Have you ever tried to Remote Desktop into a server with high latency? One great way to make a critical mistake in that kind of environment is to add latency to a user experience. Been there, done that... no thanks.I agree completely. But why does latency matter for a business? And for $400 more. I used internet for video conferencing in Rostov on Don Russia that had average 1100 ms latency, and it worked fine. Don't get me wrong, it was far from perfect, but the delay was still not as bad as the delay we see with a news report with an offsite interview.
Gaming? I can see it.
Keep in mind, I'm not trying to be contrarian. I honestly can't see how this makes sense.
Ready for this? In Maldives net access can easily run $25 equivalent a day.
Latency also maters when testing performance metrics in other IT fields. Shoot, even a web developer would struggle to dial in and test page loading or web service performance when having to add a random number to his test cases. I can just imagine how frustrating it would be.
