Network Latency

Network latency, or network lag, is the time it takes for data to be transferred from its source to its destination. Low network latency (meaning very fast data transmission times) is an essential feature of a high-performance blockchain or computer network because the faster the network can process data, the better it is suited for large-scale enterprise use. The number of transactions per second (TPS) that a computer network can perform is directly related to network latency.
