I read allot of people having problems with datafeeds. My thoughts if some of you can post you ping response time to your datafeed from your Trading PC. For example, I ran Visualroute to following IP's I have for some datafeeds and got this response. esignal - 22.214.171.124, 11 Hops, 28ms iqfeed - 126.96.36.199, 13 Hops, 64ms ameritrade - ameritrade02.streamer.com 9 hops 59ms IB - 188.8.131.52, 10 hops 30ms For me there is less latency to eisgnal and IB and I find both much faster for me. I am in NJ area and both are also located closer to me. Even latency to iqfeed and ameritrade is still low. I have a fiber optic FIOS connection at 50mbs/20mbs and quality is high. So what I would like to get from some of you is to run similar tests to these IPs from your network using Visualroute. I downloaded demo and ran business version to make these tests. http://www.visualroute.com/ In the gaming world they make sure the game server they play on and there connection + tweaks can get them low latency for reliable game speeds without any hickups while they play. I am sure some of you can probably benefit by determining what dataprovider is closer and the latency from your network to the provider.
