Hello Graham

There will be several hops from here to the other side of the Atlantic and back - here's a "traceroute" I just ran, which shows just about half of them. Note the different timings for each hop on the right, in milliseconds:

If one of those hops lands on a dodgy router, those milliseconds could become seconds, and your browsing experience will suffer as a result.
