Brazilians have seen recent improvements in fixed broadband latency as demand for online gaming rises during the Covid-19 outbreak, a new study has found. Latency - the reaction time of a connection - varies between countries across Latin America, particularly when it comes to fixed broadband. Latency is a key metric in gaming and determines much of the user's experience in terms of the absence of lags during gameplay. According to the data from Ookla's Speedtest Intelligence, gamers in Brazil had the lowest mean latency on fixed broadband, relevant for games played on PC and console games, at 19 ms during Q2 2020, down from 23 ms in the same period in 2019. By comparison, Colombia had the highest fixed broadband latency at 43 ms.
