The switch from 2G to 3G and now 4G has largely benefited internet users in India. Although it has enhanced the speed of uploading and downloading files, at times many of us face issues when making video calls via supporting apps or playing multiplayer games with users across dynamic geographies.
In this age of digital transformation, network providers are giving better bandwidth, but do you know why there are issues during video calls and while playing games? It is because of something called “latency”, which is basically the time taken for “data to travel from one designated place to another”.
Latency is measured in milliseconds (ms) and anything below 50ms is considered ideal for surfing, but if it is around 100ms it could get frustrating.
