    *moved thread to appropriate forum*

    Really it depends on the type of connection
    there are numerous metrics to measure for performance

    the important ones are

    throughput
    and latency

    latency is the time taken for a round trip from one point to another, generally (hopfully) in miliseconds
    throughput is the data that can be fit down the pipe, this is proportionate to bandwidth and latency
