Short Tutorial / FAQ – What Does the Term "Ping Rate" Mean?

Question: I've seen the term "ping rate" mentioned in online video games but I'm not sure what it means? Can you fill me in?

Answer: Ping rate is simply the delay of messages sent between computers; in other words, how fast you get a response after you've sent out a request. Ping rates will vary based on the quality of your Internet connection and the distance between the server and your computer. Ping is measured in milliseconds, and you can check yours at sites including www.speedtest.net. A fast ping means a more responsive connection, which is especially important in applications where timing is critical such as online video games.
