Not a very good ping thought 21ms for FTTP.

Utter nonsense again.

Do you know where in the country he is? Ping increases as distance increases.
For Northern Ireland or Northern Scotland that's a great ping. For Inner London it's very poor.
The fact it's FTTP doesn't mean it will break the laws of physics and everyone will have 2ms ping times.

Darren is in Northern Ireland. Light can only travel so fast and takes a little while to get from there to London and back.

Building better networks, not just faster ones.

To parahase Montgomery Scott “You cannae change the laws of physics!”

Repeat after me, bandwidth is not the same as latency. Latency depends on round trip time and is limited by the speed of light, as transluminal communications are impossible under General Relativity. Consequently ping times depend on where you are physically located.

My 10Gbps work connection has ping times of 10ms to London from the central belt of Scotland, and I don't have to transit via an ISP, being JANET it's single hop via Manchester. It's another 4ms north to Aberdeen. Most of the University of the Highlands and Islands seems to be on AWS for their website and Office365 for email, so no easy way to check further north

My home connection also in the central belt which has to transit via an ISP exit point is 19ms, the fact it is FTTC rather than FTTP is irrelevant, it was the same when it was ADSL.

adslmax is rather a long way north of Watford Gap.

Approximately 52.6784° N v 52.3069° N

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains, site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Three 4G, tbb tests normally 35-45Mpbs down, 65Mbps off-peak, 9-24 up.

Watford Gap - that is the far and frozen unclivilised north. The border is at Watford which is way further south. Civilised society restarts when you go past Aberdeen.
