light speed 300000 km/sec
light speed in optical fiber 200000 km/sec
distance from Australia to Kazakstan 12000 km
packet of information incoming and outgoing 12000x2=24000
we need faster than light :(
But optical fiber Kaz to Au doesnt exist this just theory.
Current ping Kaz to Australia is 300-400 ping. from Kazakstan > server china > server thailand > server indonesia > Au server then back to kaz. that why 400 ping.
1 sec delay = 1000 ping
The kilometre stuff is wrong, you can't know how many km there is as it isn't going in a straight line but it depends on the network's web. Furthermore, it is not because you have a great connection in your own country that it will last until your destination.
Otherwise, check this out: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ping_(networking_u..
The ping command is usually used as a simple way to verify that a computer can communicate over the network with another computer or network device. The ping command operates by sending Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) Echo Request messages to the destination computer and waiting for a response
