    With IB you can test by going to
    Start->Run type 'cmd'
    then type
    ping gw1.ibllc.com

  6. Not bad at all !
    Are you collocated with your broker ?
  7. Yes.

    But... I closed my IB account about a year ago - that was over the internet.

    My colo latency is less than 125 microseconds. (average)
