Yes, but as soon as you hit the long distance network the latency is the 
same regardless of access method. So while I agree that understanding the 
effect of latency is important, it's no longer a meaningful way of selling 
fiber access. If your last-mile is fiber instead of ADSL2+ won't improve 
your long distance latency.
