      I think mine is more than that, at about 90ms - gaming isn't too affected - though occaisionally lag is a pain on COD4.

      Also the route to the Xbox Live servers would be completely different anyways.

      Also when playing games you will be playing on a peer to peer (p2p) network so ping and latency will be totally dependant on who you are playing with and their location.

      In this case your upload speed will most likely be one of the limiting factors as you'll be sending data to the other players and the mid and max packages have good upload speeds.

      I managed to get my max delays lowered and if I ping jolt.co.uk I get 31ms. As mentioned earlier it will depend on your ping to the hosting player.
