From Australia to CQG Chicago it's around 250 ms.

@Revan: your bandwidth is fine, the market data don't need a lot.
Whatever you do, being connected to CQG servers in Australia you will still get 250 ms-300 ms latency so you should be careful during news and very volatile times.

Sure thing, I am trading the slower/thicker markets so hopefully that will aid those moments, always good to have a tech's input, cheers.

For the sake of the thread I ended up running the landline test and my ping to Sydney is now 30ms, the ping from my computer to Sydney then to Chicago is 300ms, as previously forecasted.

Edit: I'm not with CQG I just sent them an email enquiry. fyi.
