My new ISP - much better

Here's the test results from

Same line speed of 2Mbps, but it only costs 1/4 as much and the latency is 37ms as opposed to 337ms! That's nearly 10 times better than ANTEL.

My Virgin cable internet is due to be upgraded from 2Mbps to 10Mbps at no cost during June 2009.

you can't compare the latency when pinging from montevideo to USA against wallington to London. There is more than a small difference in distance.

The latency on the connection was indeed as stated, and your comments are valid. However, when testing against servers in Argentina, the latency was over 600 ms!! I don't know how ANTEL manage that when it's only across the bay from Montevideo to Buenos Aires.

I was trying to show ANTEL in a slightly better light, which is perhaps more than they deserve.

Thanks for your comments anyway Anonymous Poster.
