Hi, I’m using Zoom Pro but have been looking at alternatives. As my internet can be variable I’ve even looked at bandwidth comparisons. (Skype is the lowest bandwidththen Teams and Zoom was a little higher)

The videoconferencing on the practicemanagement systems don’t have great bandwidth but an intergrated package might work well for someone with better internet than me.

I have Skype and don’t use it – why? I don’t know!!No one says anything positive yet colleagues in US use it a lot. Is anyone using Skype and feels positive about it then let me know!

A few months ago a colleague on Forum said they found StarLeaf good for occasional conferincing.

So, I’m about to try Teams paid subscription with free a try-out month. It says it prioritises audio signal AND I think families can upload videos (I’m using Drop Box subscription for that and families report it is complicated and it is expensive). It is a similar price to Zoom for the subscription I need with appointment option etc.
