Just move the decimal place three digits to the left and change kilo to mega

That's simple. I thought it was more complicated than that. The internet tells me "A Megabyte is 1,048,576 bytes or 1,024 Kilobytes." You don't just move the decimal point. Is it different with bits?

That was driving me nuts, I couldn't think of the song I just knew that was a line from.

.38 Special - Rockin' Into The Night

As you were, people.

Now this: once you get past 20mb you have enough for all the Netflix you want and PING starts to become more interesting for you.

PING is much more important in gaming, video over IP such as Skype, voice over IP such as all telephony.

By these standards Sic is the current record holda for bandwidth, but glatt is the record holda for PING at 10ms. That means the Internets are faster for him because his clicks reach the destination website much faster, results seem snappier and more responsive, and if he makes video or audio calls, the signal is clean and not full of glitches and jitter.

When I first got FIOS, my brother the programmer guy checked my ping to see if I could do some beta testing with his online gaming company. He was blown away by my number, as it was the fastest he had ever seen. I think it was an 8 or 9 then.

But I had no time for gaming, so it never happened.

Maybe it has something to do with all the intelligence agencies around here. But they can't be using the same fiber networks I use, can they?

And looking back through the thread, I see my employer has a fast connection with a 5ms ping. We've got like 500 VOIP phones here in this building.

I imagine a lot is just how close you physically are to a lot of the major switches of the entire Internets. I don't know exactly how the backbones route these days, but the whole schmear pretty much grew up around Vienna, and all of NoVA. It used to be that to get a packet from Philly to Pittsburgh you had to go through NoVA.
