Hi. I was just wondering about the ping statistics. Supposing I have a 1mb fractional t1 connection, from a theoretical point of view, i should be able to transmit 125KB of data per second from my WAN port to my provider's port or an a one way delay, if i transmit 32 bytes, of 0.256ms granting that my workstation is the only pc accessing the internet. But when i do a ping to let's say www.yahoo.com, i would get a round trip time of around 200ms which would be equivalent to 150ms one way delay. Dividing 32 bytes by this 200ms would result in 160 bytes per second. I am sorry but i am extremely confused. I understand that there are latencies involved from my provider's routing device to yahoo's server but computing the delay from that premise would yield a 200ms - 0.256ms = 199.744ms delay. It just seems to me that even if i reduce my bandwidth by ten it would hardly affect the overall delay.
Thank you in advance to anyone who can clarify this for me.
