any answers would be appreciated=] i'm quite concerned.
Don't base your latency on just one site. If that site was saturated during the time of your test, or it is excessive network hops away from you, it will affect your ping times. Ping other sites and see what you get. Many sites don't respond to ping, but www.yahoo.com
, your DNS servers, www.google.com
, etc, are good tests.
