Ping Response Time Classification
The ping command sends ICMP packets to the destination IP address or hostname and the destination responds this with ICMP reply packets. During this round-trip, some time goes on. This time is called as
ping response time . Generally, the ping response time is related to the ISP performance sometimes it may be related with LAN, WiFi or ping destination performance. Below you can find related ping response times and their ratings.
- 35ms or less is referred as Excellent or perfect. This response time do not have any delay about the communication.
- 35ms to 60ms is referred as Avarage or Good. This response time is most common in internet.
- 60ms to 110ms is referred as Slow or Bad. This reponse time do not provides any good user experience about web browsing.
- 111ms to higher is referred as Exremely Slow and this generally means there is a connectivity bottleneck or problem.
