  • How Much Network Lag is Too Much?

    The latency of a network is the amount of time that is needed for data to travel between a sender and a receiver. Even though all computers have some amount of network lag, it can fluctuate from time to time and for a variety of different reasons. The major cause of network latency is the route that is followed by the traffic through the internet servers and other backbone devices.
