Personally, I never had an issue with Mumble other than I don’t like the text chat or the private messaging. I prefer Teamspeak because it has so many options for various things like setting Phonetic names for example. When A person enters the channel then Teamspeak will tell you who it is based on the Phonetic name that they set.

If you don’t need a paid solution like Mumble or Teamspeak then I suggest you check out the post about the Best Voice Chat Programs for Gaming. It has a few free options that you might want to consider if you’re not a hardcore guild or clan. There is also a video on this page that will show you the exact latency tests for the same VoIP software.
