Although data communications can be measured in milliseconds and nanoseconds, there is always some delay between a data request and data transfer result. This delay is called latency and the closer transmission speeds come to zero, the better the latency between communicating devices is considered to be. Technically, the speed of light (3×108 m/s) rather than zero represents perfect latency.
