Thankfully, it appears so. The DSLReports bloat test was interesting, but
the jitter on the ~240ms base latency from South Africa (and other parts of
the world) was significant enough that the figures returned were often
unreliable and largely unusable - at least in my experience.
Fast.com reports my unloaded latency as 4ms, my loaded latency as ~7ms and
mentions servers located in local cities. I finally have a test I can share
with local non-technical people!
(Agreed, upload test would be nice, but this is a huge step forward from
what I had access to before.)
