Azure network round-trip latency statistics

Azure continuously monitors the latency (speed) of core areas of its network using internal monitoring tools as well as measurements collected by ThousandEyes, a third-party synthetic monitoring service.

How are the measurements collected?

The latency measurements are collected from ThousandEyes agents, hosted in Azure cloud regions worldwide, that continuously send network probes between themselves in 1-minute intervals. The monthly latency statistics are derived from averaging the collected samples for the month.

December 2020 round-trip latency figures

The monthly average round-trip times between Azure regions for past 30 days (ending on December 31, 2020) are shown below. The following measurements are powered by ThousandEyes.
