Question about latency, high ping and lagg

hello,

i would like to know i have a counter strike source server from new york and want to know if someone joins from texas and austrialia will they lagg or have a high ping and how would i be able to fix this?

Generally speaking, location doesn’t matter one bit when it comes to network latency. Instead, your network architecture, or “backbone”, is more of a factor.

Without knowing what your base latency is, it’s hard to answer your question. Most consumer connections have an average latency of 60-100 ms to ‘google.com’, which would be a good starting point.

Most hosted servers with a good connection will have latency around 5-10 ms to ‘google.com’, and varied latency to clients on consumer Internet connections.
