* Concurrent users are total number of users including hosts and participants online at one time. If your school has 1,000 students but only any 200 are online at any one time then you need a plan for only 200 concurrent users.

Zoom and some other BigBlueButton hosting providers are priced by license/host meaning only a single person can start a meeting. The above pricing offers unlimited licenses/hosts and only has a maximum concurrent users limit. In addition to the pricing above, we also offer Zoom's license based pricing on an annual basis, which is superior to Zoom in that there is no extra costs for hosting your recordings over 1GB.

** Pricing above available in all regions.
