CompTIA Network+ N10-006 Q129

Which of the following WAN technologies is associated with high latency?

A. T1
B. Satellite
C. Cable
D. OCx

Correct Answer: B
Section: Troubleshooting

Latency in this instance is the time it takes for the signal to and from the satellite. Since signal has to travel to the satellite, then from the satellite to the ground station, and then out to the Internet (or IP WAN). Not forgetting the return trip, and processing delays.
