macau, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, UAE (United Arab Emirates), Ukraine, United Kingdom, United States, and Vietnam.
