Pretty nice, considering it is provided to me by the University, through COX Communications, and I don't have to pay for it. Well, I guess I kinda have to pay it. Part of my $13,000 a year I fork over to them.

Not too bad...

My connection should go to 8meg one day, but for the time being my 2meg has scored nicely.



As for the distance? No way am I 200 miles from London, more like 40.

Latency is the time taken for the data to transfer I think, to put it vaguely. It's more or less the same as the Ping in games and depends upon location. Try opening a command promt and typing something like "ping www.bbc.co.uk"

That latancy is good ghost. Who is your ISP? Admittedly it looks like you are close to the server, but still not bad. I'm also using wireless, but it only adds a 1ms delay so almost negligable.

Edit: which wireless gear are you using? My Belkin is great, out of all the brands I've used it has by far the lowest ping times.
