Quite. I *might* be able to get this in the UK with fibre to the premises (rare as hen's teeth), but fibre to the cabinet couldn't do it and my existing bonded ADSL connection to an exchange <100m away has no hope:

(as usual, the timing figures from the last two hops are upper bounds because those machines are going to be delaying ICMP replies as they see fit: still, it's in the 20ms range, not the 3ms range).
