A fast ping means a more responsive connection, especially in applications where timing is everything (like video games).
Ping is measured in milliseconds (ms).
Anything under 20ms is generally considered to be very good.
2ms is about as low as you’re going to get.
Is 25ms ping good?
In general though I would go with these rules of thumb: less than 50ms ping is really good, less than 100ms ping is good to average, 150ms is where you are going to start having problems with games, and above 150 ms ping you may experience lag and such in games.
What is a good ping result?
You can test the latency of your internet connection by using Speedtest.net, the most popular online speed test. (Fun fact: Speedtest was even featured in one of the Iron Man films.) Anything below a ping of 20ms is considered to be great, while anything over 150ms could result in noticeable lag.
What is acceptable ping?
What’s a good ping? An acceptable ping is around the 40ms-60ms mark or lower. A speed of over 100ms shows a noticeable delay and over 170 some games will reject your connection entirely. If you have, say a 10ms ping (0.01 seconds), your gameplay will seem faster and smoother than playing with 100ms, for example.
Does Faster Internet improve Ping?
In some ways, a faster internet connection will certainly help you reduce the ping to a server.
