Why is ‘ping’ time recorded?

The ping helps to record the service availability. It is a very low bandwidth test which essentially is a “wave” hello from the internet to ensure the service is active and measures the responsiveness of the connection. A faster response time is critical for real-time applications such as internet voice calls (VoIP) and online gaming.
