An online poll carried out by has shown that most commuters are increasingly concerned about chaos during the 2012 Olympic Games and want to see conference calling to bypass this the high volumes of crowds that will be flooding in and around London.

A total of 80% of the commuters polled voted "Yes definitely!" to using conference calling to avoid the crowds during the Olympics, while a further 10% thought conference calls were a good idea.

The remainder said they would continue to use conference calling as usual during the Olympic period. Absolutely no-one ruled out the conference calling option in favour of commuting as usual.

Other results from the poll found that 56% of commuters will opt for 'bike/walking' to be their best option for business travel during the Olympics, while 33% of commuters will be working from home for 'at least some' of time.

Andy Pearce, Joint CEO of Powwownow, a free conference calling provider in the UK who sponsored the LoveHateTravel campaign, commented:  "Olympic congestion is yet another good reason for stressed commuters to pick up the phone instead of travelling."
