IP on a boat

I have previously written about my experience with wifi on a plane, today I am at the OUGN conference on a cruiseship between Oslo an Kiel which offers a satellite internet link. Simon Haslam just asked via twitter how the experience was since he was unfortunately not able to join this part of the trip but was curious. Obviously, the connection is good enough to use twitter and also do a bit of work on the internet, but due to the high latency of several seconds, it is not as interactive and usable as one might be used to. It also makes you appreciate websites that deliver as much information as possible with as little extra elements as possible. But there is no reason to complain, there are a bunch of fantastic Oracle Speakers on this boat and the view is awesome.

Anyway, here are outputs of ping and a traceroute:
