Thanks to Remco de Kramer, Product Marketing Manager Modern Work at Microsoft for the news, on October 1st Microsoft will be adding Calling Plans for

  • Austria
  • Denmark
  • Italy
  • Portugal
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland

So far there are no details on the official documentation, but I will update this post when they appear.

There are two ways to get a user phone number and PSTN connectivity in Microsoft Teams

  • A Microsoft provided Calling plan that includes your user phone number and a bundle of minutes
  • Direct Routing – bringing your own Session Border Controller and Carrier connection, or having a third party carrier provide both as a service

Microsoft offers calling plans as a per-user licence. They bundle up a number of minutes and a phone number for users. All service is provided directly from Microsoft via Office 365 with no additional PSTN carrier contract.

Until now Microsoft has offered 10 countries

  • Belgium
  • Canada
  • France
  • Germany
  • Ireland
  • Puerto Rico
  • Netherlands
  • Spain
  • United Kingdom (U.K.)
  • United States (U.S.)

So that brings the total countries covered by Microsoft up to 16. Microsoft has not added a country since Canada in May 2018 so adding 5 countries is a big announcement.

There are also directly Office 365 integrated partners that offer calling plans Telstra for Australia and Japan with Softbank.
