The first 25 connections for Webex are pretty cheap, but after that it starts
to get obnoxiously expensive. They have a strange pricing model that actually
penalizes you for using more. Kind of like a pusher trying to get someone
addicted. A taste is cheap, and once you're hooked...

It does work well though. I have done webinars at work where I ran Linux in a
vnc session on Windows, and then to Webex, all over the planet. Latency was
minimal.
