Can you provide me this service ??? And what will be the cost ??
A: It may be related to your location and the location of the servers.
Frankly, 2 seconds is excellent
At a certain point the physical limitations of distance and connections are reached and cannot be bypassed. The average user will experience some latency as the common route follows the following:
Router or direct connection to cable modem
Cable modem connects to either cable/fiber
Cable/fiber connects to local node
* Node connects to main network
* Main network connects to server
* Server redistributes signal
* Server connects to main network
* Main network connects to local node
Local node connects to cable/fiber
Cable/fiber connects to cable modem
Modem connects to router or direct connection
The starred lines are generally direct fiber optic (instant to human eye) connections and the remaining connections are generally copper cable, and thus, slower connections.
