is having a high or low ping better?
Well, if you're talking about ping time then the lower the better. TTL would be the higher the better...if I remember correctly.
Just like tunedforester said the less latency between you and the destination the better.
Low Ping numbers are better, that's how long it takes for a packet of data to travel to the destination and back. However, ping times can be very decieving for any sort of troubleshooting if needed. Try the "tracert" command and that will show you the ping time between hops(routers/switches/servers/etc.). This is a better diagnostic as it will show you if there are any peeks in the time and if it is part of a network that your service provider or destination server can control.
