    Latest ISP latency comparison

    Another Truenet comparison
    Good comparison for gamers

    A few unexpected results it think, I didn't expect telecom to do as bad as it did.

    IMO the differences are only really negligible at best... these are statistics for off-net traffic after all.

    Why do so many people still have interleaving on (presuming that's what's causing the figures to be so high rather than 90% of people testing from Invercargill?).

    When I was with Telecom, I'd ping ~20ms to the first hop, but ~40ms to the second, so everything was 40ms+ away.
    With Slingshot, ~20ms is pretty much anywhere in Auckland.

    Some people require it to be on for a stable connection, it's usually the first thing that gets changed from an ISPs end if a customers complaining about frequent d/c's.

    The leaders are Vodafone for national latency and TelstraClear Cable for international latency.
    O_o

    it completely depends where you're going to.. most of the isp's will be kind of similar for facebook, but to sea.battle.net there's a lot more variation.

    You have to remember...

    National test is probably just to trademe and the international is only to one host/server in the US.

    Some ISP's have interleaving on by default.

    Some ISP's have their routers configured to drop/delay worthless ICMP packets.
