Fiber Optic for online gaming ?

Does anyone use fiber optic broadband to game ? Does it give much lower ping then ADSL line ?

M1 150mbit here.

There's not much difference in terms of latency, but what you do get as a benefit is much faster download speeds (5mb/s for torrents are always awesome) and less lag spike or choke, because the fiber infrastructure now is kinda underutilized. It's a much smoother experience now compared to the iffy and somewhat unreliable performance of Singnet 15mbit ADSL that I previously had.
