What's with the "latency?" Is that a delay period

Response time of the connection - how long it takes to receive a ping. MS-DOS command equivalent would be "C:\ping www.yahoo.com". As in:
Quote:
C:\Documents and Settings\User>ping www.yahoo.com

Pinging www.yahoo-ht2.akadns.net [69.147.114.210] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 69.147.114.210: bytes=32 time=35ms TTL=50
Reply from 69.147.114.210: bytes=32 time=28ms TTL=50
Reply from 69.147.114.210: bytes=32 time=30ms TTL=50
Reply from 69.147.114.210: bytes=32 time=28ms TTL=50

Ping statistics for 69.147.114.210:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 28ms, Maximum = 35ms, Average = 30ms

Interesting, this is my result from the corporate apartment I'm staying at while in Carlsbad, CA. I'll have to try this again when I get home in a couple of weeks.

Downspeed is nice, but most of the delays I find are from the sites I visit.

True, I can't "surf" any faster with 15.5 mbps than I could with 1.5 mbps... the sites are all too slow to handle it. I do notice it when I download video and music, however.
