    I would like to know what is the internet speed of my broadband connection?

    When I pinged www.google.com

    Got message as below

    ipaddress: bytes : 32 , time = 96 ms TTL = 56
    ipaddress: bytes : 32 , time = 54 ms TTL = 56
    ipaddress: bytes : 32 , time = 37 ms TTL = 56
    ipaddress: bytes : 32 , time = 99 ms TTL = 56
    ipaddress: bytes : 32 , time = 92 ms TTL = 56
    ipaddress: bytes : 32 , time = 93 ms TTL = 56
    ipaddress: bytes : 32 , time = 45 ms TTL = 56
    ipaddress: bytes : 32 , time = 39 ms TTL = 56

    Ping command is designed for checking the IP level connectivity between host and client. So when you type in ping and some domain name or IP address, the server responds with the time it takes for connectivity. That time is displayed back in the ms counter.

    As for the TTL, it stands for the time to leave, it shows how the packet in the network remained and whether to discard it or not. Think of it as a hop counter in between the network to go to and from the server to host. That time will be counted and showed in the TTL counter value.

    Size of the ping packet is easy to modify so the time in the ms and also the time in TTL will vary based on higher and lower number of packet size mentioned.
