Does it matter whether it's only the cable side or the transition from ethernet to cable? Both processes are out of the users control... But I can confirm ~35ms on the first hop with my cable access...

I have been looking for information on the latency associated with the
cable modem. So far this is the only information I found, but it is not
clear whether this refers just to the latency on the cable side, or also
includes the latency of converting from the Ethernet side to the cable
"The average DOCSIS upstream latency for best effort traffic has been
measured to be 11-15 ms with the potential of a significantly higher
maximum latency up to 50 ms under medium to heavy channel utilization."
So already a significant latency, and potentially high latency variation,
before even getting to the first router.
It is impressive that you have found a way to play live together with that

Only to the extent of estimating whether that is the actual range of
latency to expect from your house to the upstream router, or whether there
is additional latency added on to that as a minimum.

Is that 35ms one way, or round trip? Is that the value reported from
traceroute? I'm looking at that now at my house, but I'm not familiar
with how to interpret the numbers, I will need to study the man page a
But if the interpretation is as obvious as it seems then it seems like the
system in our neighborhood has not bad latency after the latest upgrades.
