not "just" a VoIP provider. It provides international telephone
conferencing using standard telephone numbers that are free to call
from various countries in the world. That is pretty special....

I also liked the audio quality of mumble very much (at least I had a
feedback on my microphone settings - when dialing in using my
softphone I always wonder whether people can hear me or whether I blow
their ears :-))

Biggest drawback with mumble is that it requires internet connectivity
for all participants. Especially for the BOD-calls this was a
KO-criteria since Florian and others rely on being able to call in
from the road, using their regular telephones, not having

But that of course doesn't mean that other groups cannot use mumble..
But as Björn correctly stated: When mumble was rolled out for testing
(along with openmeeting for example as another alternative) - feedback
was basically nonexistent.
And when it went offline, nobody complained....
