Two fiber connections here to Verizon FIOS, one business, one residential:

FIOS business fiber 50M/50M in New York, Long Island to be exact, low 
4's, high 3's:

Traceroute not available without altering my Cisco ASA config.

I think it's entirely possible that 8.8.8.8 is more than one host, and 
depending on geographical location you're being routed to any of a 
number of actual hosts ;)

Speed of light from New York to California is approximately 1.3ms. I 
can't imagine all these routers don't add SOMETHING to do the latency... 
so I can't see how I can ping a California hosts in the low 3 ms area.
