These can be a little bit misleading at times, Ping Times can and will be effected during peak times, more people on the Network, more congestion, examples below are 2 from my office direct, ( I bet you all wish you had that result Wink)and 3 different XNet ADSL connections in my office, pings time are good, try it a couple of times during the day as well as trying several times in a row,

For latency the best way to look at it is like a motorway, during the day you can generally travel at the speed limit ie the speed of your connection plan , but during the peak times when it's crowded you are contending with a lot more people on the network all contending for the same amount of space and if it dosn't all fit you have to slow down (ie latency), so possibly during peak times you may get more higher ping times.

I shall do some more speed tests at different times and see what I get.
Question. If for example there was say 100 xnet connections at my exchange and another isp had say 500 connections
would the xnet customers get better speeds or not. (taking in account distance from exchange).

By the way I am on the Massey (Don Buck) exchange 1.2km to the exchange.
