I need to get some latency stats before getting a connection to ensure it's suitable for my purpose. If you live in Peterborough with a Virgin Media connection and are willing to help me, it only takes a few minutes and I'd appreciate it greatly.
1. Ensure your computer is connected to your router via Ethernet and the WiFi is turned off.
2. If you are using a laptop, please ensure it is connected to its charger and the charger is turned on.
3. Run a trace route and paste the result in a reply: -- If you have Mac: go to Launchpad > Terminal. This will open a black box. Type traceroute -d 22.214.171.124 and press enter. -- If you have Windows: right click Start icon > Run > type cmd and press enter. This will open a black box. Type tracert -d 126.96.36.199 and press enter.
After a few seconds to a minute, it should finish. Please copy and paste the results.

Thank you for your response. I'm a network engineer and a traceroute will tell me exactly what the tool was intended for. The chances of someone answering are zero but since it only took me a minute to write the post and can potentially save me the hassle of getting a line installed, there's no harm done.
