Public Time Servers

 

Public Time Servers use the Network Time Protocol (NTP) is a protocol for synchronizing the clocks of computer systems and networking equipment over packet-switched, variable-latency data networks. It is designed particularly to resist the effects of variable latency to keep all equipment in sync.

 

Below is a list of public time servers available for use.
