On the other hand, VoIP conference calls imply broadband, which
depending on countries and personal economies can be a higher barrier
than a cheap call with a normal phone and one of those prefixes. 

This is probably an issue each new board should consider ad hoc to see
if there are issues with the elected members. This year this was not an
issue afaik.

It would be a good incentive to offer broadband sponsorship for one year
to those needing it to perform properly their board tasks. In any case
the bottom line is that money or technology shouldn't be a barrier to
become a board member.
