Fibre from the end point eg House or business to the DC in the same metro should be 1-2ms

If your network is interconnecting to that fibre provider over a IXP in the same region you should see 2-3ms 

If that provider backhauls all the way to another region and then goes across peering and back then you will get your higher latency

Supersonic are MTN right?
while a network might be present at an exchange doesnt mean they peer with the route servers or the network you are on.

This is a good reminder that the value of an IXP should not be measured on volume alone but also latency and number of unique ASNs that you can peer with
