Ping is the term used for a test that can be performed to see if a Internet system is in working order. By Pinging a server you can see how fast it's response time is and by pinging a large amount of computers you can work out potential bottlenecks on the Internet. If you send a ping every few minutes your ISP will not disconnect you for having idle time.
