I'm uk based as I suspect is the OP. There are enough uk
servers in the stratum-2 list and I don't believe that
choice of server based on stratum is a particulary good
idea unless the server also happens to be close.
Average over 10 days from peer_summary monitored from another
pc on lan:
mean rms max
PPS(2) .PPSb. 0.000 0.003 0.025
GPS_NMEA(2) .GPSb. 0.022 0.793 288.798
me6000g .MSFa. 1.061 0.578 1.435
k6x400 me6000g 1.563 3.480 12.714
Pool monitoring shows both servers within +/-1.5ms and
considering congestion or contention on my adsl connection
at the moment that 1.5ms doesn't seem so bad.
