Thanks, Roger. I so did, and got an interesting result. You can see
that as I work my way out, the ping time gets slowly longer, but on
the last one, it jumps from ~13 ms to ~88 ms. Does that seem unusual,
or is because it's going across a large way? I did ping a (my
country's domain extension) address, but that does not necessarily
mean that the site is hosted here.

That seems to indicate a normal enough delay. The site may be relatively
overloaded. There is also a possibility that the actual machine at that
address might simply be a fowarding address to a Google site in the
US. That's about a 6700 mile (10800 km) sort of delay time difference.

So far that shows no packet loss. I'd run the pings for a longer time,
say 100 pings or so, and look at the summary. If there are zero dropped
packets then Google should seem normally responsive to you.
