    It's just a packet being sent and seeing how quick the response is. Lower is better.

    San Jose has one of the main hubs and has one of the biggest pipes for the internet along the west coast

    Happens when you have a lot of datacenters and Google and Cisco are nearby :laugh:

    If you're referencing my speeds, I'm in Santa Rosa. San Jose was just the server it did the download/upload test from.
