Pings ARE full packets, and one of the best ways to measure latency. But if thats not enough, I can confirm that a cross-pacific VPN link runs significantly faster over Comcast, Cox, and XO than it does over Verizon FIOS-- Pinging across said VPN with Verizon resulted in latency around 500ms with significant jitter, while Comcast / Cox were in the 250-300ms range, and XO was around 220ms with very little jitter.
