How to send a fax over the Internet for free

Let’s see right away how to send a fax over the Internet for free. As I told you in the opening lines of the post, the services that allow you to perform this operation – such as those I am about to tell you about – are not 100% free. Some of them are characterized by limits on the number of faxes that can be sent each month; others, on the other hand, can be used for free without limits, but only for rather short trial periods.

In both cases, however, it is necessary to take out a subscription to access the fax sending function, to be canceled before the end of the test. For more details, read on: everything is explained below.
