Your situation can definitely rationalise it, there are few providers of true bonded connections which you clearly need for it to be usable.

Bottom line though, a traceroute isn't going to tell anyone how consistent the latency at an ISP is.

For reference, my first hop is 10-12ms and I don't think you can get much lower than that on VDSL.

From the feedback I have seen online, I would totally trust AAISP to deliver as promised.  If money was no object, I would have chosen them.

IPv4 traceroute to google and BBC, over ADSL1 BTW-20CN
Actually 3 DSL lines, IP-bonded together in both uplink and downlink directions; gives 5 - 6 Mbps d/s combined 0.9 Mbps u/s combined)

IPv4 traceroute to google.co.uk (216.58.210.3), 64 hops max, 56 byte packets
 1  sent:28 loss:0% last:29.4 ms avg:22.981 ms
    firebrick (81.187.---.---)
...
Is that first hop, the 81.187.x.x, your own equipment?

81.187.xx.xx  is my own router.

This was run using an iPad app, so over a WLAN as no wireful connection available.

That makes the timings sort of comparable to mine, where I have around 45ms to my ISP's ntp server (interleaving enabled).  Their gateways are not particularly consistent when responding to traceroute, sometimes I get higher times from the first gateway than from the next hops.  That's why I ended up using their ntp server as my standard monitor. 

PS - weird host names at A&A - you pass through a host called "gormless" and "aimless", if I ping ntp.aa.net.uk I go through "homeless", "needless" and "weightless".

It's a little in-joke, all servers are something *less for example: clueless, bottomless, voiceless

Not that I would ever do such a daft thing. (All my machines have been singers I recent years: Domingo, Pavarotti, Robeson, etc )

All my machines are female lion king characters  :P

I seem to recall it's a tradition for machines to be considered female, in the same way that ships were/are.

@loonylion my singers may be of either gender. For some reason, powerful yet small machines, such as phones and iPads have not merited the gift of a name.

I presume people have seen the details of A&A's new 1TB package: http://aa.net.uk/news-2016-terabyte.html
