Ping time is between 2 - 23 ms instead of the usual 500 - 900 ms

The past 6 days I've been running speed tests on a few different apps/websites, and every time the results have come back it's had ping times sitting between 2 ms (frequently) and 23 ms (occasionally). Before these 6 days, my ping times have been between 800ms (frequently) and a whopping 2,300ms (occasionally). I'm on the Unlimited Silver Plan with speeds "up to 25 Mbps."

So I'm just wondering what changed to make my ping times drop by hundreds of milliseconds and if I can expect this in the future, or if it's just a happy accident these past few days? This is definitely not a complaint because I've been able to play online games with virtually no lag. Lol just wondering if I should continue to expect this.

Look out your window and see if that satellite is sitting in your back yard.  :-O
