A buddy and I tried this out. It is functional, but the quality is not so good, even with only two people. If you switch to using open MIC, things get really bad, while it says "open mic" it really only activates after you start talking, so you have to say something, then say what you wanted to say. Using a button to talk, when in combat is not so good. I disabled the in game voice, and will be using teamspeak for flleet stuff, and skype with small groups. Nice start, but stlll needs work.
