      ping
      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      ping is a computer network tool used to test whether a particular host is reachable across an IP network. It works by sending ICMP “echo request” packets to the target host and listening for ICMP “echo response” replies. ping estimates the round-trip time, generally in milliseconds, and records any packet loss, and prints a statistical summary when finished.

      The word ping is also frequently used as a verb or noun, where it can refer directly to the round-trip time, the act of running a ping program or measuring the round-trip time.

      In other words, the smaller the ping time, the closer you are to the IP's location, therefore the faster the connection.

      Regards.

      Also, I wouldnt be too worried about that ping that is displayed on the speedtest.

      It is hardly accurate.
