    Re: Radio Clock or Internet GMT - which should I believe?
    From: Lu Abel

    I read through the link you supplied and the only Internet services I could find mentioned was NTP which, as a previous poster mentioned, is a computer-to-computer protocol.

    For our non-American subscribers, time.gov is a NIST run site that provides a time display in a web browser.   For any reasonable high-speed internet connection (ie, non-dialup, non-satellite) the display seems to be accurate within a few tenths of a second.

    So is there a time.gov equivalent web-browser-based service available from the UK?

    The UK equivalent of NIST (time.gov) is UTC(NPL): http://www.npl.co.uk/science-technology/time-frequency/time/time-overview
