Latency is the amount of time it takes for a packet to travel from source to destination. In this case, latency refers to a delay in packet delivery and the variations in delay of packet delivery are called jitter.

Packet loss is the failure of one or more transmitted packets to arrive at their destination. This event can cause noticeable effects in all types of digital communications. Too much traffic in the network may cause the network to drop packets.

By referring to the website, users can discern where the source of a network problem lies. Accordingly, the institution violating its obligations will have to pay a fine.
