Title: Re: PAIX
Well... remember it's speed of light THROUGH fiber which isnt the same, its actually a bit slower then "c"
Coast to coast you should see 35 - 65ms depending on the route.
We've all had this thread about router overhead. If there is a congestions point in the middle with buffering and traffic level priorities running, then you are right. Otherwise I dont think you should see 150-180ms.
In the real world however, yes, off several dsl links Im seeing those levels to various sites, I think it's more a factor of congested peering links or traffic aggregation at a hub. People arent spending the money to upgrade links right now.

25 MS is assuming that the only delay is due to the speed of light. Add equipment, especially routers or other gear that requires manipulating packets and the delays add up quickly. I once read that the most people wil tolerate on a regular basis is around 150-180 ms. I think that is much too high for regular use
