    In time eg seconds what is the difference between a ping of , say 50 compared with a ping of 150?

    Ping is in milliseconds. So 150 is a tenth of a second longer than 50. Quite a lot. :)

    It's in milliseconds. 1ms = 1000th of a second. So 100 ping is 10th of a second.

    Basically the lower the better. It's measured by timing how long the server takes to respond to data sent

    A ping of 150 is quite high
