With my Fiber link, I'm getting:
- 140ms to Los Angeles, CA
- 165ms to Seattle, WA
- 177ms to Dallas, TX
- 207ms to New York, NJ
- 214ms to Beauharnois, QC (OVH)
Add an additional 25-35ms on those numbers and you'll the "somewhere about there" latency of someone on a regular ADSL(2+)/Cable line
Yeah, I'm down in Gigatown but 4 houses away from Fibre, which is apparently late 2016 or something according to the chorus map. ADSL2+ etc is still more popular than Fibre because people aren't switching, so yeah, 180 to LA, etc. Even then I don't agree with 140 as a suitable ping. When the OP asks for Australia and New Zealand I feel quite disappointed by the hosts that continue to say they have a good or 'premium' connection to New Zealand. The East Coast is certainly not an acceptable place to say that.
