Matrix Information Directory Services (MIDS) measures round trip packet time (ping time) between their location
and thousands of locations around the world six times a day, seven days a
week. This data is analyzed to produce an "Internet Weather
Reoprt" on their Web server. MIDS has been doing this for over
three years, and, inspite of greatly increased traffic and
predictions of the collapse of the Internet, they have found
average performance improving at roughly 15% per year.
