How is Ping or Latency?
It is the amount of time it takes a unit of data to travel from source to destination. So the lower the latency is the much better it is. Really important when it comes to gaming.

What is Packet Loss?
The percentage of units of data that are lost whilst travelling from source to destination. It is important to hear what someone says in the order they say it and it is also important to hear all of what they're saying.
