As a data point for this, I have fibre to my apartment building and
ethernet into the apartment. I get .5 ms to my upstream gateway and
about 6 ms to Google. Still measured up to ~20 ms of bufferbloat while
running at 100 Mbps...


However, as that graph shows, it is quite possible to completely avoid
bufferbloat by deploying the right shaping. And in that case fibre
*does* have a significant latency advantage. The best latency I've seen
to the upstream gateway on DSL has been ~12 ms.
