It's a rough measurement, and if you'd go so far as to assign a 20% error

of the click-to-data time, over 50%.

Especially if it's using the particularly sub-optimal (aka 'broken')
network stack that a very popular server operating system has.

In fact, some recent measurements of mine show a large variance even
for a connection setup on a local network depending upon what IP
stacks are involved: varying between 0.39s and 0.007s. (Unsurprisingly
the broken stack referred to above works quite well with itself, and
not too bad with an earlier OS from the same company - if I didn't
know better I might believe that they only tested with their own

(this isn't really operational so if you want names let me know
privately. Perhaps someone out there has some clout.)
