Linkmaster, where did you get that info? You can check the pings for yourself to various DCs. It will greatly depend on your geographical location, however, so it doesn't mean too much. Just for the record, I've been getting lower pings to NAC (where Bluewho is) than to most other DCs, even on the east cost. This was not the main reason I joined them, though. And I've never had a complaint from a client or a visitor about the speed of the sites loading.
Lots of hosts who advertise that they use NAC bandwidth use Pegasus / DedNow who have recently made changes/upgrades to their network. Maybe the latency / downtime caused by this has skewed the picture?
We've had no problems with latency to our servers direct with NAC on either the Vox or HTTPme side. There have been a couple of network outages of late, but these have been scheduled and nothing major.
