The meter reading is refreshed every 10 seconds.
Note that the quality of your connection to your ISP, the quality of their connection to the internet backbones, and the quality of all paths between them and GamesGrid will have an impact on the speed of your connection.
If your connectivity is less than optimal for your modem speed and location, then somewhere on the internet between your computer and the GamesGrid backgammon server conditions are less than optimal, and the highly interactive connections required for a pleasant game experience are not being maintained.
If network connectivity problems persists, use ping and traceroute to help isolate the source of the problem.
GamesGrid servers are located at Hurricane Electric (he.net) in Fremont, California USA (near San Francisco). Hurricane Electric provides very fast access to multiple backbones, which generally results in excellent connectivity from anywhere in the world.
