Asterisk will allow you to use these international numbers as well. You will
still need to have a sip trunk provider which the TDF probably already has
as well as a dial in number.

Mumble sadly doesn’t support the ability to interface with VoIP software at
all. Someone actually on their irc channel was laughing at the thought of
someone implementing the necessary interface to do that.

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 internet-access..

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....
