i kept UDP session open for ~20 hours. 60 bytes of dummy payload was sent
every 0.5s across two ISPs. Both ISPs are in the US. both connections are
broadband. packet loss is under 0.5% (~600/130,000). probably real packet
loss is ~1% because i measured packet loss according the number of missing

Is this packet loss ratio typical for the modern networks ? or is
it relatively low/high ?
